Lewsey Park beat Sports to earn a cup victory
The Luton District & South Beds League Divisional Cups got under way at the weekend with the Premier Division teams split into two groups, with group A seeing Christians in Sport lose 3-2 to Lewsey Park.
Christians took the lead midway through the first half with Peter Wilson firing in from the edge of the box following a goalmouth scramble.
Lewsey then levelled when Jonno Barnett’s free kick was headed in by skipper Rory Bray, while after the break, Park won a penalty which was converted by Ryan Smith to put his side in front.
Lee Mooney made it 3-1, before Christians gave themselves a lifeline when Reece Morley netted, but it was to no avail.
