Crystal Rangers and Bellboys both played the majority of this game with just 10 men each players failed to show for the start at 1.30pm. Bellboys won quite comfortably, beating the team in blue 3-1, and taking their points tally to 14.

Josh Young, out on the right wing, as the star of this Bellboys victory, setting up 2 goals and also getting on the score sheet.

The first goal came after 12 minutes, Josh with a good run and cross, which found Ryan Benjamin who finished into the bottom left hand corner of the net. On 25 mins it was Josh on the score sheet, again from just outside the right side of the box, rifling in a powerful shot that left the keeper flapping.

Crystal Rangers to their credit battled hard in the first half, and after some determined tackling in midfield by Andrew Yon, his cross found Gary Benjamin unmarked and able to volley in to give Rangers hope.

This hope was short lived though as Bellboys completely dominated the second half. Scott Crowie added the 3rd goal and his 10th of the season. There were further chances for Bellboys, but they failed to convert them.

Final score, Bellboys 3, Crystal Rangers 0
