Momentum still with Rockleaze
ROCKLEAZE Rangers and Bristol Academy could both have a part to play in the David Wilson Homes Gloucestershire County League title race after starting 2013 with victories.
Although the two sides are, respectively, fifth and sixth in the table, they both have games in hand on the sides above them.
Rockleaze maintained their charge with a 2-1 success at Yate Town Reserves, Callum Oakenfold scoring a late winner after Jack Rivers' opener was cancelled out by the hosts' Jack Parker.
The game followed an identical pattern at Kingswood, where Academy's Ibrahima Diallo scored the vital goal in a 2-1 win.

Jake Jackson had opened the scoring from the penalty spot for the Academy, but Simon Clarke replied with a spot-kick for Kingswood before Diallo struck.
Tuffley have a five-point cushion at the top of the table following a 2-0 home triumph over Henbury, with Shane Bradley and Nathan King the men on target for the Gloucester side.
Southmead's early-season promise continued to ebb away as they were thumped 4-1 at Chipping Sodbury, where Justin Cattle gave the hosts an early lead.
Although Mark Totterdell's second goal for Sodbury was quickly negated by Dave Hewitt's strike for Southmead, goals from Alex Fox and Cattle, again, secured the points for the home side.
Bottom-of-the-table Berkeley's season went from bad to worse as Ellwood handed them an 8-0 thrashing in the Forest of Dean.
Matt Addis scored twice, while Jamie Addis, Julian Addis, Jamie Powell, Ben Schiller, Lee Scotford and Gary Wildin all added to the Hunters' misery.
Hanham let slip a two-goal advantage as they drew 2-2 at home to Taverners, with Josh Jones and Tom Hanley saving a point after Shaun Morris and Craig Stone had put the hosts in charge.
Thornbury and Frampton drew 1-1, with Frazer Wilson giving the visitors the lead and Brad Andrews netting the equaliser.
It also finished 1-1 at Bishop's Cleeve Reserves, where Declan Chick scored a late leveller for the hosts after Jerome Millard had given DRG Frenchay the lead on the hour mark.
Patchway moved into the semi-finals of the Les James League Cup with a 2-1 home victory over Longlevens.
Brandon Benjamin gave the hosts the advantage inside the first 60 seconds. Lee Blackmore equalised, but Ashley Lloyd sent the Bristol side through.
