BOLTON AT HOME SUNDAY LEAGUE: Cattle Market frustrated in quest to go top
CATTLE Market missed the chance to go joint top of Division One after being held to a 2-2 draw at mid-table Darcy lever.
Three points would have taken the second-placed side level with league leaders Morris Dancers.
But goals from Darcy’s prolific strike duo Gaz Whiteside and Nat Whittle frustrated Cattle Market, who had Sean Rothwell and Callum Anderson on the scoresheet.
Despite the setback, Cattle Market remain in a good position, two points behind Morris Dancers with two games in hand.
Bottom side Great Lever failed to add to their solitary victory this season, but they came close after putting three past D Havilland on home turf.
Kyle Pyrah bagged a brace while Christian Richards also scored, but the mid-table visitors scraped a 4-3 win.
They spread the scoring throughout the team, with Dean Usher, Scott Hughes, Jason and Robert Tait all finding the net.
There was only one match played in Division Two, but it was a cracker as third-placed Deane went down 7-2 at home to fifth-placed Great Lever Wanderers.
Danny Phillips scored a hat-trick for the visitors, while Anthony Greer hit two and Paul Farnworth and Aaron Greer managed a goal apiece.
John Miller carried the fight for Deane, scoring twice.
