ONLY two games survived the freezing conditions on Saturday and these were played at Brighton Hill and Preston Candover.

Winklebury Wizards lost to visiting AFC Aldermaston Reserves 5-2 in their Basingstoke and District League Division One clash Wizards' manager Harry Goodyear felt the final score did not reflect on the amount of time his team had the ball and conceding three goals in a bad ten minute spell sunk them.

In fact Wizards who took the lead after 12 minutes when Vincent Mundane closed down goalkeeper Martin Readings attempted clearance.

A long throw under the bar from Jamie Porter was headed in by Trunwell Richardson to level in the 35th minutes and five minutes later a corner by Matt Coddington was not cleared well and Chris Allen put Aldermaston in front. Although Matt King hit a good chance over the bar for Wizards, a minute before the break, Allen scored again, this time via a Ricky Waknell cross to make it 3-1.

Just before half time Wizards had a great chance to reduce the arrears when awarded a penalty after Dean Scott was fouled by Allen, but the spot kick, taken by Scott hit the post.

Five minutes into the second half a Chris Allen corner kick ended up in the net following a deflection off a defender to put the game out of Wizards reach.

Allen then lobbed the fifth from a through ball by Luke Jones. In the 80th minute Wizards' netted a consolation as Scott scored after being put through by Aaron Barton.

At Preston Candover, Twentyten Reserves beat visiting Somesay 3-1 and the three points has taken them up to level points with Division Two leaders Sherborne Saints, although Saints have two matches in hand. Twentyen's Dan Hancock gave them the lead after 25 minutes, after heading home a cross from Lucas Pickett. Joe Hill, who has scored 14 goals for the first team, played in goal and made a fine save with his feet to preserve their slender interval lead. Somesay who are pushing for promotion in third place, equalised on the hour through Joe Hodge.

However, it was Twentyten with the better of play and chances were missed by Hancock, Ryan Lupton and Joe Osborne before they regained the lead on 75 minutes. Charlie Hill was the scorer after he bundled in a corner by Pickett and they finally sealed the points when Hancock scored his second after good play by Lupton.

The Saturday League now takes a two week Christmas break and restarts on Saturday January 5.
