In a game that could have gone either way, Sandiacre Town eventually triumphed 3-2 at Bingham Town. Jordan Leonardi put Sandiacre ahead before they squandered a chance to double the lead as Harry Haywood in the Bingham goal saved a penalty. The home side then equalised on the stroke of half time via Chris Bradford’s head. Early in the second period Michael Carpenter gave Bingham the lead only for Jordan Smith to equalise for Sandiacre with their second spot kick. Carpenter got ten minutes in the sin bin for arguing with the award of the penalty. His side held out with ten men but midway through the half Leonardi got the visitors’ third goal, and with it, the points.
On Friday evening the pendulum similarly swung back and forth as Eastwood CFC Development hosted Cotgrave. The visitors raced into a three goal lead thanks to Bassey Okon, Lee Potts and Adam Gray but Eastwood managed to level matters before half time. Kieran Knight set up Callum McGarry for the first before they swapped roles and Knight netted; Takunda Mushambi got the leveller on the stroke of half time. Knight got his second to give Eastwood a 4-3 lead midway through the second period but Potts fired home a free kick in the closing moments to ensure it was honours even.
