There’s no stopping Wolves Sporting Community at the moment after they reeled off their 12th straight win with a 6-0 success over struggling Pegasus Juniors to cement their place on top of the table.
Jon Letford led the charge with a hat-trick while Wes Gray and Tom Hill also hit the target after Alex Moore had opened the scoring from the penalty spot. The result leaves second from bottom Pegasus in real peril of relegation, especially as third from bottom Dudley Sports turned around a 2-0 deficit at half time to defeat basement boys Wellington Amateurs 4-2.
The Amateurs had looked set for a rare victory after goals from Charlie Swingwood and a thunderous Matt Hanson own goal had put the Shropshire side in charge. But the second half was a different story as Sports stormed back with goals from Jo Billingham, Jack Bailey, Kaynell Smith and Richard Nicholson.
Malvern Town remain second in table, six points adrift of Wolves Sporting, but are now running out of games in the process with just three remaining. But Malvern made sure they’ll be no let-up after they managed a 4-1 win at Wolves Casuals. Kyonn Evans was another hat-trick hero, slotting home Malvern’s first three goals before Matt Turner made it 4-0 with his 25th league goal of the term.
Casuals chances of hitting back were crushed when the league’s leading goalscoring Liam Hughes missed from the penalty spot before Shane Thomas slotted home a late consolation.
Tividale remain on track for a top three finish after scraping a 1-0 win at sixth placed Bewdley Town. Ben Birch bagged the only goal of the game despite Tividale being reduced to 10 men when Joe Lawley was sent off for a second yellow card.
Ellesmere Rangers leapfrog above Bewdley after they won a 4-3 thriller at Cradley Town. Cradley were gifted an early lead when Ellesmere goalkeeper Mason Springthorpe mis-kicked Charlie Fletcher’s enforced back-pass and the ball finished up in the back of the net.
Jack Briscoe levelled for Ellesmere only for Cradley to regain the lead a minute later through Aaron Weston. Karl Bailey made it 2-2 on 16 minutes and then Seth Ellis fired the Shropshire in front on 17 minutes.
Cradley came back to level in the second half when Jordan Harrison converted Chris Rabone’s cross before Karl Bailey cracked home a close range winner just after the hour with his 27th league goal of the season.
Dudley Town’s great escape under manager Dean Whitehouse continues to gather force as they grasped a 1-0 win over Smethwick Rangers courtesy of an 85th minute goal from Connor Hadlington.
Stone Old Alleynians also eased their relegation worries with a 2-1 win over Herefordshire side Wellington. Two goals from Jack Tomlinson put Stone in charge at half time.
But Stone were hanging on for dear life at the death as Wellington dominated the second half. Wellngton hit the post before Andy Price pulled a goal back with five minutes remaining.
