Only one game survived the wintry weather over the weekend as Heslerton were dumped out of the East Riding FA Vice President’s Cup at the last 16 stage.

Heslerton boss Dean Storry was clearing ice and snow off his team’s pitch at 7.30am in order for their cup clash against Halltech FC from West Hull to go ahead.

With the pitch eventually in a playable state, his side then took the lead after 15 minutes when Dan Blanchard latched onto Josh Beach’s ball and slotted in comfortably.

Halltech soon levelled and then quickly took the lead just before the break to turn the game on its head.

It was soon 3-1 after the break, but the home side were back in the contest when Aiden Horton was pushed over in the box from a corner and the referee pointed to the spot.

Billy Bown confidently stroked home the resulting penalty.

Any hopes Heslerton had of getting back on level terms quickly evaporated when their visitors hammered in two quick strikes in five minutes to make it 5-2 and put the result beyond any doubt.

Disappointed boss Storry said: “They were a very good side, especially going forward and we just weren’t at the races.

“It’s hard to single anyone out, nobody really played very well and we weren’t really at the races.”

Storry is hoping his side can get back to winning ways against Commercial next week.

He added: “We’ve had a good season so far, despite a dip in results over the past few weeks.

“We’ll be looking to put that right next week against Commercial. We need to get a win under our belts.”
