Sunderland Sunday League: Brave TWR go down fighting in County Cup

Have your say

THE league’s last two hopes in the Durham County Sunday Cup saw their dreams dashed.

Hylton Castle TWR showed great character to pull back from a 3-0 deficit against former winners Hetton Lyons CC, levelling with Matthew Raine’s goal and an Adam Drysdale brace.

But Lyons popped up with a spectacular winner in the dying minutes.

Silksworth Paragon went down 2-1 to a tidy Throston Hotspur side, with poor finishing proving costly. The Hartlepool side were two up before Reece McCann came off the bench to reduce the deficit late on.
