Kirkby RAFA 3
RAFA continue to score goals with three again this week against near neighbours Fantail.
The problem is they are still leaking at the back so continue to prop up the Premiership table.
Craig Knox, Ramon McHugh and Paul King gave them some hope throughout the game, but all for nothing in the end.
A hat-trick from Michael Cummings and further goals from Ryan Stamper, Alan Wilkinson and Lee Tynan secured the points for Fantail who leaped into fourth place in the league.
Ormskirk Town 2
Ormskirk Town got back to winning ways, edging out Pavilion in this three goal thriller.
From start to finish both teams attacked with flair and only some fine defensive work from both kept down the score.
Michael Green opened the scoring for Town with a scorcher into the top corner only to see Adam Millington reply within minutes for Pavilion with a neat finish from a six man move.
Both teams entertained and went flat out for the winner that came after 80 minutes via a Robbie Knowles strike that crept in despite the efforts from Pivilion keeper John Parry.
Sacred Heart 2
Ambrose Ellis 0
Sacred Heart increased their lead at the top of Division Two following a hard fought victory against Ambrose Ellis.
All even after 45 minutes, both teams having chances which they failed to take mainly down to some neat defending and fine goalkeeping displays. Kevin Hayes broke the deadlock on the hour, and despite some all out attacking play from Ambrose Ellis that caused panic at times it was Ryan Ball that managed to seal the victory with Hearts’ second goal near the end.
Kestrels had early revenge for their only league defeat by the NAC a few weeks ago. , Terry Burghall who volleyed Kestrel’s into a half time lead which was doubled early in the second half by Joey Davies. Steve Connors made it three with a neat individual strike after beating three challenges, Paul Welsh grabbed the fourth finally after he had squandered half a dozen others and substitute Kyle Hamid slotted home the fifth with his first touch. Kestrels’ other substitute Tommy Hughes missed a bagful as NAC pressed for a consolation but by then the game was all but over.
