09 September 2012 | Matt Perry
In the Crewe FA Sunday Vase it was agony for AFC Crewe Town from the Cheshire and Border Counties as they went down 2-1 to Alsager Town after extra time.
That pain was brought into sharp focus after they missed a penalty to take the tie to penalty kicks minutes from the end of the extra period. In the other fixtures it was nip and tuck at half time with St Marys and Salvador locked in a 1-1 draw but the 2 nd half went very much in favour of Salvador as they ran out 6-2 winners.
Another late goal in normal time put paid to WEB as they were just edged 4-3 and Garry Gordon bagged a hat trick for Wickstead as they beat Sandbach Town 5-3. Other Wickstead strikes came from Rory Saunders and Andy Blud.
In the Premier Division of the Crewe Regional Sunday Football League, Railway Hotel just held on to their 100% record but only after an effort on the Nantwich Wanderers goal was cruelly deflected into their net.
The timing of the goal in the 93rd minute meant that Nantwich Wanderers could not muster an even later equalizer. FC Duke went into 2nd place on their own after a 4-2 win over Wick. Liam Murray, Chris Jackson and a Pete Barrow brace made up the FC Duke scorers while Pat Millington and Mike Gannon netted for Wick. White Lion were held to a 2-2 draw against AFC Crewe Town. Alan Davies got both for AFC while Andy Parkinson from the spot and Craig Griggs scored for Lion. Bentley Motors were also held a 2-2 draw with
Daryl Scarlett and John Offie netting the Motormen and Mike Chester and Steve Nurton replied for Square One. Nags Head Bunbury picked up their first points of the season with a 3-2 win over Crewe Athletic. Pete Aidley, Scott Armstrong and a Nick Ball penalty made up the tally for Nags Head with Warren Bancroft and P J Hudson replying for Crewe Athletic. A solitary Asher Moat penalty was enough for Willaston White Star to see off Crewe FC while Crewe Diamonds had strikes from Alex Aldington, Robert Timmis and Lyndon Campbell to thank as they beat Wrenbury 3-0.
In Division only three games were possible with most Division 1 Clubs involved in the Vase. In those games the home Clubs were in dominant form. Acton Star beat Rising Sun 4-0 with goals from Tammy Haywood (2), Simon Leslie and Anthony Roe. Boot & Shoe Villa went one better beating Faddiley 5-0. Adam Smithies and Kane Fletcher both bagged a double for Villa with Brad Eardley making up the tally. Finally Ocean demolished Wistaston Athletic 8-0. Brothers Ryan and Luke Kennedy both got braces while Mark Parker went one better
and got a hat trick. The other strike came from Paul Crimes.
