FOOTBALL: Seven-up for hot Harrox

MAGIC Moulton Harrox smashed Peterborough and District League Premier Division basement boys Alconbury for seven on Saturday.

Ben Allen led the charge with a hat-trick, while Martin Gordon (2), Bobby Patterson and Tom Panton were also on target.

Also gunning for the same honour are Deeping Rangers Reserves, who eased past Coates Athletic 3-0 at Outgang Road.

Anthony Graves, Daniel Ireland and Ian Bradbury grabbed the goals.

At the other end of the table, Crowland Town eased any lingering fears of relegation with a 2-0 triumph over Leverington Sports at Snowden Field. They were fired by goals from Christopher Challis and Hugh Smith.

Down in Division One, Long Sutton Athletic racked up a magnificent seven to stun second-placed Stilton United in their own backyard.

The Magpies boasted seven different scorers, with Alan Burch, Jake Clitheroe, James Ward, Matthew Radeloff, Matthew Cawthorn, Ryan Lennon and Sean Copeland all bagging in the 7-2 win.

Langtoft United stay third following a 4-0 home success over Hampton Sports.

Daniel Morris (2), Luke Newbold and Tony Wooding netted to keep their outside chances of promotion alive.
