Dynamos hit rock bottom

Share this article

In the Premier Division, Ingleton had a comfortable 2-0 win over CCM Dynamos who appeared to be half hearted in their approach to the game.

After Jonathan Boadle and Paul Bruce had given Ingleton a 2-0 lead, CCM rallied briefly, creating two half chances which were spurned but up to Ingleton taking a 25th minute lead, CCM hardly got out of their own half and up to Ingleton's second goal after 75 minutes the lethargic Dynamos side never had a shot on goal.

Manager Mick Davey said his team has never played as bad.

Boys Club just couldn't contain a lively Storeys side who still lead the division by five points. Boys Club never gave up but couldn't stop Carl Harwood opening the scoring, John Hargreaves scoring the second and the third was scored from the penalty spot by Nicky Pinnington.

The goal of the game was scored by Boys Club Graham Lee.

Kirkby Lonsdale and Marsh United shared four goals in a thrilling 2-2 draw. The Marsh side containing a mix of youth and experience opened the scoring with a Lee Sparks goal of real quality. Kirkby Lonsdale hit back with a Scott Kirk goal.

The game continued to flow from end to end before veteran Steve Rigby put the exciting Marsh United side back into the lead.

Kirkby Lonsdale continued to push forward, looking for the equaliser which eventually came when Jaffa Bojang slipped his marker and calmly put the ball into the back of the Marsh United net.

Arnside were unlucky not to gain at least one point when they took on Morecambe Royals, who are just two places above them. Arnside had the best chances but succumbed to a John Ireland goal giving a disappointing Morecambe Royals only their third win while Arnside are still looking for their first.

Power Station played well against a young Cartmel side and took the lead with a Tony Morgan goal. Cartmel rallied and took the lead with goals from Ben Clarke and John Cassidy. Power Station went on all-out attack but were comfortably held by a strong Cartmel defence.

In the 90th minute Power Station thought they had saved the game when Liam Steel scored from the penalty spot.

But straight from the kick-off and while Power Station were still celebrating, Cartmel went through the Power Station like a knife through butter for Joel Drinkall to score Cartmel's winner with the last kick of the game.

The match of the day was between Squires and last season's champions, Slyne- with-Hest. Both defences were well on top in the early stages.

The first chance fell to Squires in the 20th minute, bringing out an excellent save from the Slyne keeper who palmed the ball away.

In the 24th minute Slyne won a corner on their left, which was headed into the net by Stuart Phillips.

Slyne were now slightly the better team and Andy Goulding almost doubled their lead in the 40th minute but for a brilliant, outstanding save from the Squires keeper.

Tragedy struck Squires as straight from the re-start Slyne doubled their lead.

Slyne re-started the second half with a short pass to Andy Goulding who, from the halfway line, shot for goal which was inch perfect as the ball dipped just under the bar to score a remarkable goal.

This visibly stunned the Squires side and Slyne were now on top and started playing some superb football.

In the 70th minute Slyne's Stuart Phillips made the game safe as he volleyed a superb pass into the goal.

Squires, after going 3-0 behind, started playing with a bit of passion and their passing game improved, the result was a good goal through Paul Gribbin.

Squires kept up the pressure and were rewarded with a Peter Sharpe goal.

Slyne reacted to these setbacks in superb style with Andy Goulding scored again to complete his hat-trick in the 80th minute to put his side into a 4-2 lead.

Steve Miller rounded off the scoring in the 84th minute with a good solo effort.

In Division One, leaders Caton United slipped to second place after losing for the second time to a youthful Storeys Reserves side by 2-0.

Caton had no answer to the Storeys centre-forward Stuart Morgans who created havoc every time he had the ball. He put the game beyond Caton United when he scored both his side's goals.

Westgate Wanderers joined Caton United on goal difference but they could only manage a single point in their 2-2 draw with Allithwaite Rangers.

Allithwaite opened up a 2-0 half time lead only for the diminutive Stuart Gordon to pull the game round, scoring both his side's goals to cancel out Richie Bevin's and Craig Turner's for Allithwaite.

Morecambe Royals Reserves, in third place, became Marsh United Reserves' first victims of the season. The Royals had the better of the first half and led 1-0 at half-time.

Marsh improved in the second half and played their best football of the season in a half-hour spell which won them the game with goals from Jason Barlow, captain Paul Scott and Craig Jackson.

