DUE yet again to awful weather only two games were played in the Bolton at Home Sunday Football League.

Queen Anne took on Astley Bridge Elite in the quarter-final of the Division One Cup, while Westhoughton faced Wellington at the same stage of the Division Two Cup.

Last season's champions and current league leaders Queen Anne suffered a shock 8-2 defeat to the much-improving Astley Bridge.

Astley Bridge were dominant from the start and within five minutes they were ahead through an excellent strike from Joe Howlin.

They doubled the lead in the 10th minute when Anthony Blears converted after some excellent work from Chris McCaughtrie.

Astley Bridge kept the pressure on the champions and made it 3-0 after 25 minutes with another excellent finish by Howlin.

Queen Anne regrouped and dominated the last 15 minutes of the first half.

Their pressure paid off when they got a goal back just before half time with an excellent finish from Josh Stott.

Queen Anne looked like they might get back into the game at the start of the second half as they piled more pressure on the Astley Bridge defenders.

However all hope was lost in a crazy five minutes when they had Jason Perry sent off for dissent and then lost captain Kieron Edwards though injury.

Playing against nine men Astley Bridge then turned up the heat and went 4-1 up with another superb finish by Howlin to complete his hat-trick.

They then ran riot with Kevin Miftaraja and McGaughtrie on target, Howlin scoring his fourth and his brother Tom getting on the scoresheet before Stott got his second of the game and a consolation for his side.

In the Division Two Cup last-eight tie Westhoughton also won 8-2.

It was an impressive margin of victory for the side second in the league against a team just one place below them.

Westhoughton dominated from start to finish and won with goals from Michael Hughes (two), Adam Dorken, Josh Pennington, Callum May, Declan King, Ben Howarth and Richard Pursehouse.

Mark Trent and Kieron Wise got the consolation goals for Wellington.
