Carlisle City 3 Ponteland 0: Carlisle City recovered from two poor results to comfortably beat their relegation-threatened opponents.
They were ahead within two minutes as Murphy’s corner was touched home at close range by Dan Bulman.
City dominated possession but had to wait until thirty seconds into the second period for another goal, as Mark Graham struck a powerful 20-yard drive past Blair. Tom Lucock added the third as he calmly finished off a move involving Kilgour and Grainger.
Harraby Catholic Club 0 Whitley Bay A 3: An under-strength Harraby side were well beaten by their North East visitors.
They lost Anderton to an injury early in the game and they struggled to create many chances.
Lee put Bay ahead in the 64th minute when he headed in a right-wing cross.
Bay keeper Hammond was hardly tested, and his side added a second after 80 minutes when Lee scored again. Harraby’s misery was complete in injury time when Bainbridge lobbed over Casson from 35 yards.
Seaton Burn 2 Northbank Carlisle 4: Northbank renewed their promotion hopes with this victory. Mark Worrall put them ahead after seven minutes but the home side levelled after 20 minutes when Northbank failed to clear a corner.
The visitors came back again and Luke Barwick gave them the lead at the break. Nicky Routledge’s fine 20-yard chip after 50 minutes put Northbank 3-1 ahead, but Worrall was then sent-off and Seaton pulled a goal back on the hour.
Northbank, who had missed an earlier penalty through Thorley, sealed the points with a spot-kick converted by Matthew Read.
