Grouville, who were again well under-strength, progressed to the semi-finals of the competition following a 6-5 penalty shoot-out victory over Sylvans after a goal-less draw after extra-time.

Grouville scored all six kicks they took before goalkeeper Gareth Bayley won them the match with a save.

Grouville’s scorers were Jason Byrne, Toni Cardoso, Chris Carter, David Syvret Paul Nicell and Shaun Heslop.

Scottish slumped to their heaviest defeat in a good number of years, the injury-hit Channel Islands champions having no complaints with the 5-0 result against Guernsey Northerners, the team they defeated in last April’s Upton Park Trophy at Springfield.

ST PAUL’S and Trinity maintained their unbeaten records in Division I on Saturday, leaving the Saints two points clear at the top of table from the parish club.

Corner Second half goals from Craig Leitch – direct from a corner for the second time this season – and substitute Nathan Taylor, with his first touch, secured St Paul’s the points to rob Tower of at least a share of the spoils after playing some good football.

Tower’s problem this season is obviously in front of goal; they’ve hit the target just twice in five consecutive Division I defeats.

Trinity, who had defender Stephen Jones sent off just before half time following two cautions inside a couple of minutes, scored their winner in stoppage time – Lee Jones’ shot from 18 yards squirming through goalkeeper Daniel Gillett’s despairing dive low to his left.

Carl Scott shot Rozel ahead from the penalty spot before John Beatson levelled the scores in the 20th minute with a curling shot into a top corner from 20 yards.

Jimmy Reilly slid in at a far post to make it 2-1 only for the hosts to equalise when James O’Haire forced the ball home from eight yards.

Time was almost up with Trinity grabbed what turned out to be the winner to remain two points behind leaders St Paul’s and three ahead of champions Jersey Scottish, who have a game in hand, and the Portuguese Club.

SPORTING Academics and St Brelade served up a goal feast at the IJ Bathe Field on Saturday with the Accies winning by the odd goal in 15! Ben Ahier and Jamie Savory both bagged hat-tricks in an amazing 8-7 PW Memorial Trophy preliminary round success after the teams were inseparable at 6-6 after 90 minutes.

St Brelade were heading for victory at 6-5 with minutes remaining after clawing back a 4-1 deficit.

Jamie Roberts and Phil Helleur completing the Accies’ scoring with Ollie Nightingale scoring four times for the losers while junior Ricky Figueira bagged a brace and player-coach Dave Fitton a single.

Winners In the came competition goals by Hamlyn Moon and Jamie Shaw guided Beeches Old Boys to a 2-0 success over the hosts St Martin/SCF.

In first round matches next January, Sporting Academics face Jersey Nomads while the Old Boys oppose St Ouen.

St Ouen continue to lead Jersey Wanderers by a point at the top of Division I Reserves after both won, the Saints 2-0 at home to St Brelade after goals by Ben Burton and Jack Crawford.

Wanderers returned 6-2 winners from St Peter where Scott Slicer and Dave Wright both scored two for the winners and Dave Ibbotson and Stuart Brown one apiece.

St Peter had Neal Crowell sent off for alleged foul language and first-team manager Jon Trigg may also be in hot water following comments he is alleged to have made to the match official during the game.

Rozel Rovers and St Paul’s moved into third and fourth places above Grouville, who slipped a couple of positions to fifth.

Rozel won 4-0 against Jersey Scottish at the Airport while the Saints defeated Grouville 6-2 at St Saviour.

Paul McInness, Stefan Dimmett and Declan Sowney bagged a brace each for St Paul’s with Nelio Marote and Sam Dustow replying.

Ian Watts marked his 60th birthday and retirement game with a goal in St Lawrence’s 4-3 home defeat by St Clement in Division II Reserves.

Consolation Preeda Tumkaew and John Patterson also registered for St Lawrence while Matt Rawling grabbed a hat-trick for St Clement all after team-mate Claude Batiste had open the scoring by netting direct from a corner kick! The Portuguese Club remain top by one point from Sporting Academics after both won, Portuguese 4-0 at Les Quennevais against Trinity while James Ware scored both Accies goals in a 2-1 win against Jersey Nomads.

Martyn Jubb bagged the latter’s consolation goal at the FB Fields.

St John coasted to a 7-0 home success against Beeches Old Boys with Pawel Wydro, Ross Duncan, Keiran Walker, Jakub Szczesniar, Luke Bichard and Luke Baker among their marksmen.

Jersey Wanderers, who last weekend wrongly thought they had played a second-team registered player, and Grouville are joint top of Division C.

Wanderers won 5-1 at the Hockey Club against Sporting Academics following two goals by Scott Young and singles from Jon Chapman, Matthew Munns and Craig Beeley.

Ollie Lucas replied.

Grouville ended St Brelade’s 100 per cent record after returning 5-3 victors from the West after doubles from Ricci Cook and Sam Wright and Ross Donaldson’s single.

On target for the hosts were Marcel Thomas (two) and Jason Gow.

Sean Anderton hit a hat-trick in Rozel’s 4-1 success over St Martin/SCF at Le Couvent.

Per Olov Nas also registered for the winners and Eddie Daly for the losers from a penalty kick.

St Peter picked up their first points of the campaign as Rab Campbell and Leo Da Silva were on target in a 2-1 success at St Clement.
