King William lose out on penalties at North Ormesby
King William’s North Riding County FA Cup ambitions came to an end when they were beaten 5-4 on penalties at North Ormesby.
The Ian’s Cars of Barlby York Sunday Morning Football League outfit dominated the first half, backed by a strong wind.
They broke the deadlock on 25 minutes when Mark Willoughby headed in from a cross at the far post. It was the only goal of the first half.
The second half saw the home side put pressure on the visitors’ defence and they were unlucky not to tie the scores with a shot that struck a post.
King William missed the chance to make it 2-0 when Mitch Carter broke away from the halfway line with only 15 minutes to go but was denied when the goalkeeper saved his on-target effort.
Ten minutes later, North Ormesby scored an equaliser to take the game to the penalty shoot-out.
The only game in the Ian’s Cars of Barlby Sunday Morning League to survive the heavy frost saw Selby Olympia come away from York Phoenix with all three points.
Olympia opened the scoring within the first ten minutes with a simple tap in from Dave Whisker.
They continued to dominate but could not add to their tally and just before the break the Phoenix levelled through Nick Horne.
In the second period, Olympia again enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and sealed the points with a Chris Thompson penalty.
