Rangers up to fifth as Ingleton and Caton feel the wrath of heavy defeats
CARNFORTH Rangers moved up to fifth in the North Lancashire Premier Division after a 4-0 win over struggling Ingleton.
Carnforth always had the upper-hand and goals for Rikki Ball (two), Damien Murphy and Dan Syson were enough for Rangers to secure victory.
Bowerham ran out 6-1 victors over Caton United for the second time this season thanks to goals from Robin Dalgliesh, Tim Dalgliesh, Johnny Dalgliesh, Nick Turner, Joe Bouskill and Tom Spencely, who all cancelled out Steve Oliver’s strike for Caton.
Cartmel’s up-and-down season took a turn for the better when they entertained Marsh United in a game that had some excellent football and total commitment by both sides. Cartmel had the edge in possession and used it well to score three times without reply through Andrew Lord, Graham Rhodes and the goal of game by William Anderton.
The win moves Cartmel clear in second place from Morecambe Royals.
In Division One joint-second placed team Bolton-le-Sands came unstuck at leaders Trimpell.
First half goals for Mark Pike and Jack Lawson gave Trimpell a 2-0 lead at the break.
The opening 20 minutes of the second half belonged to Sands as they tried to get back into the game but the Trimpell defence stood firm.
Gradually the home side got back into the game and made it 3-0 when Jamie McMeekin struck a well-taken goal which left the keeper stranded.
Bolton Le Sands heads dropped after this and they conceded two more goals to McMeeking and Tony Turner to make it 5-0 at full time.
