Boston Saturday Football League

Premier Division

Wyberton Reserves had a comfortable 5-0 victory against Billinghay Athletic with Tyrone Chase grabbing two goals.

Adam Vinters, Shane Brackenbury and Liam Shinn completed the scoring.

An Ian Jacquest hat-trick for Pointon in their home match against Swineshead accounted for nothing as they fell to a 6-3 defeat.

Division Two

In a midweek local derby game at Coningsby Reserves, Billinghay Reserves went home empty-handed after going down 2-0. The goals came from Danny Cottingham and James Todd.

Billinghay Reserves just edged out Fishtoft Reserves. In the first half, Fishtoft got on the front foot and were rewarded with goal half way through the half thanks to a neat bit of play that put Lewis Cartwright through on goal and the striker finished in style.

Billinghay were soon back on level terms after a long ball over the top sent them through on goal and as the onrushing keeper came out, the Billinghay player chipped it over him and into the net.

As the game was coming to an end another ball over the top allowed the Billinghay forward in on goal, as the Fishtoft defender came across the ball was cleared only for the referee to award a dubious penalty for handball. Billinghay scored and put themselves in front with what proved to be the winning goal.

The Lincoln League Village Trophy Final between Railway Inn and Ruskington Rovers took place last Thursday and it required a penalty shoot-out to produce a winner.

Ruskington scored very early on and enjoyed most of the possession but a momentary lapse led to Railway Inn equalising just before full time.

The match remained deadlocked at 1-1 after extra time and Railway Inn won 3-1 on penalties.
