8:48am Monday 30th September 2013 in Sport
JB Parker Cup: Eagle Sports began their defence of the JB Parker Cup with a 3-1 victory away against a spirited Denton Town side.
Eagle took the lead after 15 minutes when Ged McAllister finished confidently after being put through by Liam Walker.
McAllister added his second on the half hour mark when he slotted home Stuart Bruce's pass. Denton Town pulled a goal back with an excellent strike fifteen minutes into the second half but soon after, Mike Hickman settled the tie, bursting through two challenges to finish well from a tight angle.
Garswood United sailed comfortably through to the next round as they beat Rudheath Social 3-0, while Whaley Bridge won 2-1 away at Styal to secure their place in the draw for the second round.
Linotype CHN had a tough battle on their hands as they entertained Billinge and with the score level at 1-1 after 90 minutes the game went into extra time.
The fixture remained a tight affair but Linotype forced their way into the next round as they finished 3-2 winners.
Greenalls entertained Crewe who came into the game in fine form after three consecutive wins, including victories over first and second placed teams in the league.
Greenalls started the game brightly with Rob Hanley missing an early chance when one on one with the keeper and Craig Hoyland striking the Crewe cross bar directly from a free kick. Hanley made up for his earlier miss when a Danny Topping free kick from deep on the right hand side was headed back across goal by Neil Sutch and Hanley was on hand to thrash home from eight yards out mid way through the first half.
Crewe were frustrated as Greenalls pressed well all over the pitch and another surge down the left saw Lee Vaughan looking dangerous in the area, but his flick was handled as he looked to shoot. Hoyland smashed the spot kick high past Wes Newton in the Crewe goal to make it 2-0.
Crewe started to find a foothold on the game and should have halved the deficit with their first real chance, as Pearson got clear of Johns and pulled the ball back to Southern who, with the goal at his mercy, forced his shot high and wide.
After a defence splitting pass from Rogers, Paul Benns ran at the full back and when well placed at the by line, pulled the ball back for the on rushing Topping to lash into the top corner with his left foot.
However, Crewe found form again, which saw them get back into the game. The confident looking Brehaut at the back for Crewe was allowed to move forward and when 20 yards out, unleashed a great strike that whistled past Kiernan and made it 3-1.
With 21 minutes left, Crewe gave away an indirect free kick after the keeper picked up a back pass and Hughes played it to Hoyland who again struck the bar for Greenalls.
A neat one two saw Southern found himself well placed in the Greenalls area and he made no mistake as he sent the ball high and past Kiernan into the top corner for 3-2. Greenalls secured the win in stoppage time as the restless Hanley forced an error from the defender on the edge of the Crewe box and curled a lovely shot into the top left corner.
Two goals from each side saw Barnton and Pilkington head into extra time in their cup tie but a strong performance from Barnton saw them finish 5-2 winners with extra time goals from Billy Webb, Colin Quirk and Ryan Malone.
Gamesley and Knutsford were also level at full time leading to an entertaining period of extra time, which saw Knutsford finish 4-3 winners.
Division Two; The only mid week tie saw Penlake travel to Warrington Town Reserves but a strong performance from the home side saw them finish 5-2 winners, thanks to goals from Phil Mooney (2) Connor Millington and Dylan Glass (2).
Lostock Gralam bounced back from last weeks defeat with a 2-1 win over Penlake, despite going into the break 1-0 to an Alex Griesdale strike.
Division Two Cup: A goal late into injury time from Pete Mather saw Daten sneak a 1-0 win at home against Egerton, while Congleton Vale continued their run of form with a 4-2 win away at Warrington Town Reserves.
Grappenhall Sports started their fixture at Tarporley Victoria brightly and after missing a few early chances, went 1-0 up when Luke Arnold to slotted home a penalty after Joe Sandbach was brought down in the box. Soon after, Tarporley were awarded a penalty of their own Gareth Powell saved well.
