TWO of Saturday’s three Gordon Harrison Memorial Trophy second round ties went to penalties – with one producing a big shock.
Beckett League first division champions Sinnington were beaten by second division Easingwold Town 3rds 5-4 on penalties after the game had ended 1-1.
The Sinners, with Adam Stephens impressive, started well, creating good chances, and took the lead with an own goal before half-time.
But Easingwold, for whom goalkeeper Kyle Waite earned man-of-the-match plaudits, then got on top and equalised 10 minutes from time through John Day.
Easingwold’s successful penalty-takers were Andrew Metcalfe senior, John Day, Will Bell, Tom Horner and Dominic Woodcock.
Heslerton and Slingsby also drew 1-1 with Heslerton winning the shoot-out 4-3.
Luke Gibson set up Paul Richardson to put second division Slingsby in front, but Heslerton stormed back in the second half with Mikey Clark levelling three minutes from the end.
In the shoot-out, Scott Simpson, Fraser Hall and ‘keeper Shaun Suffield scored for Slingsby but Joe Brown hit a post and Glyn Brown sent his kick over the bar.
For Heslerton, Chris Bell, Clark, Steve Parker and experienced ‘keeper Gareth Driver were successful from the spot, while midfielder Steve Parker was the man of the match.
Slinsgby midfielder Brent Wilson was their star performer.
Union Rovers 2nds beat Settrington 6-2, with Richard Abbey (3), Luke Dawson, Paul Downes and an own goal on target, while midfielder David McBurnie was their man of the match.
Dec Copeland, Setty’s top performer, hit both replies.
