Basingstoke and District Saturday League round-up
GEORGE Lagden hit a hat-trick as DJS Telecoms progressed to the second round of the Peter Raynbird Cup with a surprise 5-2 victory over Tadley Calleva A on Saturday.
Lagden got his first early on, taking advantage of a mix-up in the Tadley defence, but the hosts hit back, Rob Kelly and Kye Theodore's penalty putting them 2-1 up at half-time.
Lagden levelled the scores early in the second period and missed a golden chance to complete his treble soon after, hitting the crossbar from the penalty spot.
He made amends by setting up Lee Neal for the DJS third, while Paul Garton made it 4-2 before Lagden got a deserved third goal 10 minutes from time.
Skewers beat Hook Reserves 2-1 to win a preliminary round tie and set up a first round match against Chineham Albion.
Jamie Perryman gave Skewers the lead on 25 minutes and while Dan Mason levelled for Hook just after the hour mark, Lee Corsan got the winner soon after to send Skewers through.
Overton United B were forced to concede their preliminary round tie against Bramley United due to a lack of players, the same problem suffered by Popley, who were forced to hand Old Basing Rangers a walkover in the Basingstoke A Cup.
Welly Old Boys beat Basingstoke and District Saturday League Premier Division rivals Basingstoke Royals 3-0 - but it was far from the one-sided affair the scoreline suggests.
Ben Nicholls converted Tobie Hyde's through-ball to put Welly ahead after five minutes but Nick Willcock and Dean Ridgers both went close as Royals were the better team for long spells.
However, they were unable to pull level and went further behind on 75 minutes, Sam Nicholls finding the net. Ben Nicholls completed the scoring with his second goal of the game soon after.
Paul Coventry made a big impact on his debut for Hook, helping them to a 4-0 victory over Sherborne St John. The winger set up Andy Parker for the first goal and was brought down for a penalty that Davies converted to make it 2-0.
Parker then slotted home from Phil Haig's through-ball for Hook's third, before completing his hat-trick when Coventry's shot was fumbled by the Sherborne 'keeper.
Division One leaders Pure Spartan suffered a rare 3-2 defeat at the hands of Overton United A.
Pure were forced to field outfield player Rob Green between the sticks but it took Overton 50 minutes to beat him, Serge Holland heading home.
Pure Spartan hit back, Dave Ratcliff long throws leading to goals for first Chris Dobbie and then Russell Williams, only for Scott Winterbourne to level and Ross Barber to win the game for Overton from the penalty spot with five minutes left.
Welly Old Boys Reserves were indebted to player-manager Graham Jenkins, who hit a hat-trick in his side's 4-1 win against Herriard Sports.
Jenkins scored on 15 minutes to give his side the lead at half-time, before two more early in the second half, completing his treble from the penalty spot.
Martin Miles pulled one back for Herriard on the hour and they had a golden chance to reduce the deficit further, but Stuart Minton smashed a penalty over the bar. To make matters worse, Welly broke away and Michael Morey made it 4-1.
HAMPSHIRE Irons returned to the summit of Division Two with a 6-0 win over Twenty Ten.
Kieran Dent, Chris Arnold and Jay Greene had them three up at half-time, while James Arnold scored twice after the break and Dent's second completed the scoring late on.
Bounty United are up to fourth following a 4-2 win over Labour Club.
Mitchell Stokes gave them an early lead, which Matt King doubled on 25 minutes. Josh Bundock pulled one back for Labour before the break but goals from Jordon Willis and Paul Barton made it 4-1 before Steve Burton netted a consolation from the penalty spot.
AFC Aldermaston A recorded their third win of the season over bottom side Sherborne St John Reserves, this time emerging 2-1 victors.
The strugglers went ahead through Aiden Blackwell 20 minutes in but goals from Tom Cooper and Kevin Flain had Aldermaston ahead at the break. Sherborne 'keeper Russ Hancock saved Craig Broughton's penalty to keep his side in the game and only a great save from AFC's Gary Bone denied Neil Olson a late leveller.
Late goals from Dave Trevelion and Roman Vanik earned Basingstoke Athletic a 2-0 win over AFC Berg.
