Walney put Furness Cavaliers to the sword
Last updated at 16:39, Monday, 18 February 2013
WALNEY Island beat Furness Cavaliers 3-1 in The Bay West Lancashire League Division Two to stay in third place in the table and leave Cavaliers in the bottom two.
The Seasiders’ top scorer, Jordan Brough, netted twice to move to the top of the scoring charts on 19 league goals, but man of the match was keeper George Scott who made several excellent saves.
Cavaliers started the brighter of the two sides but Scott kept them at bay and their failure to convert chances cost Cavs dear.
Brough opened the scoring after 36 minutes following hesitation in the Cavs’ defence and he doubled his tally seven minutes into the second half after a quick counter attack.
Soon after Matt Hargreaves pulled a goal back with a header from a Lee Simpson cross but Keiron Solloway made sure of the points for Walney with 20 minutes to go.
In the only other game in the division GSK Ulverston Rangers went down 3-0 at home to Ladybridge.
Barrow Wanderers bowed out of the Division Two Challenge Cup, going down 3-1 at Bolton County with Andrew Whiteford on target.
Both local Premier Division sides lost 2-0 at home. Crooklands were defeated by Blackpool Wren Rovers and Vickerstown were beaten by Tempest United.
In Division One the games involving Hawcoat Park and Millom were both postponed but Dalton United played at Stoneclough and staged a remarkable recovery to return home with all three points. Against a revitalised hosts, who are propping up the table, Dalton were 5-2 down with 75 minutes gone, but fought back to win 6-5.
Gareth Jones scored twice in the first half but Stoneclough led 3-2 at the break and went further ahead around the hour mark before goals from Danny Leech, 2, Sam Alexander and Ian Callison won it for Dalton.
Holker Old Boys managed to end their losing streak in the North West Counties Division One by holding Atherton LR to a goalless draw, but they stay bottom of the table.
Swarthmoor Social’s North Lancashire League cup tie with Boys Club was postponed for a fifth time.
In a repeat of last season’s final, Millom beat Cartmel on penalties in the Travis Perkins Furness Senior Cup to progress to the semi-finals. Last year it was their first team who won, but with the West Lancs committee denying local teams the chance to play in the competition, this season it was Millom’s reserves who played. The game at the racecourse ended in a goalless stalemate but Millom held their nerve to win 4-3 on penalties.
The Junior Cup game between Barrow Wanderers reserves and Bootle reserves at Lesh Lane was also decided by a penalty shootout with the home side going through. Wanderers won 4-2 on penalties after a 2-2 draw over 90 minutes. Callum Treen scored both for Wanderers, with Declan Evans and Matthew Lampitt scoring for Bootle.
In the Terry Clinton Memorial Trophy the game at Rakesmoor’s top pitch saw Vickerstown beat Holker Old Boys reserves 3-0. Mike Imison scored twice, the second being a beauty from long range, and Craig May scored a fine solo goal. Britannia’s match against Kirkby United was postponed.
The cup action was completed at Railway Meadow where Furness Cavaliers reserves defeated Dalton United A 4-2 in the Horne Cup with all four goals coming from Jordan Hughes. In a game excellently refereed by Bob Davies scorers for a spirited Dalton were Liam Smith and George Brown.
The only game in the Riflemans Garage Premier Division was one-sided as Hawcoat Park reserves beat Barrow Wanderers reserves 9-1. Sam Jefferson and Kev Murphy both scored hat-tricks with George Balm, Ryan Magtoto and an own goal completing the scoring. Gavin Rae scored the Wanderers consolation goal.
Barrow Island held on to top spot in Premier Tiles Division One with a 2-1 win over Walney Island reserves thanks to goals from Danny Spence and Jon O’Halloran. Mike Carr replied for Walney.
Swarthmoor Social reserves kept pace with the leaders by winning by the same score against Vickerstown A. Ben Mooney and Nathan Adams scored, with Darren Clarke netting for the third successive game for Vickerstown.
Holker Old Boys A and GSK Ulverston Rangers reserves both lost ground by losing to Askam United reserves and Millom A respectively. Askam won 4-0 with goals from Joe Braund-Smith, Lewis Turner, Steve Colquhoun and sub Jordan Rayner. Callum Allardyce scored twice for Rangers reserves but Millom A won 4-2 through goals from Josh Lindsay, Tom King, Ryan Waters and Chris O’Brien.
In Division Two Britannia reserves won the battle of the top two by beating Haverigg United reserves 2-0. It was a very close game with few chances and it took a 72nd minute free-kick from Andrew Higginson to break the deadlock. The second goal came from a poor goal-kick that fell to Phil Chesworth who rounded the Haverigg keeper and thought he had scored from 30 yards but the ball got stuck in the goalmouth and Ryan Barker followed up to smash the ball into the empty net.
Barrow Celtic reserves stay at the bottom of the table despite two more goals from the prolific Rob Johnson as they lost 3-2 to Hawcoat Park A.
lBarrow Wanderers are inviting all old and current players or management to celebrate the club’s 30th anniversary this Friday in their Lesh Lane clubhouse. Singer Bev Willis will be the evening’s entertainment and there will be a buffet provided along with the chance for everyone to reminisce with old friends.
