Stone Dominoes recorded their second win in a row, after a fine second half performance clinched a 2-0 victory over local rivals Alsager Town.
After a fairly scrappy opening period, Dominoes came to life after the break and took the lead through Ashley Miller before Shane Reaney’s late strike sealed the victory.
Alsager has the better of the early exchanges, and created the first chance of note on 10 minutes as Elliot Ledwards long throw was fired wide by Leigh Skellern.
Jamie Marrow should have done better for Town eight minutes later, as he met Stone Keeper Dave Dyson’s poor clearance but volleyed well over the bar.
The home side continued to create the better opportunities, and should have tested keeper Dyson three minutes before the break as Matt Pearson’s cross was nodded over from close range by Paul Bowyer.
Stone came flying out of the blocks in the second period, and should have been ahead inside two minutes as Wayne Teague smashed Dean Smith’s corner against the bar from point blank range.
Teague tested Alsager keeper Tom Harrison soon after, as he met Glen Ray’s cross but the stopper did well to palm over the bar.
The visitors deservedly took the lead on 65 minutes as Miller ran unopposed from halfway before sending a dipping drive over Harrison and high into the net from 30 yards.
Jack Sherratt should have levelled matters for the Bullets five minutes later, as he turned Jamie Marrow’s knockdown wide from six yards.
Reaney sealed the points for Dominoes in stoppage time, as he was sent clear by Nathan Southern and slotted coolly beyond Harrison.
