HMH player-manager Neil Kochane was his side’s hero in Division One, while Lions extended their lead in Division Two, writes Jeremy Silverstone…
The one game in the divisions saw HMH player-manager Neil Kochane his side’s hero as he nabbed a brace in their 2-1 win over Brady A, to record their first win of the season.
Greg Morris marked his return to Masters football with a hat-trick in Glenthorne’s 7-1 win over Brady B. Glenthorne’s other scorers were Spencer Fenton, David Simberg, Darren Leventhal and Richard Lester, whilst Brian Deal netted Brady’s consolation.
Meanwhile, Lions extended their lead at the top of the table as Darren Coon and Simon Black gave them a two-goal first-half advantage over Zigzag Marshside, and it would have been three were it not for Philip Small’s excellent penalty save. But with the wind at their backs, Marshside cut the deficit after the break through a Sami Nourazi shot, but Lions hung on to win 2-1.
However, Temple Fortune were unable to hang onto their lead as they eventually drew 3-3 with St John’s Wood Tigers. Having led 2-0 and 3-2 thanks to John Seigal’s double and Yali Mamouri’s strike, they were eventually pegged back by goals from Tigers’ Adam Soller, John Perloff and Johnny Mansoor, and almost lost it in the final minute as Tigers had a goal disallowed for offside.
