The treble remains a possibility for Catfield after two goals from the prolific Chad Pillar gained a hard- earned 2-0 Wiltshire Cup semi-final win against the holders Arches.

It set up a final on Easter Monday with the winners of Saturday's second semi-final between Golfers Arms and Lacon Arms.

The two sides met in the league last Saturday with a hat-trick from Daniel Goodrum helping Lacon Arms to a 5-1 win, the other goals coming from Del Salmon and Martin McColgan.

The treble was made slightly easier as MK United surrendered two points when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Great Yarmouth International, AD Hogg scored for MK with Diego Fernandes replying for International.

Reedham consolidated fourth place when they ended Tramway's revival with a 6-2 victory thanks to doubles from Gary Fitzgerald and Ross Charlton and one each from Jamie Brown and Wesley Noble-Parker.

Things are looking bleak for Tramway and Caister A as they are seven and eight points from safety with games rapidly running out.

Caister A lost a high-scoring encounter with Gunton which ended a lean spell for them which has seen them lose seven straight games and without a league win since November 8. Kyle Soanes (2) Ashley Leggett (2) Anton Ellis, Thomas Stafford, Geoff Longthorne and Ivan Leggett were on target in an 8-5 win at Caister.

Only Shrublands of the top three in Division Two picked up points as Arren Howarth (2) and Carl Logan scored in a narrow 3-2 win at home to Great Yarmouth Peelers.

MK United Reserves went behind in the opening minute to a goal from Albion (GY)'s Ryan Johnson and in the final minute of the half Matthew Oldham headed Albion further ahead.

That's the way it stayed until 10 minutes from time when Adam Secker pulled one back for MK but it proved in vain as Albion held on for the three points.

Third-placed Hemsby Reserves lost4-2 to Prostar Windows who scored through a S King hat-trick and one from Geoff Arbon.

Norfolk and Chance scored four for the third week running and collected all three points for the third consecutive game. They beat Carpathians 4-2 thanks to a double from Mark Sutton and one from Scott Foskett and an own goal.

The winning score was also 4-2 in the “Halvergate” derby as Gorleston Wanderers beat the team they share the pitch with, South Yarmouth, with Chris Thompson (2) Louis Boyle and Jason Rowe their goal scorers.

Two own goals went a long way to helping Paperclip to a 4-1 win at Martham A with P Botten and S Ingram also on target.
