Notley’s Lowestoft and District League round up
THE goals flowed in what was an unbelievable goal-fest at the weekend with a total of 123 being scored in the 19 games played in the league and cup.
In the Suffolk Primary Cup the league has two representatives in the semi finals. DK Consultants were drawn against Waveney Gunners in the quarter finals and from the current top two in the second divison it was DK that won through with an amazing 11-4 scoreline.
They are joined by Mutford & Wrentham who scored the only goal in their tie at Aldeburgh Town.
Moving on to the first division and it got better for Oxford Arms as they recorded their ninth straight win in beating Pakefield Re-United 5-1 and with it they stretched their lead to an impressive nine points as second placed Norton slipped to a 4-2 reverse against Hearts of Oak who are more than likely the only side that could realistically challenge Oxford for the title with the two sides clashing this weekend.
Waveney Reserves recorded an emphatic 8-1 win against Barsham, thanks to a hat-trick from Ray Winney, and one goal apiece for Ian Hunter, Paul Hunter, Lee Faulkner, Dean Hurren and Tom Beals. In form Pot Black won 6-1 against Corton White Horse Seltic, who remain firmly rooted to the bottom of the table.
