Four-some Cartmel steer clear of shock while Ingleton continue cup run
CARTMEL and District avoided a banana skin in the third round of the Black Dragon Senior Challenge Cup with a 4-1 win over fourth division CC Wanderers.
A Joel Drinkall hat-trick and a goal from Matthew Burrows sealed the win for the Furness side.
In the 848-848 Taxis/Sam Price Memorial Cup second round Premier Division bottom club Ingleton pulled off another cup shock when they beat Highgrove 3-2 after extra time.
The game was a classic after David Easterby and Edward Reed scored for Ingleton and James Fielding and Jamie Lothian netted for Highgrove.
Extra time was just as thrilling after Ingleton went into a 3-2 lead through Mark Dobson.
In the Premier Division leaders Tic Dyn/Overton/Middleton just did enough to beat a depleted College AFC side missing six of their regular first team members.
The two goals by the Dynamos side were scored by Paul Turner and Dave Sorrell to extend the lead at the top to a massive 13 points.
Caton United controlled most of the game against Arnside, with full back and captain Dave Wood leading by example when he scored twice. Nathan Jackson added a third to kill off the Arnside challenge which leaves them struggling next to bottom and staring relegation in the face. Even an excellent goal scored by James Thornton could not inspire them.
Carnforth Rangers scraped a 2-2 draw against lowly Bentham.
The Yorkshire side took a deserved lead when Sam Lister scored but Byron Nixon and Danny Syson reversed fortunes as Carnforth went 2-1 up.
With time running out it looked as though Carnforth might just hang on, but Bentham threw everything at Carnforth and equalised with a fine goal by Adam Wilcock.
In the Holdens Solicitors/Gibson Cup first round Swarthmoor Social Club lost 2-1 to Boys Club with 30 seconds of extra time remaining, while in the second round, Bolton-le-Sands overcame Heysham 4-3.
In Division One Kirkby Lonsdale eased their relegation problems with an emphatic 4-0 win over bottom team Marsh United Reserves.
