Steely Sullivan keeps calm to down Town; MIDLAND LEAGUE DIVISION ONE.
WALSALL Wood survived a scare as they fought back from two down to steal a 3-2 win at Uttoxeter Town.
The hosts led through a James Curley brace but Paul Sullivan pulled a goal back on 75 minutes, quickly followed by a Tony Clarke strike two minutes later to level the match. Sullivan grabbed the winner from the penalty spot three minutes from time.
Lewis Commins was the star man with four goals in Nuneaton Griff's 6-4 defeat of Racing Club Warwick whose striker Sean Kavanagh also scored three. George Brindley and Henry Harris were also on target while Richard Powell scored Racing's opener.
Heather St John's put on a five-star display as they won 5-2 at Heath Hayes inspired by four goals from Simeon Cobourne.
Hayes led twice through Mark Potis but in-form Coburne guided his team to victory with Benn Minshull scoring Heather's fourth of the afternoon.
Paget Rangers were also among the goal, hitting seven past hosts Pershore Town in a 7-2 hammering of the Worcestershire side. Dan Carter helped himself to three while Montel Gibson, Dean Morris and Ross Dempster (two) joined the goal fest. Alfie Bloomer and Cameron Matthewson replied for Pershore. Brocton had a two-goal lead pegged back by Lichfield but they rallied to win 4-2. A Tom Green penalty and Josh Mansell strike had cancelled out goals from Ross Clarke and Declan Arber but Joe Hartshone's defected shot and Arber's second of the afternoon secured the points.
Ilkeston beat Cadbury Athletic 4-0 with two goals apiece for Malachi Lavelle-Moore and Jamie Walker who also missed a penalty.
Curvin Ellis scored two as Chelmsley beat Coventry Alvis 4-0 with Ross Casey and Adam Keely also netting.
The only West Midland League Premier fixture to survive the wet weather came at Stone Old Alleynians who picked up a prized 1-0 win over Pegasus Juniors in their bottom-of-the-table battle.
Stone had to wait until the 83rd minute when Adam Heath headed home to seal the points. As a result, Stone leapfrog over Pegasus and up three places to 14th spot while Pegasus remain perilously close to the drop zone.
