SEVEN second-half minutes proved fatal to Northwich Victoria's hopes of victory at Charnock Richard this evening.

Brad Lynch had given Steve Wilkes' side an early lead, but goals from Jack Gooden and Nathan Nickeas had the hosts ahead at the break.

However, a Jordan Darr brace and Gooden's second put the game beyond Vics despite Brandon Barski's late goal, with the game finishing 5-2.

Barnton were also on the end of a heavy defeat, going down 6-1 to FC Isle of Man at Townfield.

Jordan Monthe scored the Villagers' consolation goal in injury time.
