Quorn Reserves 2-1 Barwell Reserves
Canaries were the better side but came away with nothing as they unluckily lost through an own goal.

Athium Midland Football Combination League Division One
Report by Rowland Jordan
Shaun Robinson started the action, when in the second minute his right foot strike was saved by keeper Luke Barratt low to his left.
On 16 minutes the Reds took the lead through a free kick, Alex Honour, from 22 yards out sent a right foot shot into the corner of the net past the diving Leon Oswald.
Both sides had chances with both Honour and Robinson making excellent efforts.
Barwell levelled in the 43rd minute. Tom Lillicrapp whipped in a left foot cross that was firmly headed past Barratt by Robinson from eight yards out at the back post.
Twenty minutes after the break and Quorn had a free kick on the edge the area. This time Honour fired over.
Two minutes later and Quorn took the lead. A right wing cross by George Lutaaya took a wicked deflection straight into the path of Louis Gamble, who could nothing to get out of the way. The ball rebounding off Gamble and into the net.
In the 82nd minute substitute Alex Ball sent in a cross from the right wing that Lillicrapp flicked towards the goal, only to be thwarted by a magnificent save from Barratt.
It was a travesty of justice for the Canaries to come away pointless and as one Quorn supporter said to me..."you were robbed there good and proper mate".
