Riccall got back into the game on 46 minutes when Wayne Brook converted a penalty.
They were reduced to nine men on 60 minutes after a foul in the box and Wigginton’s Lee Stewart netted from the spot .
On 75 minutes, Riccall pulled another goal back but three minutes later Stewart beat the offside trap, made a fine solo run and slotted the ball home.

However, division one side Church Fenton equalised ten minutes later to force penalties.
Cliffe will take on Fulford United in the final of the York FA Saturday Junior Cup.
Fulford’s Danny Hall was the match-winner at Thorpe United. He found the top corner of the net on 22 minutes with a turn and volley from 30 yards out.
