Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2016/17 #53
Pontefract Collieries climbed to the top of the Toolstation NCEL Division One table whilst there was County Cup success for Bridlington Town and Hall Road Rangers in a curtailed Saturday fixtures list.
Bad weather meant that only one Premier Division match survived with Garforth Town moving up into eleventh spot after a 4-1 home victory over Bottesford Town.
Lee Turner put the Miners ahead on 34 minutes before a first half injury time penalty from Paul Grimes led to the scores being level at the interval.
But, Turner got his and Garforth's second soon after the restart and then Mitchell Hamilton and a Mark Simpson penalty made sure of the win.
Christopher Jackson struck twice as Pontefract won 5-2 at home to Teversal in Division One to replace AFC Emley at the summit.
Christopher Wood, Kane Reece and Michael Dunn also got on the scoresheet whilst Kurtis Bamford struck a brace for the visitors.
Grimsby Borough consolidated fifth spot as Darren Hanslip, Daniel Trott and Louis Grant - the latter a penalty - helped them to a 3-0 home win over bottom side Nostell Miners Welfare.
They are now five points clear of sixth-placed Hallam who drew 2-2 at Yorkshire Amateur and seven points in front of Knaresborough Town who are just outside the play-off zone in seventh.
Hallam twice took the lead at the Ammers through Micah Bishop and Kieran Watson but goals from Matthew Dalton and Adam Shaw ensured the spoils were shared at Bracken Edge.
Knaresborough, meanwhile, won 1-0 at home to Winterton Rangers, Fraser Lancaster with the vital strike just past the hour mark.
And, eighth placed Campion were held to a 1-1 draw by next-to-bottom visitors Westella & Willerby, Mike Hewitt's late equaliser taking a point away for Leon Sewell's side after Jacob Buchanon had given the hosts a 38th minute lead.
Hall Road survived a scare to progress from the Quarter-Finals of the East Riding Senior Cup as, after trailing 2-0 at Hanson Jewellers, they forced extra-time and penalties thanks to goals from Jacob Vernon and Jake Cooper before going through 3-0 on spot kicks.
They join Bridlington in the last four who, courtesy of a goal from Harry Fox and Andrew Norfolk's penalty, overcame visitors Dunnington to win 2-0.
