TERRINGTON Glory came within seconds of ending Riccall United’s 100 per cent record and doing neighbours Old Malton St Mary’s a big favour in Saturday’s match of the day in the York Minster Engineering League premier division.

Riccall, lying second in the table but with three games in hand on leaders Old Malton, bagged an injury-time winner through Ryan Watson to prevail 3-2 – their 10th straight victory of the campaign.

Chris Rhodes had put Terrington ahead, only to see Gary Collier level things up just before the interval.

Glory led again early in the second half through Johnny Brown, but Tom Littlewood equalised with 10 minutes remaining and Watson stole the points.

St Mary’s at least maintained their four-point cushion at the top with a 4-1 win at Dringhouses thanks to goals from Richard Dunning, Scott Preston, Jon Newton and Damon Cox. The ‘Houses goal came from Dave Watson.

In division one, Malton & Norton lost 3-0 to high-flying Osbaldwick for whom Tom Young netted either side of half-time before Nick Lawrie completed the scoring late on.

Brooklyn are third after strikes from Karl Richardson – though it has also been credited as an own goal – and Andrew Metcalfe gave them a 2-0 win over Total Sports United, a side who had been on the rise.

The Ryedale team gave a much better performance than in last week’s York FA Saturday Senior Cup loss to White Horse Church Fenton.

Brooklyn’s defence of Mathew Webster, Karl Richardson, Sean Walker and Neil Alexander were under pressure early on, goalkeeper Andrew Slaughter narrowing the angle and spreading himself superbly to deny United the lead.

But the hosts garnered control in the lead-up to half-time and they began the second period in determined mood.

The midfield of Jonny Dunning, Ryan Boyd, Chris Seager and Andrew Philips began to dominate, with Philips being controversially deemed offside when putting the ball in the net.

The deserved breakthrough came when a long ball from Slaughter saw Richardson challenge his marker, the ball being nodded past the goalkeeper.

Brooklyn turned the screw. Jonny Dunning had an effort well saved and man-of-the-match Philips had another goal ruled offside before Metcalfe got the second, slipping the ball round the goalkeeper from Ryan Boyd’s through ball.

Elsewhere, Stamford Bridge lost 3-2 at home to York Acorn in division three, with goals by Connor Larner (2) and Lee Jacob.

Kirkbymoorside, meanwhile, made it nine wins from nine outings in division four with a 6-2 triumph at Cawood. Brothers Ryan and man-of-the-match Jordan Rivis hit doubles with Chris Hodgson and Sarjo Cham also netting. Jim Darlison bagged both Cawood replies.

Stamford Bridge reserves lost 2-0 to Pocklington Town’s second team in reserve ‘B’, Nick Daniells and Alex Fletcher the scorers, while, in reserve ‘C’, Brooklyn reserves fell to second-placed Thorpe 4-0.
