LEWIS Trevor and Tim Bell both struck twice for Benington in their impressive 5-1 away win at Skegness Town Reserves.

Gavin Bell grabbed the other Benington goal as the newcomers to the top flight continue to force the pace with Wyberton.

Skegness replied through Graeme Theodore.

IT WAS certainly an unlucky day for Freiston when they played hosts to Wyberton.

No less than 13 goals found the Freiston net as Wyberton enjoyed a session of shooting practice.

Ben Jacques and Dan White both claimed hat-tricks while Dan Maddison and Reece Young notched two apiece.

The other goals came from Chris Ruck and Elliott Pogson.

Freiston’s consolation came from Jack Titchmarsh.

The hosts’ cause wasn’t helped by the sending off of Dean Seiner

THERE was much relief in the Kirton Town camp after their first win of the season, when Fishtoft provided the opposition at Graves Park.

Josh Smith, Nathan Rivett and Steve Lee hit the crucial goals in a 3-1 home win.

Fishtoft were under strength and it showed as Kirton completely dominated the first half and, had it not been for visiting keeper Ben Shaw being in inspired form, the score-line could have been a lot greater.

Shaw made at least six excellent first half saves to keep his side in the game.

Adam Vinters scored the Fishtoft goal.

SPILSBY Town’s Jordan Smith put in a five-star goalscoring performance against Old Doningtonians at Ancaster Avenue.

Hit-man Smith struck all of his side’s goals in a 5-1 home win and this was after Town found themselves trailing 1-0 at the half time interval.

BILLINGHAY Athletic appeared to be heading for a deserved point in their home encounter against Swineshead – until the visitors snatched victory with a last-gasp winner. Matt Newell had scored the Billinghay goal with a fierce drive, but Swineshead replied through Shaun Boothby and Jeff Hickey.

OLD Leake earned a point at Pointon with goals from Adam Tempest and Chris Baker.

Ian Jacques and Sam Husband hit the Pointon goals.

Taylors Peugeot Division One

LEON Marsh and Nicky Syndercombe both struck twice for Wyberton Reserves in their 5-3 home win against Billinghay Athletic Reserves.

Adam Crich grabbed the other Wyberton goal.

Billinghay replied through Simon Burrows, Jac Wright and an own goal

CRAIG Newstead hit two goals for Mareham United in their 4-0 home win against Spalding Harriers.

Tom Sewell and Micky Johnson completed the scoring for the home side.

FREISTON Reserves made up for their first team’s bad day at the office with a storming 9-2 away win at Skegness United Reserves.

Reece Coddington (three), Troy Ayton (two), Michael Burman, Lucky Singh, Daniel Darwood and Jamie Elston did the damage for Freiston while Skegness replied through Lee Orrey and Jordan Wood.

Taylors Ford Division Two

RECENT signing Ben Pell rediscovered some of his old goal-poaching magic with two of the Old Doningtonians Reserves’ goals in their 5-1 home win against Coningsby Reserves.

Gary Lee, Ben Wood and Sean Scott hit the other match-winning goals for the Dons.

KIRTON Town Reserves heaped more misery on Park United when they came away with a 6-1 victory under the belts.

Declan Sands struck a hat-trick for Town while Alex Cammack hit two.

The visitors’ other goal came from Ashley Hughes, while Park replied through Aaron John.

JAMES Copsey and Kirk Llewellyn scored the goals to give Mareham United Reserves a valuable 2-1 away win at Fishtoft Reserves.

Liam Nimmo replied for the 
home side.

Taylors Vauxhall Division Three

FC Kirton remain on top following their 3-0 away win at Friskney - although the home side will be disappointed in the first two goals which presented the Kirton side with a comfortable two-goal cushion.

Friskney battled well during the first half and matched their opponents all the way, but a mistake saw a defender lose possession near the halfway line and Kirton broke away to score the opener.

A misplaced back-pass in the second half gave the visitors a 2-0 lead and the visitors took control from thereon adding another to finish comfortable 3-0 winners. The table-toppers’ matchwinners were Ben Newton (two) and Mitch Bradley

AFTER Holbeach Bank Reserves pulled out of their home fixture with Swineshead Reserves due to a lack of players, the Swineshead camp quickly re-arranged a replacement fixture with Sutterton Reserves.

It proved to be pretty much one-way traffic as Swineshead stormed to an 8-0 home win.

Max Elsam, Giles Favell (two), Aaron Bates (three), Chris Hollyoake and Dan Thompson found the net.

FC Hammers were helped by two own goals in their home match against Spilsby Town Reserves.

Although Kristian Taylor scored as well it wasn’t enought to gain any reward as Town returned home with a 5-3 away win.

Spilsby scorers, at the right end, were Mark Ingram, Steve Marvell, Jake Smith, Jack Bache and Toby Smith.

Target Newspapers Challenge Cup

THE day’s highest scorers were Nelson FC, who just cannot stop scoring.

Against Spalding Town, Liam Shinn continued his rich vein of goalscoring with another hat-trick in his side’s 6-3 home win.

Ben Swift, Daniel Marshall and Daniel Bourne were also on target for the home side.

WAINFLEET United’s Adam Mitchell is another striker who has a habit of hitting hattricks - and he was again instrumental in his side’s victory when they entertained Westside Rangers.

Mitchell’s second hat-trick of the season saw his side end their tie with their opponents locked together at 3-3 after extra time .

The home side proved more clinical from the penalty spot and they edged through 5-4 in the shoot-out.

Westside played their part in an excellent encounter with goals from Tom Bates, Neal Wheatley and Matt Bates.

A SOLITARY Danny Woods goal secured victory for Sutterton when they narrowly defeated Woodhall Spa United at their Park Avenue ground.

FOSDYKE and Queens Rangers were involved in a strange cup tie which saw the visitors almost stage an unlikely comeback.

Fosdyke were seemingly out of sight after just 16 minutes following a tremendous four-goal blitz - but Rangers staged a great fightback to go so close to forcing extra time.

James Munn and Matt Howden gave Fosdyke a two-goal lead before Howden was fouled in the box and Tommy Watson tucked away the penalty.

A mazy run from full back Chris Harker ended with his effort being turned in by an unlucky defender to make the score 4-0.

Rangers came out after the break in a determined mood and with nothing to lose they threw caution to the wind.

Their brave efforts almost forced extra time with three second half goals, but Fosdyke held out to squeeze through to the next round.

CONINGSBY booked their place in the next round by the slenderest of margins.

Danny McNamara’s goal proved to be enough to see of the challenge of Holbeach Bank.

TWO ties didn’t take place in the first round - meaning that Ruskington Rovers and Wrangle are expected to earn easy passages through.

The lingering problems which have beset Boston United Community caught up with them when a decision was made to withdraw the club from the Boston Saturday League.

Tulip FC and pulled out of their journey to Ruskington Rovers.
