Wigginton woe for St Mary’s
3:34pm Wednesday 16th January 2013 in Sport
OLD Malton St Mary’s will almost certainly be handing over their York Minster Engineering League premier division crown at the end of this season after losing 3-1 to one of the teams aiming to take it.
Second-placed Wigginton Grasshoppers won 3-1 at the champions to close the gap to leaders Dunnington, who were not in action, to five points with a game in hand.
It left St Mary’s down in seventh, some 17 points off the pace with 12 games to go.
The visitors led at the break courtesy of an early Jamie Wilstrop effort, although only the agility of ’keeper Michael Clancy denied the Ryedale side an equaliser.
Within four minutes of the resumption, Wiggy doubled their lead as Lee McQuade struck his 24th league goal of the season.
Scott Preston pulled a goal back within two minutes for St Mary’s, but Kev Butler got Hoppers’ third 20 minutes from time.
Stamford Bridge fell 4-2 to Strensall in division, with Jordan Elliot and man-of-the-match John Cavanagh getting the losers’ goals.
- HOLDERS Old Malton St Mary’s will host either Church Fenton White Horse or Dunnington in the semi-finals of the York FA Saturday Senior Cup.
The tie will be played on Saturday, March 16 (2pm).
The second semi-final will be between York St John University and either Huntington Rovers or York RI.
