Sea Pioneer SCEFL First Division
Only 3 games survived but they gave us 15 goals and a new leader as Kennington raced to the top after an eventful game in South East London. The ‘Ton’ hit 6 goals from 6 different scorers to overcome a gritty Bridon Ropes side and earn the 3 points that keeps their promotion drive firmly on course. Ryan Philpott, James Haylock-Ashdown, Charlie Owen, Gary Clarke, Gary Lockyer and George Latham all netted for Kennington before they withstood a late Ropes rally to claim the win.
SC Thamesmead saw their own promotion hopes damaged after losing late-on at home to Lewisham Borough. It had looked like the ‘Acre’ had earned a point when Dieko Falade scored a 90th minute equaliser yet there was just enough time for Ijah Currie-Wilson to find the winner which has moved his side up a place to 11th.
Forest Hill Park are one position higher after also earning their points with a late winner. Lydd Town were heading for a share of the spoils until Joji Phillips popped up in the 85th minute to give his side a 2-1 victory.
