Sunday Morning Football League: Chris Jackson treble boosts Hounds
10:34am Friday 25th October 2013 in Sport
Hounds made the most of some early pressure with Chris Jackson putting them ahead after breaking Wigginton’s offside trap.
Jackson soon had his second goal, punishing sloppy defending when lobbing the ’keeper from the edge of the box.
Hoppers had plenty of possession, though, and rued many missed chances, before finally getting a lifeline when Michael Clancey scored just before half-time.
The second half was similar, with plenty of pressure from the away side but Hounds’ ability to finish proved the difference as Jackson made sure of the points with a hat-trick goal on the break.
Four goals from Simon Houlder plus strikes from Adam Snowden and Martin Howson gave Bubwith White Swan a 6-2 win at Hemingbrough, a result that sees them move to within three points of the leaders in division two with a game in hand.
The home side responded with goals from Luke Zacharenko and Ollie Taylor-Bower.
Britannia dominated and went in at the break 3-0 up through Ryan Ferguson, Andy Kitching and Josh Tinker. Ferguson and Kitching completed the rout after the break.
Dark horses Marcia Grey made it four wins out of five by winning 6-3 at York RI 6-3 to move within three points of the leaders with a game in hand.
Top-scorer Alex Day put them ahead and centre-back Carl Massingham scrambled the ball home before the hosts hit back with a Dale Holding double.
Day then scored his second to give Marcia a 3-2 half-time lead and two quick goals on the resumption from Tommy Medd made it 5-2.
Substitute Paul Harris made it 6-2 before Steve Abbot bagged a late response.
Haxby Lions’ 8-1 mauling at FC Barlby saw them fall to the foot of the table.
Rob Smith top-scored for the home side with four, Louis Blackwell netted a hat-trick and Steve Wilkes completing the scoring. Billy Ross got the consolation.
Division four leaders Snaith made it six wins out of six to increase their lead at the top to nine points after winning 6-1 at Marcia Bishopthorpe.
Matty Whitaker and Joe Lock put them two up at the break and Danny Coult came off the bench in the second period and hit a hat-trick. Whitaker then scored his second, Marcia's consolation coming from David Doone.
Enterprise went into the draw for the League Cup third round after they beat hosts Dunnington 6-4.
The villagers opened the scoring through Dudley Cooper but Enterprise quickly levelled through Danny Murphy and they went two goals up after the interval thanks to a quick-fire brace from Chris Dempsey.
Dunnington pulled a goal back through Cooper’s second of the tie but the visitors went further ahead when Phil Hartley fired home at the far post, before Matty Pallister and Hartley, with his second, made the game safe before Mike Noble and Cooper, with his hat-trick strike, reduced the deficit.
