FC Rosette maintained their 100 per cent start to the new campaign with a 2-0 home success over Fishburn Park in Division Three.

Joe Logan was bundled over in the box as he tried to get on the end of a long throw-in, and the same player stepped up to pick out the bottom corner of Park’s net from the spot to give the hosts a 1-0 lead.

Man of the match Logan wrapped things up midway through the second period when he spun his marker and finished well.

Rosette secretary Bill Cammish said: “It was a good team performance from all the lads, and a comfortable win in the end.

“We created plenty of chances and could perhaps have scored a few more and while Fishburn played some good football they never really troubled our keeper.”

Goal Sports were another side to make it three wins from three when they hosted Westover Wasps Reserves.

Left-back Ed Burrows netted a debut goal and striker Kieran Friett also registered to put the home side 2-0.

Mark Bean volleyed into the top corner then Callum Myers finished nicely to level things up going into half-time.

Friett and Jamie Giligan restored Goal Sports’ two-goal cushion, only for the hosts’ keeper to punch the ball into his own net from a Wasps corner to reduce the deficit.

Friett completed his hat-trick, but Westover were not done yet and Rob Whitehead fired home via a post to pull the score back to 5-4.

A stunning goal into the top corner of the visitors’ net straight from the re-start from the boot of Dan Pollard wrapped up a 6-4 win for Mark Plumpton’s men.

Scalby Reserves picked up their first win when they overcame Commercial at Carr Lane.

Jeff Brader’s men took the lead after half an hour when George Wilson ghosted in at the back post to nod home Karl Hansell’s free-kick.

Commercial levelled when via a strike from distance but they almost fell behind again when Scalby’s James Ledden hit a post.

The second half was an even affair but the home side won it when Rich Simpson beat his marker and pulled the ball back for man of the match Billy Bown to slot home the game’s decisive goal.

League leaders Eastway Sports suffered their first defeat of the season when they were beaten in a seven-goal thriller at Sleights Reserves.

Sleights’ star man Tom Kilpatrick hit a double and Ryan Roe and skipper Mikey Dent also registered in their side’s 4-3 success.

Rob Clark, Corey White and Barton Newham were the Eastway goalscorers.

Itis Itis Rovers and Duchess advanced to the next round of the Trophy Trader League Trophy.

Itis Itis progressed courtesy of an extra time victory at Sherburn, Luke Jones bagging the wining goal to seal a 4-3 success.

Jones scored - and also missed a penalty - in normal time, with Neil Forsyth and Niall Gibb also registering as the game finished 3-3 after 90 minutes.

Liam Scott with a double and Paul Mills were on target for Andy Adamson’s Sherburn.

An 88th-minute penalty from JP Watson saw Paul McBean’s Duchess to a 3-2 win at Filey Town Reserves.

Watson opened the scoring early on and James Hughes then doubled the lead before the interval with a second goal against the run of play.

Nick Ellis and Joe Gage struck to level the scores but with extra time looming, man of the match Watson converted a late winner from the spot.

In the first round of the Coastal Shellfish League Cup, division two Falsgrave Athletic were beaten 5-1 at top flight Hunmanby United.

Darren Prince helped himself to a hat-trick, while a stunning goal from Cameron Dobson and a Dan Baldry effort rounded off a convincing victory for the Sands Lane club.
