ESTOVER U13S 2 HOLBEACH UTD U13S 4: Holbeach booked their place in the League Cup final with an emphatic win over Estover.

Liam Sandall latched on to a neat cross from Liam Scales to put the visitors 1-0 up, but they were pegged back to 1-1 on the stroke of half time.

The young Tigers then fell behind early in the second period, but they soon equalised when Sandall tapped home.

Holbeach cranked up the pressure and went ahead through Scales, before Harry Collishaw scored a penalty to set up a final with Deeping.

COATES U14S 0 
SPALDING ORANGE U14S 4

Four-midable Spalding enjoyed an impressive win in windy conditions.

Josh Stevenson and Daniel Maloney scored to put Orange 2-0 ahead at half time. Stevenson then doubled his tally after the break, before man-of-the-match Harry Barker also got his name on the scoresheet.

WISBECH ACORNS U15S 0 
PINCHBECK UTD U15S 5

Five-star Pinchbeck made hay on the unfamiliar surroundings of Wisbech’s 3G surface.

Having taken some time to adjust to the pitch, United finally went ahead a minute before half time when Jonny Lockie tapped home a rebound from Elliott Lea’s shot.

Lockie made it 2-0 early in the second half, then Nuno Pires made it 3-0 with a nice lob.

It was 4-0 when a 20-yard drive from Jamie Wroniack found the net, before the prolific Lockie completed his hat-trick with a long range blast.

YAXLEY U16S 4 
HOLBEACH UTD U16S 0

Holbeach finally played their first game of 2014 – but this cup semi-final was too steep a hurdle for them to clear.

The young Tigers started well against a talented Yaxley outfit and had a penalty claim turned down after Ben Gibbons was clattered in the box.

However, after the 25 minute mark the ball somehow ended up in the net from a Yaxley corner.

The Cuckoos then went onto score a further three goals in the last 15 minute of the first half, which left Holbeach with a mountain to climb.

The young Tigers played with pride after the break, but couldn’t produce a comeback.

PINCHBECK UTD U14S 4 
FISHTOFT U14S 0

Pinchbeck roared into the semi-finals of the Lincs Cup in real style.

Callum Davies used his quick feet skills to find Layton Maddison in the box to slot home the opener. Callum Clark then curled a great ball into the feet of the leading scorer Tapi Shahwe, who blasted number two into the net.

Pinchbeck had to wait until the second period to add to their lead, when great link up between Josh Lawrence, Davies, Clark and Maddison teed-up Shahwe to net.

The scoring was complete when Maddison found Shahwe, who completed another hat-trick.

United will visit HBW for their semi final on on March 9.
