Bath Chronicle - - SPORT -

Olympic Vic­to­ria kept up the pres­sure at the top of Bath & Dis­trict Di­vi­sion 3 with a com­fort­able 7-1 suc­cess over bot­tom mark­ers Two Weir Town. Paul Gray opened the scor­ing, cap­i­tal­is­ing on a de­fen­sive er­ror, and Vics went into the break 3-0 up with Har­ri­son Drew on tar­get twice with tidy fin­ishes. Mar­tin Carlyon pulled one back on 54 min­utes for Town, catch­ing Phil Hawkins out af­ter the goal­keeper mishit a clear­ance, but they were over­pow­ered af­ter­wards with Gray and Drew go­ing on to com­plete hat-tricks ei­ther side of Shaun Lewis’ far post tap-in. The re­sult moved them to se­cond be­hind Bear Flat. Liam Davies (2) and Josh Span­swick gave the Bears a 3-0 lead at the in­ter­val against Far­ring­ton Al­bion, but the vis­i­tors made them sweat af­ter Daniel Tur­vey and James Swift net­ted, but they couldn’t find a lev­eller. Di­vi­sion 2’s only fix­ture saw Claver­ton Park get the bet­ter of Ro­man Bath­elona in an 11-goal thriller. Liam Pal­lett fired in a hat­trick in a 7-4 win for Park to move them up three places. The Stan Mil­som Cup oc­cu­pied oth­ers, with FC Brew­house pulling off the shock of the day. The Di­vi­sion 3 out­fit beat Di­vi­sion 2’s Rad­stock Al­bion 4-2, a Car­los Diaz brace along­side Neil Mon­aghan and Alex Press goals proved the dif­fer­ence. Con­nor Hall and Char­lie Myrie re­sponded for Al­bion. Brew­house are the only Di­vi­sion 3 side left in the com­pe­ti­tion as Wel­ton Rangers suf­fered a 5-0 loss at home to FC Trin­ity. Tom Lake­man and Mure­san Ioan scored twice with Nick Skey plun­der­ing an­other as they avoided a po­ten­tial up­set at White City, this hav­ing played most of the match with nine men owing to sev­eral drop-outs. Odd Down ex­ited a cup for the se­cond week run­ning. They fell apart in the first half hour at Bath United, with Da­mon King (2) and Dan Rab­bitts put­ting the hosts 3-0 up. Debu­tant Sam Gre­gory added a fourth on 71 min­utes, be­fore Kieran Hul­bert claimed a con­so­la­tion soon af­ter. Her­itage de­feated Pig & Fid­dle in an all-di­vi­sion 1 clash, hav­ing also met in the league seven days ago. Dou­bles for Mark Tay­lor, John Den­nis and Jac Humphreys clinched a 6-2 win to earn last year’s fi­nal­ists a quar­ter-fi­nal spot.
