Mike Barker scored six times as Commercial won 8-2 at Ayton.

Stephen Barker struck early on to put Commercial ahead and a quick-fire treble from Mike Barker made it 4-0 by half-time.

Sam Wallace could have reduced the arrears for Ayton but missed twice from the penalty spot just before the interval.

His first effort was saved and although he was given another chance from 12 yards due to a visiting defender encroaching, he planted his second spot kick against the crossbar.

Wallace did eventually get his name on the scoresheet shortly after half-time and when Ayton were awarded another penalty Tyson Stubbings took over the responsibility and made no mistake.

That was as good as it got for the home side though as Mike Barker ran riot late on adding a further three goals before substitute Oliver Barron made it 8-2 in the closing stages.

Commercial boss Geoff Osguthorpe picked out Mike Barker, debutant Adam James and 17-year-old Jamie Stewart as his side’s star men, while Robbie Gill played well in the centre of the Ayton midfield.

Trafalgar Reserves 10 (J Pinder 4, Palmer 3, Benfaied, Bowman, J Wray) Fylingdales Reserves 0

Jack Pinder continued his impressive form in front of goal, netting four times to set Traf Reserves on their way to a second successive 10-0 victory.

Louis Palmer helped himself to a hat-trick and Karim Benfaied, Chris Bowman and Jamie Wray also found the back of the struggling village side’s net.

A tireless display by striker Jamie Wray earned him Traf’s man of the match award while Anthony Craig produced a good performance in the Dales midfield.

West Pier Reserves 4 (Weetman 2, Stockell, Midgley) Castle 1 (Hyde o.g.)

West Pier Reserves fought back from a goal down to secure a 4-1 home success over Castle.

Jon Hyde’s own goal handed the away side the lead after an even opening 30 minutes, but Chris Weetman netted twice to put Pier in the ascendancy by half-time.

Darren Swinger hit the Castle crossbar before Jon Stockell marked his debut by smashing in a 20-yard strike for 3-1.

Luke Midgley added a fourth goal late on when he chipped home a rebound after his initial effort had been saved.

Left-back Chris Ryan put in a good shift for the victors.

Heslerton 3 (Thompson 2, Peel) Newlands Reserves 7

Heslerton threw away a 3-1 half-time advantage to lose 7-3 at home to Newlands Reserves.

A Dave Thompson brace and a Tom Peel strike saw Heslerton go into the interval looking comfortable but six second-half goals from the visitors ensured Dave Gaddass’ men headed back down the A64 with all three points.

Heslerton right-back Lewis Vasey and right-winger Peel shared the man of the match award.
