Kendal County roar back to form in style while Ambleside United claim tough point at Turton
Kendal County got back to winning ways on Saturday against a tough CMB side.
After a few weeks break County took time to get into their rhythm and went behind in the 30th minute through a Jim Witteringham goal.
Conceding woke County up a bit and Kendal levelled just before half time when a Stephen Knowles shot went past the keeper from 20 yards.
County came out firing in the second half and looked the team that was going on to win the game, taking the lead when Kris Clough’s volley from 25 yards fired over the keeper’s head.
Both teams had chances and the game was decided in the 80th minute when a scuffed James Williams cross was cleverly turned in by Daniel Ferguson from a tight angle, leaving the keeper standing.
Milnthorpe Corinthians difficult season continued as they were thumped 7-0 at Leyland United. Mark Woods struck four of the goals, with Kevin Houghton, Trevor Houghton and Ryam Broomhead getting the other goals.
Gsk Ulverston Rangers came from a goal down to beat Todmorden Borough in Division Two.
Oliver Wood had given Todmorden the lead but Ulverston fought back with goals from John Grimes and Jack Gardner to lift Ulverston up to 10th in the league.
In Division One Ambleside United took a good point against Turton team unbeaten at home in the league.
Turton started the match well and were creating the better chances when Josh Ford tapped in to give the home side the lead after 25 minutes.
Pressing forward Ambleside got an equaliser when Mike Barron beat the offside trap and finished with a firm shot into the corner of the net for a 1-1 halftime score.
The early exchanges in the second half again saw Turton having more chances and they took a 2-1 lead when Jordan McLaughlin scored.
But Ambleside never gave up and gained an equaliser for the second time when Rylen Knowles played a ball to Jamie Parkinson, who fired in a shot that took a deflection which the keeper was unable to hold and Ryan Close following up scored.
Dalton United were soundly defeated 4-0 against unbeaten Norcross and Warbreck. A Carl Eastwood hat-trick and a score for Danny Whittaker were enough for the home side to seal victory.
