Liam Salt’s Trafalgar beat title rivals Newlands 4-2 to maintain their 100 per cent start to the defence of their division one title.


TRAFALGAR 4 (B Logan 2, N Thomas, Exley) NEWLANDS 2 (McCoubrey 2)

Trafalgar edged past title rivals Newlands as Billy Logan bagged a brace.

Neil Thomas gave Traf the lead before Sean Exley made it 2-0 to Liam Salt’s men.

Drew McCoubrey struck to halve Newlands’ deficit, but Billy Logan made it 3-1.

Controversy struck when Newlands striker Ben Luntley was brought down in the area, but the home side’s keeper was only shown a yellow card.

McCoubrey fired in the pen to make it 3-2 and give his side hope, but as Newlands looked to get on level terms, Traf broke and Logan grabbed his second to round things off at 4-2.

KLOSTERS 13 (Scales 4, Garnett 3, Turner 3, M Vasey, Thomas, A Townley) ROSCOES BAR 2 (A Scott, L Scott)

Tom Scales scored four times and Sam Garnett and Matty Turner both grabbed hat-tricks as Klosters beat Roscoes 13-2.

The first half an hour was very even, Roscoes’ skipper Liam Scott netting a free-kick in the 20th minute to cancel out Turner’s second-minute opener.

Garnett restored Klosters’ lead as the home side netted five goals in 10 minutes to move 6-1 ahead.

Turner completed his treble, while Scales and Ashley Townley also struck.

Arran Scott pulled one back for the visitors just before half-time but the second half was one-way traffic.

Scales added three more goals after the break, Garnett bagged another two and substitutes Aidan Thomas and Mark Vasey also found the net.

FILEY FLYERS 2 (Sugden, Brannan Jnr) FYLINGDALES 3

Fylingdales picked up three points from their trip to Filey Flyers,

They away side led 1-0 at the break but Liam Sugden netted just after the break to level matters up.

Filey player-boss David Brannan Jnr then made it 2-1 to the home side, but Dales netted twice in the last 10 minutes to steal the points.

TENNYSON 3 (Tolliday, Ellis, Link) ITIS ITIS 6 (Laing 5, Watson pen)

Ian Laing smashed in five to help a depleted Itis Itis side to a shock win against Tennyson.

Tennyson led 3-1, their goals coming from Rich Tolliday, Nick Ellis and Kieran Link, but Laing’s five goals and a penalty from JP Watson handed them the victory.
