Pegasus Juniors win at Bilston to remain at the top of the West Midlands League Premier Division
5:00pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Sport
FOUR goals in the first 36 minutes cemented Pegasus Juniors’ place at the top of the West Midlands League Premier Division in a 4-2 win at Bilston Town.
Juniors made the initial breakthrough after eight minutes when Sam Harrison and Chris Mortlock set up Kane Kahaki to score from 10 yards.
Ben Price shot just wide and Kahaki clipped the top of the bar before Pegasus increased their lead on 26 minutes.
From a corner on the left taken by Cory Hyde, Mortlock headed inside the near post.
Three minutes later, Anthony Robbins and Hyde set up Mortlock to fire home his second goal of the afternoon. And, another six minutes on, Hyde powered home his 13th goal of the season from a cross by Price. Town reduced arrears in first-half stoppage time when goalkeeper Ben Astley scored from the penalty spot after Jamie Cuthbertson had tripped John Maydew.
It was Juniors who had the better opportunities in the second period but the only goal went to the home side four minutes from the end, Jamie Machin rolling the ball past Bryn Watkins after Cuthbertson missed a clearance.
Wellington are in eighth place in the table after a 4-0 home success against Willenhall Town. Saul Thomas was twice on target for the villagers whose other goals came from Will Burley and Paul Jones.
Bartestree were the only one of the trio of county clubs in Division One to register a win. The newly-promoted side travelled to basement club Hanwood and returned with a 3-1 success.
Lads Club made a poor start in their home game with Trysull when Dan Patrick set up Ryan Edmunds to give the visitors the lead.
Lads Club were reduced to 10 men when Mike Evans was sent off for a second bookable offence and Trysull clinched the points with a second goal after the break to complete a 2-0 win.
Goals from Martin Loveridge and Jamie Welch were unable to prevent Ledbury Town from going down to a 4-2 defeat at Wem.
l FURTHER gloom settled on allpay.park as Westfields’ run of matches without a win extended to seven with a 2-0 home defeat by Causeway United.
Goalkeeper Matt Gwynne had to make a couple of smart saves as Causeway made a lively start, but the best chance of the first period went to the home side with Craig Jones playing in Jamie Cuss who directed his shot straight at Tom Turner in the Causeway goal.
Defences continued to be on top until the 68th minute when Westfields conceded a penalty.
Phil Glover tripped Aaron Lloyd and Alex Cowley sent Gwynne the wrong way from the spot.
Westfields should have levelled shortly afterwards when Brad Birch got behind the Causeway defence and squared to Cuss who shot over from six yards out.
Westfields continued to push forward in search of an equaliser but fell further behind deep in injury-time when Lloyd rose unchallenged at the far post to head home.
