Coningsby scored a goal in each half to subject Skegness Town Reserves to their sixth Boston and District League Premier Division defeat.

Goals came from Dwayne Sweet and Jack O’Brien (see separate match report).

For the second week running, the current champions failed to gain ground on the front runners, this time bottom placed team Pointon providing a shock.

Tom Williams converted a spot kick in the first minute for the visitors but Swineshead did pull it back to go in level at half time.

Pointon retook the lead in the second period through Nathan Wilson but they were unable to hang on to it again and eventually the game finished 2-2.

It was a miserable afternoon for the Swineshead club as their Reserves also lost to current leaders Boston College in Division One.

College goals came from Craig Gosling, Andrew Thompson, Reece Young and Jamie Dawson. The first half was pretty even with College taking a slender 2-1 lead into the break, but the second half belonged to the students as they began to dominate.

Josh Sands and Tom Ebberley produced the goals for Swineshead Reserves to end the game 6-2.

In Division Two, Billinghay Athletic Reserves were one up at the interval courtesy of a goal from Tom Bullimore, and Charlie Gilbert found the back of the net after the restart to give them a two goal advantage.

It was end to end stuff but there were no further goals until the last five minutes when Park United scored a consolation.

Danny Long and George Sharpe scored with a goal in each half for Pointon Reserves against Coningsby Reserves.

Railway Athletic continued their march, having only dropped two points so far this season, recording an emphatic victory over Swineshead Institute A Team.

Curtis Yeatman (4), Nicky Frost (2), Brandon Norman and Steve Appleby were all on target for the Railway, whilst Dean Seiner scored a brace for the home side.

Northgate Olympic secured a 3-1 victory over Boston Titans in Division Three.

Dan Sansam hoofed the ball over the line after the home side had fallen two goals behind, but Northgate were not done and they went on to score again ending hopes of a draw for the Boston side.

Pointon A won a hard fought for point in their 3-3 draw with Leverton Reserves.

The visitors saw their 2-0 lead disappear, leaving it at deadlock when the half time whistle blew.

The visitors again took the lead but Gary Handley sealed his hat trick, and the point, for the Pointon team.

In the Lincoln Village Trophy, Billinghay Athletic lost 6-2 to Cherry Willingham – Adam Gilbert and Montel Savanhu scoring Billinghay’s goals.

Heckington Millers did make it through to the next round though with a convincing 6-2 win over Fulbeck. Liam Tunstall (2), Sam Elliott, Dominic Kew and Joe Braithwaite all scored, and their sixth came from an own goal.

Ruskington Rovers are also in the hat for the next round draw as they received a walk over, with Saxilby unable to field a team.
