Monmouthshire Windows East Gwent League

Division Two

AN early goal, timed at 90 seconds, gave Portskewett & Sudbrook the lead against visiting Caldicot Castle B, writes Bob Cypher.

Gareth Huntley struck the goal, firing low into the corner, but rather than be downhearted, Castle fought back and were 3-1 to the good at the break.

Despite Nathan Edinbrough’s volley doubling Port & Sud’s tally in the second half, the visitors ran out 6-2 winners.

McCauley Rice hit a first half hat-trick for Sudbrook CC at home to Raglan but his reward was to get the hook from manager Ricky Douglas at half time,

“We had a full bench and the manager wanted to give everyone a game,” Rice said as he watched the second half from the sidelines.

Sudbrook exposed a few frailties in the visitors’ defence as they rattled in a further four goals from Dan Currie, Marc Bradley, Chris Phillips and Connor Brown with no reply, to maintain their title challenge.

Elsewhere, Chepstow Athletic drew 3-3 at home to leaders Chepstow Town and Monmouth Town climbed to fourth place when they gained a 5-1 home win over Thornwell Red & White B.
