Sutton Bridge and Punchbowl Panthers are both celebrating after lifting the Spalding Sunday Football League’s top two knockout trophies.
Sunday’s League Knockout Cup final at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field saw ten-man Bridge beat Gosberton Sunday 2-0, despite the dismissal of Jake Lally for two yellow cards.
It mattered little, with Matthew Eaton and Ben Partridge both notching to land the trophy for their side.
The success made up for last week’s Mont Pell Trophy final loss, as Punchbowl landed the trophy with a thrilling 4-3 win over Sutton Bridge, after extra time.
A brace from Tom Gosling, who was also sent off, and further strikes from Ashley Coddington and Jon Turner delivered the silverware for the Panthers, with Lee Still (2) and Jack Murley bagging for Sutton Bridge.
In Sunday’s league action, Gary Piper smashed six to fire leaders Pinchbeck United Sunday to a whopping 13-0 win over Spalding Seas End Wanderers.
Stacy Cartwright also netted a treble, with Kieran Rose (2), Aidan Moore and Tom Roberts on the mark too.
Punchbowl, meanwhile, are up to third after seeing off Lutton 6-2 at the Castle.
Turner led the spree with a double, with Gosling, Coddington, Ryan Wheeler and Brendan Taylor the others to notch. The consolation strikes for ninth-placed Lutton came from Steve Wright and Dan Ewing.
The other game last weekend saw in-form Fenway cruise to a 5-1 victory at Sutton St James.
Scott Burrell, Ben Holland, Josh McGuire, Scott Phillips and Joshua Prince were all among the goals at the Fred Hoyles Memorial Ground.
Andrew Cooper fired a solitary reply for the hosts, who stay eighth.
