Last updated at 13:07, Wednesday, 07 March 2012
Harraby Catholic sailed into the County Cup semi-finals following their 3-0 win over West Cumberland visitors Northside despite having a player sent off after 20 minutes when 2-0 up.
Their marksmen were Mark McKenzie, Brett Swift and Guiseppe Amato. Waterlogged pitches caused the postponement of Moorhouse’s home tie with Green Bank and Spinners’ visit to Dearham.
Five other games were victims of overnight rain while Great Corby, still struggling for players, called off their League Cup tie against Howard Rangers then resigned from the league.
In the other ties Rikki Lea James and Jamie Lee Hull grabbed three apiece for Pippins who knocked out Longtown 6-3.
Jamie Sharpe, Ross Martin and Gregg Manson replied for the losers.
Beehive were left with a mountain to climb when keeper Craig Jefferson was shown the red card early on and Brampton eventually emerged 5-0 victors, thanks to Martyn Coward’s brace – including a penalty – John Chapman, Elliot Bell and Steve Armstrong.
Carlisle City Sunday league fourth division BSW Timber travelled to Second Division high-fliers Parkland and and wasted several chances their only reward being Daniel Jeffrey’s well taken effort while Parkland produced a lesson in finishing to go through 5-1.
In the Premier Division Greyhound saw their four-match unbeaten run come to an end at DHCC, who were 3-0 winners through Lee Otway, Andy Sanko and Andy Sherrard.
In a Second Division encounter Walkabout could only muster 10 players and were duly crushed 9-2 by Upperby Park, whose Joel Vilchez hit three, helped by John Reay, Tom Lucock, Mark Graham, Dale Dicker, Danny Black and Jordan Cowley. Chris Kelleher and Karl Dickinson were on target for Walkabout.
In the only Third Division game to beat the weather St Aidans sank UMI Exiles 3-2 with strikes by Dean Tingey, Ben Tingey and Stuart Dawson. James Phillips and George Armstrong netted for Exiles.
In the Fourth Division Chris Hewison (2), Yazz Smajic (2), Jack Oliver and Dale Kincleaves helped Unisun Athletic “B” to a comfortable 6-3 success over Border Reiver, who countered through Chris James (2) and Steve Wiles. Dalston Old Boys just edged past Botcherby 3-2, with efforts by Andy Rogerson (2) and Richard Penny. Rob Edmondson and Paul Neaves scored for Botcherby.
The same scoreline favoured Pirelli at home to Club Victoria. Jack Patterson opened the scoring for Pirelli with his 30th goal of the season and Taylor Bushby doubled the score with a fine volley from the edge of the area. David Steele pulled one back but Tom Reay responded with a 25-yard free-kick into the top corner of the net before George Lloyd replied to make it 3-2.
Upperby FC, after losing several players over the past few weeks, fielded a new-look side for their encounter with Carlisle Spartans and went ahead through Dave Alexander. Simon Young’s excellent finish squared matters at the break. Berkley Topal struck again for Spartans only for Luke Carruthers to complete a good move and level the score. Topal put Spartans back in front then Upperby’s Alan Maxfield scored the goal of the match picking the ball up three yards inside Spartans’ half and shaking off three defenders to make it 3-3. But Topal completed his hat-trick and Young grabbed a last minute goal to earn Spartans a 5-3 win.
