Ruskington Rovers had a welcome mid-week victory in the Boston Saturday League Premier Division when they thumped Woodhall Spa United 5-0.

Dan Summerfield hit a hat-trick for Rovers, with the other goals coming from Ashley Farmer and Dominic Armstrong.

The Premier Division title race still remains wide open following closely fought home wins for the two leaders, Spilsby Town and Swineshead Institute.

Spilsby’s 2-1 home win against Skegness Town Reserves last Saturday kept them in the hunt following goals from Jordan Turner and Jack Solomon. The visitors’ reply came from John Jeffery.

Swineshead’s single-goal victory was enough to earn them three valuable points when Pointon were the visitors. Rob Masters’ crucial winning goal helped settle the nerves.

A Jonathan Fenton strike and an own goal gave Billinghay Athletic a 2-0 home victory against Mareham United.

In Division One, Heckington Millers got back to winning ways when they entertained Friskney. The Millers started the game brightly, with Kane Brown causing the Friskney defence all sorts of problems.

Heckington took a first half lead through Tom Buckberry’s smart finish and, although they created further chances after the break, they didn’t seal victory until the final minute when, following some brilliant footwork on the edge of the area, Dom Kew fired into the bottom corner to make the final score 2-0.
