BISHOPS Lydeard Reserves need just one point from their final two games to wrap up Division 1 of the Invest Southwest Taunton Saturday League, writes Matt Whelan.

A 5-1 win over Porlock put them 12 points clear of Bridgwater Sports, with Patrick Sherwood now club top scorer with 18 after notching twice.

Ruiz Amauri, Wayne Harding and Jack Kelly completed the scoring.

Bridgwater Sports remain in the title race by the skin of their teeth, after a pair of narrow away wins.

On Saturday they won 4-3 at fifth-placed Galmington Dragons, thanks to Olly Down’s brace and further strikes from Paul Organ and Jamie Evans.

Then, on Tuesday night, Sports beat Wembdon 2-1 to keep the Lydeard title celebrations on ice.

Wembdon had earlier slaughtered bottom club Morganians 9-0 to ensure a top three finish; Dan Rossiter scored four goals, Ed Habberfield three, and Ash Bargery and Mal Tulley one apiece.

Creech Cougars enjoyed a decent week, beating Redgate 2-1 before a 2-2 draw with Alcombe Rovers.

Jack Farmer and Tom Maddocks netted the crucial goals against Redgate, with Josh Champion replying.

Adam Barter and Euan Gunn’s strikes secured a point against Alcombe, to see Creech safe in eighth.

North Petherton, meanwhile, won 2-1 at Watchet Town Reserves, with Josh Gracie hitting both goals.

In Division 2, leaders FC Castlemoat destroyed Bridgwater Grasshoppers 15-1.

With Stogursey hot on their heels, Moat came out all guns blazing to keep their title prospects in their own hands.

Shane Hills, Ronnie Robbilliard and Charlie Wilson bagged hat-tricks, with Ben Evett (2), Benn Bartlett (2), Nick Izzard and Jordan Rose also scoring.

Stogursey swept aside Butlin’s 5-0 to stay level on points with Moat.

Mike Watts took the match ball by scoring three, as Andy Caldwell and Brad Baker added a goal apiece.

FC Castlemoat will claim the title on the final day at Butlin’s, if they equal or better Stogursey’s result at Norton Fitzwarren.
