Chris Smith the equalised for Hadcroft on the half hour when he latched on to a perfect long ball from Chris Horton 1 – 1.

Division 1

Forest Falcons 0 - 4 Halesowen Members

Halesowen opened the scoring on 10 minutes when Lewis Jones scored. The rest of the first half was a close battle with Falcons putting the pressure on Halesowen but to no avail.

The second half was a tight affair and with 10 minutes to go it could have gone either way but it was Robert Byrd for Halesowen that hit the killer punch 0 – 2. Lewis Jones then completed his hat trick with 2 goals in 6 minutes to seal the win for Halesowen but the result does not reflect on the way the game was.

Kewford Eagles Seniors 4 - 5 Bunch

Bunch put Kewford on the back foot from the start dictating the game for the first 10 minutes and went in front when a corner was not cleared and a deflected short went into the net. Straight from the kick off it was 0 -2 when Kewford failed to keep the ball, giving Bunch a chance. Kewford came back into the game despite Bunch dominating the game 1 – 2. Bunch scored their third when Kewford's keeper failed to keep hold of the ball and allowed a simple tap in goal 1 – 3. Kewford the got back into the game scoring 2 goals before the interval.

The first 25 minutes of the second half was evenly matched with both teams creating chances until Kewford took the lead for the first time. On 60 minutes Bunch scored from the spot 4 – 4. Kewford had two golden chances to seal the game but missed both before Bunch sealed the win with 5 minutes to go when they hit a screamer from 25 yards that gave the Kewford keeper no chance. No Goal scorer details supplied.

Lloyds 2 - 6 Coseley Tavern

A re-run of the Dalley Cup final from last week again saw Coseley beat Lloyds. Coseley opened the scoring on 20 minutes with a goal from Damon Rogers then two from Ben Scrivens completed the first half's goals.

Start Hillman hit his 51st of the season to make it 0 – 4 before Lloyds hit back; one each from Lee Witts and Jason Witts. Stuart Hillman completed his hat trick with two goals.
