BEWDLEY Town's magnificent seven match winning streak was brought to an abrupt halt when beaten 3-1 at Darlaston Town.

Buoyant Bewdley began brightly enough when Dylan Hart fired them into an early lead.

But Darlo hit back to take the lead by half time thanks to a couple of Leon Taylor goals before Scott Stevenson wrapped up the points with a third in the 90th minute.

Second placed Bewdley have now slipped three points adrift of early season leaders Shifnal Town who maintained their 100 per cent start with a 1-0 win over Wednesfield courtesy of a Tom Hill goal.

Dynamic Dudley Town left it late before reeling off a fifth straight success with a 2-1 triumph at Bilston Town.

The Robins fell behind to a late second half strike from the Steelmen but refused to give up and grabbed a sensational victory with two goals in the last four minutes.

Lewis Taylor-Boyce combined with substitute Justin Nisbett to set up Owen Massey for the equaliser with the best move of the game.

Todd Perry then plundered maximum points when heading home from a last gasp corner.

The Robins climb to sixth spot as a result with games in hand over their rivals.

They were due to face Shawbury United this week before heading to Lichfield City Saturday for an important FA Vase clash.

Cradley Town crashed to their eighth defeat in nine games when they lost out at home to Worcester Raiders by a 3-0 margin.

Ironically Cradley had the better chances in a goalless first half, Dan Danks being denied by a great save from Raiders goalkeeper Chris Pinches.

However, Raiders raised their game in the second half and struck twice through goals from former Kidderminster Harriers and Stourbridge striker Ryan Rowe while Kirk Layton added a third.

The result means Cradley remain rooted to the bottom of the table but will bid to stop the rot when they host Darlaston this Saturday

In contrast, Dudley Sports did themselves a power of good with a much needed 3-2 win over local rivals Black Country Rangers.

Stuart Hillman was the Sports hero by netting a hat-trick while Oldbury based Rangers responded with goals from Babacur Suane and former Stourbridge frontman Kayeldon Brown.

Sports' success sends them soaring up to sixth from bottom spot while Rangers continue to slide.

But Sports face a tough test this Saturday with a trip to second placed Bewdley Town.
