Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

EAST­COTE picked up some derby brag­ging rights and re­mained two points clear at the top of MBBO Re­gional Di­vi­sion One in the process.

The Boars edged out Old Merchant Tay­lors’ 3-2 to stay ahead of Ash­ford at the sum­mit.

It looked easy for the home side when James Berger opened the scor­ing and a Kevin Haigh goal saw them open a com­fort­able half-time lead. Haigh, re­turn­ing from a four-week in­jury break, made it 3-0 and with 20 min­utes re­main­ing and they sur­vived a late OMT fight­back to grab the points.

The club’s sec­ond string had a nar­row 2-1 loss at Wy­combe, Kern Sorzano net­ting a con­so­la­tion, while the over 60s pro­gressed in the EH Cup, beat­ing St Al­bans 3-1.

East­cote Ladies suf­fered their first loss in four games as they went down 3-0 at Hen­ley.
