Radio Woking Sport, local sport weekend roundup

On the weekend when some fans were allowed back into grounds, at Meadow Lane on Saturday, none were present. This was due to Nottingham being in Tier 3.

So the Vanarama National League game between Notts County and Woking had an official attendance of none. The game itself was a poor one, with Notts County defeating Woking 1-0.

Kyle Wooton missed a penalty for the hosts but made amends in the 79th minute by grabbing the only goal of the game.

At the EBB Stadium on Saturday where some crowd were allowed, Aldershot defeated Dagenham and Redbridge 2-1.

The Shots opened up a two-goal cushion with goals from Mo Bettamer and Harry Panayiotou. The visitors pulled a goal back in the 89th minute to set up a grandstand finish, but the Shots held on for the win.

At Redding Way, Knaphill beat Frimley Green 4-1 in a game that also saw two red cards shown to Frimley Green.

Danny Taylor opened the scoring as early as the sixth minute for the hosts. Matt Stockhill doubled their advantage from the spot. Despite Frimley pulling a goal back, further goals from Adam Aliz and Zak Horkan was enough to wrap up a comfortable victory.

At the Laithwaite, Sheerwater suffered a 2-1 loss to Redhill. The visitors moved into a two-goal lead. Shane Rideout came off the bench to pull a goal back for Sheerwater with a quarter of an hour to go, but it wasn’t enough as Redhill took all three points.

Guildford City have booked their name into the hat for the 3rd round draw of the FA Vase for the first time in ten years after a 4-2 win over AFC Uckfield Town on Saturday.

The hosts drew first blood before City levelled through Eli Ogunseye. The visitors nudged ahead when Mike Coppinger netted. A penalty from Dan Stewart and another successful spot kick from Athan Smith-Joseph put Guildford well in control.

Uckfield pulled a goal back from the spot in the 86th minute, but it was to little to late as the day belonged to Guildford.

Woking Ladies FC continued their unbeaten run after a 2-1 victory away at Tilehurst on Sunday.

Despite falling a goal down, goals from Chelsea Goulter and Joey Harfield-Brown was enough to secure the win and maintain the girls 100% record and move them to withing three points of the top of the league with games in hand.

In basketball, Surrey Scorchers opened their BBL Championship campaign with two defeats.

On Saturday at Surrey Sports Park they suffered a 84-72 loss to last season’s champions Leicester Riders.

The visitors led by 18 points at the half way mark, but a strong second half from the Surrey side put pressure on Riders, but it wasn’t to be. Captain Tayo Ogedengbe top scored for the hosts with 17 points.

Twenty four hours later Scorchers were on the road to Sheffield to face the Sharks and suffered a heavy defeat 105-61.

In rugby Harlequins continued their solid start to the new Gallagher Premiership season with a 34-24 victory against Gloucester at Kingsholm.

Alex Dombrandt got the visitors off to a flying start by crossing after only four minutes. Ed Slater levelled for the cherry and whites before James Chisholm crashed over on the stroke of half time to give Harlequins a 17-10 lead at the interval.

Two minutes of madness almost cost Harlequins the match when Andre Esterhuzen saw red for an elbow into the face and a minute later Glen Young received a yellow card.

Despite playing 35 minutes with 14 men Harlequins still had time to score a further try from Nathan Earle and when Dombrandt darted over for his second of the game it produced the try bonus point.

There was still time for Gloucester’s James Hanson to go over twice, but Quins held on to continue their recent run of victories at Kingsholm and move the Londoners up to fifth in the table.

Harlequins Women ran in nine tries and made it seven bonus point wins in a row after a crushing 61-17 victory over Bristol Bears Women at the Stoop on Saturday afternoon.
