THE North Lancashire Football League was back in action after a near-washout the week before.

Premier Division leaders Caton United’s cup tie with Ingleton in the Eric Wilson Senior Challenge Cup 2nd Round finally took place at the sixth attempt.

The game got off to a flying start when Ingleton went into a 2-0 lead with well worked goals from Joe Towers and Dan Tyrer.

Caton reduced the deficit with a Liam Moffatt shot and then went on the offensive to take a 6-2 lead after Joe Bouskill (2), Liam Jeffries and Tom Lund scored.

In the last couple of minutes Ingleton scored a third from a penalty by Alex Hartley. Caton will travel to Cartmel and District in the next round.

Cartmel and District moved into the semi-final of the Westmorland County Football Association Senior Cup after beating Unison. Adam Harding (4) Matthew Burrows, Carl Airey, Steven Porter (2) and Joel Drinkall scored the goals.

In the Premier Division, Carnforth Rangers moved up to second placed after a comfortable 3-0 win over a struggling Bowerham side. Bowerham are finding the going tough just now, despite playing good football they are not getting the results they desperately need to avoid relegation. Carnforth on the other hand keep on winning and with Cameron Holmes they had the match winner as the Bowerham defence was powerless to stop him completing an excellent hattrick.

Bentham started their game in a bright and confident mood and for the opening 15 minutes against Galgate were much the better side. But a lapse of concentration again cost them dear as they conceded two goals within minutes during their 4-2 defeat to leave them rooted at the bottom.
