CHURCH Fenton were unable to make the most of the York Minster Engineering League premier division’s top two being involved in cup action, as they slumped to a 4-0 defeat at inconsistent Osbaldwick.

The hosts’ four goalscorers – all under the age of 18 – were Isaac Clark with two, Dan Davison and Jon Paul Vass.

Dringhouses continued their steady climb up the rankings, turning around a 2-1 half-time deficit at Copmanthorpe to collect a 5-3 win and move to fifth in the table.

Oli Baron, Reece Maynard and Ellis Stephenson netted for Cop, but a Liam Robertson hat-trick and strikes from Matty Mulhearn and Jordan Outerbridge saw Dringhouses emerge victorious.

F1 Racing – who have twice conquered champions Wigginton in recent weeks – could not achieve the same feat against bottom club York RI, having to settle for a point from a 2-2 draw.

Institute went ahead in the first minute through Luke Richardson and held off the F1 barrage until five minutes from the break, when Adam Tiffany rifled home from the edge of the box.

F1 pushed forward in the second half and were rewarded when Tich Mashumba hit the target to make it 2-1.

A rare RI break saw Richardson grab his second to level the tie, and it took a superb last-ditch tackle late in the game to prevent them from taking all three points.

Alex Janes and Luke Wilkinson struck to allow Poppleton United to leapfrog their opponents following a 2-0 win over Tadcaster Magnets.

Division One leaders Tockwith suffered a 4-2 defeat at Easingwold Town, despite goals from Rob Thackwray and Jack Doyle.

Kirkbymoorside gained a 6-1 success at Brooklyn.

David Gardner headed the visitors into an early lead, and Jonny Brown tapped in to make it 2-0 after just eight minutes.

Brooklyn pulled one back shortly before the break, but Kirkby came back out all guns blazing, with Jonny Brown, Keelan Simpson, Jason Brown and Jordan Rivis completing the scoring.

Paul Moran scored five and Jonathan Wileman got four as Thorpe United won 9-3 at Wilberfoss to move up to fifth, while Neil Richardson struck twice for Harrison Signs as they gained a much needed 2-1 win at Riccall United.
