Football: Old Malton St Mary’s in form but Terrington Glory find new nemesis
1:15pm Wednesday 27th February 2013 in Sport
OLD Malton St Mary’s continued their good run with a 5-2 win over battling Poppleton to stay third in the York Minster Engineering League premier division.
However, the Ryedale side, with eight games left, remain 11 points behind leaders Dunnington, who also have two games in hand.
Dunnington edged the top-of-the-table clash with Wigginton Grasshoppers to strengthen their position at the summit.
After a goalless first half, Liam Preston’s opener for Old Malton was cancelled out by Joe Dale as struggling Popp put in a spirited performance.
St Mary’s then took control as Jon Newton – scoring for the fourth game on the bounce – restored their lead before Darren Dunning netted twice with Tom Fenwick adding a fifth late on. Danny Temple scored Poppleton’s second.
Robin Bedford proved Terrington Glory’s nemesis as he scored all of Copmanthorpe’s goals in their 4-2 home win over the Glory boys.
Dan Bulmer and man-of-the-match Jordan Grose replied for the mid-table Ryedale outfit. Cop are fourth and can leapfrog St Mary’s by winning their game in hand.
Malton & Norton closed the gap to the division one summit to four points – and with a game a hand – after winning their top-of-the-table clash against leaders Aviva.
Liam Burdett put the hosts ahead at the break before goals from Ryan Rivis and Simon Reeves confirmed an important 3-0 win.
St Clement’s and Church Fenton White Horse remain on their coattails in a tight promotion race.
Amotherby & Swinton put some space between themselves and the drop zone after they registered their first home win of the season, coming back from a Jon Wileman strike to beat Hemingbrough 5-1.
Jonny Dunning, Andy Philips (2), George Moore and Mike Linsley hit the goals as Amotherby overcame the disappointment of losing to Ryedale rivals Malton & Norton last week.
Hemingbrough had taught A&S a lesson when the sides met in January and an error from skipper Stevie Clay allowed them to take the lead in this game too, albeit against the run of play.
However, the hosts replied instantly as Ryan Boyd’s free-kick saw Dunning head home.
Then Boyd won the ball in midfield and sent top-scorer Philips through to score. Amotherby dominated the rest of the half and made it 3-1 when man-of-the-match Simon Wall’s long ball found Philips, who rounded the goalkeeper.
Amotherby started the second half like they ended the first, full of confidence.
Moore got on the scoresheet after a bursting free and tapping in the rebound after seeing his initial strike well saved.
Sub Linsley then netted with a bullet header from a Boyd corner to round off the victory.
Stamford Bridge lost 5-0 to division two leaders Osbaldwick, Mike Whitley hitting a hat-trick.
