The hosts looked set to maintain their unbeaten start to the season when Rich Tolliday fired home, but goals from Rob Speight (2), Aiden Thomas and Ben Webster put Sam Medd's team in charge by the interval.

Speight completed his hat-trick early in the second half and when Thomas scored his second Scalby looked to be easing to victory.

But Johnny McGough's side had other ideas, as goals from Lewis Short (2), Tolliday, Mikey Anderson and Dave Crawford, who also missed a penalty, helped the hosts draw level after an amazing comeback.

Former Pier striker Speight returned to haunt his old team with an 80th-minute winner.

Webster was the man of the match for Scalby in central midfield, while his counterpart Gavin McGough was the star man for Pier, centre-back Clayton walker also impressing.

Falsgrave moved up to fourth place with a hard-earned 2-1 home win against Cayton Corinthians Reserves.

After a goalless first half Cayton went in front, but a brace of goals from lone striker Mark Reddy, in his first game of the season, earned his side all three points.

Reddy and centre-back Dean Cross, also making his first appearance of the season, shared the man of the match award.

Snainton earned a 4-1 win at Duchess to pull away from the relegation zone, Liam Cummings smashing home a hat-trick for the village club.

Sam Cooper also netted for the away side, with Rob Holt their man of the match for a strong midfield performance.

Luke Midgley netted the first-half goal to make it 1-1 at the break, with Shane Cavanagh, who was playing with a hamstring strain, their star man.

Westover Wasps boosted their chances of beating the drop from Division One with a 3-1 win at relegation rivals Cayton.

A Chris Hannam free-kick dipped over the Cayton keeper to make it 1-0 to Wasps at the break and the visitors deservedly doubled their lead after the break when player-boss Jamie Heritage won a tackle and the ball broke for Ste Molloy to score his first-ever goal for Westover.

Cayton were handed a lifeline when Adam Robertshaw bundled the ball home from a yard out when Jake McAleese's header looked set to hit the net.

Twenty miutes from time Travis Wood lobbed the keeper to seal the win for the Wasps, for whom Hannam was man of the match in a much-improved team performance.

McAleese and Ellis Howley were the only players to impress for a below-par Cayton side.

Seamer Sports 3rds' teenage striker Oli Parker claimed a superb 7-1 win at fellow Division Three strugglers Goalsports Reserves.

Ali Caw, who has played six times for Seamer's high-flying first team in the first division this season, scored the other two goals.

Kieran Elwell scored the consolation for a youthful home side.

Martin Coulson's hat-trick helped free-scoring Edgehill 3rds surge to a 9-1 home win against Hunmanby United Reserves.

Tom Scales also weighed in with a double, with ex-Pikes star Gary Hepples, Carl Hepples, Kyle O'Toole and Martin Cappleman with a thumping 40-yard volley completing the rout.

Jonny Hunter's penalty was the only highlight for United.

The mid-table clash between Fishburn Park Reserves and Eastway Sports ended in a 2-2 draw.

Kane Brannick opened the scoring for Park and although Eastway hit a goal either side of the break to take the lead Ben Braim's close-range effort secured a point for the home side.

Central midfielder Dom Wilson was the star man for Park.
