Tattenhall Vets topple leaders Blacon 3 — 1.

Tattenhall Vets kept their hopes of winning the Cheshire West Veterans League well and truly alive in a full-blooded top of the table clash against Blacon Youth F.C. at the Flacca on Saturday afternoon. A committed Blacon, playing with controlled aggression, dominated the first half. Strong with the ball and pressing hard without it, they bullied Tattenhall into errors and took a deserved lead into half-time. Tattenhall upped their work rate after the break and gradually forced themselves back into the game. They evened things up when manager Stu Taylor bundled home a goalmouth scramble. Blacon, who couldn't keep up the first half tempo, still managed to strike the woodwork three times. Gaps were however beginning to appear in their formerly solid defence giving Pete Powell the chance to latch onto a tidy through ball from an onside Matt O'Sullivan to fire Tattenhall into the lead. Blacon fought hard for an equaliser but with men committed forward allowed a once again onside Matt O'Sullivan to run onto an Andy Clelland pass and guide the ball round the keeper.
Blacon still hold the advantage in the table, but Tattenhall Vet's dream of securing the county title in their first season in the competition looks a step closer to reality.
