Bromyard Town 3 Wellington 6
WELLINGTON boss Derek Williams was buoyant after his team's crushing victory in the West Midlands League Premier Division Herefordshire derby.
"We were in rampant form and should have been in double figures," he said.
Wellington had a great chance to go ahead with only three minutes played.
Josh Hunt broke through and found himself one-on-one with the Bromyard keeper, only to shoot wide of the target.
The first goal was only nine minutes away, however, with Saul Thomas scorching past two defenders before shooting home.
Gareth Thomas notched his first goal for the villagers when he converted a Matt Williams corner and an Andy Price chip extended the advantage.
Bromyard pulled a goal back, but Wellington were far from finished and Paul Jones scored from close-range to give them a comfortable half-time lead.
In the second period, only fine saves prevented Aaron Morgan and Williams from extending the margin before Paul Jones was brought down in the area and git up to convert the spot-kick.
Thomas scored his second of the game before, with Wellington pushing forward in search of more goals, Bromyard scored twice in the closing stages.
Pegasus Juniors had an afternoon off after their scheduled match against Ellesmere Rangers was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Causeway United 0 Westfields 4
WESTFIELDS bounced back from their pre-Christmas Midland Alliance reverse at Quorn with an excellent result at their ninth-placed hosts.
Two goals apiece for Jamie Insall and Craig Jones ensured that the city side avenged an early-season home reverse.
Bartestree 3 Wolverhampton United 1
BARTESTREE boss Dave Cadwallader is looking for his side to produce an unbeaten run-in as they chase promotion from Division One of the West Midlands League.
"We have nine league games left and we have set the lads a target of going unbeaten until the season end," he said. "This is a big ask but if we are to gain any chance of promotion this is what we will need to do."
Tom Parry and Adriano Girolami failed with good first-half chances before Bartestree took the lead just after the hour.
Substitute Scott Turner won a corner and then produced an excellent finish to open the scoring.
Matthew Aubrey scored a second following a Kiea Cowley corner and, after Wolverhampton had pulled one back in the 77th minute, Turner rounded off the scoring with a goal-of-the-season contender.
Penncroft 1 Lads Club 4
LADS Club bounced back from a half-time deficit to gain three valuable away points.
The city side equalised through an own goal but then deservedly took the lead when Danny Moon scored twice, one of them from the penalty spot.
Lads Club confirmed their win in the closing stages when Matt Maturi beat three players before scoring from a narrow angle.
