The biggest crowd to watch a Toolstation NCEL Division One match for over a decade witnessed a 3-1 home win for North Ferriby over neighbours East Hull on a Saturday once again disrupted by the bad weather.
Half of the fixtures in the league were called off due to waterlogged pitches whilst Knaresborough Town
's home game with Athersley Recreation
was abandoned early in the second half due to floodlight failure.
In the Premier Division, Hemsworth Miners Welfare
climb into third, four points behind leaders Staveley Miners Welfare
, after a 2-1 victory at Yorkshire Amateur
who fall to eighth.
Ryan Carroll and Edward Cass netted for the visitors in the first period and they held on to the three points despite some late nerves after Matthew Sykes converted a penalty in the 73rd minute to halve their advantage.
A 5-1 home win over Grimsby Borough
has catapulted Bridlington Town
above their opponents into fifth, in a game that was 1-1 at the interval after Fraser Papprill's 16th minute opener was immediately cancelled out for the away side by Jack Bradbury.
The second half, however, belonged completely to the Seasiders as Billy Logan, Christopher Jenkinson, Brett Agnew and Lewis Taylor all found the net.
A Sean Hunter hat-trick helped Garforth Town
to a 6-1 victory against Thackley
, the Miners moving up into seventh after the win that also included goals for Sam Barker, Mark Simpson and Alex Low.
Asa Mitchell got an injury-time consolation for Thackley who had played three-quarters of the game with ten men after Sebastian Scaroni was red carded in the 24th minute.
And, Silsden are up into the top half of the table after a 2-1 defeat of visitors Eccleshill United
, a Talent Ndlovu own goal settling the encounter after Jake Taylor-Mountford had cancelled out an early breakthrough for the away side by Eli Hey.
v Maltby Main
, Barton Town
v Penistone Church
, Bottesford Town
, Goole AFC
v Albion Sports
v Staveley were all postponed.
Division One leaders Skegness Town
are now six points clear after a 2-1 home victory over Hall Road Rangers
, Luke Rayner-Mistry opening the scoring for the hosts in the first minute before Ben Davison doubled their lead near the half-hour and Charlie Birley pulled one back for Rangers on 62.
Nostell Miners Welfare
stay fifth after a Nathan Perks hat-trick helped condemn them to a 4-1 loss at Glasshoughton Welfare
whose fifth straight victory moves them up to seventh, Franisco Matos with their other goal whilst Calum Ward netted for Nostell.
North Ferriby climb to sixth with their victory over East Hull that was watched by 619 spectators - the biggest attendance since 791 watched Scarborough Athletic play out a goalless draw with Leeds Carnegie in April 2009.
Tom Corner put the Villagers ahead on 15 minutes before Joshua Ward brought the division's basement side back level and Eddie Birch restored North Ferriby's lead prior to the interval, and then Danny Emmerton ensured all three points were going the home side's way on 74.
Shay Evans-Booth struck twice, once from the penalty spot, in Retford FC
's 2-0 win at home to Swallownest
and the Choughs are now eighth in the table.
And, Harrogate Railway Athletic
are out of the bottom two with a 3-2 victory over visitors Brigg Town
in a game that saw both sides take the lead.
Patrick Sykes broke the deadlock for the Rail on 15 but Stuart Longbone's equaliser and then a Reece Moody penalty had the Zebras in front by half-time.
Sykes, however, got a leveller on the hour and Fraser Lancaster grabbed the winner on 73 minutes that moves Harrogate up to seventeenth, only behind their sixteenth-placed visitors on goal difference.
v Rossington Main
, Dronfield Town
v Selby Town
v Winterton Rangers
and Worsbrough Bridge Athletic
v Ollerton Town
were all victims of the wet weather.
