THE Falcon Prudhoe flew the flag for the Hexham and District Sunday League by progressing in the county cup.
The young side put in a barnstorming performance to edge past Wallsend New Rising Sun 2-1 to make it to the next round of the Northumberland FA Sunday Minor Cup.
Division rivals Barrasford are also in the hat for the next round draw but they had it a lot easier as visitors Alnmouth Argyles conceded the tie!
In Division One, Haltwhistle Conservatives jumped to the top of the charts as they danced their way past Ryton and Crawcrook Albion to win 4-2.
Wylam are up to second spot after a convincing 5-0 success at Allendale, while Prudhoe Town put three without reply past Rose and Crown Bellingham.
Prudhoe Social Club's lead at the top of Division Two was stretched to five points when second placed Bardon Mill went down to the only goal to Warden Boatside.
The league leaders took full advantage, thumping Phoenix Chopwell 9-0 to make it eight league wins from eight.
Fourth placed Haydon Bridge Anchor defeated Swiburne Arms Stamfordham 6-2, while Acomb Welfare and Hexham Hearts played out an eight goal draw.
Division One's Hexham Phoenix breezed through to the next round of the Tommy Jackson President's Cup, beating Division Two's Dr Syntax Prudhoe 5-0.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
