SPORTING Club Inkberrow maintained their impressive winning run on Tuesday thanks to a 3-1 win over Abingdon United, moving them up to third in the Hellenic League Division One table. 

Berrow's Tom Emblem provided one and scored the other two, including a stunning 25-yard strike in the second half, as the hosts made it six league wins on the bounce.

It was Abingdon who started on the front foot in the opening exchanges but Berrow managed to get a foothold in the game and their efforts were rewarded when an Emblem corner was headed home by William Skelton on 19 minutes.

The home side then scored again in the 25th minute in rather fortuitous fashion, as Emblem's corner kick beat everyone and nestled in the net to shock the 116-strong crowd in attendance. 

But this seemed to spark Abingdon into life and the visitors halved the deficit after a good break down the right saw Dylan Conlan finish well past Thomas Nicholls on 29 minutes. 

Abingdon carried their momentum into the second half but despite playing on the front-foot, Berrow re-established their two-goal lead against the run of play when the impressive Emblem unleashed a rocket into the top corner from 25 yards.

That seemed to extinguish the visitors' hopes and Berrow managed to see out the game, although they could have furthered their lead. Luke Alcock, Skelton and Alex Quaynor went close but in the end it mattered not as the hosts secured the three points, moving them to third in the table. 

Berrow are five points off the leaders Malmesbury Victoria, but do have a game in hand on both them and Clanfield 85 in second.
