BLACK HORSE lifted the BRS Shield, after a 5-2 win in the final against Austin Ex Apprentices at the Trico Stadium.

Odane Barnes’ hat-trick proved the difference, alongside Ricardo Richards and Daniel O’Sullivan strikes, whilst Laurence Martin and Dominic Martin hit consolations in front of the 142-strong crowd.

Namaste Tigers, meanwhile, ousted Chaddesley Ravens 2-1 to reach the Kidderminster Hospital Junior Cup final.

Over in Division 1, Hawthorns followed up a 4-4 thriller with Rubery Sunday Juniors with a 1-0 defeat to Austin Ex Apprentices, to lose further ground on the runaway champions.

In Division 2, Longbridge Social kept alive their title hopes by thumping Redditch Borough 7-3.

The second-placed side currently sit four points behind the leaders Quinton Athletic with two games in hand.

Cofton Old Boys edged a 5-4 thriller with Rubery Legends – after Lloyd Newman put on a one-man show for the hosts, scoring all five.

Broughsons were put to the sword by the leaders Quinton Athletic, in a 4-2 win for the visitors.

The leaders struck through Matthew Carter and Anton Gardner-Bennett braces, whilst Billy Garvey and Adam Thornton hit the only goals for the hosts.

Solihull Moors Sunday side edged Meadow Park 1-0, whilst Chaddesley Pensioners were beaten 3-1 by SHTP – who had Dan Gaffney, Ryan Butler and Phil Guest to thank for finding the net.

It made for a six-point week for SHTP, who had also beaten Meadow Park days prior in a 5-1 win, courtesy of goals from Gaffney, Benjamin White, Ellis Walker and two from Butler.

In Division 3, leaders S O Goose dropped points in a 1-1 draw with Catshill – their final game of the season, leaving the door open for both Catshill and Bartley Reds Sunday to win the division.

James Duffy found the net for Goose, but Lewis Smith’s goal ensures Catshill’s title hopes are kept alive.

Bartley Reds Sunday also managed a draw, following a 2-2 stalemate with Stoke Prior, which could ultimately prove costly to their chances.

It sets up for a final-day title-decider between Bartley Reds Sunday and Catshill in just under two weeks time, with either side capable of winning the league with a victory.
