JUST three days after losing to Bartley Green Illey Sunday in the final of the inaugural Bromsgrove & Redditch Standard Shield, Black Horse got the better of their rivals to lift the WA Harris Cup.

Joe Adams put Horse ahead before Alex Dugmore equalised with nine minutes to go to send the tie to extra-time.

Dale Edwards and Ben Ellicott then netted the winning goals for Horse to secure the £500 prize money.

Meadow Park kept up their hopes of securing the Bromsgrove League Premier Division with a 4-0 victory at Rubery Athletic.

Liam Molesworth (2), Kyle Xavier and Jon Hutchins were on target for Park.

Division One leaders Rubery know the title is out of their hands despite securing a 3-0 victory at Wychbold RBL, thanks to goals from Paddy Behan, Shaun Smith and Lewis McPike.

Second placed Red Lion, who sit two points behind Rubery, only have to beat FC Highgate United tomorrow (Thursday) to snatch the title.

The other game in the division saw strikes from Richard Hall, Jack Steele and Richard Lynch fire Oak Tree Sporting to a 3-0 win at Highgate.

Matt Winsper bagged a hat-trick as Spa Athletic claimed a 5-3 victory over Awkies Allstars in Division Two.

Luke Rainbow and Karl Stoke also netted while Jason Gibbons (2) and Chris Fox scored for Allstars.

Meanwhile, Sam Smith and Steven Dipple scored in Studley Lions 2-1 win at Redditch United Sunday.

Daz Deaming replied for United.

In Division Three, second placed Bromsgrove Corinthians closed the gap on league leaders Stoke Works to five points following their 5-2 victory over Bromsgrove Academicals.

Alex Beck (3), Josh Mitchell and Ed Tear netted the goals for Corinthians while Works were held to a 1-1 draw at Cofton Old Boys.

Curtis Holdam bagged a hat-trick as FC Bromsgrove beat Stoke Prior 5-3 and Arrow Valley enjoyed a 4-0 victory over Meadow Park Youth.

Elsewhere, in an eight-goal thriller Millfield Rovers Reserves and Rubery Legends shared the spoils in a 4-4 draw.

Ash Roland (2), Danny Hiles and James Ward were on target for Rovers; Chris Gee (2), Jahmel Trevis and Jamie Taylor for Legends.
