AFTER a slow start and some good saves by Brookvale's keeper, Athletic had a 'goal' from Danny Whalley ruled offside.
Brookvale kept up the pressure but Athletic stormed ahead to make it 2-0 at half-time.
The second half provided great football from both sides with Beechwood breaking through Brookvale's defence with a hat-trick from Jordan Barker.
Athletic's defence was solid throughout and this, combined with keeper David Nevitt's great saves, denied the home team.
Other goals came from Jordan Berry (2), Ste Ball (1) and Lewis Buckley (1).
Man-of-the-match was Darren Soley, runners-up being Lee Martin and Jordan Barker.
