WILTSHIRE LEAGUE: Five-star Sports edge fiery clash
6:00am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Latest News
SUPERMARINE Sports Club went top of the Wiltshire League Premier Division with a 5-1 win over Blyskawica in an ill-tempered match at Hooper’s Field.
Two early goals gave Supermarine a commanding lead but Blyskawica controversially got a goal back from the penalty spot through Gianni Costbile, after referee William Hawkins adjudged a Supermarine defender to have picked up the ball before it had gone out of play.
With momentum with the hosts, the hosts spurned a great chance to equalise. Player-manager Phil Trueman played Tom Kopinski in on goal but the striker failed to hit the target.
Blyskawica were made to regret that miss as Supermarine themselves were awarded a dubious penalty to make it 3-1, before adding two late goals to add gloss to their victory.
Southbrook moved into third after coming from behind against Marlborough Town. Marlborough took the lead at the half hour mark, before Devan Bryan equalised just 10 minutes later.
Bryan, who has been in impressive form of late, doubled his tally around 10 minutes into the second half.
Southbrook substitute Tom McCulloch also grabbed a superb brace with two solo goals as Southbrook moved to within two points of league leaders Supermarine Sports Club.
Wroughton fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Vale of Pewsey in a midtable clash at the Weir Field.
Ludgershall continued their impressive form with an entertaining 3-2 victory against visitors Chippenham Youth.
The hosts were dominant in an action-packed first half and Steve Witt, Nathan Strong and Joe Shearer gave them a commanding 3-1 half-time lead.
Ludgershall were almost made to pay for missing a penalty, as Chippenham pulled one back after the interval to set up a tense finale.
But the visitors were unable to make the late pressure pay and Ludgershall managed to hold on for three well-deserved points.
In Divison One, Melksham reserves retained top spot on goal difference, thrashing Wroughton reserves 9-1. Saturday’s visitors have now conceded 21 goals in their last four games.
A hat-trick from the in-form Lewis Petrie and goals from 16-year-old Ross Algar, Jake Kitchin and Lewis Taylor left Bassett hot on Melksham’s heels.
Points were shared for the first time in the 2013/2014 Division One season, as Intel and Sarum Youth Seniors played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.
Marlborough reserves were comfortably beaten at home for the second time in as many games, as they fell 4-1 at home to Malmesbury reserves.
Purton reserves beat Wilts Calne Town 4-2 after extra time to progress to the quarter-final of the Senior KO Cup.
Calne took the lead early on through Tom Slater, before Dave Young and Dan Cole scored to produce an impressive turnaround at Red House.
Karl Sharratt drew Calne level just before half-time and the equaliser was to be the last goal of normal time.
With Calne legs tiring, Adam Devine scored twice to send Purton into the last eight and secure their second win in two games.
