Rothwell Corinthians 6 Thrapston Town 1
Saturday, 19 April 2008
Corinthians needed a big win to stay in the hunt for a top three finish and they duly came up with the goods. A win in their final match at Buckingham and defeat for Daventry United at Peterborough Northern Star would see them claim third place on goal difference.
Corinths were quick off the mark with a brace from Dave Briffa after five and fourteen minutes and Andy White added a third a minute before the break.
The win was sealed by two more quick goals on resumption, Tony Ielapi netting after 50 minutes and Kevin Fox following suit three minutes later.
White completed the home tally ten minutes from time before Ben Morgan replied with an 85th minute Thrapston consolation from the penalty spot.
Rothwell: Tom Cross, Dan Cooper (Mark Sinclair), Chris Torrence, Chris Dunn, Tom Judge, Tony Ielapi (Mark Northover), Kevin Fox, Matt Coles, Dave Briffa, Luke Bewers, Andy White.
Thrapston: Louis McAllister, Matt Harris, Jake Wesby, Jack Petty (Chris Harris), Lee Purser (Tim Williams), Sam Duxbury, Mark Redding, Jason Lee, Jack Wisniewski, Ben Morgan, Clive Collyer (Duncan McNish).
