Ambleside off to a flyer but opponents strike it Rich
A GOOD start was not enough for Ambleside United as fourth-placed Burscough Richmond came from behind to beat the Cumbrians 2-1 in Division One.
A superb Tom Routledge free kick from 25 yards gave Ambleside the lead after 20 minutes and was just reward for a good Ambleside showing in the first half.
Ambleside had their chances but couldn’t capitalise and they paid the price when Lee McNab equalised on the stroke of half time for Burscough.
McNab secured his brace 10 minutes after the interval when he slotted his shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
Although Ambleside pushed, they were unable to fashion a leveller and were forced to accept a 2-1 loss.
A second half hat-trick from Gareth Jones helped Dalton United to a 4-0 win over Stoneclough which lifts them above Ambleside into eighth.
Sam Alexandra scored the other Dalton goal in the 29th minute.
A last-minute penalty by Jordan Rayner gave Askam United all three points in their Furness derby win over Gsk Ulverston Rangers in Division Two.
It was 2-2 before the 90th minute drama, with Ulverston scoring through Carl Brown and Daniel Craig and Askam hitting the net thanks to Kevin Edwards and Brown.
Goals from Ladybridge’s Richard Lewis, Liam Boswell and Jordan Hussey were enough to put Kendal County to the sword as County prepared for their Westmorland Senior Challenge Cup semi-final with town rivals United with a 3-2 defeat.
Bottom club Milnthorpe Corinthians were comfortably beaten 5-0 at home to Hurst Green. A hat-trick from Chris Scott, an own goal and a strike by Danny Walker were enough to defeat Milnthorpe, who are four points adrift of Furness Cavaliers.
