West End boys keep fan­tas­tic run go­ing

Sunday Sun - - Football -

SUN­DER­LAND West End stretched their un­beaten league run to eight games with a com­pre­hen­sive 5-1 win at Gateshead Leam Rangers.

Lee Smith led the way with a fine hat-trick and both Adam Drys­dale and Kieron Martin also got on the score­sheet for Anthony Nel­son’s side.

Dean McCal­lum grabbed a con­so­la­tion for the hosts.

Hor­den CW claimed their third league win of the season as they beat An­n­field Plain.

A first-half brace from Liam Ap­pleby was added to af­ter the in­ter­val by a Matty Pat­ti­son strike as Hor­den com­pleted a 3-0 win at Der­went Park.

Dar­ling­ton Town Re­serves reached the first round of the To­tal Sport Alan Hood Char­ity Cup with a penalty shoot-out win at in-form Har­ton and Westoe CW. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in nor­mal time but the vis­i­tors se­cured a 5-3 win on penal­ties.

Ryan Bo­lam scored twice to help league lead­ers Heb­burn Town Re­serves to a 4-1 home win against Dar­ling­ton RA in round one of the same cup.

Cox­hoe Ath­letic fi­nally se­cured their first win of the season, as two goals from Stephen Clif­ford and one each for Scott Young and Ben Foster gave them a 5-1 win over West Auck­land Tunns in the Monkwear­mouth Char­ity Cup pre­lim­i­nary round.

There were two TWR Shipown­ers Char­ity Cup ties yes­ter­day and one of them pro­duced a 10-goal thriller and a penalty shoot-out.

Ju­nior Mu­sandi and Ste­wart Bath both scored twice for Wolvis­ton and Matty Garn­der and Jack­son Waller did the same for Hartlepool FC as their sides played out a re­mark­able 5-5 draw.

But it was Hartlepool that made it through to the first round proper with a 4-2 win in the shoot-out.

The drama wasn’t quite on the same level in Rich­mond Town’s first round tie with Silksworth CW, but their game still pro­duced a stun­ning fin­ish.

Martin But­ter­worth looked to have put Rich­mond through when he scored on 88 min­utes – but the vis­i­tors lev­elled through Harry Mun­day just mo­ments later.

There was even later heartache for Silksworth though as Kal­lum Hol­brook sent Rich­mond into round two with a goal in the fourth minute of in­jury-time.
