The coronavirus pandemic didn’t stop The James Cropper Westmorland League while the County Cup semi-finals were also played on what turned out to be a good afternoon of action.

With the semi-finals being the main attraction, both Kendal County and Milnthorpe avoided potential cup upsets after they progressed into the final which will be held at Kendal Town’s ground once action is cleared to resume.

Kendal County, who won the competition last season, made the short trip to play Westmorland League Division Two side Burneside at Hollins Lane.

West Lancashire League Division One side Kendal County avoided the upset after they picked up an emphatic 5-1 win.

Bailey Carlos scored a hat-trick while goals from Connor Walmsley and George Key rounded off an impressive display.

In the other semi-final Milnthorpe Corinthians claimed a dominant 5-1 win at Appleby as James Marshall’s team avoided what had the potential to be a very difficult game.

Corinthians dominated from the start and opened the scoring on 24 minutes after Peter Baxendale cut inside from the left before firing the ball into the corner.

And Milnthorpe made it 2-0 four minutes before half time following a volley by Andy Todd which left the keeper stranded.

Milnthorpe continued to dominate in the second half with goals from Elliott Bousfield, Simon Wearing and Steven Yawson.

Windermere moved a point clear at the top of Division One following a dramatic 4-3 win against Penrith Reserves, while Andrew Frampton’s brace and a goal by Steve Hindmarch saw Keswick win 3-0 at Shap.

In the High Sheriff’s Cup, Sedbergh and Dent United progressed into the semi-finals after Liam Mason’s goal in extra time saw them defeat a resilient Endmoor KGR Team 1-0 in a game which was played at Dent.

In the Mason and Freeman Cup, Greystoke eased into the next round following a shock 4-1 win at Keswick Reserves, while in the Peter Daws Memorial Shield, Eden Thistle routed Eden United 9-0.

And one game was played in the James Cropper Westmorland League Division Three as Braithwaite won 4-0 at Ullswater United.
