TROWBRIDGE & DISTRICT LEAGUE DIVISION THREE: Perfect Holt share pole position
1:30pm Monday 9th September 2013 in Sport News
IT MAY be early days, but Ben Hogg will be pleased with the start that his Holt side have made to date.
An 8-3 win for the villagers over The Stiffs means that they have won three on the bounce and can claim a share of the top spot in Division Three with White Horse FC.
Holt ran riot in the opening half hour and were 6-0 up at one stage before the Stiffs scored two first half goals to make the half-time score look a little bit more respectable.
Dan Cockerill put Holt in front, Dan Gibbons made it 2-0. Tom Baker scored twice in quick succession to take the score to 4-0, goals from Chris Brown and Ryan Godridge completed the first-half scoring for Holt prior to Chris Giles with two, one of which came from the penalty, which reduced the arrears for the Stiffs.
The second half was a lot more even. Tom Wade added a seventh for Holt, Tony Patterson scored a third for the Stiffs before a second of afternoon from Wade made up Holt’s tally.
Drummer Boy 3 Polenez Westbury 3
AFTER two heavy losses for Drummer Boy, they hit some form as they twice came from behind to earn a point from a thrilling 3-3 draw with Polenez Westbury.
After scoring his first goal in three seasons last weekend for Polenez, Fatmir Kirti scored a second in as many games to open the scoring for his side and give them a half-time lead.
Drummer Boy restored parity in the second period with Callum Simpson scoring fro mthe spot to make it one each.
Shortly after a second from Simpson put the home team ahead. Polenez fought back and drew themselves level through Robert Pawlowski.
With Polenez now in the ascendency it was no surprise that they regained the lead, Bartzomiej Fedyk putting them 3-2 ahead and with time running out they looked certain to claim their second win in two outings.
But it wasn’t to be as a late penalty for the Drummer Boy was tucked away by Callum Simpson whose third of the game saw him complete his hat-trick and hand his team a deserved share of the spoils a game that was well refereed by David Fiddy in his first ever game on the league.
Marshfield FC 2 Trowbridge Rangers 1
MARSHFIELD defeated Trowbridge Rangers 2-1 to collect their second win in as many games.
Shane Andrews' ninth-minute header from a corner but the villagers ahead, however his effort was rubbed out by Cameron Thomas whose goal for Rangers took the teams into the interval locked together at 1-1.
After the break, chances came and went for both sides before Andy Jefferies struck Marshfield’s winner in the 83rd minute.
White Horse FC 6 United FC 0
A THIRD win for White Horse in as many games sees the league’s newcomers continue to set the pace at the top of the table.
They have already claimed 4-0 and 8-0 victories in their opening two games and the Westbury-based side followed those wins up with a 6-0 triumph at home to United FC.
United suffered the worse possible start when Agim Iljazi put through his own net to give White Horse the lead.
Kane Scott made it 2-0, Ross Parker added number three.
A sixth goal of the season for Dan Cox extended the lead further before Ross Parker scored his second of the afternoon to see the Horse gallop to a 5-0 interval lead.
After the break, United fared a lot better and only conceded the one goal which came courtesy of Steve Munday, whose second goal of the season made up the winners half dozen.
Zeals FC 6 The Lamb Reserves 2
HAVING spent a few years in the Yeovil League, a change of scenery for Zeals FC has seen the villagers switch to the Trowbridge League.
A visit from fellow newcomers The Lamb Reserves handed them their first-ever league success which came virtue of a 6-2 win.
The teams couldn’t be separated at the break as they went in at the interval locked together at one-apiece Lee Frisby equalising for the Lamb after Scott Talbot had given Zeals the lead.
It was one-way traffic in the second half with Zeals finding the scoring boots, James Weeks top scoring for the villagers with a three timer.
Talbot netted a second of the game and Zeals half dozen was completed by Jordan Shorrecks.
Will Harford replied with Lamb’s second of the game, but like Frisby’s first-half effort it proved to be little more than a consolation.
