BAD weather once again took its toll of Tesco Cumberland fixtures but the games that survived produced a rich haul of goals.
None more than the Smurfitt Kappa Conway round one tie between Mirehouse and St Bees Reserve which Mirehouse won 17-0.
There was a double hat-trick for Alan Sim while Matt Sibble hit four and Jordan Priestley three. Further Mirehouse goals came from Ryan Smith (2), Ross Leeson and Nathan Dryden.
Warwick Wanderers entertained Netherhall but couldn’t hold the in-form Maryport side who won 3-1 – the game played in good spirit despite a very heavy pitch.
On target for Netherhall were Keith Andrews, Andrew Laws and Karl Fillingham scored for Netherhall with Ollie Driver getting the consolation goal for the home team.
Wigton Harriers won by the odd goal over visiting Carlisle City. Ian Johnston and Andy Hill scored for the Harriers with Dan Gawith getting City’s goal.
In the preliminary round of Smurfitt Kappa Conway Cup Cleator Moor Celtic edge a close fought game at Workington Red Star 3-2.
Dominic Scott and Jamie Bramley score for Red Star while Luke Close (2) and Robert Fowler replied for Celtic.
There was also action in the JJ Club Whitehaven Cup round one when Aspatria and Wigton Athletic hastily arranged their tie after Aspatria’s league game was called off.
Aspatria gave up home advantage and travelled to Wigton but still managed to win, 4-2.
Aspatria’s goals came from Malcolm Graham (2), Richard Hudson and Matt Tyler with David Charters and Geoff Bennett scoring for Athletic.
In the league there was only one premiership game – Silloth leapfrogging Workington Red House into third with an emphatic 5-0 victory.
There were two goals each for Andy Hinde and Andy Hardman while Mark Glencross scored one.
In division one Cockermouth pull clear of the bottom three with a 6-1 win over newcomers Windscale Reserves.
