SCEFL First Division

Gravesham Borough 4-3 Lewisham Borough
Punjab United 1-0 Holmesdale

Sevenoaks moved 13 points clear thanks to 2 second half Kenny Pogue goals. The hosts have now gone 5 games without a win.

A goal in each half was enough to see Sheppey bounce back from Cup Final heartbreak to get the win at Bearsted. Dan Bradshaw and Alfie Bates with the goals for the visitors to win their first game in the last 6.

Crowborough may well have kissed their Title hopes goodbye with this loss to Croydon. Henry Muggeridge opened the scoring in the 41st minute before Tom Phipp doubled the lead a few minutes later. With the last kick of the half Nathan Palmer found the net to get the visitors back in the game. It got better for Croydon in the 70th minute when Ashley-Paul Robinson continued his impressive start with this club by converting his penalty. Lauris Chin then grabbed the winner for the away side late in the game to surprise the hosts and leave them in a tough battle for second place.

Whitstable continued where they left off on Sunday by winning again to make it 20 games unbeaten and keep the pressure on Sevenoaks at the top. Josh Burchall, Danny Williams, Stuart West and Louis Sprisen all scored for the hosts while Peter Sweeney and Stephen Smith replied for 10 man Glebe.

Lewisham were denied their first point of 2018 by a last minute Gravesham winner. Lewisham were ahead early thanks to an own goal before Ross Pajett and Nick Nowotny scored early in the second half to turn the game around. Charlie Scrivemer then levelled before Jason Fregene put the hosts in the lead once more. Archie Todd equalised with ten to go but Roshane Morgan scored a last minute winner and Lewisham were to be denied that precious point.

Punjab went top of the League with an early Michael Hagan effort being the only goal of the night. It is now 14 games unbeaten for the hosts while Holmesdale fell to their 3rd defeat in a row.
