LOCAL FOOTBALL: Second semi in a week for Harrox

Have your say

PETEBOROUGH & DISTRICT FOOTBALL LEAGUE: Moulton Harrox’s hopes of an impressive treble remain very much alive after they thrashed Uppingham Town 4-0 to reach the last four of the PFA Senior Cup.

Having booked a semi-final place in the Lincs Junior Cup seven days earlier, Harrox started superbly when Martin Gordon lashed home a long-range stunner (25).

Although the away side had more possession, Joe Townsend added the second for Moulton on the stroke of half time.

It was more of the same after the break as sub Andy Law charged down a clearance before firing home number three.

The winger, who won the cup with Pinchbeck United last season, then lobbed home a 25-yard stunner to round-off the scoring.

• Long Sutton Athletic produced their worst performance of the season as they lost 3-1 at home to lowly Stamford Bels in Division One.

Having fallen behind in the first half, Ryan Lennon’s well-taken strike made it 1-1 at the interval.
However, the Magpies shipped two sloppy goals in the second half as their promotion hopes took a hefty hit.

• Pinchbeck United Reserves’ bid for glory in the PFA Challenge Cup ended with a 7-3 home loss against Sutton Bridge United – who cruise into the last four.

A stunning hat-trick from Ben Partridge – including a 25-yard corker – and a Jake Lally effort put Bridge 4-0 ahead in the first period.

Jamie Cartlidge did pull one back for Pinchbeck with a header, making it 4-1 at the interval.
After the break Joseph Sutton waltzed through to make it 5-1 to Sutton – and although Sam Atkinson and Aiden Moore pulled two back, a Kurt Scott double eased the away side home.
