Cayton Corinthians earned their opening win of the season in division of the Scarborough News Sunday League, while fellow strugglers Roscoes Bar earned a 3-1 home triumph against Fylingdales.
Cayton Corinthians 2 (Davidson, Collins) itis itis 1 (Laing)
John Best’s Cayton outfit claimed their first success of the campaign thanks to Danny Collins’ late strike, which sunk itis itis.
After a goalless first half, which saw the visitors miss several clear-cut chances, Scott Davidson forced the ball into the net after Josh Venner’s shot was only partially cleared.
Ian Laing shot home from 10 yards to bring the scores level in the 74th minute, but three minutes from time striker Danny Collins latched onto a superb through-ball from Mickey Dennis.
Man of the match for Cayton was centre-back Tom Sixsmith.
Roscoes Bar 3 (C Hepples, Scott, G Hepples) Fylingdales 1
Roscoes Bar claimed their second successive victory to ease away from the relegation zone, Fylingdales losing out 3-1 at Oliver’s Mount.
The home side started the game on the front foot and took the lead after about 10 minutes with a thumping strike from Carl Hepples.
Roscoes then pinned Fylingdales back for next 30 minutes and created some good chances, then just before half-time a corner routine that the hosts had worked on in training was delivered by Sean Rowley and headed in by Liam Scott.
The visitors had the better of the first 15 minutes in the second half and scored a goal to get back into the game and the Whitby side looked like they were going to get back into the game.
A through ball to Gary Hepples left him one on one with the ‘Dales keeper and his shot flew in off post.
Roscoes boss Lee Paterson said: “Sixteen-year-old Liam Rowley was our man of the match for a solid display at left-back, as he didn’t lose a header or tackle all game.”
Newlands 7 (R Cooper 2, McCoubrey 2, Moon, Fields, own goal) Tennyson 0
Newlands pulled clear at the top of the division one table after sweeping aside the challenge of Tennyson.
Drew McCoubrey and Ryan Cooper smacked in two goals apiece, with McCoubrey’s opening effort the pick of the bunch, a fine run and finish from the midfielder.
Stefan Moon and Kile Fields also netted for the home side, while an own goal had opened the scoring for Newlands.
Cooper was named as the man of the match for a strong display up front.
Klosters 11 (Fryirs 3, A Townley 2, L Vasey 2, Rose, M Vasey, Scales, Knowlson pen) Filey Flyers 1 (W Hunter)
Neil Fryirs smashed in a hat-trick as Klosters moved up into second spot thanks to an 11-1 demolition of visitors Filey Flyers.
Ashley Townley and Liam Vasey scored a brace of goals apiece, while man of the match Mark Knowlson netted a penalty, having changed the game after coming on as a sub up front. Also on target was Mark Vasey, George Rose and Tom Scales, Will Hunter having pulled the score back to 5-1 early in the second half.
Newlands Reserves 2 (Flisnik, Hannam pen) West Pier Reserves 6 (Weetman 3, Midgley 2, Bell)
Chris Weetman’s treble helped West Pier Reserves to a surprise 6-2 win at second-placed Newlands Reserves.
Jakob Flisnik opened the scoring for the home side after only two minutes, latching onto a pass from Shaun Wood.
Four minutes later Weetman levelled the scores, and his second goal, in the 20th minute, put them in front.
Luke Midgley then hit goals in the 25th and 35th minutes as Pier’s pressure paid off and they went 4-1 ahead.
Weetman completed his hat-trick to add to Newlands’ woes, but then Pier defender Jon Hyde handled a goalbound shot in the area and he was shown a red card and Chris Hannam fired in the spot-kick.
Newlands were on top for most of the second half, but Pier added a sixth goal to seal the win, veteran Nick Bell smacking the ball into the net.
Sean Hope was named as the Newlands man of the match, pulling off some great saves despite being the stand-in keeper, while Weetman was the Pier star man.
Whitby Wanderers 6 (Keys 4, Taylor, Marshall) Tennyson Reserves 2 (Mahoney, Spooner)
A second-half four-goal blast from Jericho Keys earned Whitby Wanderers a 6-2 home triumph against Tennyson Reserves.
Si Taylor opened the scoring for Whitby after firing in from a Jack Wilson cross.
Andrew Marshall headed in the home side’s second goal from a corner, but a Sam Mahoney free-kick put Tennyson back in contention.
The second half was the Jericho Keys show, as he smashed in four goals before a late consolation, a clever lob from the visitors’ man of the match Craig Spooner.
Star man Keys’ first goal came after a through-ball from Taylor, his second was a deflected shot from a Mikey Kilpatrick cross, and his third was a powerful shot after a run down the right wing. His fourth and final effort was a tap-in after Jimmy Landers’ thunderbolt shot had been parried.
