Published at 11:27, Thursday, 01 March 2012
Five different goal scorers helped Aspatria to a 5-2 demolition of Cockermouth and go joint top spot in the Tesco Cumberland premier division.
The division looked done and dusted earlier in the season with reigning champions Netherhall racing clear of the pack.
Aspatria had other ideas and have strung together a series of solid results to claw back the deficit.
Against Cockermouth, Steven Rudd, Malcolm Graham, Darrell Creighton, Callum Killick and Shaun Law were on target for the St Mungo’s Park side.
Ryan Carruthers scored twice for second-bottom Cockermouth.
Longtown re-wrote the record books as they beat Netherhall for the first time at Moor Road.
Captain Dan Hughes scored the vital goal as mid-table Longtown secured the win.
Wigton beat Frizington 5-0 thanks mainly to a Mike Riding hat-trick.
In Division One, it was top v bottom with rampant Silloth hitting seven past Parton.
The prolific Andy Hine scored twice with ex-Workington Reds striker Andy Hardman, who once knocked Rushden & Diamonds out of the FA Trophy, also netting a brace.
Adam Carr, Mark Glenncross and Andrew Trestianu completing the rout.
Second place Windscale beat Whitehaven Miners 4-0 to keep Silloth’s lead at the top to seven points.
They also have two games in hand on their rivals.
Warwick Wanderers beat Whitehaven 4-2 and Bransty Rangers hammered Harraby Catholic Club Youth 7-2.
Borough and Carlisle City contested a Smurfit Kappa Conway Cup second round clash with the Allerdale side running out 3-1 winners. Steven Graham, Andrew Jones and Gareth Young all scored.
