Altrincham and District Amateur Saturday Football League.
7:06pm Monday 29th October 2012 in Sport
AFC Quarry came out 2-5 winners away at Wilmslow Sports at the weekend to make it eight league victories on the bounce and preserve their five-point lead at the top of the table.
Second-placed Broadheath Central FC beat Flixton Juniors 4-0 to keep themselves in touch with the frontrunners while third-placed Sale Town overcame Sale Moor FC 4-3 to remain six points off the pace with two games in hand on the teams above them.
Elsewhere in the top flight, Sale Amateurs claimed a 0-4 win at Atlantic FC to move up to fourth spot, Knutsford FC thrashed Salford AFC 9-1 to end a run of four consecutive league defeats and Egerton FC picked up their first victory of the season at the expense of fellow strugglers Kartel Sports. A hat-trick for Mike Simmons and a successfully converted free-kick from Sean Quine guided Egerton to a 3-4 success and condemned Kartel to their ninth loss in as many games. In the one other game played in the top flight, Sale United suffered a 2-4 defeat at the hands of Swinton FC and have consequently fallen below their opponents in the standings.
Meanwhile in Division Two, second-placed Northenden Victoria failed to close the gap on the out-of-action league leaders Cheadle Hulme after succumbing to a 1-3 loss at home to Broadheath Central JFC.
Deans Youth, Moorlands Sports and Styal FC, who all currently sit in the top half of the table, also missed out on the opportunity to take full advantage. The former lost 4-1 at West Didsbury & Chorlton while the latter two could only manage draws against Unicorn Athletic (2-2) and Grappenhall Sports (4-4) respectively.
In the two other games played in the second tier, AFC Jolly Butcher hammered Baroni FC 8-2 to bounce back from two straight league losses and APFC beat bottom side Old Alts 3-0 to end a run of six league games without a win.
