Malpas 1 Tarporley Vics 3
ALWAYS eventful, the Malpas-Vics derby followed the formbook, but Tarporley didn’t have everything their own way.
The visitors started brightly and found themselves 1-0 up within 12 minutes, Henry Buckley forcing home a Jonny Winter flick-on.
Malpas’ Tom Smith unleashed a shot from the edge of the box 10 minutes later that forced Vics to think, a slight deflection taking it into the corner of the net to equalise.
On 35 minutes Vics restored their lead. Buckley’s through ball found Richie Moss, whose turn of pace left his marker behind as he blasted home.
Vics grabbed the final goal midway through the second half as Mike Parker’s cross found Dan Haralambous, who unleashed a fierce volley into the top corner.
Malpas face another tough Cheshire League game on Saturday, hosting Grappenhall Sports (3pm) while Vics go to Monk (3pm).
