Super Irons are really on fire as run goes on
THERE seems to be no holding Hampshire Irons in the Basingstoke and District League Division Two.
They maintained their 100 per cent record record with a fourth straight win, beating Basingstoke Athletic 5-1.
Mo Barry gave them the lead, his 11th goal of the season and two for James Arnold put Athletic on the back foot. Simon Head added another while Arnold went on to net a
hat-trick in the second-half before Marlon Thomas scored a late consolation for the home side.
AFC Berg went into a two-goal lead against Basingstoke Labour Club, after goals from newcomer John Beasant and Dean Bridges.
Labour replied through Steve Burton, but they could not hold the lively Kieran Alleyne, who made it 3-1, and Luke Lawless scored the fourth soon after.
A strong comeback from Labour brought goals from Nick Coombs and Dave Bessant, but Berg ended up 4-3 winners.
AFC Aldermaston A gave DJS Telecoms a tough game but lost 4-3.
A penalty converted by Alex Brown and a far post finish from Allan Morgan saw DJS ahead, but Aldermaston came back to lead 3-2 as Tom Cooper, Paul Mellor and Graham Bone all scored. Then Kevin Flain hit the post with a penalty.
Morgan equalised with 12 minutes to go and, in the 89th minute, goalkeeper Matt Desay brought down Nathan Lawson and was sent off, Brown scoring the winner from the
Overton United B continued their good start with another three points, this week beating Sherborne St John Reserves 6-2.
Darren White started the season with four goals in their 6-2 win against Labour Club and he repeated this feat again on Saturday when his side defeated Sherborne Reserves by the same score.
Richard Bassett did equalise his early strike but Sherborne went 4-1 down before Ben Harman managed another for them.
Ryan Watts and James Bent netted the other two Overton goals. Bounty United, who have missed the three opening matches because of cricket, opened their account with a 3-1 away win against Bengal Brasserie to the delight of new manager Jordon Willis.
Kyle Buckland scored his usual opener for Bengal, but it was downhill after that, Paul Barton equalising with a composed finish.
Bounty held out well and then took the lead with a Lee Barton volley. A poor back pass led to Paul Barton scoring the third.
