Liverpool Premier Cup
Kestrel’s 9 Walkers 2
KESTRELS, though missing half a team, had little difficulty in booking their place in the next round of the Premier Cup against a valiant Walkers team from Warrington.
The game should have been over by half time such was the Kestrel dominance, but poor finishing and some fine saves from keeper Lewis kept Walkers brewing.
Mick Boyle grabbed a brace before half time with Joe Gill on target for Walkers.
The second half was a different story though and as Kestrels found their range the goals began to flow. Boyle completed his hat-trick, Terry Burghall grabbed a brace while Jones Carney McKane and Eyo notched up the score.
Carl Ledson managed a second for Walkers but far too late to have any impact on this game.
Saltbox 1 Fantail 2
Howley Grange 3 The Tail 4
Liverpool Junior Cup
Bar Du Fay 2 Altcar 0
IT TOOK a 45 yard strike from Paul Modern on 70 minutes to separate these two teams, despite the numerous efforts from both teams throughout.
Ten minutes later the game was over as MoM Neil Thorbinson slotted home number two and sent Altcar back to Southport ruing their late collapse.
A good game that produced plenty of football if not chances, superbly refereed by Mr Sims who allowed the game to flow from start to finish.
Lexton Rovers 1 Standpark 4
STANDPARK’S Aaron Moss ruined their day after being red carded for repeatedly arguing with the referee, this despite the game being already won with the ever impressive Paul Langley grabbing a brace by half time.
MoM Nathan Brown and Matt Daley netted the others with Dan Parnell getting Lexton’s consolation. Standpark will want their winning ways to continue in the league, but won’t be helped till some players learn to zip it and get on with the job in hand.
Liverpool Intermediate Cup
The Liver 3 Holborn Under 21s 1
A JOHN HUMPHRIES hat-trick secured The Liver a place into the next round of the Intermediate Cup, the pick being a spectacular scissor kick that flew into the top corner of the Holborn net. Pete Smith reduced the deficit but too late as Humphries was allowed to run free, much to the delight of their captain Peacock and his team.
Lanes End 3 Everton Red Triangle 0
ACE marksman Declan Gregson nabbed a brace to keep up his goal tally and secure a place in the draw for the next round of the cup.
Lee Gavin scored the third half way through the second half, leaving the red triangle feeling blue.
Sacred Heart 6 The Royal Oak 3
SACRED HEART felled the Royal Oak with six of the best including a hat trick from Dillon O’Callaghan who thwarted the early warnings from the Oak, this after Rick Shaw had run riot in the opening minutes with a brace and an assist for Al Corn’s goal . Tom Hayes, Lee Kenny and Rob Atkins completed the job in the second half as Heart dominated.
Civil Service 6 The Breeze 0
The Breeze showed up but failed to put the wind up the Civil Service team who caused their own storm as the brothers Purcell cleaned up. A hat trick a piece for Jay and Dave both of who sailed through this game and made the Breese defence quake every time they got possession.
Ventura 0 Platinum M/W 3
PLATINUM’S Ritchie Tipton played ace against Ventura to secure his teams place in the next draw of the cup they won last year.
He teased and taunted the Ventura defence assisted by team mate John Whelan, while keeper Bond frustrated their forwards at the other end with a string of good saves.
Database 6 Clarence 3 AET
DATABASE needed extra time to work out a way to break Clarence down after they completed the ninety minutes at two apiece.
Early goals from Mike Gilbert and Danny Hayden were cancelled out by Warren Perry and Gary Jones for Clarence and there was no sign of the late goal flurry that occurred.
Tired legs or late nights may have added to what was to come, but Database took full advantage as Gilbert grabbed his hat trick with Venial Sanizador adding a brace. Neil Towers pulled one back for Clarence all too late to make any difference to the final result though.
George’s 2 Willow 1
GEORGE’S left it late to shatter Willow’s dreams of a late winner themselves, as a Dave Meadows header from a Jay Welsh corner secured victory from this tight game. Liam Wilkinson had given George’s an early lead only for Mike Dean to even things up again ten minutes later.
Both teams probed the opposition defences but failed at the last hurdle all too easily till Meadows finally used his head.
Ormskirk League Cup
Falcon 4 Mariners 8
FOR THE second week Mariner’s came from behind to crush their opposition this time in the League cup.
Falcon took the early chances to go into a two goal lead with strikes from Luke Hanlon and Kevin Ball before Mariner’s got into gear Jason Carey grabbing a hat trick to take Mariner’s into a half time lead.
Early second half mistakes led to Falcons downfall as Lee Smith and Carl Prescott added braces in between an own goal that clipped the Falcons wings.
Glen Lamb stayed in flight though and grabbed a brace of his own for Falcon. All too late to make any change to the outcome of this match though, the damage had been done and the Mariner’s sail on.
