THE battle for top spot in the Soccersixes Wednesday night six-a side football league saw first-placed Coach and Horses take on second-place Davcelona.

This intense battle saw Davcelona gain the upper hand with a lovely individual effort from Luke Ireland.

Later in the first-half Luke Bishop for Davcelona bagged their second goal with a superb left-footed effort which went in off the post.

The second-half started well for Coach and Horses.

Dan Clarke broke on the counter attack and tucked away their first goal of the night.

Just when Coach and Horses started to look like they were getting back into the game, two goals in quick succession for Davcelona put the game to bed ending 4-1.

Davcelona now move one point clear at the top.

The second game of the night saw the newest team William Parker look for their first win of their campaign. They were up against Daventry Olympic.

Mark Fletcher was on target for William Parker scoring twice in the early exchanges.

But a few mistakes in the opposition’s defence saw Daventry Olympic score three goals before half-time.

Both team continued to apply pressure throughout the second-half but Daventry Olympic came out on top with a 6-3 victory.

In the final game of the night, The Dons played off against Pen Island in what was a thrilling game.

Pen Island took an early two-goal lead thanks to Kevin Moore and were looking comfortable for the first 10 minutes.

But after confusion in their defence, Cory Bailey was let through on goal and brought The Dons back into the game at 2-1.

After another heavy spell in the Dons half, Pen Island retained their two-goal advantage – thanks to a set piece from Andy Moore.

Within a minute of the second-half Dean Lange struck a superb shot with the outside of his right foot which swerved into the back of the net.

In the closing stages of the game both teams came extremely close and with five minutes to go with the last goal of the game Lee Creswell was on target to bring home the 4-2 victory for Pen Island.
