Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #18

4th October, 2017

Three players scored four goals each in another midweek of Toolstation NCEL action that was full of massive scorelines.

Kane Reece was one of them as he helped second-placed Pontefract Collieries to an 8-0 victory in their Premier Division match at Thackley.

Vaughan Redford and Jack Greenhough had put them two up after eighteen minutes, Reece then got in on the act before Eli Hey completed the scoring in the last ten minutes with a double, the first from the penalty spot.

The Colls are now three points behind Pickering Town after the leaders drew 1-1 at Worksop Town who stay fourth, Alec Denton's early penalty for the home side cancelled out on the hour mark with Nick Thompson's strike for the Pikes.

Maltby Main remain in third after Ross Duggan's 70th minute equaliser earned them a 1-1 draw at AFC Mansfield who are unbeaten in the league and in eighth spot having played fewer games than everyone else in the league bar Liversedge who also drew 1-1 at home.

Joseph Walton netted in first half stoppage time for Sedge and then McCauley Shillito grabbed a point for Athersley Recreation in the final seconds of the match.

Handsworth Parramore are now fifth after they won 4-0 at home to next-to-bottom Barton Town, Adam Johnson's brace added to by goals from Jonathan Froggatt and Jamie Yates whilst Bridlington Town are up into sixth following their dramatic 5-2 victory over visitors Harrogate Railway Athletic.

Luke Stewart had given the away side a half-time lead before substitute Jake Day's double put the hosts ahead on 70 minutes and then Stewart got his and the Rail's second on 84 as the game looked set to end all square.

But, Day struck twice more and Joel Sutton also netted in the last three minutes of the game to claim the win.

Albion Sports have climbed up into ninth after Redmond Lee's late double helped them to a 4-2 victory at Parkgate whilst Penistone Church came from two goals down to win 4-3 at home to Hall Road Rangers.

Christopher Spinks struck twice in quick succession at the start of the second period for Rangers whereupon Jordan Barnett, Brett Lovell, Kieran Ryan and Andrew Ring turned the game on its head in a deadly thirteen minute spell, and then Fraser Hansen netted a late third for the visitors.

In Division One, leaders Knaresborough Town are now eight points clear after their 4-0 win at home to basement side Brigg Town, Brad Walker scoring the first and fourth goals whilst Blaine Hobson and Stephen Bromley also got on the scoresheet in a game that was goalless at half-time.

The two most in-form sides in the division both won as Grimsby Borough beat hosts Dronfield Town 2-0 thanks to a Jack Debnam double, their fifth straight win to move up into third.

And, Eccleshill United made it seven victories in a row as Andrew Cooper and Levi Maturine found the net towards the end of their home game with AFC Emley to win by the same scoreline and consolidate fifth position.

Hallam, though, were the big movers as they defeated visitors Worsbrough Bridge Athletic 7-0 to ascend four places to fourteenth, Mitchell Dunn with four of their goals in thirty first half minutes whilst Daniel State, Gareth Griffiths and Mark West piled on the pressure by also getting on the scoresheet.

The League Cup got underway with Ollerton Town becoming the first side to progress in the season's competition, winning 2-0 at home to Retford United, Benjamin Bowring and Gavin King striking for the Walesby Lane side in the final seven minutes of their First Round tie.

Two last gasp goals from Kieran Watson saw Shirebrook Town snatch a 2-1 home win in the First Round of the Derbyshire Senior Cup over their Langwith Road tenants FC Bolsover who had taken the lead in the 69th minute through Callum Wood.

And, Rainworth Miners Welfare enjoyed a friendly with Sky Bet League Two neighbours Mansfield Town who brought a strong side including eight first-teamers to Kirklington Road, the Wrens going down 2-0 in a worthwhile game for Craig Denton's team.

Meanwhile, Glasshoughton Welfare's home game with East Yorkshire Carnegie in Division One was postponed due to floodlight failure.
