Wirral Sunday League: Williams comes to the rescue
COMETH the hour, cometh the man - and at the weekend it was Wirral Sunday League's leading marksman from last season Kyle Williams who came to Towers' rescue in his side's hour of need.
Trailing 2-1 at half-time in an entertaining Cheshire County FA Sunday Amateur Cup second-round clash with Houlihans, Williams did what he does best and his opportunist hat-trick helped Towers turn a 2-1 deficit into a 6-2 victory.
Further efforts from beanpole striker Mike Neish (2) and Dave Favager, completed the total.
Premier Division leaders Neston Nomads were also in celebratory mood after they lowered the flag of Stockport Dynamoes with Richie Foulkes (2), Ashley Forbes and Dean Jones on the mark in Sunday's 4-0 triumph.
Not to be outdone, Division One leaders Bebington made it a hat-trick of WSL successes, after a screamer from Bradley Brady and a last-minute tap-in from Stuey Hardman clinched a 2-0 result at Real Reform.
In the Pyke Cup first round, Premier outfit Kent FC, were given a white knuckle experience by Division One minnows Bromborough Social before a three-goal blast from Paul Davies inspired Steve English's side to a 4-3 win in extra time.
Unbeaten Division One title challengers Higher Bebington RBL safeguarded their 100% record in second place and moved to within three points of the leaders after a solitary effort from Aaron Doyle anchored them to a 1-0 victory at third-placed Primrose Liscard.
Stefan Gajewfki and Alan Hughes gave MSC Eastham a 2-0 lead against Wallasey Athletic and although Joe Hardy added a third, it was the visitors who profited when replies from Jay Little (2) John Berry and Kevin Winders sealed a 4-3 fight back.
Division Two leaders Champions Bar spurned the chance to consolidate their position at the top after they were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Star Ozzys. Ben Percival netted for the hosts with Ross Quayle in reply for Ozzys.
That result enabled Gladstone Athletic to whittle the leaders' advantage to a single point after two-goal Steve McGuiness and Neil Leyfield delivered in a 3-0 decision over Bromborough.
Another side in the ascendancy are Halfway House, who climbed to third place after they beat Port Sunlight 2-1 with goals from Joe Skinner and Johnny Cable.
Elsewhere, Bronze escaped from the bottom three after they came away from Grange with all three points.
Two goals from Dave Berry were supplemented by singles from James McAllister and Ashley Caldwell as Bronze recorded their second win of the season.
