HAMPSHIRE Irons remain in contention for the Basingstoke and District Saturday League Division Two title after beating Labour Club 5-1.

Tom Chant and Rob Mead had Irons two up early on and while Matt Waite pulled one back, further goals from James Arnold, Kieran Dent and Arnold's second saw the title challengers home.

Twenty-Ten's title hopes suffered a setback as they were held 5-5 by AFC Berg.

Carl Pearson put Twenty-Ten ahead from the penalty spot, only for Matt Goodman to reply for Berg in the same manner. Leo Pedro had Berg ahead but Joe Hill levelled the game, while Goodman and Hill's second goals of the match meant the sides went into half-time level at 3-3.

Goodman converted another spot-kick to complete his hat-trick, before making it 5-3 with his fourth of the day, but Twenty-Ten hit back late on. Pearson's second penalty reduced the deficit before Hill levelled the game with his hat-trick strike.

Bengal Brasserie beat Bounty United 3-2 last Wednesday and followed that up with a 2-0 win over Basingstoke Athletic on Saturday, before beating Sherborne St John Reserves 3-2 on Monday evening.

Kyle Buckland scored all of their goals in the wins over Bounty and Athletic and he opened the scoring against Sherborne as well. Aiden Blackwell levelled but Jimmy Buckland and Tom Green had Bengal 3-1 up and Sherborne could only pull one back, James Sallows finding the net.

Bounty's slide down the table continued as they lost 4-1 to AFC Aldermaston A. Paul Mellor and Byron Porter had Aldermaston 2-0 up at the break and while Craig Williamson pulled one back, further goals from Kyle Torrie and Mellor's second made sure of the win.
