CASTROL CLUB missed the opportunity to move to the top of the Chester and District Sunday League Section A table after suffering a 5-3 reverse to St Theresa’s.

With the fixture between Straw Hat and Christleton Athletic being postponed, third placed Castrol could have gone top with a win at Blacon Avenue, albeit having played five games more.

But St Theresa’s refused to roll over for the opponents, and instead claimed the three points for themselves to keep pace with fourth placed FC Mitchell Construction who also won.

The Saints took the lead early on through Chris Varney but strikes from John Welch and Kris Jones had Castrol 2-1 up by half-time.

Sam Henry scored his first of the afternoon from the penalty spot to bring the two sides level before Mark Reed put Castrol ahead once again not long after.

The lead wasn’t to last, though, as Ellis Moore equalised before Henry scored another two to complete his hat-trick and secure a 5-3 success for his side.

Jordan Fulton’s goal for Axis United wasn’t enough to prevent a 3-1 loss to Mitchell Construction who had Shaun Weaver and Danny Page (2) on the scoresheet.

The result now leaves Axis just two points clear of the league’s bottoms side, Vauxhall Motors, and seven points adrift of St Theresa’s who are fifth.

Meanwhile, in the Quarter Final of the Cheshire Sunday Cup, Great Float SC scored five in each half to hammer Tarvin Rex 10-0 and move into the last four of the competition.

In Pool A of the Bill Gresty Memorial Trophy, Dee Rangers edged past Waverton Centurion with an entertaining 4-3 victory to stay top of the group.

Ben Sache put Rangers ahead after 15 minutes before the impressive Matt Harland-Jones equalised for Waverton on the half hour mark.

Craig Rogers put Rangers ahead once again soon after, but there was still time before the half-time break for Harland-Jones to equalise from a 25-yard free kick.

Ten minutes after the restart, Waverton took the lead for the first time when a Harland-Jones backheel found Hayden Stuart to slot home, but Adam Wilson brought the teams level again on the hour mark.

Harland-Jones had the chance to seal his hat-trick and put Waverton ahead from the penalty spot, but the forward saw his effort saved by Rangers’ keeper Joe York.

That save meant that Adam Wilson’s solo effort late on decided the game in Dee Rangers’ favour for a 4-3 victory.

Axis United Innovent stayed top of Pool B thanks to their 4-2 success over AFC Tattenhall. Collen Mutete scored a brace for the visitors who ultimately lost out to strikes from Connor Evans, Tim Ashbrook, and Elliot Pryce (2).

Elsewhere in the group, Upton Youth Centre beat Travellers Rest 2-0 thanks to second half goals from Zac Theadgold and Mark Houston.
