ON a day which saw a host of games fall foul of the weather, Middlezoy Rovers Reserves hung on for a hard-fought victory at home to Alcombe Rovers in Division One of the Taunton and District Saturday League.

A John Doyle header midway through the first half was enough to secure Zoy all three points against their West Somerset opponents.

Zoy hung on valiantly in the face of concerted Alcombe pressure with Joe Warren in the Zoy goal making a series of fine saves to ensure his team came away with their second league win of the season.

Wembdon's 6-2 defeat at home to Appletree Tone Youth was one of just two games to survive the weather in Division Two.

The visitors twice came from behind in a tough first half to lead 3-2, Ben Cheffey twice putting Wembdon in front.

The next goal proved to be important as Appletree went on to win 6-2 in a far more comfortable second half.

Craig Burnett got two of their goals, Derek Hellard, Chris Grave dug one out, Matt Bale and Nick Whyborn added one each.

Morganians' three points gained on Saturday sees them go level at the top of the Division Three table with The Gallery who didn't play.

It was a tight and competitive contest at Morganians where they were hosts to Milverton Rangers and they narrowly squeezed the victory 2-1 thanks to a goal each from Reece Standerwick and Nathan Barnard; Ryan Coombes replying for Rangers.

Highbridge Reserves picked up their first win of the season beating Sydenham Rangers 3-1 thanks to two Mark Chapman goals and one from Bradley Cann; Jake Adey scored for Rangers.

Nether Stowey Reserves picked up their first win of the season in convincing fashion, beating Dulverton Reserves 6-1 in Division Four.

Adam Taplin scored the opening goal of the game for Dulverton, but Dave Rowsell equalised for Stowey and Lee Villis' beautiful curler gave them the lead at half time.

After the break goals from Andy Rolland, Danny Plowright, David Trout and Kevin Ware's delightful chip sealed the win.

A brace of goals from Danny Skyner took Galmington Dragons Reserves into a commanding lead over Bridgwater Grasshoppers in Division Five, which was just reward for a confident and skilful first half performance.

Mike Stevenson extended it to 3-0 but Dragons, who had missed a penalty and seen a corner come back off the bar, should have finished the opposition off.

However, a spirited Grasshoppers fight back saw them pull two goals back through Leon Pillinger and James Cornish.

Both teams had chances in the last fifteen minutes but Dragons' disciplined and solid defence held on for the win.
