Bedwell Rangers A 4 MDFC Panthers 1
BEDWELL Rangers attacked strongly from the start against MDFC, quickly scoring the first goal and followed this with another less than 10 minutes later after finding space down the left flank.
It could have been worse as Bedwell were awarded a penalty but they missed the chance to go 3-0 up as Ethan Cheshum saved the spot kick.
Panthers took a while to get their game together however they were unfortunate to see two good efforts hit the Bedwell post towards the end of the first half, but soon after Joe Powley boosted the Panthers' spirits by scoring from a well taken corner to reduce the deficit to 2-1 just before half time.
The second half saw the Panthers working much harder as team as they surged forward and passed effectively.

Man-of-the-match Charlie Barnes worked tirelessly on the pitch and was unlucky with a couple of long range efforts which both went narrowly wide.
Stuart Dingwell worked hard in defence but unfortunately Bedwell scored another two goals before the final whistle to make it 4-1, a result which slightly flattered the hosts.
Bedwell Rangers B 3 MDFC Tigers 0
THE Tigers, similar to the Panthers, got off to a slow start in the first half.
Bedwell came on strong dominating the play and they scored three goals in quick succession as they barely let the Tigers near the ball.
Three down at half time the boys came back on the pitch with renewed energy and high spirits.
Ben Champion and Rhys Davies worked hard to keep the Melbourn defence strong but Champion found time to go on a mazy run from one end of the pitch to the other just running out of steam at the last.
Man-of-the-match Sean Roberts was highly instrumental in most of the better moments for the Tigers but this was a well deserved win for Bedwell.
