Jake Baker, David Stevens, Sean Archbold and Jordan Wolfendale put Silky to the sword. Luke Sanders hit a great solo goal for the hosts, but the game was already out of sight. Lewis Lynn starred for Paragon, with Josh Tuckwell best for Farra.

Thorney Close Inn could have secured a late share of the points against Redhouse Last Orders, but keeper Martin Jackson saw his penalty hit the post – as the visitors edged home 3-2 in Division One.

David Robinson and Kyle Gibson scored for Thorney earlier in the game, but Last Orders won it with strikes from Marc McNulty, Norman Newton and Andrew Arnold.
