AFC TATTENHALL romped to a comprehensive and entertaining away win over Axis United Innovent in a game made memorable by Matthew Dutton’s incredible strike from his own half.

The visitors took the lead ten minutes into the Section B contest when Scott Tilston headed home from a Tattenhall free kick.

Tilston then added a second goal three minutes before the break as he made no mistake from 12 yards to convert a penalty which made it 2-0 to his side.

But Axis United Innovent hit back immediately with Mark Frances pulling a goal back just seconds after play resumed to leave Tattenhall leading 2-1 at half-time.

The visitors then extended their lead by drawing first blood in the second half when James White found the net two minutes later before James Thorburn soon made it 4-1.

Peter Harper then put the ball past his own AFC Tattenhall goalkeeper to score an own goal which gave Axis United Innovent a lifeline in the game, but White grabbed his second of the game to all but extinguish those hopes with 15 minutes remaining.

Dutton then produced his moment of magic as he spotted the Axis keeper off his line to hammer home an effort from inside his own half to put his side 6-2 ahead.

Thorburn then struck his second of the game when he found the net from 20-yards to complete a 7-2 rout for Tattenhall.

Meanwhile, in the quarter final of the Chester and District Sunday FA Cup, Axis United proved to be too strong for Tarvin Rex as they moved into the last four of the competition.

Brad Stanley opened the scoring for Axis before Will Furnedge equalised for the visitors to leave the sides level with all to play for going into the second half.

Stanley scored a second to put his side ahead once again, before Dave Pearson and Macaulay Salter added their names to the scoresheet to give Axis a 4-1 lead.

Cameron Noyes scored for Tarvin with ten minutes to go, but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation goal that came as too little too late for the visitors.
