Oxhey Jets fell to a 5-1 defeat over Easter weekend at the hands of Sun Sports in the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division.

Jets went one down after just a few minutes when stand-in keeper Dave Jacks got his hands to a shot but saw the ball hit the post and into the net.

Three goals soon followed which Jets will not want to watch back, as they fell four goals behind in the first quarter of an hour to leave a tough remaining 75 minutes.

However, the Hertfordshire side managed to pull themselves together and whilst not a serious threat to the result they pulled one back through John Smith in the second half.

Tim O’Sullivan’s Sun side scored a fifth in stoppage time to seal a miserable afternoon for Jets.

At the time of going to press, Jets were set to face Leverstock Green yesterday evening in the St Mary’s Cup quarter-final.

Sports, however, did not fare well on Tuesday evening when they lost 2-0 to Berkhamsted at the Broadwater.

Despite playing most of the second half with 10 men, the Comrades notched twice against their SSML rivals.

Jack Stevens, who was playing at right-back, received a yellow card in each half.

Berko took the lead through Sam Bateman, who got his first goal for the club with a 73rd minute shot that took a deflection and looped over Matt Evans in the Sun goal.

The home side doubled their lead when Ashton Campbell was hauled down on a speedy run in the penalty area.

Dan Jones stepped up and sent Evans the wrong way.

Berko’s last away game of the season is at Leighton Town tomorrow.

Last Saturday, Berkhamsted faced an away trip to Tring Athletic which resulted in a goalless draw.

The game bucked a previous trend which had seen 73 goals in 18 previous encounters, an average of four goals per game.

Tring were also held to a 2-2 draw with Holmer Green over Easter at Airedale Park in midweek.

After falling behind midway through the first half from a Eliot Derby cracker past keeper Jack Hopwood, Athletic managed to work their way back into the game and after turning the game on its head, took the lead with eight minutes left on the clock.

Jack Reed slotted home the equaliser from a penalty before Max Hercules scored their second. But Tom Gant scored the equaliser to seal a point for his side.

Green scored four past Broxbourne Borough on Saturday as Danilson Vincente, Ross Adams, David Lawrence and Jonathan Lacey all found the net.
