Old Malton St Mary’ march on with fine come-from-behind victory
3:06pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Sport
OLD Malton St Mary’s twice came from behind to beat Wigginton Grasshoppers at Mill Lane and stay top of the York Minster Engineering League.
Josh Luckhurst gave ‘Hoppers the advantage after 20 minutes, but the sides were level at half-time after a contentious free-kick was dispatched in fine style by Darren Dunning.
The home team’s advantage was restored after 50 minutes through Scott Stewart, but Wigginton faced an uphill task after they were reduced to 10 men.
Danny Fogg headed a second equaliser for Old Malton before Marcus Godsell raced away to ensure Saints kept their advantage at the premier division summit.
There were high fives all round for Terrington Glory as they continued York RI’s topsy-turvy season by hammering them 5-1 on their own turf.
Ben Richardson and Danny Meade gave Glory a 2-0 lead at the interval, and both players doubled their tallies in the second half.
RI got on the scoresheet through Cameron Sanderson but their fate was sealed by a late own goal.
In division three, Tom Knowles was Stamford Bridge’s nemesis as he hit a treble to give Bishop Wilton the edge in a 5-2 success. John Cavanagh and Craig Hargreaves found the net for Stamford. Bridge’s second string team also fell to defeat, losing 3-2 to Riccall United reserves in reserve ‘B’. Kevin Kozicki, Richard Sowden and Josh Levitt all scored for Riccall. Darren Burke and Jordan Elliot replied.
Kirkbymoorside’s impressive start to life in the Yorkshire Minster Engineering League continued with a 4-1 division four success at LNER Builders – though it was marred by a late red card.
They initially struggled to get into their stride with passes going astray against hard-working, physical opponents, but the breakthrough came on 16 minutes, Ryan Rivis stabbing home from close range.
LNER, already restricted to long-range efforts only, were seen off more comfortably in the final quarter half as the Moorsiders, with man-of-the-match Martin Charlton tireless in midfield, went up a gear.
On 68 minutes, Riley Murray scored his first goal for the club and the game was made safe on 82 minutes as Jordan Rivis scored from a corner.
A reckless moment saw Shaun Smith shown a red card for lashing out with six minutes of the game remaining, before Jordan Rivis ran clear onto a through ball and rounded the goalkeeper to make it 4-0.
Kirkby were caught napping at the back late on as LNER bagged a consolation, but the Ryedale outfit’s 100 per cent winning record was not threatened.
