Selston’s inactivity gave TEVERSAL the chance to go back to the top of the table which they took in a thrilling game which burst to life in the last ten minutes. David Cockerill had given them the lead on 18 minutes and Josh Radford made it two eleven minutes later. Scoring wise that was it until eleven minutes from the end when Daryll Thomas started a spree of three goals in as many minutes when he reduced the deficit for visiting DUNKIRK. Phil Griffiths immediately made it 3-1 followed within a minute by George Harrison closing the gap to one goal again. Daryll Thomas levelled things up in the 84th minute but Khyle Sargent snatched the points for a Teversal side who had six players cautioned, two minutes into stoppage time for a 4-3 win.
There was a second half scoring spree at CLIFTON ALL WHITES as well. Jevin Seaton’s 35th minute strike for them was the only goal of a tight first half. Then Tyrell Shannon-Lewis increased the lead on 44 and Goran Seymour rattled in a late hat-trick. Tiza Maninga got a 76th minute consolation for ARNOLD TOWN who are not enjoying their season at all.
A tremendous crowd of 104 saw ANSTEY NOMADS comfortable beat visiting RADFORD with, once again, all the goals coming in the second half. James Ireland started the ball rolling in the 56th minute; Ellis Preston hit a second nine minutes later, and Mason Brown completed the scoring on 72 minutes.
Mitch Warner left it until the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the game to hit the winner for ten men BLABY & WHETSTONE ATHLETIC as they enjoyed a 2-1 home success over GRAHAM STREET PRIMS. Joe Marshall put Blaby ahead in the 12th minute but a Josh Lee penalty twenty minutes from the end had restored parity.
Nothing seems to be going right for RADCLIFFE OLYMPIC this season and they suffered yet another home defeat. Ryan Foster’s goal towards the end of the first half gave AYLESTONE PARK the lead and a brace from Sam Carline in the second half completed a 3-0 win for them.
There was late drama at STAPENHILL as well where Michael Dunne’s 88th minute leveller grabbed a point for visiting BELPER UNITED. Pete Martin and Lewis Campbell had scored for the home team in the first half and Ben Rushby had replied for the visitors.
BORROWASH VICTORIA had a comprehensive 4-0 win at WEST BRIDGFORD with Shay Wiggins, Sacha Markelic and a brace from Adam Morley being the scorers, whilst floodlight problems at nearby KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE didn’t prevent the game eventually grinding it’s way to a goal-less conclusion with visitors BIRSTALL UNITED.
A nasty injury to an ASHBY IVENHOE player after about half an hour led to their game at BIRSTALL UNITED being abandoned due to the lengthy delay in waiting for the arrival of an ambulance.
