A MAJORITY of Morpeth Sunday League sides were in cup action at the weekend as some of the semi-finalists in the Lewin and Dobfar cups were decided.
Felton were the victors in a ten-goal thriller to book their place in the semis of the ACS Dobfar Cup.
Blackthorn Rovers were 3-0 up before Felton fought back to 3-2 at the break.
The home side went ahead, before having a man sent off and the scores were levelled by Blackthorn.
Two more goals from Felton ensured they went through to the next round.
Elsewhere, in a battle of Division Two’s top sides, league leaders Ashington RAOB also booked their spot in the semi-final of the Dobfar Cup.
The Buffs won 2-1 at second-placed Village Inn Longframlington thanks to two Stu Douglas goals.
Two fixtures were played in Division Two with Morpeth Chantry getting a chance to go top with other sides on cup duty at home against East Chevington.
Chantry went 3-0 up and must have thought the three points were in the bag with Mark Jewitt (2) and Peter Allaway on the scoresheet, but East Chev fought back for a share of the spoils, a valuable point for the side who have won just once all season.
The only side with a worse record in Division Two is Alnmouth Argyle and they showed no sign of stopping the rot and halting their run of eight league defeats as they slumped to a 9-0 defeat at Newbiggin Bankhouse.
