Two late goals eventually settled a seven-goal thriller as Spalding Harriers kept up their 100 per cent start to the Taylors Service Garages Boston Saturday League Division Three season.

Aidan Doherty scored twice while Morgan Taylor and Callum Parry were also on target in their 4-3 home win against Leverton Reserves.

The Harriers started the match brightly but it was Leverton who opened the scoring when Jacob Wright found the top corner from 25 yards out with his weaker 
foot.

Leverton squandered further chances before the Spalding side made them pay for their failure in front of goal when they equalised before the break.

The Harriers started the second half on the front foot and they deservedly took the lead but Leverton roared back with Grant Huber’s double.

As tempers rose, The Harriers were awarded a penalty which they duly converted and another strike ten minutes later secured maximum points for the fourth time this season.

But Old Doningtonians Reserves suffered another defeat, this time at Friskney Reserves who went 2-0 up through Alex Jacobs and Donovan Vickers.

The Dons hit back in the second half when Luke Barnett reduced the arrears and then Brandon Harker levelled the scores.

The match looked like heading for a draw until a late penalty rocked Old Dons as they appealed in vain but Vickers kept his cool to slot home and secure a 3-2 win.

FC Hammers dealt a surprise blow to Wyberton A when they beat the leaders 3-2 with Steen Bates and Jason Allen replying.

Fishtoft Cup holders Benington edged a 1-0 win at Old Doningtonians in the quarter-finals.

Fishtoft produced a nightmare second-half performance as they fell to a 6-2 home defeat at the hands of Swineshead who struck four times after the break. Wyberton Reserves beat Spilsby Town 5-1 while Old Leake edged out Friskney 4-3.

Spalding Town made it five wins out of six games in Division Two of the ChromaSport & Trophies Peterborough & District League.

Two goals in each half saw off Peterborough PL United at the Castle Sports Complex.

Markus Parry, Tomasz Rabiega, James Thorold and substitute Tom Cherry got on the scoresheet.

Moulton Harrox are back on top of the Premier Division table with a ninth consecutive league win.

They bounced back from defeat in the Lincolnshire FA Junior Cup by recording a 5-4 victory over Riverside at Broad Lane.

Billy King (2), Ian Bradbury, Ollie Maltby and Joe Townsend got the goals.

Pinchbeck United kept their fine run going with a 5-0 win against Stilton United.

Dan Woods (2), Tony Edwards, Ashley Murrell and Luke Gardner were on target.

In Division One, Spalding United Reserves lost 4-2 at home to Warboys Town who overturned a half-time deficit. Jamie Cartlidge and Robert Relf struck for the Tulips.
