Emphatic defeat for Silhill as weather takes toll

Premier Division

Boldmere Sports & Social 4 - 1 Silhill

SILHILL were well beaten by home side Boldmere, who mastered the gale force winds far better than the more wayward blue boys.

Andy Masters scored a hat-trick as the home side took a 4 - 0 lead.

Silhill did manage a consolation goal however late on when Neil Kitching was brought down in the area and Darren Lea converted the penalty.

Cresconians 0 - 3 Shirley Athletic

On a wet and windy afternoon, Shirley took early control of the game but could not turn their possession into goals, with too many crosses and passes wide of the mark.

Cresconians started the second half the brighter of the two sides, pinning Shirley into their own half. But on 67 minutes, Shirley were awarded a corner and Kerry Curtis went up and put the ball in the back of the net for the breakthrough goal.

Five minutes later, another brilliant move out on the Shirley right flank saw Ben Ince power forward towards the edge of the Cresconians area and unleash a powerful low drive that beat the Cresconians keeper at his near post.

The game was wrapped up on 84 minutes when Mike Mountford scored another spectacular effort from 25 yards out.

Division Two

Old Nortonians 1 - 1 Silhill 2nds

Silhill Reserves achieved their first point of the Season with a fine draw away at Old Nortonians.

Sils stormed into the lead midway through the first half when Dane Morgan was supplied by Oliver Parry’s threaded pass and shot in clinically at the far post.

An end-to-end game should have seen more goals, but it took until the 76th minute, when Old Nortonians were awarded a dubious penalty, for the equaliser to come.

Knowle FC 2 - 3 Brocton FC

Having taken three points away at Castle Vale on Wednesday, the Robins travelled to a blustery Brocton full of confidence.

Despite a good start by Knowle, Fife opened the scoring for Brocton, but the Robins soon scored an equaliser thanks to Mykey Pryce.

Brocton scored early in the second half, only to see their lead lost again, this time King getting the equaliser.

The Robins were only on level terms for four minutes though, as hesitant defending allowed Scott to fire home from a tight angle.
