Football: No thrills as Rillington crash out to Soba
2:59pm Wednesday 26th September 2012 in Sport
Scarborough & District League second division side Rillington Athletic crashed out of the Scarborough & District FA Junior Cup at the first round stage when they lost 5-0 to third division FC Soba.
All the goals came in the second half, through Liam Vasey (2), Terry Breckon (2) and Matty Turnbull.
History was made when Falsgrave Reserves beat Thornton-le-Dale in the first penalty shoot-out since new rules were introduced scrapping extra time.
Ryan Goodsworth put Falsgrave ahead after 50 minutes but Thornton equalised with a rare Danny Russell goal after 75 – with the visitors missing many chances to win it. It finished 1-1 after 90 minutes and the tie went straight to penalties, Falsgrave winning 4-3.
Shaun Gough was the hosts’ hero as he saved Thornton’s opening penalty by David Elliott and their fourth by goalkeeper Matthew Todd. Scorers for Dale were John Peel, Craig Sunley and Paul Simpson. Todd had saved Falsgrave first spot-kick, by Adam Martin, but could not prevent Andy Westwood, Ryan Goodworth, Shaun Hughes and player-manager John Chalk from scoring and setting up a second-round trip to Lingdale United.
Lingdale, last season’s runners-up, won 19-1 at Ayton Reserves and won 19-1, Luke Johnson leading the way with six goals, with hat-tricks also for Andy Smith and Wayne Skelton.
Whitby RUFC beat Scalby 4-1 at home, Ben Hogarth netting a first-half brace.
Holders Loftus Athletic beat Heslerton 5-0, with a hat-trick by Stuart Oswald, a superb header Jeff Morrison, and a strike by Ryan Douthwaite. Heslerton’s men of the match were goalkeeper Gareth Driver and left-back Mikey Clark. Loftus go to Kirkdale United in the next round.
Thornton-le-Dale Reserves crashed 8-0 to Sleights, having been only one down at half-time. Jake Faichney got four of the goals.
Norton United fell 7-0 to Goldsborough United, James Ward hitting a hat-trick. Will Spowart was Norton’s man of the match.
Edgehill Reserves won 9-1 at Falsgrave with Jon Cairns and Tom Scales bagging braces.
