CITY of York Ladies I remain fourth in North Women's League division one following a 2-2 draw at rivals and table-toppers Harrogate.

In an evenly-matched encounter, Harrogate were on top in the first half while York dominated the second and the spoils were shared thanks to a late equaliser for the hosts.

The teams were both strong and started the game well. Harrogate initially appeared to be on the front foot but missed a number of opportunities.

The first half ended goalless after entertaining end-to-end play, before a second half where York stunned Harrogate with their early counter-attacking.

After a superb passage of play, York worked the ball around the Harrogate defence and Ali Couttie beautifully deflected the ball past the outstretched pads of the Harrogate goalie.

York looked calm and in control but a lapse in concentration left a Harrogate player free to pick up a ball from the York keeper’s pads and slot the ball home.

City did not give up and continued to pepper the nervous Harrogate defence. A wonderfully struck ball found Katie Ramli on the post for a spectacular deflection to take York back into the lead.

York continued to defend well but a contentious penalty stroke award with 17 seconds remaining gave Harrogate a way back in.

Acomb Men I fell to their first defeat in four when they lost 5-3 at Grimsby in Yorkshire League division one.

The Tangerines sit sixth following the defeat on their longest away trip of the season.

Within the first 15 minutes, the Tangerines looked lethargic and conceded three goals as the home side's front line ran rampant.

Pete Greenwood set up Pete Hilton to net from the left side at close range almost immediately after the hosts had scored their third.

This gave Acomb more spirit and Jonny Brown slipped the ball to Greenwood, who arrowed in a second to reduce the deficit to a single goal.

But right on the half-time whistle, keeper Craig Brown was left helpless by the Grimsby 21, who netted his hat trick.

The second period saw more pressure from Acomb, who narrowed the difference down to one goal when Greenwood netted a penalty corner strike.

The Tangerines pressed forward and there was a period in which five yellow cards were issued, with two going to the visitors.

Acomb had some chances which went begging and while looking for the equaliser, they left the defence bare and the home side netted with seconds remaining.

Just before the break, Harrogate pulled it back to 2-2.
