Ormskirk and District Sunday Premier Division
The Tail 10Standpark 0
THE TAIL ran riot over Standpark with a ten goal mauling to stay at the summit of the Premier Division.
Four up by the break there was little hope for Standpark and when number five went in early in the second half the game was all but over. Standpark could not break down the Tails defence or stop another five hitting their net as the Tail dominated. Goals came for Kieran Davidson with a hat trick, two apiece for Shaun King and Gary Hall and finished off by Ramon McHugh, Mike Hall and Chris Grayson.
Melling Victoria 1Salisbury 1
MELLING VICTORIA found themselves on the back foot for most of this game, and only pushed forward on the counter and after Salisbury took the lead on the hour with a great Carl Hanson strike. Their tactics were rewarded in the end though as Baccino Roberts was left clear from a corner to tap home the equaliser with minutes to spare, this keeping them in second spot while Salisbury climb to forth on goal difference.
Falcon 5Lanes End 4
FALCON narrowly hung on to pole position in the First Division with a last minute winning goal from Jack Park, in this see saw of a game.
Two up in ten minutes with goals from Luke Newcombe and Ronnie Devine, the Falcon must have thought the game was going to be an easy victory but the Lane don’t give up that easily and Dan Kelly had reduced the arrears before the break.
That was the tonic the Lane required and Tom Harborn equalised within minutes of the second half to open the game up for a classic second half.
Declan Gregson put the Lane in the lead before Kevin Hayes equalled the contest once again. Darren Thomas restored the Lanes lead only for a late penalty scored by Glen Lamb to level things again and that appeared to be it till the last kick of the game when Parks strike ensured him hero status for the day.
Coach & Horses 3Database 1
THE COACH also found themselves two up in the first ten minutes with goals from Dillon Fitzsimmons and Mark Gornall as the youngsters ran riot over a startled Database team.
But things were to change for the next hour as John Bond pulled one back, and the Database defence helped by poor finishing from the Coach held strong.
Throughout there was some good football played by both, however both were guilty of overdoing things on the ball especially MOM for Coach, Joe Campbell whose hard work and creativity lacked the killer pass that was often available to him.
Luke Roberts did manage a third for the Coach near the end of this game as Database ran out of steam, however on this showing the future looks brighter for the Coaches youngsters.
Ambrose Ellis 1Sacred Heart 5
AMBROSE ELLIS lost this game in the first half as Sacred Heart kept their promotion hopes alive with MOM Joe Edwards and Steve Metcalf banging home a pair of braces.
Ellis just could not get started till the damage was done and by then the score was well beyond them. Will King pulled one back and Ellis hung on till the dying minutes when Carl Ryan crashed home number five leaving Ellis wondering how they had such a nightmare of a first half.
MCA 3The Liver 2
MCA keep up with the promotion pack having the better of a five goal thriller against the Liver in this close encounter.
Danny Jones and Dave Roach gave the MCA a first half lead spurred on by their mom Mike Cox with the Liver’s Dave Purcell reducing the arrears.
Michael Gambit levelled the contest with a stunning strike on the hour, before both teams went end to end in search of a winner. That honour went to Robbie Haste keeping the MCA in forth position as Christmas approaches.
