Whirlwind Wimpson blow Eastleigh away

Southampton Sunday League round-up

WIMPSON left AFC Eastleigh wobbling and weak-kneed after stuffing 23 goals past them to bolster their Division Eight title claims.

Shane Reid’s hat-trick kept Holly Hill Reserves in with a sniff with a 3-1 win over pointless Halfway Inn Reserves (Tommy Mwason).

AFC Southside were cruising with a 4-0 half-time lead over M&T, who woke up in the second half to make a game of it. Lloyd Marande, Kian O’Rourke, Liam Sinckler, James Elmore and Kieron Roper notched for Southside, with Chris Walcroft (2) and Dean Kneller providing a 3-5 scoreline.

Most of the fun and frolics happened in the second half of Montfort’s 6-2 win over Compton.

Montfort led 1-0 at half-time with little hint of the second-half mayhem to come. Cameron Early (2), Will Nichols (2), Tom Nicholls and Olly Lovell were on target for Montfort, with Ben Cook and Caius McEwan replying for Compton.

Ashley Nunn and a Scott Roberts spot-kick earned Newton a draw which did Taurus’s (Thomas Farrell, Connor Smith) title hopes no favours at all.

In the sole Division Two fixture, Millrook Sunday (Matty West) and AFC Riverside (Taylor O’Hare) shared the points in a 1-1 draw.

Woolston T&L’s grip at the top of Division Three looks solid after their 4-1 win over AFC Redbridge, woth Georger Fairless, Stanley Triggs-Rogers, Hamish Gattrell and an og sealing the points (Alex Azadegan for Redbridge).

But Wyvern Youth Reds are lurking with intent, after their 5-2 win over AFC Hythe left them six points behind Woolston with four games in hand.  Owen Hurst (2, one pen), Dom Pilch, Lewis Nagle and Tayler Chapman (pen) were on the money for Wyvern, with ~James Kilford and Lewis Fisher replying for Hythe.

You can only feel sorry for Cottage Inn’s Joe Wooders who fired a hat-trick but still finished on the losing side! Fin Ireland also notched for Cottage but Holly Hill Hawks rattled in eight to clam the points. Josh Holton (3), Connor Reed (2), Elliott Cox, Louis Baldacchino, and Daniel Hamilton-Lee were on target for Hawks.

James Fiest dined out with a hat-trick, Oliver Burroughs and Ollie Rushant sank doubles, and Sam Piper completed the rout.
