THE Frontrunner Premier Division title race in the Warrington & District League looks set to go down to the wire. Eagle Sports lost twice in a week to allow Widnes side St Michael's back into pole position.
In midweek, Eagle were walloped by Penlake 3-0. A first-half brace by Steve Kimble and strike by Steve Campion handed the initiative to Penlake.
That Eagle defeat was not too catastrophic as Saints were humbled 3-1 by bottom side Greenall.
Saturday's action pitched Eagle away to title holders Whiston who gave a fine display to seal a 4-2 win and dent Eagle's title hopes.
St Michael's had an easier passage with Beeches unable to contain the title aspirants - Saints' 3-1 victory lifting them back to the summit on points difference but with two games in hand on the Thornton Road outfit.
Penlake are a point further back but are running out of games.
There is a new leader in Division One with Vulcan hitting the pinnacle after picking up four points in the week.
Just a single point separates Vulcan, Moorfield & Downall Green with each having two games remaining.
Lymm Rangers are 3 points further back - but with a game in hand.
Halton Borough's grip on Division Two was loosened with two dismal results.
Runcorn Albion took charge of the midweek clash with goals by Peter Bazley and Mark Urmson but Borough rallied to earn a late point.
But on Saturday there was no comeback against General Chemicals Reserves as hat-tricks by Si Archer & Jon Mc Donald broke Borough hearts.
Kevin Hammond claimed a seventh -with Borough hitting a solitary goal in reply.
Chems' winning formula saw them 3-0 midweek win at Beechwood with Ward hitting a treble.
Borough's lead is now cut to seven points but they have one game remaining while Chems have five.
Beechwood's second recent defeat after going 15 games unbeaten has diminished their title hopes.
Mill Brow concluded their championship season in Division Three with the narrowest of wins against Widnes R&S - Andy Condron claimed the important goal in Brow's 16th win of the season.
