Sunday Sun - - Football - Mark Carruthers

DUN­STON UTS main­tained their out­stand­ing start to the season as they moved into the first round proper of the FA Vase with a 2-0 win at North­ern League Divi­sion One ri­vals Ry­hope CW.

Strik­ers Scott Hes­lop and Liam Brooks were on tar­get for the 2012 Vase win­ners – as they made it 10 games un­beaten in all com­pe­ti­tions this season.

Sea­ham Red Star put their league strug­gles be­hind them as sec­ond-half strikes from Dan Wil­son and Vinny Gash helped them to a 2-0 win at North West Coun­ties League club Daisy Hill.

Chan­non North hit a hat-trick and Blyth Spar­tans loa­nee Jack But­ler made it two goals in as many games as Ash­ing­ton se­cured a 6-2 home win in an en­ter­tain­ing af­fair with Crook Town.

Nathan Steel was an­other North­ern League striker to score a tre­ble as he put his side on their way to a 4-2 win against Barnoldswick Town at the KGV Sta­dium.

Ian Chan­dler’s hopes of se­cur­ing a fifth FA Vase are still alive af­ter Bishop Auck­land saw off a de­ter­mined West Al­lot­ment Celtic side to se­cure their place in the next round.

How­ever, the two sides needed ex­tra-time to be sep­a­rated but a Chris Winn brace in the sec­ond pe­riod even­tu­ally helped the Two Blues to record a 3-1 vic­tory.

Con­sett also saw their tie head into an ex­tra 30 min­utes but they ex­ited the com­pe­ti­tion as a Jake Day goal gave Bridling­ton Town a 1-0 win in York­shire.

Bran­don United won by the odd goal in five against Divi­sion Two ri­vals Wash­ing­ton.

Bedling­ton Ter­ri­ers were grate­ful for goals from Stephen Young and Dy­lan Wil­liamson in their 2-0 home win against Red­car Ath­letic.

Dan Floun­ders, Kyle Mor­ris and Kris Sum­mers got the goals to lead Billing­ham Town to a 3-1 win against Birt­ley Town.

How­ever, fel­low Divi­sion Two clubs Northaller­ton Town and Tow Law Town both saw their Vase runs ended.

Richard Walker’s goal wasn’t enough to keeper Northaller­ton in the com­pe­ti­tion as they fell to a 2-1 de­feat against Vase debu­tants Stee­ton – and Tow Law Town crashed to a 5-2 loss at Nel­son af­ter play­ing the en­tire sec­ond-half with 10 men fol­low­ing Matty Fisher’s red card.

Ry­ton and Crawcrook Al­bion put up a brave dis­play be­fore be­ing knocked out by North­ern Coun­ties East club Gar­forth Town.

Scott Jasper got Al­bion back level just a minute af­ter Joe Col­ley had fired the vis­i­tors ahead at Kings­ley Park, but there was heartache for Tony Fawcett’s side when Devonte Mor­ton’s goal on 74 min­utes en­sured that the York­shire out­fit pro­gressed.

Pen­rith’s Vase hopes were also left in tat­ters af­ter they were well beaten at home by Charnock Richard.

Wil­lie Paul got the Bonny Blues goal in a 4-1 de­feat for his side.
