CITY of York Hockey Club Men I suffered another high-scoring defeat to Formby in the North League premier division.

In November, Formby beat City 7-5, and this time scored twice late on to secure a 5-4 win.

City struggled to play their way into the game and ended the first half 3-1 with Formby scoring a stroke, a penalty corner and a field goal. York rallied with a sensational solo effort from Tom Feasby.

After half-time, York continued to play their way back into the game, taking a 4-3 lead through Rob Bradley-Consitt, another Feasby goal and Rupert Bayliss.

Unfortunately for York, defensive errors cost them and two late strokes gave the game to Formby.

City of York II played out a high-scoring draw at Slazengers in east division three.

Danny Ellwood, James Fitton (2) and Rob Newton (2) were on target in the 5-5 draw.

One of Newton' strikes was particularly impressive. He took the ball around six players before finishing.

City of York III returned to the top of Yorkshire League premier division with a 6-1 victory over club-mates City of York IV.

The fourths' Henry Birchall opened the scoring but the thirds hit back through man-of-the-match James Harrison (3), Russell Bowry, Ben Gregory and Alfie Spouse.

Division five north leaders City of York VIII had Mitch Moisley on target in a 1-1 home draw with Leeds VIII.

City of York V, VI, VII, XI and X had no fixtures with it being a divisional 'slip week', which is a week free from fixtures so that teams can catch up on postponements.

City of York Ladies I lost 1-0 to University of Durham III in North Women's League division one.

On a wet and windy day, York had plenty of opportunities to score, with a couple of one-on-ones with the opposition keeper.

They just could not hit the backboard, however, and were made to pay when Durham netted. The York keeper got something on it but the ball trickled over.

No other ladies sides were in action as they also had a slip week.

There were some good results for City of York's Under-10 girls.

City of York I finished top of Yorkshire Girls U10 League division one following an unbeaten tournament.

Acomb Hockey Club Men II’s difficult run continued with a 4-0 defeat at Ben Rhydding IV.

The defeat keeps the Tangerines seventh and three points behind Minster city rivals City of York VII, who had no fixture at the weekend.

On paper, Ben Rhydding were a tricky prospect, and cemented their place among the top three in Yorkshire League division four north with the three points.

Acomb started well in the opening first 20 minutes but fell behind from their own short corner when Rhydding countered clinically.

Goalkeeper Mike Brown made several good saves to keep Acomb in the game, but shortly before half-time Rhydding doubled their lead from a short corner.

The visitors held out under pressure for much of the second half but struggled to create any clear chances and Rhydding inevitably added a third from another counter attack.

With a few minutes remaining, Rhydding made it four. Neil Hutchins made a brilliant block on the line but the rebound fell frustratingly to a Rhydding player who slotted home at the second attempt.

Acomb Men I had no fixture on Saturday. The Tangerines were knocked down to seventh in division one by Brigg II, who beat third-placed visitors Doncaster III 2-1.

Next up for Acomb is a trip to Driffield II, who sit in fifth place and five points ahead of the Tangerines.

Bottom of Yorkshire Women's League division one, Acomb Ladies were also without a game at the weekend.

Their nearest divisional rivals, second-from-bottom Chapeltown, were unable to make the most of their outing on Saturday as they were beaten 3-1 by Leeds Adel III.

Acomb's form has picked up of late and they sit just two points behind Chapeltown.
