West Pier battled back from 2-0 down to claim a 4-3 success at Scalby.
Goals from Dan Virr and Ash Durham placed the home side in the ascendancy at Carr Lane in the first half.
The Scalby goals came from mistakes from Pier player-manager Johnny McGough and Mikey Anderson respectively, but the former fired his team up with a lively team-talk at the break and it worked a treat as they started the second period in much better fashion.
John Grayston halved the deficit after fine link-up play with Harry Ward, then Rich Tolliday levelled the scores.
The in-form striker Tolliday then fired his team into the lead for the first time with a great piece of skill and neat finish.
Harry Leighton wrapped up the three points with a fourth goal for Pier, Virr’s second goal of the game coming too late to save the villagers from defeat.
The West Pier man of the match award was shared between Tolliday and Leighton, while the star man for the home team was Callum Randerson.
