LOWLY Westover Wasps reserves provided a shock in the only Scarborough & District League game to be played on Saturday.

The Wasps won 3-2 in a thriller at division three leaders West Pier reserves.

They stunned their hosts by taking a two-goal first-half lead with a brace from Jordan Shaw.

Rob Speight scored a fine goal to get West Pier back in the game, before half-time substitute Neil Thomas made his mark.

He was firstly involved in a collision with Westover goalkeeper Shaun Wood, who suffered a bad knee injury and was taken to hospital after a lengthy delay waiting for an ambulance.

Thomas then equalised, but, with 15 minutes to go, Paul Brunger scored a fantastic winner for Westover.

Scarborough league side Edgehill reached the semi-finals of the North Riding County FA Saturday Challenge Cup after shoot-out joy.

They switched their quarter-final with St Mary’s College to the latter’s Middlesbrough pitch as once again their own pitch was unplayable. The game ended 2-2 but Edgehill won 4-1 on penalties.

St Mary’s took the lead 10 minutes before half-time against the run of play, but three minutes before the interval Edgehill levelled with a fine goal by Ben David after good work by Aaron Jenking.

Two minutes into the second half, St Mary’s regained the lead, but Edgehill, after missing a few chances, finally equalised three minutes from time through Shaun Dodson.

In the shoot-out, David, Dodson, Danny White and Liam Cooper found the net for Edgehill, whose goalkeeper made two brilliant saves.
