THE Wirral Amateur Cup went to Willaston on Monday, coming from 2-0 down to beat Vauxhall A 3-2 after extra-time.
Tom Coan hit two goals to take the game into extra time and, with two minutes left, Karl Dunbar hit the winner from the penalty spot after he had been pulled down.
League action saw Christleton draw level on points at champions and leaders Heswall on Saturday, with a Chris Herbert double.
The title looks like going to the wire with Christleton four goals worse off but with six games left to turn the situation around.
In Division Two, Chester Nomads' outside chance of promotion collapsed after they were beaten 2-0 at home by Poulton Vics Reserves.
Christleton's second posted a 3-1 win over Maghull Reserves, thanks to Andy Shelton (2) and an own goal, while Manor Athletic were relegated after their 3-2 defeat at FC Building Boards.
One relegation place remains with Helsby, who fell 7-0 to New Brighton, Blacon YC and Ashville Reserves in the equation. Second-bottom Ashville trail both of their rivals by seven points with games in hand.
In Division Three, Manor Reserves also occupy bottom spot and are likely to forfeit their West Cheshire status in the event of their first team's relegation. And their plight worsened after Neil Cart-wright (2) and Lee Price struck to earn Upton AA Reserves a 3-1 decision.
With a penalty shoot-out just 90 seconds away, Vaux-hall Motors Reserves hit a dramatic winner to snatch the Pyke Cup and destroy Heswall's dreams of a league and cup double
Heswall drew first blood on 12 minutes with Peter McN-ulty pouncing on a knock-down to give keeper Farr no chance.
The Motormen remained undaunted and, after hitting the bar on 34 minutes, equalised three minutes later with Nick Scholes drilling home a superb free kick.
Heswall pressed for the winner in the last 20 minutes of the second half, but Vauxhall's rearguard weathered the pressure and, following the introduction of substitutes Phil Greenhalgh, Gareth Drury and young Tom Lyness, began to look the better side in extra time.
In the first period, the Heswall defence was breached as Greenhalgh reacted quickest to put the Motormen in front. But after the turnaround, Heswall levelled with a fine goal from Mark Jackson.
With thoughts of a penalty shoot-out fast approaching, Heswall failed to clear from a throw-in and the ball fell for Kevin Davies to smash the ball home from close range.
Tomorrow, Christleton visit Ellesmere Port in Division One, there's a local derby in Division Two with Christleton Reserves hosting Upton AA and Chester Nomads entertain Runcorn visitors FC Building Boards.
Blacon YC welcome promotion favourites New Brighton in Division Three, promotion challengers Grange Athletic travel to St Werburgh's and MBNA have a home fixture with West Kirby Reserves.
