West Pier beat Cayton 10-2 and Heslerton edged past Whitby Wanderers 2-1 in the only two fixtures to survive the inclement weather.

DIVISION ONE

WEST PIER 10 (Dobson 4, M Cooper 2, Speight 2, Bell, Reid) CAYTON CORINTHIANS 2 (Best, Venner)

Cameron Dobson bagged four goals as West Pier hit Cayton for double figures.

Dobson’s four strikes were added to by goals from Rob Speight, Dave Bell and Graham Reid, while Martin Cooper notched a brace.

Paddy Parke and Jamie Towse’s men led 4-0 at half-time and extended their lead to 6-0 before Cayton hit back, the away side’s goals coming from their man of the match John Best and Josh Venner.

Cayton could have added to their tally, but Pier keeper Steve Malone saved their second-half penalty.

Joint-boss Parke said: “It was a good team performance from the lads.

“Everyone did well and it was good to have Dan Jones back from injury, he’s been out for a couple of months and did well when he came off the bench for the last 25 minutes.

“Credit to Cayton as well. They grafted well and never gave up at any point.”

DIVISION TWO

HESLERTON 2 (Vasey, Blanchard) WHITBY WANDERERS 1 (Wilson)

Manager Dean Storry praised his Heslerton side after they produced a shock result by beating promotion-chasing Whitby Wanderers 2-1.

Wanderers beat Heslerton 9-2 earlier in the season, but weren’t fazed as they went in at the break 1-0 down thanks to Dan Wilson’s goal.

Heslerton improved after the break and pressed their visitors higher up the pitch, and they were rewarded for their endeavour when they levelled after 70 minutes.

Substitute Lewis Vasey started an attack on the right flank and finally received the ball back in the six-yard box before finishing well.

The home side went ahead for the first time in the match when another substitute, Dan Blanchard was played in on the left wing and managed to execute a precise lob over the advancing keeper from 18-yards.

Heslerton held on to collect the win and dent Wandreres’ promotion charge.

Boss Storry said: “It was a fantastic result, especially when you consider they beat us 9-2 earlier in the season.

“They deserved to be ahead at half-time, but we gave as good as we got and improved after the break.

“Mikey Webster was superb in midfield and Kevin Oxendale stood out at the back for us, but the whole team deserve praise.”
