WESTFORD remain unbeaten as the Keyline Taunton Sunday League heads into it’s christmas break after they beat Bathpool 3-0 at home.

They remain big favourites to retain the Division 1 title with seven wins in eight games as they beat the ten men of Bathpool. The game was refereed by Premiership whistler Mike Cairns as he began the road to recovery from an injury and he was lucky enough to see Mark Wadham’s outstanding 30-yard strike open the scoring.

In the second half Craig Plumridge added a second and late on Lee Hellier finished the job, dispatching a penalty after Bathpool’s keeper was sent off.

Westford are now eight points clear of Spartans who picked up three points from a Staplegrove no show.

Ash Rangers go third after a convincing 6-1 win at Shepherds Wednesday. Wednesday took the lead but Rangers responded superbly with midfielder Aaron Ellicott grabbing four goals and Tom Wadham hitting two.

PQR won 2-0 at Tone Youth. In an evenly matched contest it was Tone‘s inability to score which cost them dearly.

A Dean Yarde goal proved to be the difference in Bagborough’s 1-0 win at Cotford. The win keeps Bagborough in the hunt for promotion from Division 2.

Elsewhere Old Inn and Black Horse battled out an entertaining 2-2 draw. Old Inn looked odds on winners as goals from Michael Kearley and Steve Scorse put them 2-0 up but Gary McKiernan and Dan Evans gave Black Horse a share of the spoils.

Westgate won a 12 goal thriller 7-5 at Ark Rangers. Simon Waugh scored a hat-trick of penalties and John and James Kierle, Mike Cropper and Ducan Lane all scored one in a game that won’t be remembered for its defending.

Watchet and Spaxton remain on course for promotion from Division 3 as leaders Watchet won 3-1 at Carhampton and Spaxton won 10-1 at Eagle Tavern.

Damion Redman scored Carhampton’s consolation while James Bell was the main man for Spaxton with five goals. Adam Prescott hit two and Dan Sellick, Lee Horsey and Andrew Burland all scored one.

The only game in Division 4 saw mid-table Trinity Rangers beat Pegasus 5-2. Robert Meigh scored four times for Trinity and Lloyd Shirley added the other.
