East­cote fight un­til end

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

MBBO RE­GIONAL ONE New­bury & Thatcham 1 East­cote 4 EAST­COTE look set to take their fight for the MBBO Re­gional One ti­tle to the wire af­ter dis­patch­ing New­bury & Thatcham this week.

The Boars are level on points with lead­ers Ash­ford ahead of the penul­ti­mate game of the cam­paign this week­end – but cru­cially they have a far worse goal dif­fer­ence.

David Cooper, Kevin Haigh, Richard Rip­per and Joe Snell all scored to sink New­bury & Thatcham but they re­main 20 goals shy of the ta­ble top­pers, leav­ing them pray­ing for an Ash­ford slip-up in the next two fix­tures.

Mean­while, the sec­onds went down 2-1 to third-placed Maiden­head with a Kern Sorzano goal. They face the firsts on Satur­day in that crunch game.

East­cote Ladies lost 3-0 to Buckingham, but Cerys Ed­wards fired the sec­onds to a 1-0 win over PHC Chiswick.
