Furness Cavaliers off the mark against Barrow Wanderers
Last updated at 16:23, Monday, 24 September 2012
FURNESS Cavaliers finally got their first West Lancashire Division Two win of the season at the ninth attempt as they beat Barrow Wanderers 2-0 at Rampside Road.
In a tense first half, Jordan Hughes should have put Cavs ahead, but was denied by Ronnie Spiers, while Joe Murphy also missed a good chance before Wanderers came into the game.
Andrew Forristal was unlucky to see his shot hit the post and Cavs keeper Ben Sowerby pulled off a great save from a deflected effort to keep it goalless at the break.
Just after the hour-mark, Murphy curled a shot into the bottom corner to put the home side in front, but the game was not settled until three minutes from time, when Steve Morgan smashed the ball home from a corner.
There was another local derby at the Training Pitch, where Dalton United gained revenge for a 6-3 defeat in August by winning 3-0 against Furness Rovers.
Dalton had the key players at both ends of the pitch, with Gareth Jones claiming a hat-trick, although one was possibly a James McGoldrick own goal, while keeper Chris Pritchard was in superb form to keep Rovers at bay.
Both local sides who played in the Lancashire Shield because their games were postponed last week progressed into the next round. Millom performed a giant-killing act to overcome Premier Division Thornton Cleveleys 5-2 and set up a home tie with Vickerstown in two weeks’ time. Phil Edmondson was the hat-trick hero, with Carl Waters and Dan Pattinson also on target.
In an all-Premier Division tie, Crooklands Casuals needed penalties to beat Fulwood Amateurs after an enthralling game at Longlands Park, which ended 2-2 after 90 minutes.
Dave Mansergh twice put Cassies ahead, but they were pegged back on each occasion by the visitors. Mansergh then had a chance to win the game in injury time, but dragged a penalty wide, allowing debutant keeper Chris Lavery to be the hero, saving two penalties to put his team through 4-2 in the shoot-out.
In the Premier Division, Vickerstown lost 2-1 at home to Blackpool Wren Rovers in a contentious game that saw both sides have a player dismissed. Danny Cummings scored the goal but also saw red, with the visitors nicking all three points thanks to a late penalty.
There was an amazing comeback at Hawcoat Park in Division One, where the home side trailed 4-1 at half-time against Turton but drew 5-5. Mark Knowles’ side were depleted with a number of players at Colin Athersmith’s wedding and showed great character to earn a point.
It was their fourth straight league draw and came through goals from Aiden Murphy, Ryan Brown, Nick Beach, Mike Melia and Jon Paul Stanway.
In Division Two, Walney’s winning run came to an end with a bump as they lost 5-0 at Hurst Green.
Askam United failed to take advantage as they lost 2-1 to a late goal at CMB. Jordan Rayner was their scorer.
GSK Ulverston Rangers went down 2-1 at home to in-form Bolton County, with all the goals coming in the last 15 minutes. The visitors went ahead but futsal international Will Rooke scored from the penalty spot before a late goal earned Bolton their fourth straight league win.
Holker Old Boys are having trouble finding the net in the North West Counties first division, having scored just one goal in five league games. On Saturday they went down 1-0 to Leek CSOB and have yet to register a point.
Swarthmoor Social Club earned their second win of the season with a 5-2 victory over Boys Club of Lancaster. The scorers were Zach Mooney, Rikki Gallagher, Mike O’Neill, Jamie Lawson and Nathan Adams.
In the Furness Premier League, the first round of the Terry Clinton Memorial Trophy was completed, with Haverigg United going through after a 5-1 win over Dalton United reserves. Haverigg’s scorers were John Chmiel (2), Peter Bateman, Steve Robinson and Adam Banks with Dave Geldart replying for Dalton.
The three Rifleman’s Garage Premier Division games that were played were all high scoring and closely-contested affairs.
Free-scoring Bootle went down 4-3 at home to Britannia, with Reece Fretwell scoring twice and Brian Dawson also on target. Britannia’s scorers were Ian Rogers (2), Danny Keenan and Tom Dawes.
Holker Old Boys reserves went back to the top of the table with a last-minute winner to beat Kirkby United 4-3. Jack Hargreaves and Brandon Haughin both scored twice, with Steve Croasdale, Matt Bruce and Rob Fugler netting for Kirkby.
Barrow Celtic are still unbeaten, but they were held to a 3-3 draw by Barrow Wanderers reserves at Lesh Lane. Craig McIlvogue (2) and Rees scored for Wanderers, with Cameron Fawcett, Ash Daly and Dan Coates earning the point that puts Celtic second in the table.
The Horne Cup got under way with all three games ending in away victories. Swarthmoor Social reserves won 3-0 against Furness Rovers A through goals from Ben Mooney (2) and John Renton. Britannia reserves surprised Holker Old Boys A, beating them 4-0, with Ryan Barker, Simon Mickle, Chris Paton and Tyler Silver on target.
Vickerstown A were 3-0 up against Walney Island reserves through Mark Johnson, Martin Clarke and Jon Moore but Walney got it back to 3-2 with goals from Conner Carson and Liam Griffiths.
In Premier Tiles Division One, Barrow Island and GSK Ulverston Rangers reserves moved level with Swarthmoor on nine points thanks to hard-earned away wins.
Barrow Island’s scorers at Millom A were Gareth Armstrong (2), Dan O’Halloran and Smith, with Josh Lindsay getting both for Millom (see separate report above).
A late Dan Craig penalty settled the game at Duddon Road as Rangers won 4-3. Carl Brown (2) and Stuart Smith were the other scorers while Sam Dowsett (2) and Scott Dempsey netted for Askam. Furness Cavaliers were 6-0 winners over Dalton United A. Matt Hargreaves and Rob Sneesby both scored twice, with Tom Warman and Glenn Sargent also finding the net.
In Division Two, the pattern continued as incredibly not a single home side won in the 13 FPL games played.
Haverigg United reserves went top with a 3-2 win at Hawcoat Park A through Mitchell Stocks (2) and Ian Taylor.
Steve Young and Sam Jefferson replied for the home side. Barrow Celtic reserves were held 2-2 by Bootle reserves at Newby Terrace. Mark Wallace, for Celtic and Bootle’s Kevin Hartley each scored twice.
Askam United A were 5-1 winners against Walney Island A, who scored through Jon Harding. Askam’s marksmen were Jinks, 2, Wilton, 2, and Rose.
