Deeping United hit six goals for the second successive Saturday in their weekend win over at Tydd Reserves in Division Three of the Peterborough League.

Steve Jucikas bagged a brace with Scott Spearink, Jake Lyon, Daryn Whiteman and Steve Christmas also netting for Ian Abbott and Mark Wyer's side.

Abbott said: "We know that we can't afford to drop many more points after drawing with Wittering and losing against Casterton.

"We were pretty dominant, had the possession and then got it right in the final third when we had to. We have got pace in the team again and quality.

"I can't ask for much more because we have scored 12 goals in the last two games and conceded none. Defensively we are sound because we have conceded just three goals in six games."

United made their first breakthrough midway through the opening half when Lyon played the ball in to Spearink who hooked a shot goalwards from just outside the area that looped over the home goalkeeper.

They were unable to add to their tally further in the first half but then netted five times without reply after the break.

Their second goal arrived 11 minutes after the interval with Christmas winning a header and the tricky Lyon taking possession before racing away to score.

Whiteman then netted the goal of the game with United third's as he cut in from the left and went past a couple of challenges before unleashing a superb strike from outside the area that flew into the top corner.

Christmas then headed home from a corner for his first goal of the season and his sixth for the club before Jucikas netted a late double to seal the win.

Jorge Barbosa and Spearink provided the ammunition to set up Jucikas who has now scored more than 60 goals for the club.

Casterton remain in second spot in the division after they made a convincing return to winning ways with a seven-goal home success.

The Rutland side bounced back from two successive defeats with a 7-1 home victory over Dreams.

Reece Berry and the prolific Ryan Brown both struck twice for Casterton with Sam Bush, Daniel Knighton and Mitchell Pillin also on target.

A Liam Reilly hat-trick wasn't enough to save Wittering Premiair A from a 5-3 home defeat against King's Cliffe.

Alex Walton struck twice for the victorious Hedgehogs with Shane Chambers, Toby Eldred and Michael Slann their other scorers.

Andrew Moss was another three-goal marksman for Wittering Premiair as their first team shared the spoils in a 3-3 draw at Leverington in the Premier Division.

Dan Evans hit a hat-trick as Deeping Rangers Reserves ran out 6-1 home winners against Crowland's second string in Division One.

Evans scored his treble in the first half with Jamie Sharpe also on target as the Clarets scored four times before the break.

Ben Porter and Nathan Pickering then netted in the second period with Jake Woodward scoring Crowland's consolation.

Stamford Bels Reserves netted their first win of the Division Two season after a 3-2 victory over Orton Rangers courtesy of goals from Josh Dowell (2) and Paul Cramp.

Wittering Premiair Reserves lost by the same margin against Netherton's second string despite goals from Lee Calitri and Jack Raynor.

Glinton and Northborough were also on the wrong end of a 3-2 defeat against Polonia with Harry Ledger and Thomas Neaverson scoring for the Spartans.

Sam Blackwell blasted a treble for Uppingham Reserves in their 5-0 home win over Orton Rangers Reserves in Division Four. Omar Elkashoty and Jack Godfrey also netted.

Deeping United Reserves lost 4-3 at Warboys in the same division with Daniel Reeve, Oliver Fountain and an own goal compiling their tally.

Deeping United A were hit for six in their home Division Five match with Ramsey Reserves while Deeping Rangers Development were 5-2 away winners at Park Farm Pumas Reserves.
