Deeping Rangers into semi-final, great comeback win for Yaxley, but Peterborough Sports are beaten
Deeping Rangers moved into the semi-finals of the United Counties League Cup with a cracking 2-1 win at Premier Division leadrs Shepshed Dynamo last night (January 7).
Shepshed have only lost one league match this season, but two goals from Cameron Johnson made a last-gasp Dynamo goal an irrelevance.
Deeping will play at Rothwell Corinthians in the semi-final.
Blackstones lost ground on the leaders in UCL Division One. Player-boss Lee Clarke fired Stones in front in the first-half, but they went down 2-1 at St Andrews. Whittlesey Athletic play at Huntingdon tonight (January 8)
Yaxley pulled off a fantastic comeback in Division One Central of the Southern League. They were 2-0 down at half-time at Barton Rovers, but goals from Joel Earps, Dan Jarvis and Sam Bennett gave Yaxley a second successive 3-2 win.
Jarvis has recently moved to Yaxley from Deeping.
But Peterborough Sports were beaten 2-0 at Barwell in a scruffy Premier Division match and dropped to fourth.
