AIDAN Bowles scored four, but his Travellers Rest side shared the spoils with Axis United Innovent after an incredible Section B fixture in the Chester and District Sunday League.

The home side took an early lead after ten minutes when Axis United’s Mark Frances found the net, but Bowles equalised for the visitors on the half hour mark.

Travellers Rest then went ahead five minutes later when Bowles found the net again, only for Axis to draw themselves level soon after through Elliot Pryce’s effort from the edge of the area.

Frances thought he’d put the hosts ahead once again, but saw his effort chalked off for offside. The home team did take the lead before half-time, though, when Wes Sinclair found swept home just before the referee’s whistle.

Ten minutes after the restart, Frances did score his second of the game to put Axis 4-2 up and on course for three points that would have seen them jump into fifth place.

But with 15 minutes to go, Bowles scored again to complete his hat-trick and set up a nervy finale for the hosts and supporters.

And five minutes later, Travellers Rest were awarded a penalty. Bowles levelled the scoreline through his twice-taken spot kick to leave the game in the balance at 4-4.

Axis United’s Ben Melander then hit the crossbar in the final minute of normal time, before Bowles saw a goal bound effort brilliantly tipped over by Axis keeper Karl Campbell seconds before the referee blew for full-time in the entertaining clash.

The other Section B fixture over the weekend saw a top of the table clash between league leaders Custom House and second placed Tarvin Rex.

Alex Wilkinson’s stunning 30-yard free kick gave Tarvin a 1-0 lead at half-time, but an unbeaten Custom House side equalised straight after the restart.

Dale Harris brought the teams level before Jack Delgado scored what proved to be the winner with eight minutes remaining to condemn Tarvin to a 2-1 defeat that sees them fall six points adrift of Custom House.

There was only one Section A fixture with top of the table Straw Hat hosting Axis United.

Terry Riley was on target for Axis, but goals from Nial Mulreay and Jack Proudfoot were enough to earn the home side all three points and extend their lead at the top to four points.

Waverton Centurion were put to the sword as they were resoundingly beaten 7-0 by a Dee Rangers side who moved into the last four of the Chester and District Sunday FA Cup.

Andrew Fowlie scored a hat-trick in the quarter final contest, while Ben Sache, Nathan Hickson, Dewi Adamson and Gary Wilson also struck in the big win.

Meanwhile, FC Mitchell Construction progressed into the second round of the Chester and District Sunday League Cup after seeing off Vauxhall Motors.

Mitchell took a 3-0 lead into the half-time break courtesy of strikes from Billy Dixon, Danny Page and Eamon Ryan. But the visitors scored twice in the second period through Tom Molloy and Joe Dowthwaite to set up a thrilling finish, but the hosts held on to progress.
