Falcons 4

A remarkable game in atrocious conditions saw blades fight back from 3-0 and 4-2 down to claim a fully-deserved point against last season’s double winners.

Blades could have taken an early lead but then found themselves 3-0 down before two goals from Jack Bond took it to 3-2 at half-time.

Falcons increased their lead to 4-2 before Jack Creaney’s piledriver reduced the deficit.

With man of the match Dylan Jones having another superb game, Matthias Nyakawanu leveled for Blades in the closing stages.

An excellent end to end game with both teams playing great football inspite of the awful conditions.

Moulton 3

A terrific end-to-end match with both teams playing good football.

The first-half saw Daventry have two ‘goals’ disallowed – one for Blaine Chatwin and one for Thomas Clements.

Both teams hit the post and at half-time it was nil-nil.

The second-half saw a Qskar Challice superb strike to make it one all.

Then a great free kick from Moulton saw the lead go to them and a decision to go for goal saw the opponents score in the last minute.

Man of the Match was Blaine Chatwin.

Saxons 1 ISE Lodge 3

Magnificent Saxons gave ISE Lodge the fright of their lives and came so close to causing one of the cup upsets of the round.

The work-rate, attitude and commitment of the Saxons players rattled their higher league opponents.

Saxons deservedly went in at the break all-square following Dylan Overton’s excellent equaliser – his second goal in as many games.

But in the second-half, Saxons sat back too deep and conceded possession too easily too many times.

This allowed ISE to get on top, dominate possession and edge ahead with a second goal before wrapping the game up with a third just before the final whistle to settle the tie.

Saxons exit the competition with immense credit with heads held high.

Man-of-the-match went to Decklyn Hartley for a string of fine saves.

Ise Lodge 4

Three goals in the opening 15 minutes from the visitors killed the game as a contest.

Blades improved after the break and started to show a little of their old form with some neat interchange in midfield.

Ise scored again in the final minutes and were comfortable winners.

Blades’ man of the match was George Jackson whose performance was full of industry and heart.
