Barrow 1 Vauxhall 2
BOTH the Motormen and their Cumbrian hosts face the wrath of the FA after a relatively tame end-of-season match exploded into an angry fracas which saw four players sent off.
With Owen Brown's side on course for a fourth successive victory, also keeping up a 100% record for Vauxhall in four visits to Holker Street, tempers flared following an 80th minute incident.
Visiting striker Anthony Wright was needlessly scythed down from behind close to the touchline on the halfway line by Stuart Ludlam.
Vauxhall chairman Alan Bartlam said: 'It was a horrendous tackle and Wright retaliated from a prostrate position which led to Ludlam responding again, sparking a mass brawl which the referee has reported both teams for to the FA. The two protagonists were both sent off as were Barrow's Andy Hill and our own James Glendenning for their part in the unsavoury melee.'
The win enabled the Motormen to leapfrog Barrow in the table and finish the campaign in the seemingly secure position of 15th place, 11 points above the relegation zone - not bad for a side whose future in the division had not been secured until after the penultimate match.
Vauxhall fell behind on 18 minutes as Ludlam struck an absolute scorcher into the top corner of Tim Dittmer's goal from all of 35 yards out.
However, the Bluebirds' advantage lasted just three minutes as Wayne McDermott swung in a left-wing cross which James Olsen headed on and Karl O'Donnell volleyed home beyond the stranded Simon Bishop with several defenders in close attention.
The Motormen got better as the contest progressed and they grabbed a 58th minute winner through Brian Moogan.
O'Donnell was fouled just outside the area and midfielder Moogan struck his first goal for the club with an unstoppable free kick which had so much power, it still beat Bishop despite the keeper getting both his hands to the ball.
Vauxhall: Dittmer, Woodyatt, McDermott (D Wright 23), Glendenning, McNulty, Brazier, Moogan, Lawton, A Wright, Olsen, O'Donnell.
