Sunderland Sunday League: Magnificent seven from Muir sparks Terminus triumph

It all happened as Washington Colliery and The Stella played out an amazing 10-goal First Division thriller.

Wear United scraped a great 3-1 win over rejuvenated Lakeside SSC.
Sam Wade bagged a glorious double and star man Stephen Keogh made certain with his goal. Ben Collier replied in vain.
TC Plastics took advantage of a weakened Hendon Athletic side to hit them for six in the Total Sport Challenge Trophy.

Reece Thompson was a constant thorn in Hendon’s side
Ashbrooke Sports Club were cruising 2-0 up, through a double from Hope-Hindmarsh, but Ashbrooke Hendon pulled one back through Prudhoe and debutant Tony Armstrong fired a late leveller to take the tie to penalties.
Hendon won 4-2 on spot-kicks.
Oddies won 3-2 at Pennywell Comrades in the Durham County Sunday Cup, with the tie having to be replayed after a mix-up in the original tie.
