TABLE-TOPPERS Rawcliffe suffered a York Minster Engineering League first division setback following last-minute agony at Pocklington Town seconds.

An own goal and a tremendous Dan Zambelli strike gave the visitors every chance of leaving with a point, but Tom Reay’s brace and Jake Dunham’s effort swung the game in Town’s favour.

The two teams continue to be separated by Tockwith, who defeated Harrison Signs 3-0 with Mario Campagna, Jim Umpleby and Rob Thackray all netting for the hosts.

A deflected Jordan Green shot in stoppage time broke the deadlock and handed Easingwold Town all three points at Riccall United.

Luke Crowther (2) and Jonathan Wileman were the marksmen as Thorpe United earned a point from their 3-3 draw with Cliffe, for whom Tom Grundy (2) and Jack Ward were on target.

Brooklyn gained a 3-2 success at Wilberfoss to climb above their opposition and out of the drop zone.

Daniel Clipson and Kieran Harris both hit hat-tricks, meanwhile, as Haxby Town continued their domination of division two with a 9-0 triumph over Heslington.

Strikes by Josh Leeming, Tom Barnes and Adam Chaplin made up the rest of their haul.

Strensall remain five points behind the leaders following their 5-1 home win over Heworth.

Danny Franks (3), Ali Bell and Jason Heslop were on Strensall’s scoresheet.

Huby United trailed 3-1 at half-time to Civil Service and, despite a much better showing in the second period, they still came up short, losing 4-3.

Liam Bartlett, Josh Parker, Joe Mason and George Jackson found the target for the visitors.

In division three, Danny Cates, Lee Dutton, Liam Keenaghan and Adam Brooke were the marksmen for Rufforth United as they made it five wins from six with a 4-2 triumph at Selby Olympia.

Ben Bloxham and Matty Snell hit the target for Cawood in a 2-2 draw at Moor Lane.

Daniel Zimer and Chris McCluskie bagged for the home side.

Malt Shovel were 5-1 victors over The Raj.

Elsewhere, division four leaders Clifford suffered their first defeat of the season, going down to second-placed Stillington Sports and Social Club 4-3.

Brandon Carrick (3) and Paul Holmes fired the visitors to success with Henry McStay, Jon Darnton and Tom Deighton replying.

James Smith and Gianni Gabbiadini converted chances to give Wheldrake a 2-0 success at St Clements, while Tom Bateson and Gary Hardcastle were on target for LNER Builders in a 2-1 triumph over Huntington FC.
