Blofield Utd 6, Loddon Utd 1
LODDON finished their season, the last under the stewardship of Ciaran Creegan and Dave Matthews, with a whimper.
A depleted squad, due to the call of cricket, managed to compete gamely against the title challengers for 45 minutes, but were outplayed in the second half.
Blofield opened the scoring when a controversial free kick against Baylis was converted at the second attempt after a block by Matt Ayre. Dan Andersen drew a free-kick which Ayre hoisted into the Blofield box. A clever decoy run by Jermy distracted the keeper and the ball sailed home, with the last touch apparently coming off a defender.
Marjoribanks had a tame effort from outside the box, and Dan Ayre was close to latching onto a teasing Jermy cross and shot wide soon after.
Creegan came on and his first touch was to head a corner off the line. Just before the break, another ball in from Blofield's right was deflected by Durrant just enough to beat Howes.

Two minutes into the second half, Blofield won a throw near the right corner, the ball was squared and a simple finish extended the home lead.
A penalty appeal for a Blofield hand-ball in the box was turned down. Blofield attacked again, Howes parried the shot but the follow-up was tapped in.
Stroud, who put in an energetic display after coming on, put a good ball through to Summons for a half chance, Marjoribanks sliced wide, and Durrant worked his socks off and Creegan had an effort. But Blofield bagged two more goals.
A great 50 minutes from Creegan but Musker McIntyre MoM is debutant Jermy at right-back.
