Scarborough & District Football League round-up
2:53pm Wednesday 20th February 2013 in Sport
CHAMPIONS West Pier ominously rose into second place in the Scarborough & District League first division after seeing off Ryedale Sports Club.
Filey Town still lead the table after beating Seamer Sports 3-0. But West Pier remained on their heels, leapfrogging Ayton, who slipped to third after dropping two points.
Pier won 3-0 at Ryedale. James Wardle opened the goal scoring with a 30th-minute penalty and bagged a second goal from an acute angle just before the interval. Steve Sheader’s 57th-minute goal sealed victory.
Phil Dickens scored an early goal in Filey’s game but the contest remained close until two late strikes from Ricky Tomlinson and Liam Sugden secured the vital points.
Filey are now eight points clear but Pier have two games in hand on both them and Ayton, who lost ground in a 1-1 draw at home to Westover Wasps.
Ayton took the lead just before half-time when Neil Fryirs crossed for Ryan Jackson to score, but Westover bagged a deserved equaliser midway through the second half through Sam O’Flanagan’s fine strike.
Edgehill moved up a place after a 4-2 home win against lowly Fishburn Park reserves thanks to goals by Tyler Richardson, Alec Coulson, Andy Noon and Aaron Jenking, with a penalty.
Whitby Fishermen stayed fourth after a 3-2 win at Eastfield St James.
Sam Bailey put the Fishermen ahead and, although Nick Hegarty equalised, the Fishermen took a 3-1 lead into the interval thanks to Peter Scaife and Neil Hart. Hegarty netted a second for Eastfield but his side could not find an equaliser.
Snainton bolstered their top spot in division two with a 5-2 home win against lowly Cayton Corinthians.
Josh Sands led the way with a hat-trick, with David Bell and Leigh Watson also on target.
Second-placed Falsgrave were held to a 3-3 draw at FC Rosette.
Richard Tolliday and Lee Drydale (2) were the Falsgrave goalscorers, with Jamie Wray, Joe Logan and Martin Hadrick responding.
Flixton beat Rillington Athletic 2-0 with first-half goals by Gareth Olney and Luke Chambers to maintain their promotion ambitions.
Division three front-runners West Pier reserves thrashed Cayton Corinthians reserves 8-0, Sam Garnett hitting a hat-trick.
FC Soba put a spoke in Sleights’ promotion ambitions, beating them 5-3 thanks to a Craig Rackham hat-trick plus a goal each for Matty Turner and Georgie Rose.
Ayton Reserves did well to win 3-2 at Westover Wasps reserves.
Ayton twice took the lead through Jon Graystone and Tyson Stubbings but Kevin Hodgson equalised both times. Ayton’s match-winner was Graystone with his second goal midway through the second half.
In the League Trophy, Scalby reserves from the third division beat second division Filey Town reserves 2-1.
After a goalless first half, Filey went ahead through Jordan Powell but a brace of Darren Arnott goals put Scalby through to the semi-finals.
