NORTH STAR SHINE FOR NINE; South Wirral League.
SOUTH Wirral League Robin Hodgson Premier Division side North Star successfully negotiated another hurdle in their bid to lift the Wirral FA Junior Cup for a record third year in succession, following Saturday's 9-1 demolition of Lingham.
The scoreline consisted of efforts from Jasosn Senogles (3), Lee Gibson (2), Darrell Karisa (2), Neil Smith and Lee Smith as the holders turned in a convincing performance.
Also through are 1993 finalists Mersey Ferries and Sutton Black Lion, who curtailed the respective interests of Malt Shovel and Bebington Hawks.
Experienced hands Damien Standing and Tony Morgan both scored for Ferries, with Lee Williams also on the mark in the 3-2 verdict, while Sutton's 5-0 winning margin was confirmed by efforts from Lee Powell, Glyn James, Davie Dobson, Ian Martin and Dave Manning.
On the minus side, it was a case of better luck next time for Little Sutton, who fell foul of Manor Athletic and Rangers Breasks, who lost to Kelma.
Top scoring in the Robin Hodgson Premier Division were Widnes-based club Avon Athletic, who savoured an 8-3 win over Runcorn visitors Pavilions.
The goals came from Paul Baines (2), Steve O'Grady (2), Steve Farrell, Mike Farrell, Chris Pearce and Kenny Price.
Pavilions' consolations were attributed to Ian Tennant, Steve Castlemaine and Keith Bolton.
Title contenders Bronze Social took advantage of General Chemicals' disengagement, by taking closer order after bagging all three points at the expense of Tricorn, Craig Cole, Sean Cassidy and John Deakin netting in an easy 3-0 win.
Goals from Tommy Burns (2) and Paul Malone counted for nothing as Wallasey outfit Vanser lost out 5-3 at home to Tudor Rose, Duncan Tolen (2), Paul Reid, Andy Morgan and Ian Hartford hitting the net for the winners.
