Crewe Regional Sunday Football League Round Up: Des Evans
In The Crewe Regional Sunday League Premier Division, Broadhurst FC and Cheshire Cheese played out a goalless draw, a rare event in Sunday football.
NHB and Talbot drew 1-1 at Bunbury, with Nick Ball on target for the home side, and Rhys Wright scoring for Talbot.
There was a surprise result at Betley with the second placed home side losing 4-0 to Willaston White Star. The key moment in the match came after 30 minutes when Willaston were awarded a penalty kick after a Betley player handled the ball on the goal line. The player was sent off, and Lukasz Synowicz converted the penalty. The same player went on to complete his hat trick, and Dan Harrison also scored.
Table toppers The Lions had to work hard to secure a 1-0 victory over Winnington SC, the only goal being a Danny Roberts strike after 60 minutes. The Lions missed a penalty kick late in the game.
George & Dragon still have a 100% record in the League after a 7-0 win over Raven Salvador. Joe Duckworth netted a hat trick, Ben Brown scored twice with Jordan Johnson and Andy Houston completing the scoring.
