Edgehill Reserves made it three wins out of three in division two, while West Pier Reserves smashed five goals past Sleights Reserves in the third division.

Division two:

Edgehill Reserves 5 (Cummings 3, Prosser, Sill) Snainton 0

Liam Cummings scored a hat-trick against his former side as Edgehill Reserves maintained their 100 per cent start to the season.

Cummings scored twice against his old teammates in the opening period and completed his treble early in the second half to put Edgehill 3-0 up and firmly in the ascendancy.

Jason Prosser and Elliot Sill also found the back of the visitors’ net in a one-sided affair.

Defenders Mike Horsley and Leigh Watson impressed for Snainton despite their defeat, while Cummings was Edgehill’s man of the match.

Rosette 3 (Wardle, Russell, J Wray) Filey Town Reserves 1 (Brannan)

Rosette picked up their first league points of the season with a 3-1 home win over Filey Reserves.

Lee Wardle put Rosette in front and Martin Russell doubled the lead when he charged down a clearance from Filey’s keeper and the ball bounced into the unguarded net.

Town’s man of the match Dave Brannan trimmed the hosts’ advantage but Jamie Wray made the points safe when he fired in from the edge of the box.

Al Wray was Rosette’s star performer.

Rillington Athletic 1 Sleights 3 (Watson 2, Locker)

A double from prolific striker Ben Watson helped Sleights to a 3-1 win at perennial strugglers Rillington.

Watson outpaced the Athletic back four and slotted in the first before drilling in a second from outside the penalty area.

The hosts pulled a goal back with 20 minutes to go, but any hopes of a comeback were extinguished just two minutes later when Sleights skipper Christian Locker picked out the top corner of the home goal from distance.

Joe Ledley was man of the match for the Whitby side after an impressive display in the midfield engine room.

Cayton 0 Flixton 0

Cayton and Flixton played out a drab goalless draw in a game where chances were at a premium and both defences remained firmly on top throughout.

Central defender Daz Jones starred for Cayton.

Division three:

West Pier Reserves 5 (Speight 2, Brown, Spivey, Scotter) Sleights Reserves 1

West Pier Reserves ran out convincing winners at home to new boys Sleights Reserves.

Rob Speight netted a double and was joined on the scoresheet by Ben Brown, Joel Spivey and Jamie Scotter.

Defender Martin Young impressed for Pier in a game that they led 4-0 at half-time.

Cayton Reserves 1 (Whitelaw) Whitby RUFC 3 (Horton, Jobling, Ross)

A goal from inside his own half by defender Stu Horton set Whitby RUFC on their way to a comfortable success at Cayton Reserves.

Horton’s stunning long-range strike gave the away side the lead with 20 minutes on the clock and it was 2-0 just before half-time when Paul Jobling finished off a flowing team move.

Ste Ross added a third after the re-start and although Jamie Whitelaw beat the Rugby Club offside trap and pulled a goal back with 15 minutes to go it wasn’t enough to spark a Cayton fightback.

Whitby boss Steve Mothersdale picked out goalcorer Horton as his side’s man of the match.

Falsgrave Reserves 1 Athletico2B 3 (Kevan 2, May)

Three long-range strikes helped Athletico2B to maximum points at Falsgrave Reserves.

Ross Kevan twice finished impressively before a 25-yard half-volley from the left foot of Kyle May saw the visitors go into half-time 3-0 up.

Falsgrave pulled a goal back late on and but for a string of saves by Athletico man of the match Sam Hart they could well have taken something from the game.

Commercial 3 (Millson 2, Riley) Westover Reserves 2 (O’Flanagan, Aitken)

A man of the match performance from Chris Millson fired Commercial to victory over Westover Reserves.

Millson netted twice and Macauley Riley also registered for the newcomers, while Sam O’Flanagan and Jordan Aitken were on target for Westover.

Scalby v Newlands Reserves in division two and Scalby Reserves v Ayton Reserves in division three were both postponed due to no referee.
