A dramatic last-gasp goal earned Cayton Corinthians Reserves a 3-3 draw from their second division trip to Goal Sports.

Tyson Stubbings cut in from the left flank and picked out the top corner of the visitors’ net to open the scoring for Mark Plumpton’s newly-promoted Sports side.

Jack Pinder levelled things up but an own goal put the home team back ahead 10 minutes before half-time.

Stubbings slotted home his second of the game to put Sports 3-1 up after 55 minutes and the hosts had plenty of chances to add to their lead but failed to take them.

Pinder scored again to reduce the arrears at 3-2 in the 75th minute, but with the 90 minutes up it looked like Plumpton’s men had done enough to earn the points.

That was until Pinder sent a free-kick deep into the home penalty area and Tom Venner struck to make it 3-3 with the last kick of the game.

A relieved Cayton manager Damon Cook said: “Credit to Goal Sports. I have no idea how we have come away from that game with a point.”

Elsewhere in Division Two, reigning champions Newlands Park Reserves made it two wins in three days with a 6-3 success at Snainton.

Jason Prosser opened the scoring for Park and Drew McCoubrey netted a hat-trick, including one from the penalty spot, as the visitors took a 4-2 lead into the break.

Stew Bates helped himself to a brace for Newlands, while Liam Cummings (2) and Michael McAuley were the men on target for Andy Holt’s villagers.

In Division Three, Itis Itis Rovers continued their winning start to the new campaign with a 5-0 triumph at Westover Wasps Reserves.

Sean Bloom put Rovers ahead when he fired home a free-kick, and the same player then doubled his side’s advantage before half-time.

Curtis Rose made it 3-0 before strikes from Ellis Wilson and Luke Jones made sure of the victory for Mike Barker’s troops.

Central midfielder Bloom took the man of the match honours.

Edgehill 3rds were another side to make it two wins from two games when they defeated fellow new boys Seamer 3rds by a 5-2 scoreline.

Tom Scales scored a hat-trick, man of the match Gary Hepples smashed in a screamer and Kyle O’Toole also struck.

Ollie Parker notched twice for Seamer, one of his goals coming from the penalty spot.

Eastway Sports got off the mark for the season with a comfortable 4-0 victory on the road at Scalby Reserves.
