6:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
SPECTRUM are the only team in the Swindon & District League Premier Division with a 100 per cent winning record.
They made it two victories out of two with a 7-2 victory over Kingsdown at the weekend.
Midfielder Eddie Allsop bagged a four-goal salvo and Carl O’Regan, Craig Kelly and Hugo Teixeira also converted.
Kingsdown’s goals came courtesy of a Mike Lichota curling free kick from 20 yards and an own goal.
Hot on Spectrum’s heels are Swiss Chalet, who defeated Sportz Central 5-3.
Central took the lead but a Neil Herring penalty made it 1-1 and Lewis Polden volleyed Swiss Chalet ahead from a cross-field pass by Daniel Cooper.
A long-range lob saw Central equalise again just before half-time but later on Mark Hughes restored the Chalet advantage.
Daryl Herring poked beyond the keeper to make it 4-2 and Hughes doubled his personally tally to make it 5-2. Central scored a late third but it was not enough.
Fox & Hound are also in the leading pack following a 2-1 win against Queensfield. Zachary Ockwell and Lee Gratton registered with Shane Hibbert netting for the defeated side.
Old Town returned to winning ways with a 3-1 win over DJC Marlborough, as Chris Wood bagged a brace and Joe Gelston also got on the scoresheet.
In Division One, four teams are tied at the top on six points, including leaders Swindon Spitfires, who trounced Redhouse 11-0.
