Josh Baker was the star of the show as hosts Long Sutton won Division One in the latest staging of the Lincolnshire Friendly League.

They won all six of their matches without conceding a single goal.

Baker scored 10 of his side’s 14 goals as they produced their usual free-flowing hockey to win in style.

They began with a 3-0 victory over Sleaford Foxes, Macy Carr slotting home the opener.

Baker then saw an effort deflected in for an own goal before combining with Carr for the third. Carr’s penalty corner found Baker to fire home.

Next up was the local derby against Spalding Tigers, where it was Long Sutton – and particularly Baker – who were roaring.

Baker’s fine double secured a 2-0 victory for Long Sutton as his side ran out comfortable winners.

Long Sutton A then took on Long Sutton B in a game played out 24 hours earlier in training.

Tyler Hagan was outstanding in the B team goal but goals from the prolific Carr and Baler were enough for a 2-0 win.

Another 2-0 win followed against Lincoln A where Baker grabbed an impressive double.

A classy moment from Baker set up another 2-0 win over Sleaford Movers, firing in a reverse stick shot after beating the oncoming defence.

It was quickly followed by a fine finish from Matt Goodley, who ran through the defence before slotting home under the keeper.

That left Sutton to take on BD Dragons in their final match, looking to keep their 100 per cent record intact.

An injury to Charlotte Maplethorpe, who had run her legs off all day and controlled the Sutton midfield, meant she had to be substituted.

Jacob Synnott was also injured but the Sutton super-show continued with a 3-0 victory.

Goodley fed Carr for the opener before another Baker double sealed a sixth win of the day.

nSpalding Tigers won four of their matches to finish third, one point behind Lincoln A.

Joe Maltby’s goal gave them a 1-0 win over Sleaford Movers in their opener before their 2-0 defeat by hosts Long Sutton.

Spalding’s biggest win of the day was a 3-0 success against Sleaford Foxes where James Mayhew (2) and Cam Ibrahim found the target.

Bailey Harker and Max Bland found the net in a 2-0 win over BD Dragons but their bid to finish second was hampered by a 2-1 defeat against Lincoln A.

Spalding deserved to take something from the match and made it 1-1 when Mayhew found the net but Lincoln went on to grab the winner.

The Tigers bounced back to end the day with a 1-0 victory over Long Sutton B, thanks to Bland’s early goal.

nNewly-promoted Long Sutton B won two of their matches, both thanks to Josh Balding doubles.

They got off to a winning start when getting the better of BD Dragons and later beat Sleaford Foxes by the same 2-0 scoreline.

However, they failed to score in any of their other four games where they tasted defeat on each occasion.

BD Dragons’ only victory came with a 2-0 win over bottom of the table Sleaford Foxes.

BD Griffins did better in Division Two though, finishing third as Boston and Louth filled the top two spots.

Spalding Lions were fifth, drawing three and losing the other two of their five matches.
