Spartak 2

Plantation Pumas 8

A TOBY Salmon shot crept over the line to give the Puma’s the lead, followed by a smart finish from Louis Temblett. Spartak replied with a goal of their own to put the match back in the balance. Tom Keogh’s long range shot eased the pressure, Salmon got his second and Harry Dorrian’s fantastic lob made it 5-1. Spartak responded once again but the match was finally put to bed as Salmons completed a double hat-trick.


Spartak 78 4

West Wratting 1

THE hosts took the lead after two minutes through Hudson’s free kick. It was doubled seven minutes later as pressure paid off and Brad scored. Spartak scored early in the second half to extend their lead as Lukas was well placed to finish off a counter-attack. Wratting grabbed one back but any hopes that they might get something out of the game were snuffed when Lukas scored after good work from Travis and Ethan.

Bottisham 1

Plantation Pumas 6

Early pressure was rewarded when Alex Hall fired his team ahead and when Matthew Bloyce’s long range shot came back off the bar Hall was on hand to smash home the second. Bottisham pulled a goal back at the start of the second half but the rest of the match was one-way traffic. Josh Bates added a third following a corner and then Matthew Thomas scored three goals in quick succession to seal an impressive win.


Spartak 78 Blacks 4

Cottenham United 2

SPARTAK started the game with a two-man advantage and took the lead through Harry Stark. Nicky Thompson then found Jack Holliday and his cross was turned into his own net by a defender under pressure from Will Quaresima. Cottenham were reduced to eight men because of an injury and Spartak began to sense an easy victory. But Cottenham had other ideas, scoring two goals, one from long range and the other from a near post header. After a serious lecture from Spartak manager, Colin Chappell, Holliday shook off two defenders and struck a left footed shot from the edge of the box to restore the lead. In the final quarter of the match Quaresima sealed the points for the home side.
