WIGGINTON Grasshoppers and Dunnington, who had both opened their York Minster Engineering League premier division campaigns with victories in midweek, played out a cagey goalless draw at Mill Lane in a game where clear-cut chances were few and far between.

The stalemate allowed both Thorpe United and Old Malton St Mary’s to draw level at the top of the table as they followed up draws with victories over Easingwold Town and Poppleton United respectively.

Thorpe made light work of Easingwold, moving into an early fourth-minute courtesy of a Mike Braithwaite goal.

Jean-Pierre Grenier then added two goals either side of the interval with Harry Brigham sealing a 4-0 win with 12 minutes remaining.

Three first-half goals from Luke Scott, Josh Bown and Ryan Boyd gave Old Malton a 3-2 triumph at Poppleton, for whom Ryan Mumford and Reece Holmes found the net.

Strensall Tigers collected their first premier division points in a 7-3 home win over Hemingbrough United.

Isaac Clark opened the Tigers’ scoring after just five minutes and the lead was doubled shortly afterwards when Jack Bell volleyed home.

Kieran Harris increased the lead from the penalty spot in the 30th minute before Harry Bissett made it 4-0 just before the interval.

Hemingbrough pulled a goal back following the restart but further Strensall pressure paid off as Isaac Clark added a second to make it 5-1 to the newly-promoted side.

Lee Bunce fired in from all of 35 yards before Hemingbrough managed to get a second goal back to make it 6-2.

Veteran striker Danny Franks then made it 7-2 before the visitors added a third to finish the scoring in a goal-filled game.

Dringhouses returned to form with a 6-3 win at Kirkbymoorside. Matthew Mulhearn (2), James Green, Liam Robertson and Cameron Hall all bagged for the visitors with an own goal completing their tally. Joe Harland, Bradley Magson and Oliver Varey hit back for the hosts.

F1 Racing and Tadcaster Magnets shared the spoils following a 1-1 draw. Dan Hickey and Scott Nicholas collected the goals.
