Pointon did their hopes of avoiding the drop out of the Boston Saturday League top tier with victory over fellow strugglers Boston College.

In the only Taylors Garages Premier Division game of the weekend, Pointon overcame the College 6-2 at home.

Ian Jacquest and Nathan Wilson both scored doubles, while Dom Kew and Ben Dobson were also on target for Pointon who extended their lead over their opponents to seven points.

The College replied through Kieran Rodgers and Nathan Rivett in a week where 10 of the 18 scheduled league matches fell foul of the weather.

* With Railway’s game at Donington postponed, Fulbeck United moved to the top of the Taylors Peugeot Division One table following a 2-0 away win at Fosdyke.

Jason Barratt and Dylan Grocock grabbed the goals to keep United on track for promotion.

* Pointon Reserves moved into second spot in Taylors Ford Division Two following a 4-0 away win at Swineshead A and are now four points behind leaders Sibsey.

* There were no doubts concerning Northgate Olympic’s home match in Taylors Vauxhall Division Three when their 3G pitch proved its worth.

The Sleaford-based side brushed aside Spalding Harriers 4-0.

Goals from Daniel Broughton, Ryan Smith, Gareth Tomlinson and Rob Spencer did the damage for Northgate who moved up to fourth.
