Olympian League review
President’s Cup Group A
Only two weeks after winning last season's delayed competition, Tudor Arms started their defence with an impressive 4-1 away win over Cassiobury Rangers in the first group game.
Tudor ran the game from start to finish, taking an early lead when Jack Plunkett headed home and it was soon followed by a 25-yard shot from Gary Warn.
Luke Pocherty scored Tudor's third after the break before Tom Norris pulled a goal back, but it was the victors who completed the scoring thanks to a Ben Collins penalty.
In the other game in the group, Reed Rangers edged out Kings Langley 2-1.
All of the goals came in the second half, with Adam Cressweller heading home after 50 minutes.
George Hobbs doubled the Reed lead on 75 minutes before substitute Nial Haughton netted Langley's sole reply five minutes from time.
President’s Cup Group B
Woodside edged out Colne Valley by the odd goal in three.
Tom Seamons put Valley ahead after just five minutes but the lead lasted only two minutes when Woodside levelled thanks to an own goal.
Valley keeper Dave Durbridge saved Drew Snailham’s penalty later in the first half before Calum Hailey hit the winner 20 minutes from time.
The game between Headstone Athletic and Old Danes Athletic was postponed because the two sides could not agree on a match referee after the appointed official failed to turn up.
Amici have opened up a three-point lead at the top of the table after a 5-0 home win over Watford Labour Club.
All the goals came in the first half, with Dave Morrish and Joe Mitchell both scoring braces and James Brent netting the other.
Aquis are now in third place following a 2-0 win over Inter, both goals scored in the first half by Julian Burge and Adrian Arrighi.
WD Athletic and Headstone Lions shared the points in a 1-1 draw - Darren Hartland scoring for Lions.
The game between Pavillion Rangers and FC Aps was not played because Aps have been suspended by the Herts FA.
There were goals galore in this division, with 30 scored in only four games.
The highest scoring game came as Brookside beat Cassiobury Revolution 8-3.
The tone was set when Cassiobury went ahead in the first minute through Anthony Highett.
Brookside soon hit back as Garry Hanna equalised before a quick-fire hat-trick from Barrie Horn. But the scoring wasn’t finished in the first half as Chris Massey pulled a goal back just before the break.
There was no let up after the break as Horn struck twice more and Johnny Armitt and Jordan Cocomazzi also found the net for the winners.
The third Revolution goal was a second of the game for Massey.
Oxhey Park and Ebury Olympians went into their game with an identical record but it was the home side that ran out 8-1 victors.
After an even first 16 minutes, Oxhey Park took the lead and went on to score a further three three in the following 11 minutes to lead 4-0 at the break.
Four more followed in the second half before Dev Patel scored a last-minute penalty for Ebury.
Shane Flynn, with a hat-trick, two-goal Robert Blesserhasett and singles from Charlie May, Owen O’Reilly and Sam Blesshasett registered for Oxhey.
Colne Valley Reserves beat Bovingdon 3-2.
Chris Kimonos put Bovingdon ahead before Perry Rogers levelled soon after.
Rogers scored a second after the interval and this was soon followed by a penalty from Reza Hotee. Bovingdon pulled a goal back thanks to a second from Kimonos.
Roundbush overcame Bushey Olympians 4-1.
Blaise Shevrington struck a hat-trick, with Joe Girvan the other scorer for Bush.
