Football: Luke Tateson stars as Gillamoor reach final
12:26pm Wednesday 6th February 2013 in Sport
GILLAMOOR stormed into the final of the Gordon Harrison Memorial Trophy after a 7-2 triumph over Bagby & Balk.
Luke Tateson (2), Scott Simpson (2), Daryl Rivis, Josh Tateson and substitute Sam Brooker were on target in the semi-final clash, with Martin Kendall responding twice.
The first half was an even affair with man-of-the-match Josh Tateson setting up brother Luke for the opener, only for Kendall to level from the edge of the box.
After the break, Gills took advantage of a strong wind at their backs with Rivis and Simpson netting before Bagby’s star man, Kendall, pulled a goal back from 25 yards. A Luke Tateson penalty and further efforts from Simpson, Josh Tateson and Brooker sealed victory.
Sinnington went top of division one after beating previous leaders Union Rovers 2-1 thanks to Wayne Moon’s first-half brace.
Steve Twamley responded for Union before Rob Atkinson fired a wayward penalty well over for the Sinners. It proved inconsequential, however, for the leaders who now face a test of their title credentials this weekend with a match against last season’s champions Kirkbymoorside reserves.
Adam Stephens was the man of the match with David McBurnie and Sam Hall impressing most for Union.
A Jason Brown hat-trick saw Kirkbymoorside reserves beat Duncombe Park 4-2, with teenage man-of-the-match Josh Butler also on target.
Park replied through David Elkington and Connor Campbell with their team-mate Simon Baun in fine form between the sticks.
Dan Simpson (2) and Billy Bown were the marksmen in Heslerton’s 3-0 victory over Kirkdale United.
Centre-back Ross Flinton took the man-of-the-match honours while midfielder Dean Coote was the pick of the Kirkdale players.
In division two, Union Rovers reserves leapfrogged Snainton reserves into second place thanks to a 5-2 win when the sides met.
Ryan Cooper (2), man-of-the-match Luke Dawson (2) and Anthony Taylor got the victors’ goals. Dan Bateson replied for Snainton, whose other effort was an own goal. Sam Wallace was their top performer.
Debutant Scott Dixon bagged a brace to earn Easingwold Town thirds a 2-1 win against Gillamoor reserves, Ashley Walker replying.
Centre-back Tony Raper was man of the match with Matty Durrant starring for Gills in his first appearance of the season.
Slingsby scored four times in the opening 25 minutes at home to Rillington reserves – Declan Copeland bagging a superb hat-trick and Luke Gibson also netting.
Gareth Thistleton replied before half-time, but the second half remained goalless as Slingsby goalkeeper Shaun Suffield made three outstanding saves to secure the win.
Copeland and centre-half Ady Holtby were Slingsby’s men of the match. Harry Thistleton was Rillington’s top performer.
Pickering Knights gave their best performance of the season to win at Heslerton reserves.
Adam Ridley, after good work by Cory Taylor, and Josh Fawcett put them 2-0 up.
Heslerton hit back as Dan Watson’s shot was headed into his own goal by Sam Featherstone, but, after Heslerton ’keeper Mick Norman superbly saved a Greg Fawcett penalty, Rowan South sealed victory.
Midfielder Greg Fawcett was still the Knights’ man of the match, Dan Watson getting the Heslerton accolade.
