Powick are the Premier side as town gets set for derby tie
3:00pm Monday 4th November 2013 in Sport
POWICK established an edge in the McDonald’s Worcester and District League Saturday Division title race.
They inflicted a shock 3-0 defeat on visitors WCT Raiders who were defending a 100 per cent record at the top of the table.
John Murphy, Oscar Hooper and Mark White were all on the scoresheet.
Powick took over at the summit.
Meanwhile, poor performances and mistakes throughout the team cost Malvern Hills in their mid table Saturday league clash with Worcester University which ended 6-3.
Hills were a goal down after five minutes before Tristan Tyler held the ball up and set up Luke Carter to drive past the keeper from 25 yards.
It was the second-half before the students scored their second but another quick reply came when Matt McIntosh converted from the penalty spot.
Rowan Deakin scored Hills’ third when he controlled a Craig Tommey free-kick and volleyed in but the University ran away with four more goals.
The next day, Callow End progressed in the Worcestershire FA Sunday Premier Cup with a 2-1 success at Bromsgrove side Golden Lion Athletic.
Powick could not emulate their triumph in the Junior Cup, going down 4-0 at home to Hallow.
The Bell @ Pensax completed a 6-3 win over Malvern Rangers with Chris Boakes and Damon Groves both bagging a brace with Dan Westwood and Joe Haskell also on the scoresheet.
Malvern Victoria went out 5-2 at S Units, while Inter Express crashed 8-1 at West Hagley.
The Minor Cup saw Malvern side Foresters Arms go through with a 2-0 win at Old Vigornians thanks to goals from Graham Jones and Lee Hammond.
Falcons enjoyed a fine 4-3 win at Rock Sports but Powick Reserves were hammered 9-0 at Cock and Magpie.
Leigh and Bransford Badgers also exited the competition with a poor 5-1 defeat at Kidderminster and District League outfit Bewdley Arches.
With a string of absences, illnesses and unavailability, Badgers were down to the bare 11 players and forced to field 49-year-old team coach Bosko Medakovic.
Against by far the best side encountered this season, the visitors’ man-of-the-match was goalkeeper Henry Davies.
Centre-half Chris King did well but Stourport-based Arches were two goals ahead inside the first 17 minutes.
A fortunate third completed the first-half scoring and two quick goals midway through the second period effectively killed off the tie.
An own goal put Badgers on the scoresheet after a long punt upfield from Davies.
Sport Dysons continue to struggle in Worcester and District League Sunday Division Five after a 3-2 home defeat to Droitwich Spa Eagles ‘A’.
