FIRST-HALF goals by Mickey Price and Les Price booked Blacon YC Reserves' place in the final of the League Cup.

It was the third semi-final defeat this season for Hoole Rangers, who had Craig Rowlands on the mark.

Blacon will meet Tarporley Vics, who went through at the expense of Cestrian Alex with second-half strikes from Henry Buckley and Rob Edge.

In the Premier League, two Mark Dutton penalties earned Newton Athletic Youth a 2-1 home win over Chester Nomads Seconds, while strikes by Leon Whitley and Michael Waters gave Brewery Arms a 2-0 victory at Barrow Athletic.

Kydds Athletic look like taking the Division One title after goals by Graham Pollitt and Terry McNulty gave them a 2-0 win at Upton Borough, and Crossway beat Barrow Reserves 3-0 with goals from Ben Smith, Martin Hill and Tom Jones.

Simon Davies (2), Jason Perry, Adam Langton and Lee Coote netted for Team Highfield in a 5-3 home win against Frodsham United Reserves, who replied through Kevin Rankin (2) and Barry Everson.
