RICHMOND BUCK'S game against Richmond Mavericks in the Wensleydale Creamery League was preceded by a tribute to popular teacher Dave Clark on Saturday.

Mr Clark, deputy head at Richmond School, who was well known and liked by many of the players, died last Monday while walking his dogs.

Mavs won the game 7-0, although the one-sided scoreline didn't reflect the quality of the game.

Andrew Pritchard got a hat-trick, with Sam Pickersgill getting a couple and Scott Fenney and Owen Kelly one each.

Colburn travelled to Carperby, coming away with all three points after 4-0 win, which again was more even than the scoreline suggested.

Rory Wallace converted to make it 1-0 after three minutes before Stuart Murray was thwarted from close range by Carperby's keeper.

The home side then had a shot that flew over, and the next half hour was even.

Colburn's decision making in the final third was letting them down, and Carperby's neat football was creating chances for them.

Priestley was forced to make a couple of fine saves, and Tom Sweeney sent a shot wide.

Just before half-time, Sweeney's corner flew straight into Carperby's net, but the ref spotted some pushing and the goal was disallowed.

In the second half chances went wide from Colburn's Sweeney and Brandon Bishop.

Just after the hour, Colburn doubled their lead when Sweeney set up Craig Teasdale, who rifled his shot past the keeper.

Luke Hamilton and Simon McGuiness then combined to present Murray with a opening, and he duly beat the keeper, at the second attempt. Five minutes before the end Murray played Charlton in, and his goal bound shot was diverted into the net by the unwitting defender.

Richmond Town Reserves got over their narrow defeat to Mavs last week with a 4-1 win at home over Leyburn.

Town did it the hard way though after being behind at half-time through a Sam Lane effort.

Goals from Tom Carnegie-Brown, Harry Beresford, Matthew Turnbull and a penalty from Edward Lewington secured the win for the Richmond team.

Elsewhere, a 15 minute hat-trick from Liam Reeves helped Unicorn defeat the striker's former club 7-2.

Thomas Keegan got two, with Mathew Bateson and Sean Radford also netting.

Kalem Stanger and Lee Thompson scored for the Spenni.
