Trafalgar and Newlands claimed sharply contrasting victories to maintain their 100 per cent records to set the pace in division one, while West Riding and Shakespeare also continue to lead the way in division two after they also claimed victories.
Trafalgar 17 (C Dove 5, Hegarty 4, Tate 3, B Salt 2, L Salt 2, Pinder) Hunmanby Hornets 1 (Dobson)
Striker Chris Dove and Nick Hegarty led the way as Traf hammered a below-par Hornets outfit.
Dove smacked in five goals while Hegarty helped himself to four.
Kris Tate banged in a hat-trick for Traf while Ben Salt and his brother, boss Liam, also scored two goals apiece, the latter hitting the net after coming out of goal.
Youngster Jack Pinder completed the Traf scoring, while Cameron Dobson scored Hunmanby’s consolation goal.
Dean Craig earned the man-of-the-match award for a strong central midfield display.
Seamer 0 Newlands 1 (Jack Hakings)
A late opportunistic strike from Jack Hakings secured all three points for the title-chasing visitors in a very close contest.
Seamer defended very well, with keeper James Burrows their man of the match for a commanding display.
Hakings finally broke the home side’s resolve - and their hearts - with a strike five minutes from time, tapping home from close-range after a clearance had hit him in the face.
Centre-back Kile Fields was named as man of the match for Nawlands for a calm and assured show.
Seamer boss James Prethero said: “we played some great football and got it down on the floor but we had to defend for long periods. As well as James in goal, centre-back Joe Tiffany also had a very good game.”
Strongwood 3 (Walker 2, Appleton) Filey Flyers 4 (Pinder 2, R Harrison, Sugden)
Flyers battled hard to claim victory with a late strike in this thrilling game.
Rob Harrison opened the scoring for the visitors, but new signing Sam Walker, playing up front, marked his debut with an equaliser.
James Pinder then put Flyers in front, but Jack Appleton once more put the hosts on level term.
Walker then banged in his second goal to put Strongwood in front, but Flyers’ man of the match Liam Sugden made it 3-3 on the stroke of half-time.
Both sides pushed for a winner in a tense second half, but the Flyers grabbed victory 10 minutes from time when Pinder beat the offside trap to secure victory.
Centre-back Jamie Hartley was named as Strongwood man of the match.
Ayton 3 (Pollard, Bywater, T Stubbings) West Riding 12 (Sygrove 6, Anderson 2, Ellis 2, Malcolm, Williamson)
Second division leaders West Riding overcame a shaky first half to see off hosts Ayton.
The basement club went 1-0 up through Dan Pollard, but despite pulling it back to 2-2 through man of the match Dan Bywater, the visitors went 3-2 up just before the break and then ran riot after the interval.
Tyson Stubbings scored the home side’s only second-half goal.
Riding’s man of the match Gareth Sygrove banged in six goals for the victors, while Mikey Anderson and Nick Ellis both banged in a brace of goals apiece.
Cameron Malcolm and Kurt Williamson completed the rout for the visitors.
itis itis 4 (G Wood 2, Watson, P Oldroyd pen) Trafalgar Res 0
Gav Wood hit a double as itis itis opened their account for the season.
JP Watson marked his return to the team with a fine goal, with man of the match Paul Oldroyd sealed the win with a penalty.
The pick of the goals was Wood’s second, finishing superbly after latching onto an inch-perfect raking pass from Shaun Outhart.
