Brandhall have one foot in the semi-finals (SICM Sevens)

In tonight’s games we saw the final group match in the DBMT being played, as Tipton Family Church FC went head-to-head with Allstar Lions. In the previous 25 games between the two teams, the Lions have won 23 and drawn 2, thus the form book, both past and present suggested a convincing victory. However, even though the Lions did win, it was a close affair as they eventually ran out 6-4 winners.

Tipton Family Church FC 4  Goals: Robin Davies, Craig Eccleston, Sean Pugh, Reiss Pugh  MOTM: Stewart Bloor

In the other fixture we saw the first of the quarter-finals being played. The game was a first for the Sevens in that Brandhall & Quinton FC have never played Church On The Rock FC before. Again, the form book was heavily in favour of the former. With it being just 2-1 at the break, a potential upset was on the cards, but helped along by 5 from Dave Wall, Brandhall cleaned up with a 9-1 final score.

Brandhall & Quinton FC 9  Goals: Dave Wall (5), Matt McCardle (2), Andrew Spirett (2)  MOTM: Dave Wall

Church On The Rock FC 1  Goal: Allan Parkes  MOTM: Allan Parkes

Next week we see the completion of the Brandhall and COTR fixture, as all quarter-finals are over two legs. In the event of  ties, there will be  replays, as indeed there will be for semi-final and final games. Due to the face we’ve not had a single cancellation this season due to weather, we have time on our side this year.

Finally, we are looking at next season already, in particular The Summer Cup, which will start on June 2. Check out the category on the right-hand side of the page for next season’s information.
