OVERTON United threw a wrench into Basingstoke Hammers' perfect record, beating them 3-1 in a midweek game, writes Tony Spencer

The Hammers, currently reigning champions of Division 1, couldn't hold back the onslaught led by Tyrell Reid and amplified by Bradley Archer.

Kieran Rodgers answered with a token goal to save some face.

Despite the upset, the Hammers regained their stride, winning the North Hants Sunday Senior Cup Final 4-1 against South Wonston Swifts on May 2, at Longmeadow.

The victory was achieved through the goals scored by Alfie Jones, Cole Oates, Kieran Rodgers, and Tyler Weiss.

In Division 2, AFC Aldermaston were overwhelmed by Ambient, with a closing score of 0-5. Goals were delivered by Clayton Deakin, Alex McKenna, Mark West, and Joe Marsh.

Ambient continued their winning streak by toppling Farnham Spitfires 7-2, with a commendable performance from Cobi Judd who netted two goals, and others from Kieron Alleyne, Scott Berry, Alex McKenna, Mark West and substitute Joe Marsh.

However, the pressure is on for Ambient, as only AFC Berg can rob them of their lead.

AFC Berg have made their intentions clear, recently eliminating third place Sherborne St John from contention with an impressive 6-0 win.

Maurice Black, John Black, Tom Black and Luis Skone, all contributed to the high scoring.

On the other hand, Hampshire Royals took down Brookvale United with a 5-3 win. Ashley Elward tried to retaliate with a pair of goals for Brookvale, but it wasn't enough.

Brookvale did gain some redemption when Elward scored a hat-trick, beating Eastrop Eagles 5-0, with contributions from Jamie Grove 27 and substitute Taylor Yates.

Meanwhile, Overton United Reserves were left shocked when bottom-table AFC Aldermaston outplayed them. Andrew Juett’s five goals took the match away from Overton, ending 4-6.

In Division 3, undefeated league leaders Winklebury were brought down 3-1 by Basingstoke Hammers Reserves. Bradley Charles managed to net a goal for Winklebury.

Bottom club Riverdene Rovers endured a humiliating defeat by Hook, the final tally reading 0-11.

Matthew Bell, Jack McKee, and substitute Patrick Callaghan scored twice, supplemented by goals from Nathan Bonser, Zac Felbabel, Luke Lloyd and subs Adam Arthurs and Harry Hawthorne-Lloyd.

Basingstoke Boars were spared the pitch and handed points against Soldiers Return.
