Wensleydale League: Unicorn count cost of penalty miss
1:32pm Friday 1st November 2013 in Sport
THE game of the day last Saturday was at Brompton-on- Swale where defending champions and league leaders Unicorn FC faced the only other unbeaten side in the league, Spennithorne and Harmby. As expected, there was very little to choose between the sides and neither could make the breakthrough, although Unicorn might have won it had Paul Brown not missed a penalty.
Elsewhere, however, the goals flowed. Hawes United are up to second after a 8-1 victory at Reeth. Thomas Wallis opened the scoring inside five minutes while Wilf Dinsdale, a brace from Steve Calvert and an own goal ended the match as a contest before the break. Jonathon Champion, Dinsdale, with his second, and Martyn Allen then completed the scoring in the second half before Lewis Stabler scored the late Reeth consolation.
Richmond Mavericks Reserves won 9-0 at Catterick Rovers. Mark Sims and Phil Stirling, who are proving to be the most lethal strike partnership in the league, both found the target twice in the first half while Carl Tate made it 5-0 at the break. Sims added two more in the second half to take him into double figures for the season, while Darren Matthews and James Laws then completed the rout in the second half.
Richmond Buck Inn went one better with a 10-1 victory over Carperby Rovers. Mark Swanwick gave the Buck an early lead from the penalty spot but Keifer Bottomley brought Rovers level soon after. However, Shaun Cater and Mickey White put the Buck in control before the break while Swanwick, with his second, a superb solo effort from substitute Rob McGregor, David Addison, Danny Glue, Kenny Mudd, John Bishton and Stu Fotheringham brought up double figures.
Colburn Town were the highest scorers of the week with a 12-2 victory win Askrigg United. Stu Murray struck four times while Luke Hamilton and the league’s leading scorer Tom Sweeney scored twice each. Luke Mc- Cormack, Liam Hall and Chris Sutherland were also on target.
Shaun Kell and Richard Sunter replied for Askrigg in the first half.
Catterick Garrison Football Centre are on a great run and they made it six wins in a row with a 2-1 success at bottom side Richmond Town Academy.
A strike from Steven Files and an own goal from Graham Love, both in the first half, were just enough to give Catterick the points despite a reply from Richmond’s Joe Woodall.
