3:46pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Sport
RYEDALE Hospital Cup holders Sinnington eased into the second round of this season’s competition with a 6-0 victory over Norton United.
David Wilkinson (2), Adam Stephens, Stuart Wilkinson, Toby Edwards and Luke Clemmit were the marksmen despite the best efforts of Norton star man Paul Entwhistle in goal.
The man-of-the-match award was shared between two-goal Wilkinson and Edwards.
David Elliott’s double-strike, following first-half efforts from Harry Kenworthy and Jamie Dennison, helped Thornton-le-Dale overcome Snainton reserves 4-0.
Defender Craig Barnes was the man of the match with goalkeeper Damon Beadle saving Snainton from a heavier defeat.
Bagby & Balk, meanwhile, secured a dramatic victory over Union Rovers seconds after forcing penalties following man-of-the-match Dan George’s last-minute equaliser.
Earlier, Rovers’ top performer, Phil Smith, had given his side the lead but he then saw Jonathan Kendall brilliantly save his shoot-out spot kick.
Oliver Brooks, Martin Kendall, John Martin and George all converted from 12 yards for Bagby, while Ryan Cooper was the only successful Union player with Richard Abbey missing the target.
In the newitts.com Beckett League first division, Rovers’ first team enjoyed better fortune from the spot as Paul Holder secured a 3-2 win at Gillamoor with a late penalty.
The hosts’ star man Patrick Bernstein had earlier cancelled out Nicky Todd’s opening goal with a 40-yard lob and Andrew Claughton gave Gillamoor the lead but Ben Webster levelled before Holder held his nerve to settle proceedings.
Visiting midfielders Chris Armstrong and Nicky Drew shared the man-of-the-match honours.
Substitute Tom Harrison earned Heslerton a 1-1 draw against Duncombe Park, who had earlier forged ahead when Mike Webster put through his own goal from a David Elkington cross.
Elkington and left-back Mikey Clark won their sides’ respective man-of-the-match awards.
In division two, Easingwold Town thirds stayed top of the table following a 5-2 romp against Rillington Athletic reserves.
Gary Goodwin (2), Dominic Woodcock, Richard Thompson and Tom Horner wrapped up the points with Lee Oxendale replying twice from the penalty spot.
Easingwold wicket-keeper Kyle Waite swapped one pair of gloves for another to star in between the sticks for Town, while left-back Aidan Horton stood out for Rillington.
Scott Simpson (3), Sean Keefe and Luke Gibson were on the scoresheet as Slingsby defeated Pickering Knights 5-0.
The joint man-of-the-match winners were Danny Nunwick and Glyn Brown with Josh Brittain the pick of Knights’ players.
New boys Settrington enjoyed their first league win after Gareth Thistleton (2), man-of-the-match Harry Thistleton, Richard Cass and Danny Lewis were on target against Heslerton reserves.
Dan Blanchard, Jay Bryan and Liam Bradley got the consolations in a 5-3 loss for Heslerton, whose Lee Timms deserved better.