Vine played really well to beat Burton Thistle 3-0. Vine played as well as they have done all season and fully deserved the win with excellent goals from Frank Heath, Simon Ball, the club's leading scorer, and Daniel Glassow.

Vine remain in fourth, just behind the leaders.

Torrisholme are mounting a promotion challenge as they moved into fifth place, jumping five places after their comfortable 4-1 demolition of Freehold who have slumped to a relegation place.

Paul Dewhurst scored for Freehold who had no answer to the brilliant Dave Horay who scored a hat-trick, including a penalty, Craig Holme adding the other.

Ingleton Reserves won only their second game of the season when they beat Millhead 3-2 in a very good game. Russell Stubbs opened the scoring for Millhead who had dominated the game for the first 30 minutes.

In the 31st minute Jamie Nichols made it 2-0 and Millhead appeared to be coasting to an easy win as Ingleton were not in the game.

Just before half-time, Ingleton had a slice of luck which Chris Jackson capitalised on to reduce the arrears to 2-1.

Ingleton started the second half in a different frame of mind and soon made in roads into the Millhead defence which brought them further goals from Michael Russell and Chris Jackson, his second of the game.

In Division Two, Highgrove moved into second place behind inactive Bentham after thrashing Westgate Rangers 7-1.

The first half was quite even but the second half belonged to Highgrove who scored with goals from Jordan Jackson, Luke Ogley (2), Russell Mitchell, Gareth Green and Lee Brain (2).

Westgate Rangers' only reply was from Paul Samuels.

Bolton-le-Sands found bottom club Grange easy as they romped top a 6-2 win. Grange never looked as though they could cause an upset.

After Matthew Preston opened the scoring, Bolton-le-Sands never looked back, further goals being scored by Robert Powell - a good individual hat-trick - and two from Chris Dennison.

Grange replied with their best player on the day, Dave Robinson and a Matty Holmes own goal.

Halton Rangers had a field day against Carnforth Rangers, rattling in ten goals without reply from Jonathan Pink (2), Adam Lund (2), Danny Thompson (2), Graham Kemp (2), Steve Hay and an own goal.

In the Accrington Trophy Centre/Parkinson/Collegian Cup First Round, AXA/RAC found themselves trailing at half time by 2-0 to Fylde FC. AXA/RAC were every bit as good as the Fylde side but couldn't break down Fylde's solid defence. Even 'goal-a-game' Scott Simmons couldn't make any impact on the game.

The second half was entirely different after AXA/RAC re-organised their team.

This brought more attacking options which the ever alert Simmons latched onto and scored for the 12th consecutive time to bring the score to 2-1 after Fylde had scored through Stu Meney and Nick Porter.

AXA/RAC were now the better team and got the equaliser when they were awarded a penalty which Scott Simmons dispatched with ease.

This sent the tie into extra-time which saw AXA/RAC lose the sparkle they had in the second half and conceded three sloppy goals to Jamie Parker (2) and Mark Corr.

Fylde will now meet Swarthmoor Reserves.

In Division Three, Cumberland Hoops stay on top after beating Highgrove Reserves in a hard struggle. Cumberland Hoops had to thank Rob Goldsborough for his excellent hat-trick.

Highgrove couldn't contain the lively Goldsborough and deserved his hat-trick, Steve Griffiths scoring the other.

Highgrove played well but couldn't create enough chances as they met a solid defence on the day. Gary Pugh and Kevin Drago took full advantage of the chances created and scored.

Sands Athletic, in second place, appeared to be heading for an easy win as they led 2-0 at half-time with both goals from John Cardo.

The second half was a different story as Holme Athletic Reserves raised their game and went at their opponents with renewed vigour.

Lee Waddington gave Holme hope when he scored a great solo goal.

Holme were denied an equaliser they just about deserved by some desperate Sands Athletic defending and some woeful finishing.

Torrisholme Reserves moved up to sixth after beating Boys Club Reserves 6-1. Torrisholme played some attractive attacking football ably led by Kevin Gaskell who scored a superb hat-trick.

Gary Hindson, Stuart Smith and Alberto Zambianchi scored the others. Sean Grant scored the Boys Club Reserves goal.

Galgate Reserves and Allithwaite Reserves shared the points when they drew 1-1. Both sides had chances but generally the defences were on top. John Walling scoring for Galgate Reserves and Peter Moorby for Allithwaite Reserves.
