Moulton Harrox showed the stuff of champions by bouncing back from two successive defeats to win the big game of the day in the Premier Division.

Harrox had been beaten by fellow title challengers Peterborough Sports Reserves and Pinchbeck United before travelling to AFC Stanground Sports who started Saturday in second place.

But Harrox jumped back into second by securing a 4-3 win thanks to goals from Marcus Parry (2), Ashley Coddington and Corban Oldham.

Parry stepped up from Division Two side Spalding Town in the summer and is already the top flight’s top scorer with 14 goals.

Sports Reserves are up to third following a 6-1 demolition of Holbeach United Reserves.

There were six different scorers including ex-Tigers striker Stuart Eason.

Pinchbeck are moving on upwards as well.

Ollie Maltby’s hat-trick helped them to a 6-0 win over Wisbech Town Reserves.

Liam Ogden (2) and Tom Panton sealed their seventh successive victory.

Simkus Virginijus also claimed a hat-trick in Crowland Town’s 4-2 win over Stilton United.

Deeping Rangers Reserves shared six goals with Sawtry. Dan Evans, Tom Hutton and Dan Woods were on target.

Langtoft United secured a second win on the trot as second-half goals from Ashley Firth (penalty) and Tiago Camilo clinched a 2-1 comeback win away to Leverington Sports.

Vikings manager Ryan Hunnings said: “It was a real battle but it always is when you come out to Leverington.

“It was great to see the fightback, being behind was very harsh.

“We played some great football but it was pleasing to see we didn’t stop playing and our heads didn’t drop.

“The win was nothing less than we deserved as we dominated possession and had the better chances.

“It’s great to see the lads playing with a smile on their faces again.”

South Holland sides are now leading the way in three divisions.

Moulton Harrox Reserves extended their perfect start in Division One with a 5-1 win over Oakham United’s second team.

The goals were shared between Tom Elderkin, Daniel Lambe-Hyner, Laurence Price, Louis Steadman and Bobby Patterson.

First-half efforts by Gavin Phillips (2) and George Leatherland put Holbeach Bank on top of Division Four thanks to a 3-1 victory at FC Peterborough Reserves.

Daniel Bergin and Robert Lewsley scored after the break for Division Five front-runners Holbeach United A to beat Glinton & Northborough Reserves 2-0.
