DIVISION one leaders Hambleton were made to work hard to maintain their 100 per cent record in the Fastpack York Sunday Morning League at Haxby Town.

Hambleton eventually overcame their opposition 3-2 to move three points clear at the top of the table.

Haxby’s Louis Wilson opened the scoring after neatly rounding the keeper and slotting home, only to see Jonathan Wileman level matters shortly afterwards.

Haxby then wrestled back control of the game through Lewis Clark but two goals in two minutes from Wileman and his brother, Edward, ensured that Hambleton left with all three points.

Hounds regained the winning thread with an 11-3 demolition of Bramham.

Gary Collier weighed in with five goals and was supported by braces from Ian Beckram and Jamie Wheeler, along with further strikes from Patrick Conlon and Jack Healey.

The win moved Hounds up to fourth in the table.

David Durham and Louis Goodwin netted for Rawcliffe United in their game with Walnut Tree but it was the division two pacesetters who emerged with a 3-2 success.

York Medics remain level on points with Walnut Tree following a 6-1 triumph at FC Pollington.

Anurjan Balendra, Robbie Britand, Jaseran Grewal, Elliot Jones-Williams and Martin Macrae all bagged for Medics, whose total was completed by an opposition own goal.

Jake Puntan hit Pollington’s consolation.

There was also cup action as the League Senior Trophy competition got under way.

Tang Hall WMC outpointed Thorpe United, winning 5-3.

Tang Hall’s marksmen were Liam Robertson (2), Isaac Steel (2) and Roy Page.

Matthew Mulhearn opened the scoring for Wigginton Grasshoppers in their game at Malt Shovel, a lead that was soon doubled by Ben Barker-Spencer’s excellent finish from the edge of the box.

A goal-filled game followed with Wigginton finishing up 10-3 winners.

The visitors were helped in their quest by a fantastic five-goal haul from James Edmond along with a further strike from Barker Spencer.

Cameron Mulhearn’s diving header and a rare Graham Ireton goal rounded off the scoring.
