Cribbs put seven goals past poor Warminster
JUST one match survived the bad weather in the entire Toolstation Western League programme on Satuurday.
It came in Bristol, where Cribbs Friends Life hosted Warminster in the First Division.
The home side's reward for staging the game was a 7-1 victory, in which Jack Kinnerley and Kris Reuben both scored twice.
Andy Forward got the ball rolling for Cribbs with a 12th-minute opener, following up after Matt Shaughnessy's drive had been parried by the goalkeeper.

Seven minutes later, Kinnerley left a host of defenders trailing in his wake before doubling the home side's advantage.
The third goal arrived ten minutes before half-time, Warminster's Ashley Wayne turning the ball into his own net from Jordan Yeo's free-kick.
Four minutes later, Yeo got on the scoresheet as he netted from Dominic Graffagnino's through ball.
Kinnerley's superb chip put Cribbs five goals ahead at the start of the second half, but the visitors managed to prevent further damage until the closing minutes.
Just six minutes remained when Yeo crossed for Reuben to head his side's sixth goal of the afternoon to spark a lively finish.
Almost immediately, Wayne claimed Warminster's consolation goal from the penalty spot, but Cribbs hit back instantly with Reuben heading in another Yeo cross.
The rest of the fixture list was completely obliterated – with every remaining match in the First Division and all games in the Premier Division called off.
With over a third of the season played, Brislington lead the Premier Division with 34 points from 16 matches, although boss Jeff Meacham knows a big challenge lies ahead.
Considering his side's title chances, Meacham said: "The league is getting tighter. There are no easy games and there are about eight teams that could win the championship."
The main challengers are Cadbury Heath, who trail Brislington by just one point with two games in hand, while Hallen are a further four points back in third having played 15 games.
In the First Division, Chard lead the way with 36 points from 18 matches, although Hengrove Athleticseem better placed – one point behind with three games in hand.
Calne are third with 33 points from 18 matches, while Shepton Mallet, Cribbs Friend Life and Corsham could all conceivably go top if they win their games in hand.
The FA Vase second-round replay between Longwell Green and Larkhall Athletic was postponed for a second time on Saturday and has been rescheduled for tomorrow.
Should the weather again frustrate the clubs, the tie will then be re-arranged for Saturday, with Hellenic League side Kidlington visiting the winners in the next round.
