FIVE goals from Danny Phillips epitomised a five-star week for Infinity as they bagged a place in the NFC Hampshire Premier League Cup final and a 14th league win of the season.

Phillips helped himself to a brace in Infinity’s midweek cup tie with Paulsgrove, with Jimmy Hird finding a response on both occasions, to see the game end level, 2-2, after 90 minutes.

Infinity edged the shootout 4-3 to progress to the final where they will face the winners of the Sway v Bush Hill tie, writes Frankie Rudland.

It was a much more routine win for Infinity in the Premier Division on Saturday as Phillips plundered a hat-trick to cap off a very productive week for the frontman and Infinity as they ran out 10-2 winners over rock-bottom Hedge End Rangers.

Sam Floyd and Filipos Tzeridis notched two each, while Callum Parker, Terry New and Jamie White also got on the scoresheet for Infinity.

Hedge End’s Josh Ball grabbed two late consolation goals to slightly reduce the deficit.

Elsewhere in the Senior Division, Bush Hill narrowed the gap on leaders Locks Heath and leapfrogged Stockbridge after comfortably beating the latter 4-1 at home.

Winger Mark Barker – a recent signing from Brockenhurst - struck a brace to give Bush Hill a 2-0 lead before Stockbridge missed a penalty in what could have been a game-changing moment.

Jack Jewell made them pay when he added a third before Lewis Price-Lloyd pulled one back for Stockbridge, who were eventually consigned to a sixth loss of the season when Cain Prentice added a late fourth for Bush Hill.

The Millbrook boys are two points behind league leaders Locks Heath with a whopping six games in hand. Locks Heath spurned a chance to consolidate their lead after eighth-placed Liss Athletic snatched a 2-1 away win.

Brandon Bowman and David Harding struck either side of a Calum Britton penalty to elevate Liss into eighth spot.

Matt Vokes took to the spotlight for Sway as his hat-trick, supplemented by a Jake Bockhart double and a James Davis strike, earned the home side their ninth win of the season against 13th-placed Winchester Castle.

Relegation strugglers Colden Common yet again tasted defeat as title contenders Overton United struck twice through David Parry and Merson Webb to nick the victory.

Alex Simmons had managed to draw the hosts level, but it wasn’t to be for Common as they lost 2-1.

It was full marks for Four Marks in the Hampshire Premier League Division One as they ran out 5-3 winners at home to Michelmersh & Timsbury.

Martin Burt snatched an early brace before Ryan Bunney, Liam Markwick and Jamie Bentley ensured that Kabir Blathorn’s double and Ryan Gonyora’s strike were rendered futile.

Four Marks are second on goal difference with two games in hand over leaders Lyndhurst, while Michelmersh remain at the foot on the division.

Upham’s Paul Mail delivered a shock to leaders Lyndhurst, striking three times without reply to ensure all three points remained with the home side.

But it was AFC Petersfield who provided the biggest shock of the day, helping themselves to five goals from five different goal scorers as they demolished title contenders Netley Central Sports through William Yates, Ed Brundle, Gerald Joseph, Alfie Delaney and Frankie Smith. It was only Netley’s second league loss.
