ACOMB Men’s I earned their first point of the season in the Yorkshire Division One by drawing 2-2 at home to Driffield II.

Driffield started stronger but the Tangerine defence of Stuart Baxter, Baz Whitfield and David Brown prevented Craig Brown being brought into any early saves.

Acomb started to put some useful plays together through James Tindall and Tom Brown, working hard in midfield and finding their wingers.

They were almost ahead when Jamie Robinson went full length to try and steer home a John Forecast cross but he just missed out.

With a minute of the first-half remaining, a move through Tindall and Robinson found Forecast unmarked and his shot went under the keeper.

Driffield came out after the break with good possession and equalised from a penalty corner. Within two minutes, they took the lead.

Acomb bagged an equaliser though from Tom Brown’s penalty corner strike.

With eight minutes remaining, a stray stick struck David Brown’s face leaving the Tangerines a man down.

Driffield piled on the pressure and were thwarted when they struck the crossbar. But, some sound defending ensured the Tangerines a first point from three matches.

Acomb II were however unable to match their counterparts success after suffering a 3-1 defeat at Bingley Bees.

A tough first period saw Bingley holding a lot of possession in the Tangerines half but strong defensive play cut the Bingley advances short.

The hosts managed to gain the advance with two goals in quick succession before the interval.

The Tangerines opened the second half determined to test Bingley and, with a goal from Man-of-the-Match Bob Unsworth, the opposition’s lead was halved.

Before the game was out, Bingley managed to push the Acomb defence to grab a third goal.

Acomb Ladies went to the top of division two after convincingly winning 4-2 at Chapeltown.

Four different scorers, Jasmine Cooley, Wendy Watson, Alex Wilson and Keira Woods, netted for the Tangerines.
