All to play for in league

GOING into the penultimate game of the season it was all to play for at the top of the Soccersixes six-a-side league at the Daventry Leisure Centre.

The top three teams were all within one point of each other going into the night.

Dropping points this week could have been disastrous for any of the teams.

The first match saw Pen Island play off against William Parker in what turned out to be a one-sided affair.

Kevin Moore got Pen Island off to an unbelievable start with a goal straight from the kick off. He added another shortly after.

After losing two goals in quick succession William Parker started to create a few chances of their own.

Mark Fletcher looked certain to score when he was brought down in the box resulting in a penalty. He placed the ball out of the reach of the goalkeeper to score for William Park.

Mark Hyde made it three for Pen Island with a shot outside the box that found its way past the goalkeeper.

Kevin Moore scored his hat-trick in the closing stages ending the game 4-1 to Pen Island.

Coach and Horses had a must-win game against Daventry Olympic.

The game started well for Coach and within the first five minutes Aaron Crampton crossed to Dan Clarke who smashed the ball into the roof of the net.

Shortly after Aaron Crampton fired a shot which hit the back of the net making the game 2-0.

Going into the second-half Coach and Horses applied more pressure and pushed for a third goal.

Steve Jones was played through on goal to make it his first goal of the New Year, extending their lead to three goals. Daventry Olympic scored an impressive consolation goal.

The final game of the night saw Davcelona play the formidable Dons team.

Out of the three matches this was always going to be the toughest game of the night and Davcelona needed the win.

After five minutes, Luke Ireland played a good ball through The Dons’ defence which found Aaron Bishop one-on one with the keeper.

He slotted the ball into the bottom right hand corner to take his team one up.

Shortly after the first goal Luke Ireland was on target with his left foot to put Davcelona into a two-goal lead.

But after a mix-up in the Davcelona defence Cory Bailey who found himself through on goal brought The Dons back into the game.

The final goal came with 10 minutes to go when Dean Lange took a shot from 20 yards out. This was dramatically saved by the goalkeeper who could only punch the ball away.

The ball landed at the feet of Aaron Bishop who fired into an open goal for a 2-2 final score.
