BEN Jones struck four times as York Minster Engineering League premier division strugglers York RI dumped last season’s finalists Sporting Knavesmire out of the Saturday Senior Cup 6-3.

There was nearly a perfect ten for 2017 winners Dunnington, meanwhile, with a well-beaten Cliffe only managing a late consolation.

A brace from Niall Smallwood and one from Dave Hartas earned Rawcliffe a 3-1 win over Brooklyn, while reigning league champions Wigginton Grasshoppers were made to work hard for a 3-0 win by Tadcaster Magnets as they progressed to the next round.

The deadlock was broken after 18 minutes when Gary Newton fired home from ten yards but Magnets came back quickly and Scott Collins’ strike whistled past Wiggy’s left hand post.

Jake Daunbery then dived low to his left to produce a magnificent save from Matthew Tiplady but could do nothing moments later as a headed own goal from a Newton corner left him with no chance.

An Eddy Clapham volley midway through the second half effectively ended the tie as a contest.

Scott Preston and Chris Nezai’s two first-half goals sealed a home win for Malton & Norton against Poppleton United.

Two from Danny Penrose and a Mike Hattee goal, meanwhile, earned Osbaldwick a 3-1 home triumph against Thorpe United and Sam Lake’s penalty proved sufficient to help Dinghouses progress at the expense of hosts Copmanthorpe.

Old Malton St Mary’s were given a first-round bye, along with Hemingbrough United and the two teams met in the premier division, with the former moving up to second in the table after a 3-2 away win.

Other clubs to receive a passage straight into the next round were Tockwith, Riccall United, Huntington Rovers and Wilberfoss.
