Lakenheath 3

Fulbourn Institute 1

Three first-half goals proved to be more than enough for Lakenheath to inflict a first defeat of the season on Fulbourn Institute.

Lakenheath started fast and had several opportunities to score prior to Ben Amery eventually putting the hosts in front with a fine left-foot drive from 20 yards.

Matt Hayden doubled the hosts’ lead before Darcy Place headed in from close range to give Heath a 3-0 half-time advantage.

Lakenheath wasted several more excellent opportunities to increase their lead with Tony Wright and Josh Green forcing saves from the keeper and the usually-reliable 
Hayden completely fluffing his lines with the goal gaping.

Fulbourn pulled a goal back late on and rallied until the final whistle, hitting the bar and forcing Heath goalkeeper Dan Corston into two smart saves.

“We could have won by 
a far greater margin, but full credit to them, they showed why they were previously unbeaten and caused us a few hairy moments near the end at 3-1 and I was delighted when the ref finally blew up for full-time,” said manager Kevin Sobiechowski. “The win was the important as it keeps us hanging on to 
the coat tails of the top three.”

Fordham 3

Isleham 0

Fordham came out on top in their derby match against Isleham with a solid performance and three well-taken goals.

The hosts took the lead on the half-hour-mark when Reece Theobald and Jonny Mitchell set up Jamie Crawley to score with a fine curling shot.

Ten minutes later it was 2-0 after brothers Jordan and Alex Theobald combined beautifully, before the latter placed the ball home.

Alex Theobald wrapped things up for his side in the second half with a fine individual goal, although Fordham did have another effort ruled out for 
offside.
