Tarporley Victoria 0 Lynotype CH Nomads 2

A MUCH improved performance from Tarporley was not enough to overcome a talented Lynotype side in Division One of the Cheshire League.

Saturday’s hard fought contest looked to be heading for a goalless stalemate.

That all changed in the 75th minute, though, when a missed penalty by the away side spurred them on in attack.

Their urgency was rewarded moments later with the first goal of the game.

A high tempo passing move dissected the Vics’ rearguard and Joshua Howard applied the finish.

The advantage was soon doubled courtesy of a measured lob from the menacing Stephen Yarwood, putting the game beyond doubt.

In Division Two, Malpas bounced back from two heavy defeats to beat Maine Road Reserves 3-1.

After a few half chances, the deadlock was broken when a great run from left-back Gary Sumner resulted in him being fouled in the penalty area. Danny Lloyd stepped up and slotted home his first goal of the season from the spot.

Lee Parry put Malpas in control at before the same player netted again to make it 3-0 up by half-time.

Malpas, kicking uphill after the restart, could not prevent Maine Road’s Sean Chappell from netting a consolation goal.