Grappenhall doubled their lead when Matt Ball squared for Sam Shaw to tap in and make it 2-0 before the break.
Tarporley regrouped at half time and within ten minutes of the restart had made it 2-1, only for Grappenhall substitute Danny Sisson to slot home a rebound at the other end, to restore the two goal advantage.
After 80 minutes, Tarporley responded again making it 3-2 but the Grappenhall nerves were settled moments later when a superb free kick from Adam Rosterne allowed David France to nod a sweet header into the corner.
In the final moments, Danny Sisson got his second and Grappenhall's fifth after slotting home another rebound.
Alex Dunne and Jamie Williams got Moore United off to a good start as they both scored in the first half to give them a good foothold in the game at Sale Town. Dunne made it 3-0 minutes after the restart, before Jonathon Rudge added a 4th in the 53rd minute. Nathan Clements completed the scoring in the 87th minute to secure a comfortable victory for Moore.
Malpas started their league cup challenge against unbeaten Poynton. The game started at a high pace with both sides playing some quality football as they looked for an early break through. The first goal came in the 21st minute when a kick from keeper Conner Tinsley was flicked on by Owen Ward and found Alex Hughes who chipped it over the advancing keeper for 1-0.
Poynton pushed to get back in the game and got a deserved equaliser when a clear penalty was awarded, which Rick Tindall slotted home on 40 minutes, despite Tinsley getting a hand to it.
The second half started again at a fast pace and Poynton got an important break through when a free kick was awarded directly in front of goal.
Andy Simpson made no mistake and drove it into the top left corner in the 51st minute. A good move down the right started by Lee Parry saw Alex Hughes play the ball through for Mike Gibbs only for a great clearance by a defender on the line.
Malpas got their equaliser with five minutes left on the clock when the same three linked up again, resulting with Mike Gibbs charging into the box and slotting into the bottom corner of the net to take the game into extra time.
Malpas were reduced to ten men and were forced to re-group but their presence on the pitch made it difficult to see that they had a player disadvantage. The only real chance came when the Poynton keeper saved well from Alex Hughes only for Mike Gibbs following up to hit the post.
As both sides looked to get ready for penalties, a free kick from keeper Tinsley found the head of Steve Watkins who headed the winner into the top corner of the net to steal the win for Malpas.
Goals from Dave Collard and Gary Shannon helped Golborne Sports to a 2-0 home win over Egerton in the remaining cup fixture.
Reserve Division: Whaley Bridge were in fine form as they stormed to a 7-1 win over Linotype CHN which saw them leap-frog their opponents into second place. Tom Wildgoose opened the scoring in the 20th minute which was closely followed by a goal from Brad Hodgson.
Linotype pulled one back just minutes after the restart but Whaley restored their two goal advantage soon after when Wildgoose hit home from the spot after Tom Scorer was fouled in the area. Hodgson made it 4-1 on the hour mark, with Sam Hollister adding a fifth five minutes later. Kieran Shuker added his name to the score sheet in the 70th minute and Scorer finished off the scoring with ten minutes remaining after being heavily involved with the previous five goals.
Greenalls remain at the top of the table by five clear points after their 8-0 demolition of Denton Town. Ben McWilliams scored three times to take his seasons tally to 15 goals in 13 games. The other scorers were Ellis Houghton x2, Mike Evans and Gordon McJannet. Greenalls' run of form has seen them win seven games in a row, scoring thirty goals in their last five games!
Middlewich Town climbed further up the table as goals from Matthew Cann and Jamie Collins helped them to a 2-0 win at home against Eagle Sports, while Billinge moved up to fourth with a 5-2 win against Gamesley.
Styal sit in fifth following a 5-0 win away at Egerton, while Grappenhall Sports drew 2-2 at home against Daten where Charlie Elwell and Sam Stanier scored for Daten.

Garswood United fought back second half and scored twice but were unable to steal a late point.
