BRIDGE Timber avenged an earlier home defeat by Halton Barley by winning the return match in the Courier Post Runcorn Sunday League 6-1.
Bridge star man Andy Gott's menacing corner was flicked home left-footed by Ste Coady for a six-yard opener and they should have gone further ahead.
Karl Thomas, having been put through by Dave Tierney, was brought down by keeper Kudrycz who saved his victim's spot-kick.
Barley caught Bridge on the counter when their MoM Peter Dorgan was sent clear to equalise with a shot from just outside the box.
Bridge's lead was restored when Gott's pinpoint cross was headed home at the near post by Thomas.
Good defending early in the second half by Lee Evans kept Barley at bay and Timber's Stu Kirby had to save well with his feet in the 62nd minute.
On a counter-attack, Bridge's Liam Sweeney picked out Thomas, who rounded the keeper and - despite having a man on the line - cheekily netted inside the post.
Another fine Gott corner was headed home by Coady at close range before sub Thomas Whalley delivered a great cross for Kev Ward, who should have scored.
Kev Patterson, in Timber's mid-field, was instrumental in the fifth after winning the ball in the centre circle and putting Kev Ward one on one. Ward soon netted again after being released by Garry Jacques.
Lunt, Maloney and Connor scored in Tricorn's 3-3 draw against Dray who replied through Robbie Cosgrove (2) and Peter Harrison. Mark Radley was Dray's MoM.
Division One's Reos missed their chance to step closer towards the title when beaten 2-1 at Todd Dynamoes. Garry Rowlands scored for Reos with Ste Cosgrove their MoM.
Bridge Boys remain second after their 5-1 win at Kydd's. Bridge scorers were Simon Shaw (2), Keiron Smith, Philip Bryan and Ivan Atanasov with their man-of-the-match award going to John Miller. Peter Murphy netted for Kydd's.
* HALEBANK climbed into second spot in the Warrington & District Lea gue.
They won 1-0 at Penlake thanks to a 10th-minute goal when Andrew White's cross was only half-cleared and Steven Lewis rifled home.
Halton Borough's Division One blushes were spared by goals either side of half-time from Gary Jones and Karl Fonterigo as they came from two down for a 2-2 home draw with Greenall. Halsall and Alkerely had struck in the first half hour but Greenall then had a defender sent off for a foul and the tide turned.
Halton Borough Reserves (Peter Jones 2, Anthony Sparks) went out of the Reg Oliver Trophy 5-3, conceding twice in extra-time.
