Stilton won a place in the Hunts Intermediate Cup Final with a 3-1 semi-final win at Eaton Socon on Saturday (January 17).

Richard Baines, Garry Beaver and Benjamin Panting scored the Stilton goals and it could still be an all-Peterborough Premier Division final in March as Riverside’s scheduled semi-final at Brampton was postponed. Riverside will get another crack this Saturday (January 24).

Peterborough Sports Reserves bowed out in the fourth round of the Northants Junior Cup on penalties to Irchester Reserves following a 2-2 draw. Matthew Jarvis and Adam Richardson scored for Sports, but Corey Kingston was sent off after retaliating to an alleged biting offence.

There was no change at the top of the Premier Division as leaders Oakham and second-placed Coates both wn. Lewis Leckie scored the only goal of the game for Oakham at Pinchbeck, while goals for Danny Dance and Rikki Wilmer enabled Coates to overcome the loss of Jamie Darlow to a red card.

Oakham remain top on goal difference.

Third-placed Netherton’s scheduled game at Uppingham was postponed, but city rivals ICA Sports lost for the second Saturday in a row. ICA were 2-0 up early on against Deeping Rangers Reserves, but went down 5-3. Connor Pilbeam (3) and Sam Thompson (2) shared the Deeping goals.

Ian Bradbury claimed a hat-trick as Moulton Harrox crushed lowly Crowland 6-0.
