Have your say

Mid Lincs League


Great Ponton 4

Young Dons 3

The game started well for both teams but it was Young Dons who took a fortuitous lead after a mix-up in the Ponton defence resulted in an own goal.

Ponton attacked from the restart and an Ian Goode shot levelled the scores.

Dons scored before the break with an excellent strike. Straight from the restart, Will Barron struck to once again level for Ponton.

Excellent team play by Ponton ended with a David Olalere goal to give the home side the lead. But this was cancelled out by another from the visitors.

Excellent pressure earned Ponton a corner. Olalere swung the ball in and Charlie Copley rose well to head home and give his team victory.

Ponton man-of-the-match was shared between Goode, Copley and Barron.

Ponton: Cook, Bradley, Hutchinson, O’Leary, Copley, Allen, Rawding, Dixon, Yenibertiz, Barron, Chambers, Olalere, Goode.
