Baris NCEL 2012/13 Match Review #11
9th September, 2012
Tadcaster Albion will fly the flag for the Baris NCEL in the Second Round Qualifying of the FA Cup with Budweiser after their 3-0 home win over Holker Old Boys on Saturday.
The Brewers found themselves in control of the encounter against their North West Counties League opponents with two quickfire goals from Steven Jeff and Callum Ward just after the half-hour mark.
Ward then made sure there was no late comeback with his second and his side's third with three minutes remaining.
Our other three sides, meanwhile, bowed out of the competition to higher-ranked Evo-Stik League Northern Premier teams.
Steve Phillips' 67th-minute strike was to no avail for Retford United as they went down 2-1 at home to New Mills, Eccleshill United were beaten 2-0 by visitors North Ferriby United and Maltby Main lost 8-1 at Curzon Ashton.
The top of the Premier Division has become tighter after none of the top five at the start of play won.
Leaders Parkgate went down to a 3-2 defeat at home to Staveley Miners Welfare but still remain top of the pile.
Janni Lipka had given them an early lead and Nathan Forbes-Swindells doubled their advantage at the start of the second period.
But, Staveley fought back with goals from Joe Thornton and Martin Brissett before Ryan Damms gave them an unlikely victory with three minutes remaining.
Parkgate stay ahead of second-placed Worksop Parramore, who were held to a 4-4 draw at home to third-placed Scarborough Athletic, on goal difference.
Joel Ramm had put the visiting Seadogs ahead on 21 minutes but Lee Holmes, William McGhie and Lee Whittington put the hosts in a seemingly commanding position by the interval.
Tom Adams pulled one back for Scarborough, Jamie Smith restored the Parras' two-goal lead but Andrew Milne and Matthew Plummer grabbed a point for Rudy Funk's side.
Brighouse Town had goalkeeper Tom Taylor to thank as they took a last-gasp point at Glasshoughton Welfare to remain fourth.
Liam Radford scored for Welfare on 25 minutes before, with the game deep into injury time, Taylor came forward to head home a corner.
Long Eaton United drop to sixth after a 2-2 draw at home to Thackley, Michael Armstrong rescuing them a point late on.
Barton Town Old Boys go above them into fifth after goals from Ashley Lattimore and Richard Medcalf ensured a 2-1 victory at Liversedge.
A Carl Stewart hat-trick helped Bridlington Town to a 5-2 home win over Arnold Town and the Seasiders climb into seventh spot.
Heanor Town won 3-2 at home to Armthorpe Welfare whilst basement side Lincoln Moorlands Railway continue to struggle.
They went down 7-2 at Pickering Town, Liam Shepherd and Liam Salt both netting twice amongst the Pikes scorers.
The Division One action began on Friday night with a 3-1 victory for Bottesford Town at Appleby Frodingham, who remain bottom after their fifth defeat.
Scott Alcock's opener and a Kyle Cook brace secured leaders Athersley Recreation a 3-0 win at Dinnington Town and they remain a point ahead of Louth Town.
Louth were 3-2 victors at Shirebrook Town who parted company with their boss Gary Castledine after the loss.
Clipstone Welfare are third after their goalless draw at home to Grimsby Borough ahead of fellow NCEL new boys Cleethorpes Town on goal difference after the Lincolnshire side's 1-0 home win over Hemsworth Miners Welfare, courtesy of Lee Stephenson's 24th-minute strike.
Teversal took advantage of an early bath for Rossington Main's keeper to win 5-0 at Oxford Street to climb into fifth, David Cockerill scoring twice for Jamie Hudson's side.
There were 2-1 victories for Knaresborough Town and Hallam, at home to AFC Emley and at Pontefract Collieries, respectively.
And, the spoils were shared at Bracken Edge where Yorkshire Amateur and Selby Town played out a 2-2 draw.
