Maldon Saints Greens 3 Dunmow Rhodes Lions 5

DUNMOW Rhodes Lions were back in action on Sunday and put in a spirited performance to come away with victory from Maldon.

On a cold and wet morning and on a heavy pitch, conditions were tough – and the start wasn’t ideal fro Lions with Greens taking the lead in the first minute.

But they quickly drew level when Christian Roles tucked the ball into the net after a cross from Adam Griggs.

Lions took the lead on 16 minutes when, from another Griggs corner, a Greens defender put the ball into his own net, before Sam Duberry added a third before half time.

Wilvale Rangers 4 Dunmow Rhodes 0

RHODES were soundly beaten in this clash with Wilvale.

With key players out, it was always going to be tough for Rhodes and they found themselves 2-0 down following silly mistakes.

Johnston in the Rhodes goal was outstanding, making save after save, and Thomson in midfield was a force to contend with, even saving a certain goal off the line.

The second half was all Wilvale who deserved their win.
