LODDON had a little bit of luck, a great team performance, more goals and three points - for the second week running.
Loddon got off to the best possible start against hosts Dersingham Rovers inside two minutes. Chohan chased a long ball and won a corner.
The cross eluded everyone but Chohan again refused to let it go, retrieved, crossed and the ball hit the bar and into the net.
A poor clearance by the home keeper only found Gary Summons in the centre circle. He tried an instant strike but was off target. Loddon pushed forward and Chohan laid the ball to Ricky Summons. He found Sadler on the left who drove a superb cross to the far post where Dan Andersen dived full length to head home one of the goals of the season.

Ricky Summons then covered the left-back position and passed to Robin Andersen. He found Sadler, and via Gary Summons and Brown, Dan Andersen stretched the home keeper to end a lovely flowing move.

On 34 minutes a clumsy challenge by Way on the No 6 in the box gave the ref no option but to point to the spot.
This goal gave Rovers a lift and they enjoyed a little more possession but Loddon continued to pass the ball and spread play to both flanks.
Robin Andersen sent in a fierce cross which hit Rovers' No 5 on the hand on the edge of the box. He was unfortunate to get booked and Way was inches from connecting to Brown's kick. Collins read a through ball in good time and saw a left wing cross go over the bar.
Rovers had the first effort of the second half but shot over. On 54 minutes Dan Andersen crossed, Chohan challenged, Sadler retrieved the loose ball and fed Robin Andersen. His cross was met by Brown who fired in at the second attempt to make it 2-1 to Loddon.
Ricky Summons got a telling toe-in to Sadler, he found Dan Andersen and his return was met by Sadler at close range but the effort cleared the bar. A good spell saw Dan Andersen slice wide and Sadler and Brown drives covered by the keeper. Collins covered a Rovers shot well and Loddon continued to dominate as Chohan had a chance off target.
On 75 minutes Marjoribanks came on for Brown. Collins kicked long, Gary Summons won it and found Chohan on the right. He fed Marjoribanks in the box who turned his shot past the keeper with his very first touch.
Frost came on for Sadler, received the ball from Ricky Summons, found Dan Andersen whose cross was headed in by Marjoribanks, only to be ruled offside.
Durrant cleared to Gary Summons and then Marjoribanks played a neat return pass to Dan Andersen whose shot was deflected over. A great Loddon move then developed from Robin Andersen through Marjoribanks, Chohan, Gary Summons to Dan Andersen whose cross was cleared.
Final score: 4-1 to Loddon.
