Deer Orchard and Northside served up a classic Sunday County Cup tie at Wakefield Road, Cockermouth.
Northside, the reigning Workington Sunday League champions, were trailing 4-3 with just two minutes left but managed to grab an equaliser to send the tie to extra time.
They came through strongly in the added 30 minutes to win 7-4 and earn their place in the second round.
Deer Orchard secretary Gary Horsley said: “The game was a credit to both sides so good Luck to Northside in the next round.”
Callum West (2), Louis Pickering and Rob Cox had looked as though they had done enough with the Orchard goals but Northside rallied to win it. Their goals came from Tommy Whitehead (3), Jamie Bramley (2), Jaden Scott and Jamie Glover.
Senhouse AFC, who have reformed this season, had their biggest win since returning to the league when they beat St Bees of the Egremont Sunday League,11-2.
The Senhouse goals came from Ryan Clubley (2), Ben Moore (2), Terry Warrior (2), Kieran Messenger, Scott Underwood, Gavin Cain, Adam Bragg and Chris Williams.
In another inter-league clash, though, it was an Egremont win over Workington as Thornhill beat Seaton Rangers 6-4, but no scorers were given.
An all-Workington clash resulted in Maryport Athletic’s 4-1 win over Flimby Club. The only goal recorded, though, was Lazo Rayner for the losers.
There were also games in the Workington Sunday League – with contrasting clashes in the Premier Division.
Fifteen goals punctuated the clash between Salterbeck and Sun Inn, while Dearham and Glasson Gardeners couldn’t find one between them.
Salterbeck haven’t set the league alight with performances so far but their 9-6 victory over Sun was a sign that they are starting to get back to form – well certainly as an attacking force.
Bobby Carter hit five of the Salterbeck goals with the others coming from Charlie Shaw (2), Nathan Brash and Tyrone Hill.
Sun found the net through Liam Parker (2), Daniel Pearson, Michael Thomlinson, Ewan Trestianu and Ian Johnston.
On the other hand Dearham v Glasson Gardener ended goalless. Dearham should have scored early in the game with just the goalkeeper to beat, but the player put through passed the ball to his teammate, and that gave the Glasson defenders time to get back and clear.
There would be plenty of post-match discussions in the Sun Inn on Sunday night no doubt. After the first team were involved in a 15-goal feast, but on the wrong end, the Athletic won their Division One contest against Highfield 11-1.
So two Sun-based teams were involved in games that produced 27 goals – must be some kind of record.
Mark Campbell (4), Brad Williamson (3), Daniel Dobson (3) and Cameron Jackson scored for the Athletic with Luke Harrison notching for Highfield.
The first round of the President’s Cup dominates the Workington Sunday League’s programme this weekend.
The games are: Dearham v Flimby Social; Highfield v Blue Bell; Northside v Glasson Gardeners; The Junction v Seaton Rangers; Salterbeck v Senhouse; Sun Inn Athletic v Maryport Athletic; Deer Orchard v JJ’s. Sun Inn have a bye.
