Rylands bow out, Eagle win in extra time
10:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in Football
LAST year’s Liverpool Challenge Cup semi finalists Rylands crashed out at the first hurdle with defeat to Liverpool Premier League outfit Pinewoods on Saturday.
The hosts took a two-goal lead, but Rylands were left feeling aggrieved when James Daniels’ effort was deemed not to have crossed the line.
Joel Brownhill raced clear as the first chance of the game fell to the visitors, but was denied one-on-one by the Pinewoods keeper.
With both sides playing attractive football on the 3G surface in Skelmersdale, it was the Formby outfit who took the lead in the 20th minute.
A loss of concentration allowed the hosts to take a quick corner and Pinewoods’ winger to rifle past Rylands stopper Andy Moor from the edge of the area.
Rylands found themselves two down on 32 minutes when Moor was beaten directly from a free kick.
Daniels then witnessed his effort controversially not awarded, lobbing the ball over the on-rushing keeper and wheeling away in celebration as it appeared to cross the line.
However, Pinewoods’ defender raced back to scramble the ball out and the referee’s decision not to award the goal prompted calls for handball and a penalty from the visitors.
Lee Dermody blazed wide after the break as Pinewoods held on to progress.

EAGLE Sports needed extra time to beat BRNESC and advance in the cup.
Ged McAllister’s double and strikes from Lee Boardman and Chris Quirk were enough to send Rob Hope’s side through.
