4:10pm Thursday 4th December 2008 in Sport
Poynton Nomads have made the first decisive in roads into the dominance of the top two clubs by inflicting the third defeat of the season on Club AZ taking them within four points of the hosts with two games in hand.
Nomads have come on in leaps and bounds since they uncovered strikers Liam Gray and Steve Rhoades who are fast becoming a potent strike force.
Referee Dave Friedlander took charge of two excellent footballing sides with Nomads in the ascendancy in the first period taking a decisive two goal advantage. With the second half seeing three goals a piece, it was the visitors who went home with all three points.
High Lane got a morale boosting victory against Poynton who struggled without seven key players . Despite Chris Bell’s goal and plenty of pressure on the home goal with goalkeeper Nick Winstanley in fine form Poynton couldn’t convert their pressure into goals.
High Lane took full advantage of the conditions and rode their luck, with the lively Jake Getcheffvsky, their leading scoring , grabbing two, taking his tally to five for the season. Dave Wilde secured the points hitting number three.
Mary Dendy too turned the form book upside down with an excellent victory away at Sandringham Road against Juno. Dendy’s team looked more balanced than in previous weeks and troubled their hosts early on with balls over the top of their defence.
Old Alts Vets showed true grit as they came from two goals down to take a point at home to Boarhound who really must be taking all three points from as many games as possible if they are to enter the title race .
In the Alts derby game the Youth came out victorious winning two goals to nil. Tom Porter and Andy Masey both on target.
Wilmslow remain on top and the only unbeaten side in the ECL after a high scoring game at Woodford Rec against Poynton Kings .
There will not be many matches where the home side scores four times and ends up taking nothing from the game – this however was one.
There is no doubt Wilmslow can score goals but this result should give some of the other teams hope that they can also concede a few!! Scorers for Kings – Scott Wright with two , Ian Jefferson and an og. For Wilmslow, Tom Gill hit four, Nick Russell two, Mike Harrison and Andy Hume.
