Football - Powick claim points in nine goal thriller
12:37pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in Sport
A NINE-goal thriller saw Powick win 5-4 at the University of Worcester in Worcester and District League Saturday Division One.
Stuart Harvey cracked a hat-trick for Powick as did Kyle Bailey for the students.
Newtown Sports progressed in the Worcestershire FA Saturday Minor Cup with a 4-2 win over Katy O’Ryans but Leigh and Bransford Badgers fell 6-0 at home to Inkberrow Reserves.
Callow End departed from the Worcestershire FA Sunday Premier Cup at the first stage with a 5-0 home defeat to Bromsgrove League side Victoria Barnt Green.
However, Colwall St James stormed through in the Junior Cup with a 6-0 thrashing of Spa Athletic from Droitwich.
In the Minor Cup, a single strike from Harvey saw Powick Reserves win 1-0 at Malvern Rangers VFC but Inter Express went out 6-3 at PPR Sporting.
Leigh and Bransford Badgers crashed out 12-1 at Kidderminster and District League outfit Wilden Village Reserves.
Badgers were forced to play the opening 15 minutes with just 10 players due to a late arrival and went 2-0 down.
However, even with a full complement, the visitors did not fare much better as their high-riding unbeaten hosts overwhelmed a below-par midfield to dominate.
Village led 6-0 at the break and proved just as relentless in the second-half, scoring a further six. Badgers’ Nick Medakovic and Steve Dallow were denied by the keeper at the other end.
Jack Pearson tapped in a consolation from a Medakovic cross.
Meanwhile, Shane Wade (2), Ashley Millard and Ben Evans helped Bromyard Town to a 4-2 win at Shifnal in the West Midlands League Premier Diviion.
Malvern Rangers secured their first Division Two victory, beating Wolverhampton Sporting Community Reserves 4-0.
Bryan Craven (2), Ricky Buckland and Daniel Phillips scored the goals.
Richard Green, Joshua Lloyd and Harry Wickett netted as Malvern Town Reserves lost 6-3 at Hereford Lads Club.
