DRINGHOUSES failed to capitalise on York Minster Engineering League’s top three all being out of action at the weekend as they lost 7-1 at Thorpe United.

Formerly fourth in the premier division, Houses are now down to fifth after being leapfrogged by their opponents, who inflicted on them a second defeat in two weeks.

The loss of their keeper to a red card just four minutes in gave Dringhouses a mountain to climb.

Liam Robertson did manage to find the net for Houses but their 10 men were overpowered by a rampant Thorpe side, who had Paul Moran (2), Liam Brown (2), Josh O’Neill, Isaac Leach and Harry Brigham on target.

F1 Racing made it three wins out of four with a 5-0 defeat of Poppleton United. Matthew Chadaway led the scoring with a hat-trick, with Alex Clark and Dan Hickey also contributing goals.

Easingwold Town sit one place below F1 following a 6-0 defeat of Tadcaster Magnets. An own goal plus efforts from Jordan Green, Zac Lawrence, Alex Fenwick, Oliver Longbottom and Elliot Bird gave Easingwold the points.

Brooklyn moved up to second in division one following their 4-2 success over Cawood. Lysander Jones, Connor Pickering, Noah Jackson and Jamie Allen struck for the home side, with Lewis Hall and Matthew Ward replying for Cawood.

Haxby Town stormed to a 9-3 triumph over Pocklington Town. Tom Kilvington (2), Tom Mannion, Callum Marshall (2), Dan Clipston, James Smith and Paul Holmes collected eight of the haul between them, with an own goal finishing the scoring off for the hosts.

Bishopthorpe White Rose beat Stamford Bridge 8-2. Jamie Mackie fired in a treble and was aided by further strikes from Yusef Alade (2), Matthew Griffiths (2) and Eren Barker.

Callum Petch collected a hat-trick of his own as Malt Shovel beat Tockwith 7-1. Deacon Brace, Jake Raistrick, Luke Pearse and Thomas Butterfield also found the net for the visitors.
