Saffron Move Out Of The Division Two Drop Zone With A Win At Meltis Corinthians Reserves
Kempston took their unbeaten ways to six games to remain in third slot in the league standings by senting Campton Reserves to their sixth consecutive away defeat with a 5-2 home win thanks to braces of goals from Pjerin Lustri and Akeem Damon-Lendor plus an own goal with the visitors replies coming via Alex Toye and Dan Wilshaw.
Second place Meppershall Jurassic promotion hopes took a big knock when beaten 0-3 at home by a Clifton side coming up with their third away win on the bounce, Alex Fisher opening the scoring twenty minutes into the game which was then doubled ten minutes later by Barry Hallybone until Fisher with his second goal of the evening fifteen minutes from time sealed the points for the visitors, The Jurassic Boys cause not being helped by wins for both Marabese Ceramics and Great Barford, The Tilers moving up into third slot via a 3-1 home victory over Marston Shelton Rovers, Denver Donaldson slotting them in front after just four minutes until Jordan Carbonnelle levelled matters for The Rovers just seven minutes later and that's the way it stayed until the 87th minute when Darren Payne regained the lead for the home side which was added to by a second Donaldson goal two minutes later.
For Great Barford it was a 5-3 home win over Blue Chip who are now without a win in their last seven outings and down into the bottom four of the league standings, first half goals from Luke Haveley, Gary Russon and Mark Harlow against replies from Francis Vaugham and Mark Levy saw the home lead 3-2 at the break before further strikes from Russon, and Nick Atterwater took them 5-2 clear until Tom Liptrot netted the final goal of the night.
Meanwhile Saffron were lifting themselves out of the drop zone with a 4-1 win at Meltis Corinthians Reserves, 3-0 ahead at the break with two goals from Shezad Sattar and a strike from Mohammed Rahman, the second half saw Sattar complete his hattrick before the home goal arrived late on, via Neville Allen
In the evenings lone encounter Meppershall AFC took their unbeaten ways to six games by sharing the points in a 0-0 draw at Flitwick Town Reserves.
