There may only have been a few games to beat the wet weather but there was certainly no shortage of goals and shocks in the Peterborough Youth League on Sunday.
The two biggest upsets came in the Under 16 age group where both the Division One and Division Two leaders suffered defeats.
Division One table-toppers Stamford Red were away to Eye United and they were well beaten at Lindisfarne Road.
Goals from Harry Catanach (2), Jack Eldridge and Jamie Scott earned Eye a 4-1 win with Oliver Wood scoring Stamford’s consolation effort.
Spalding Blue are top of Division Two but they came a cropper for the first time this season when losing 3-1 at Ryhall Orange.
Zachary Treweek (2) and Frederick Palmer were the Orange scorers with Thomas Fisher netting for Spalding.
There was also a disappointing start to the new year for Spalding Orange in Division Three. They could have gone top with a win at home to Thurlby Tigers but slipped to a 3-2 defeat.
Oliver Goode, Isaac Jones and Daniel Watson found the back of the net for the Tigers with Daniel Bright and Oliver Green replying.
The place to be for goals on Sunday was undoubtedly Under 18 Division Two with the four games played producing 37 of them.
Leading the way with a whopping 12-1 win over Crowland were Bourne Town Red.
Daniel Rayner was their hat-trick hero with Alfred Hick, Thomas Morgan and Solomon Rayment all firing doubles. Completing the rout with single strikes were Scott Hardwick, James Maltby and Lui Tompsett.
British School of Sport also reached double figures. They beat Outwell Swifts 11-4 with Leandro Silva-Borges and Liam Stone both bagging four goals. The others came from Rares Demeter (2) and Oliver Flint.
Second-placed March Saracens narrowed the gap on leaders Spalding United to three points with a 4-0 defeat of bottom club Ketton. Their marksmen were Konrad Bednarz, Matthew Holden, Archie Murfitt and Brettlan Liddy.
The other game in Under 18 Division Two saw third-placed Glinton and Northborough Black beat Pinchbeck United 4-1 through goals by Stephen Coombe-Boxall (2), Ciaran Kelly and Joshua Roberts.
It was also a good day for the Glinton club at Under 15 level as Glinton and Northborough Amber beat Division One rivals Bourne Town 9-0 with goals by Oliver Foster (3), Ryan Bointon, Daniel Bonser, Jack Martin, Joseph Mills, Benjamin Romaine and Jacob Large.
In Under 15 Division Two, there was a big shock as Rippingale and Folkingham picked up their first win of the season.
And they did it in style, winning 7-3 at Blackstones with goals by Jack Friend (3), Robin Emery, Luke Heppenstall, Oliver Smith and Thomas Ellison.
Blackstones scorers were Dawda Deen Davies, Alfie Earlam and Dylan Ellis.
Jacob Hoffman was star of the show for Under 15 Division Three leaders Thorpe Wood Rangers Red. He netted five times in their 7-2 win at Parkside with Keagan Yeoman getting the other two.
