ONLY one game in the Chester and District Sunday Football League survived the poor weather over the weekend, with Tarvin Rex claiming a home win over Axis United Innovent.

Mark Francis put the visitors ahead early on before Oli Tyler levelled for Tarvin after a quarter of an hour with both sides acclimatising themselves to the tricky conditions.

With both sides eventually settling into the game after a frantic start on a sticky and muddy pitch, the scores remained level until half time.

But just five minutes into the second period, Tarvin took the lead for the first time in the game when Oli Tyler found the net again.

A Todd Reid header then forced a fine save from Axis keeper Karl Campbell who managed to push the ball on to the crossbar before it was scrambled away.

Tarvin had a chance to double their lead with 15 minutes to go, but the hosts were once again denied by the woodwork.

And in the dying minutes of the game, Axis very nearly punished Tarvin for their missed chances but were wasteful themselves as they fired high and wide from promising positions.
