Yankees and Broughton will contest the Divisional Cup final in the Workington and District Sunday Anthony Zajac scores.jpgLeague.

Both were comfortable winners of the semi-finals at the week-end which produced 11 goals between them.

Yankees won 5-1 against Sun Inn Athletic with goals from Josh Smith (2), Scott Whitehead, Niall McGee and an opponent. Jason Donald scored Athletic’s consolation.

It was 4-1 at Broughton where the home side saw off the challenge of Workington Grapes with goals from Kieran Graham (2), Sean Slack and Elliot Irwin. Max Roberson replied for the Grapes.

In the Premier League title challengers Bluebell won again but not as easily as they would be expecting. They beat Grasslot 7-4 with goals Greg Quayle (2), Martin Harvey (2), Tom Powell (2) and David Gaunt.

Zak Little scored a hat-trick for Glasson who were playing their final game of the season. Ryn Porter scored the other.

Millfield Miners only had ten men available for their Premier Division game at home to Senhouse Street and were 1-0 down in the first minute through a Terry Wharrier goal.

They came back strongly and equalised through a penalty from Anthony Zajac and then went ahead through a second from Zajac.powell on target.jpg

As the game went on they defended resolutely with their keeper making several important saves. Both teams had several more chances but as the game seemed to be heading for an unlikely win for Miners, there was a dramatic equaliser five minutes from the end by Gary Hunter.

Bluebell hit the top of the Premier Division by a point on Tuesday night when they beat Voodoo 4-0.

They have that narrow advantage over Northside, the reigning champions, and both teams have five games to play.

David Gaunt (2), Tom Powell and Ryan Connolly scored the goals.

Dearham scored a good 3-2 win at Deer Orchard with strikes from Craig Rule (2) and Darren Rule with Dan Graham and Julian Kay netting for Orchard.

In the other Premier Division game Millfield Miners were 2-0 winners against Sun Inn. Kieran Messenger and Ashley Dixon provided the finishes.

Broughton are virtually home and hosed as Division One champions. They need to win one of their last two gams to be mathematically certain of taking the title.David Gaunt nets.jpg

As it is they would have to lose both and Yankees Bar win their last seven games to pip the villagers to the crown.

Both were in action on Tuesday with Broughton having to battle for their 5-3 home win over Sun Inn Athletic.

Keith Skillen was the hero with four of the goals, while Ben Howard notched the fifth.

Athletic stayed in the contest with goals from Neil Mowbray, Ryan Weightman and Lewis Penn.

Yankees just have to keep on winning and hope Broughton blow-up. They were taken all the way by Seaton Rangers in mid-week before collecting the points, 3-2.

Tony Whitehead (2) and Callum Best got the goals while Adam Kilgour and Barry Miller netted for Seaton.

PETER BRATLEY was out and about on Sunday and covered two of the games, which included goals for Anthony Zajac, Tom Powell and David Gaunt in descending order.
