RYLANDS progressed to the quarter finals of the JB Parker Division One Challenge Cup with victory over Middlewich Town at Gorsey Lane.
A goal in each half from Liam Hayes ensured the Warrington side a place in the last eight.
Boss Dave Parr was pleased with the way his side dominated proceedings.
“I thought the lads who came into the defence did a great job and we controlled the game almost from start to finish,” he said.
“We were creative in midfield and lively in the final third with some good chances created, especially in the first half. We are delighted to progress into the next round and hopefully we can build on this good performance.”
Rylands first opportunity came when Joel Brownhill forced a smart save from the Middlewich stopper.
Minutes later the lively Jimmy Daniels had a header blocked on the line as Rylands dominated possession.
The visiting keeper saved again after 20 minutes when Lowe fired a shot from outside the area, before Andy Moor was forced to save at the other end.
On 25 minutes Rylands broke the deadlock when Hayes fired a low, left-footed drive into the net after the visitors failed to clear a corner.
The tie could have been put beyond the visitors’ reach had further chances for Brownhill, Daniels and Jon Priest been converted, but Rylands entered the break one goal ahead.
Middlewich enjoyed a spell of possession after the interval but were unable to fashion any clear-cut opportunities.
The visitors’ keeper then saved well from Brownhill, before Hayes fired his second of the afternoon from a free kick on 65 minutes following a foul on Ben Slater.
Daniels’ chipped effort drifted inches wide minutes later, before substitute Lee Dermody hit a low shot off target at the death.
Rylands: Andy Moor, James Sinker, Daniell Williams (Phil Harrison), Craig Smith, Chris Brown, Jon Priest, Alex Lowe, Liam Hayes, Ben Slater (Lee Dermody), Joel Brownhill (Kurt Emery), Jimmy Daniels.
