Old Malton St Mary’s extend their lead at the top of York Minster Engineering Football League
With the majority of their rival teams in York FA Cup action this weekend, Old Malton St Mary’s took advantage of the opportunity of the chance to extend their lead at the top of the York Minster Engineering Football League premier division with a 7-0 hammering of basement side York St John.
Marcus Godsell bagged a hat-trick for the Malton side with Damon Cox, Darren Dunning, Dean Nuttall and an own goal completing the scoring.
In the only other top-flight game to be played, last year’s promoted sides met with St Clement’s running out comfortable 4-0 winners over Aviva.
A Scott Nicholas hat-trick separated the sides at the half-time break with Simon Kehoe putting the icing on the home side’s cake in the second half.
Philip Smith bagged a brace to help Tadcaster Magnets draw level on points with Brooklyn at the top of division one, following their 4-0 victory over bottom-placed Total Sports.
Daryl Carter and Ryan Ferguson were also on target.
Tockwith returned from their trip to Malton and Norton with all three points.
They posted a convincing 4-0 success that saw them leapfrog their rivals to sit in sixth position in the table.
The only game in division two saw a tight first half with Bishopthorpe edging Wilberfoss 2-0 at the break.
However, the second period was pretty much one-way traffic as Ben Jones hit an impressive seven-goal haul for the Bishops as his side finished 11-1 winners.
In division three, Huby United twice held the lead at Civil Service, only to go down to Dean Walker’s last-minute strike.
Ashley Innes gave Huby the lead early on before James Shaw levelled for the hosts. Ewan McNab then restored the away side’s lead before Shaun Corr again pulled Service level, allowing Walker to seal the game late on.
Melbourne propelled themselves off the bottom of division four with a shock 3-0 home win over second-placed Moor Lane. Shaun Elvidge (2) and Jamie Sellars got their goals.
Meanwhile, spectators at Wheldrake were witness to 12 goals as visitors Jorvik Blades ran out 8-4 winners. On target for Wheldrake were Declan Walker and Jason McLeod, who hit a hat-trick.
