Under blue skies on a cold autumn day in Peterborough, our two Stamford 50+ squads had an excellent day with both enjoying victory in their two games.
Stamford Reds 15 Netherton 0
An improving Netherton team who notched their first win in the league earlier in the day, found the Reds unforgiving as they struggled to keep track of the movement and swift passing and soon found themselves chasing the game after just a minute of play.
Stamford never looked back after that and notched 8 goals in the first half and another 7 in the second for a straight forward win.
Hats off to Netherton though who kept battling to the final whistle.
Stamford Whites 7 Moulton 2
The Whites came fast out of the blocks in this one and rushed into a very early three goal lead as the Moulton lads took a time to adjust to the game.
The Nortnats team rallied a little in the second half but Whites eased through with a few more goals too.
Stamford Reds 8 Moulton 2
Having watched the Whites ease to victory against Moulton, and having had a fairly easy win against Netherton, the Reds were very complacent at the start of this match and Moulton made them pay taking an early lead.
The Reds were struggling to repeat the rythmn of the first game and despite grabbing an equaliser it was Moulton that broke away and took a 2-1 lead.
This seemed to galvanise the Reds and they finally started to put some passes together and once again equalised. Moulton were giving as good as they got though and keeper Lovesey was called upon to make a couple of saves to keep them at bay.
Reds went 3-2 ahead with a well taken goal from Sawers and this was swiftly followed by a fourth.
The lads from Northants seemed to lose a little heart after that and in the second half the Reds were more in control and eased to a comfortable victory in the end.
Stamford Whites 3 Harborough 1
The Whites knew from previous competitions that they were up a aginst a competent Harborough team and would have to dig in. This they did though and ran out comfortable 3-1 winners.
A good day for both squads and both are now sat at 9 points from four games just behind the leaders.
