HIGHFIELD Athletic’s long wait for a Chester & District Sunday League victory is over.
The Blacon outfit failed to win any of their opening eight Concorde Trophies Section A matches but they got off the mark at the weekend by snatching a 3-2 success at Tarvin Rex.
Chris Peters put the hosts in front and Neil Astbury brought them level after Aaron Pryce and Paul Mackin had netted for the visitors.
That was the way it stayed until late on when Sam Henry fired in Highfield’s winner.
FC Bull & Stirrup were also celebrating their first three points of the season after Tom Berry took advantage of a defensive to mix-up to score the only goal of the game in their 1-0 triumph at Custom House.
Adam Cheers (2) struck in the dying minutes to earn FC Blacon a 3-3 draw at AFC Lache (Liam McGovern, Jamie Kelly 2).
Lee Bennion got Blacon’s other effort.
Substitute Lee Breeze hit four second-half goals as Ferry Athletic came from behind to win 5-3 at home to St Theresa’s (Chris Larson 2, Tony Buckley) in Abbey Taxis Section B.
Ryan Lloyd had earlier equalised for Ferry.
Two first-half goalkeeping mistakes laid the foundations for Spital Vaults’ 3-0 home victory over Northgate Village.
Andy Austin broke the deadlock after a free kick from Joe Walley was not dealt with.
Centre-back Walley then doubled the advantage after he saw another free kick – this time from his own half – float into the top corner.
Nathan Bradshaw completed the scoring after the restart by turning in a Danny Platt cross.
