YOUNG DONS U/9s 7 SLEAFORD TOWN COLTS U/s 1: Dons were in seventh heaven after delivering a flawless display in their first-ever cup match.

Tyler McKendrick opened the scoring in the Onyx Cup clash with an accurate strike, before Mason Shores doubled the lead with a fine turn and shot from the edge of the penalty area.

McKendrick then added a third, before Sleaford scored a goal of their own with a strong run and finish.

Dons gradually asserted more pressure in the second half with McKendrick completing his hat-trick. Hayden Dugdale then added a fifth with a fierce low shot and Shores netted his second following a goalmouth scramble.

The goal of the game came right at the end when Jacob Drew slotted a neat pass through to Luke Hood, who in turn moved the ball selflessly across to Shores to complete his treble.

HOLBEACH UTD YELLOW U/16s 3

HUNGATE ROVERS U/16s 3

GEORGE Stainfield’s late strike earned Holbeach a thrilling draw with the league leaders.

On a cold, foggy morning, Hungate went ahead inside three minutes. Yellow battled back though and equalised when Shaun Weightman headed home from a corner.

Keeper Marcus Clifton was forced to make a clutch of top saves either side of the break, before Stainfield put Yellow ahead from the rebound of his initial penalty.

Rovers hit back within seven minutes and then took the lead with a cracking volley, but Stainfield capped another workman-like performance with his second goal to wrap up a point.

HOLBEACH UNITED U/15s 2

AFTER a three week break the Tigers returned to action – and produced probably their best football of the season.

An uneven surface and thick fog made Holbeach’s passing style even more pleasing, as they dominated the first half without capitalising and were unfortunate to go behind from a superbly struck 25-yard free kick.

But they didn’t panic and were rewarded when Lachasseigne hammered home to equalise following a goalmouth scramble.

Uglow and Whyatt managed to hit every piece of woodwork between them with several chances, before Philip popped up with the winner ten minutes from time.

MOORLANDS RAILWAY U/14s 1

IN-FORM Holbeach cruised to an impressive cup success.

Filip Pilarz gave Holbeach the lead in a pretty close first period, only for Moorlands to level soon after.

A rocky ten minute spell followed for the young Tigers, but they rode the storm and Luke Dobbie put them ahead before the break.

Lewis Steadman’s well-taken strikee gave Holbeach a 3-1 lead early in the second period, before Thomas van Bragt and Declan Earth (2) sealed their passage.

HOLBEACH UNITED U/12s 1

GREENBANK U/12s 3

FLAWLESS in the league, Holbeach suffered their second cup defeat of the season.

The young Tigers paid their opponents too much respect early on and allowed them to take the lead on 20 minutes.

That seemed to spark Holbeach into action, but they were hit by a second Greenbank goal before the break.

Greenbank made the game safe with a third goal from a corner, only for Jamal Nyang to notch a late consolation in a well-contested clash.

WYBERTON COLTS U/12s 10

WOODHALL SPA U/12s 0

CLASSY Colts turned on the style in this Mid Lincs Cup tie.

They opened the scoring inside five minutes and racked up an incredible 54 shots on target in the game.

The best of the goals came from central defender Scott Waterfall, who picked the ball up and side-stepped two players and curled in a left footer.

The other scorers were Jenson Ball (2), Louis Gosling (2), Riley Hall (2), Jack Gurney, Callum Clarke and Mitchell Teft.

HOLBEACH UNITED U/11s 9

BOSTON UTD DSS BLACK U/11s 0

A COMPREHENSIVE performance allowed Holbeach to get back to winning ways in style.

After making an impressive start, Jordan Olive crossed for Harry Collishaw to open the scoring.

Harry Machin scored the second after Boston failed to clear a corner, while Liam Sandall latched onto a through ball to bury number three.

Collishaw’s second after the break put the game beyond Boston and Sandall added a quick brace to complete his hat-trick.

Two late strikes from sub Lewis Turner and a deserved ninth goal from man-of-the-match Olive completed the scoring.

BOSTON U/10s 0

SPALDING ATHLETIC U/10s 6

SPALDING got back to winning ways with an emphatic team performance.

Jamie Mills opened the scoring with a cool finish, Sam Bayly tucked home the second from inside the box and Harry Loveridge scored his first goal for the club from a tight angle seconds before half time.

Captain Jack Holland’s man-of-the-match performance then provided a platform for a solid second half display.

Toby Noakes got the fourth with a stunning volley from well outside the box, while Bayly got the fifth after some lovely build-up play with Samuel Burden.

Mills completed the scoring with another fine finish, as Athletic moved up to fourth in the league.

BOURNE TOWN CLARET U/10s 1

HOLBEACH UNITED U/10s 0

HOLBEACH were edged out in the battle of two high-flying sides.

Bourne attacked from the off and it took the young Tigers a while to settle. They tested the Claret keeper a number of times after that, but fell behind to a scrambled goal before the break.

The young Tigers gave it their all after the break, but couldn’t find a breakthrough. In the end they were indebted to keeper Charlie King, who made some cracking saves.

HOLBEACH UNITED U/9s 3

CLENCHWARTON U/9s 0

FOR the third week in a row table toppers Holbeach fired three goals without reply in a near-perfect display.

They were ahead within five minutes, when James Clark’s super pass found Jack Cunnington, who slotted home.

It was soon 2-0 when Callum Hoole played a great ball in to Clark, who rounded the keeper to bury his 23rd goal of the campaign.

At the other end, man-of-the-match Jenson Patterson made three sensational stops.

The final goal came before the break – and it was a cracker. A great flowing move involving Jack Smith, Thomas Moxon, Alfie Wilson, Hoole and Clark allowed Cunnington to latch onto a great pass and rifle the ball into the top corner.

The biggest cheer of the second half came when referee Bruce Patterson lost his balance in the middle of the centre circle and ended up in a heap.
