2:30pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in Sport
Kirbymoorside reserves and Sinnington both maintained their 100 per cent records in the first division of the newitts.com Beckett League with wins at Rosedale and Bagby & Balk respectively.
Kirbymoorside ran out 7-0 winners for the second week running with goals from man-of-the-match Reece Piercy scoring a hat-trick and Jack Dowson and Aaran Rivis adding braces.
Sinnington saw off a depleted Bagby side 2-0 with first-half goals from David and Stuart Wilkinson.
Easingwold Town 3rds top the second division as they comfortably beat Snainton reserves 5-0 on Saturday, with the scoring from Brandan Carrick (2), Tom Horner, Callum Abbiss and an own goal.
In midweek, Easingwold Town 3rds eased to a 6-0 victory over Slingsby with goals scored by Ben Till, Gary Goodwin, Andrew Metcalfe senior, Richard Bryan and man-of-the-match George Elliott – the York City Knights rugby league player.
Wombleton Wanderers visited Kirkdale United and strolled to a 7-1 win. Goals came from man-of-the-match Josh Tateson who netted a treble, Jake Dennison with two, Luke Tateson and Tom Ellis. Graham Atkinson scored for Kirkdale.
Union Rovers reserves won 6-0 in midweek against Settrington. Shane Olley bagged a hat-trick alongside his man-of-the-match award. Ryan Cooper got a brace and Zak Holmes also scored.
Slingsby recovered from a midweek defeat to beat Pickering Knights 4-1 on Saturday. Scott Simpson scored twice alongside goals from Luke Gibson and Fraser Hall. Tom Ward had levelled for Pickering Knights.
Snainton reserves won a 3-2 thriller against Rillington Athletic reserves in midweek, with Paul Rennard scoring all three for the victors.
Snaiton went two up, their second being a sliced cross which ended up in the top corner. Good passing led a Phil Horton reply, netting from the rebound after his initial shot was saved, but Snainton caught the defence asleep again to go 3-1 ahead.
Rillington, with Lee Oxendale as man of the match, stepped up a gear and were the better team in second half, Horton slotting home again.
Heslerton reserves beat Norton United 2-1, with Nathan Kirby and Peter Tiffany on target for Heslerton and Joe Witty replying for Norton.
The first round of the Gordon Harrison Memorial Trophy saw holders Gillamoor fall 3-1 at the first hurdle to Heslerton. Josh Beach opened the scoring for Heslerton and, despite Sam Knowles equalising, Heslerton came away with victory as man-of-the-match Steve Parker and Simon Oxendale netted.
Settrington won on penalties after their tie against Norton United had ended goalless. Extra time is no longer played in these cup ties so the game went straight to a shoot-out, and it was Nicky Bell who held his nerve to score the winning penalty after Settrington goalkeeper Victor Kovacs had saved Norton’s fifth spot kick.
The first round also saw Thornton-le-Dale take on their reserves with the former winning 3-0. Man-of-the-match David Elliott scored twice and a Martin Welford own goal sealed victory.
Wombleton Wanderers battled to a 2-1 win over Duncombe Park. Wombleton took the lead through Jake Dennison before Kieran Johnson saw red for Duncombe. Tom Ellis doubled Wanderers’ lead and, despite a Jack Chadwick goal, Wombleton held on.
Rillington Athletic reserves came from 2-0 down to progress into the second round with a 3-2 win over Kirkdale United. Two goals from star performer James Harper were not enough for Kirkdale as Tom Everitt, Simon and Ross Leckenby put Rillington through.
Union Rovers edged out second division side Heslerton reserves 4-2. Dean Sleightholme and Ben Webster each bagged braces to condemn Liam Bradley and Sam Miller’s earlier efforts.
