OLD Malton St Mary’s survived a scare to keep their premier division title hopes on track in the York Minster Engineering League - bagging a last-minute winner to sink Church Fenton 3-2.

The weather again took its toll on the league's fixture, with only three top-flight matches surviving the deluge.

St Mary's, already needing to play catch-up with their fixture backlog, did play, though, and their three points kept them on the coattails of leaders Wigginton Grasshoppers, assuming they win their three games in hand.

Defending champions Wigginton did not have an easy time at home to Poppleton United either, although they eventually pulled away in the last 20 minutes to win 4-1.

The hosts took an early lead when Jordan Holt converted a Tom Derbyshire free-kick, but Poppy levelled in the run-up to the break.

Late goals from Gary Newton and Matt Tiplady (2) sealed the points for Hoppers to keep them clear.

Third-placed Huntington Rovers led Dringhouses 2-1 at the interval thanks to an own goal and a Chris Dyson effort.

Despite valiant efforts from Dringhouses to level, it was Rovers who took the initiative again, star striker Dyson doubling his tally before Liam Flanagan converted to seal a 4-2 success. Liam Robertson and Joe Rawcliffe netted for the away side.

Dunnington, who sit fifth, progressed to the third round of the League Senior Cup after a 3-1 victory over division one side Rawcliffe.

Roberto Smith, Harry Lynn and Dan Barrett fired the premier division club to success with Jordan Bean replying.

The only game in division one saw Brooklyn collect a huge three points with a 2-0 triumph at Cliffe.

The win puts them clear of the drop zone and increases the pressure on both Wilberfoss and Harrison Signs below them.

Division one side Tockwith, meanwhile, enjoyed a fine 3-1 at Scarborough & District League big guns West Pier in the North Riding County FA Saturday Challenge Cup.

In division two, Haxby Town put their title ambitions back on track with a 6-3 win over Heworth Green. Free-scoring Josh Winn hit a hat-trick with Dave Fell, Kieran Harris and Adam Chaplin also making the scoresheet.

George Jackson gave Civil Service a half-time lead at home to Heslington.

A superb volley from Josh Parker made it 2-0 shortly after the break before Will Oram bagged a third goal. A magnificent goal from Wayne Jackson, playing in his first-ever competitive 11-a-side game, rounded off a comprehensive 4-0 victory.

Rob Nicholson struck for Huby United at Stamford Bridge but it proved in vain as the hosts went on to win 5-1

With division three leaders Rufforth United sidelined by postponement, the two chasing teams made the most of their chance to close the gap.

Second-placed Bubwith White Swan gained an 8-3 success over Moor Lane, with regular hitman Jamie Sedman picking up a brace in the victory. Patryk Zimer (2) and Dan Zimer found the target for Moor Lane.

Rhys Turbine's goal for Fulford proved little more than a consolation as Malt Shovel did their goal difference the power of good, triumphing 12-1.

Division four table-toppers Clifford put eight past LNER Builders without reply. Wayne Grainge and Tom Deighton both hit doubles to add to strikes from Matthew Wormleighton, James Stuart, Cameron Gomersall and Ethan MacPherson.

Michael Kay, Ben Exall and Paul Holmes netted for Stillington Sports & Social Club in their 3-0 win over Swinton AFC.
