SPARTAN LEAGUE Leverstock Green.................3 LONDON TIGERS.........2
The exciting end-to-end action on Saturday had the lot bar a Tigers win.
The Maida Vale side were up against it when keeper Siki Kambala was sent off towards the end for handball outside the box despite the vehement protests of his team-mates.
But deputy Adriano Gomes Marques whipped off his midfielder's shirt and donned the keeper's gloves with some aplomb as Tigers had already used their three subs.
Although Tigers went ahead courtesy of a bundled goal from Henry Emenike (pictured), Leverstock made hard work of a win they should have wrapped up long before Marques' cameo between the sticks. They scored twice in seven minutes before
the half-hour mark and then had two goals chalked off for fouls as well as blazing a penalty high and wide.
Adil Salih had delivered the ball for Tigers first goal, and repeated the feat just before half-time when Franclin Manuel slid home to level the game.
However, Mike Wardle's killer third for the Herts side in the second 45 found no way back for the orange shirts. Tigers could have gone second but slip to sixth in a tight top half of the table.
MIDDX JUNIOR CUP - ROUND THREE KENSINGTON DRAGONS....2 Kodak Res (Harrow)....1
DRAGONS battered away at Kodak's door on Saturday until it finally caved in after the Harrow side had done a partial repair job in the first half.
Kensington were gutted to go in 1-1 at the break having stormed into an early lead and then bombarding the Kodak goal without further breakthrough.
Worse still, the visitors levelled with their only meaningful attack of the first 45 minutes before Dragons lost defender Warren Butcher to a hamstring injury.
Luke O'Donoghue had already netted after just two minutes, and Lamelle Williams brushed the top of the crossbar shortly after.
But it looked as if lady luck had deserted the west Londoners, despite a fine showing form new boy Alberto Cartasegna on the right wing. That is until Williams would not be denied and hit the killer blow with no time left for Kodak to mount a second comeback.
MIDDLESEX LEAGUE SENIOR RES DIV CB Hounslow Res........1 KENSINGTON DRAGONS RES.......1
TONY MADDEN struck the only goal for Dragons - but the remarkable statistic is his side held a strong CB side to a draw despite being able to field only eight men for the entire game.
HARROW YOUTH LEAGUE - U15 Hayes Youth.......0 KENSINGTON DRAGONS.........4
DRAGONS wasted no time in wrapping up the points by racing into a 3-0 lead by half-time on Sunday.
They coasted the second 45 minutes, but could afford to after strikes from Edward Adeley (2), Forest Clancy and Eva Batasoul.
JIM ROGERS CUP - QUARTER FINAL Wilberforce Wanderers.......0 SLOANE FC......6
A MASSIVE upheaval in the team from Chelsea brought one of Sloane's biggest wins in the club's history on Saturday.
Two defeats on the trot were enough to convince Sloane to bring in new faces. And the all-change worked wonders as they ran riot against a side who had given them trouble in the league earlier in the season. Keeper Albert McCausland brought off one fabulous save from a free-kick, and then had the luxury of watching the mayhem at the other end.
Samir Aalit hit two in the first half, before team-mates Ramin Jarvand, Reece Crisp, Nadeem Shariff and a surprise hit from defensive midfielder James Hall rounded off the rout.
HOCKEY: MBBO DIVISION ONE British Airways.....3 PHC CHISWICK.....1
A NEAR five-week lay-off for PHC Chiswick did the side from Linford Christie no good at all despite going in front on Saturday.
The side known as Polly got their noses, or rather their beaks, ahead thanks to John Cowie's strike. But the airport side took off in the second half with a brace from Jaspal Dhamarait and a killer from Mohinder Dhanjal. The defeat leaves Polly ninth out of 12 teams.
