No Doubting It Is a Thomas Defeat; ALL THE LATEST FROM THE REGION'S SUNDAY FOOTBALL SCENE Gateshead and District Sunday League

Article excerpt

PELAW took the points in a seven-goal Division One clash at Thomas Wilson.

In a quiet first half, it was the home side who started the brighter and they opened the scoring after eight minutes.

Mark Croan was fouled on the left side of the box and Jason Scott's free-kick beat everyone, including the Pelaw goalkeeper.

Nicholson should have made it 2-0, but Pelaw's goalkeeper saved with his feet, while at the other end only the post prevented an equaliser.

In the second half, Scott produced a carbon copy of his first-half goal, but this time the strike was disallowed for a foul by Croan on the goalkeeper.

On the hour mark the game sprang into life as Danny Clarke's free-kick beat everyone to curl into the top corner and double The Wilson's lead.

Pelaw were back in the game within two minutes when a nearpost corner was flicked in - and minutes later the scores were level.

Clarke was adjudged to have fouled an attacker and the resulting penalty was despatched past Hanvey.

With 15 minutes remaining, Pelaw took the lead, Keith Minikin turning a cross into his own goal.

Then, with just seconds left, Scott was tripped in the box and substitute McPhee scored the resulting penalty to make it 3-3.

Deep into injury time, McPhee went from hero to zero as the referee ruled he had blocked a shot with his arm, and again Pelaw scored from the spot to take all three points.

Duke of Cumberland won a close battle with Corporation Club.

Duke led 2-1 at half-time through Grant and Thompson.

Corporation fought back in the second half, but a Grant penalty sealed all three points in a 3-2 victory.

Stormont Main look like the Duke's biggest rival for the title this season - and they cruised to an 11-2 win over Highwayman.

Travellers hit 10 without reply away to Leam Lane and Felling Ship beat Felling JEM 7-1. …
