Weekend Results: 8th August 2022

It is an incredibly busy weekend with the majority of our local teams playing this weekend.

Beverley Town continued their winning start to the season with a 2-0 victory away at Ollerton Town. Reece Moody and Chris Adams were on target with a goal in either half was enough for Beverley to pick up the victory. As well as picking up maximum points Town have also shown a strong defence and kept two clean sheets as well. Manager Dave Ricardo post-match said “It was a battle, we didn’t play anywhere near as well as we did in the first half last week, but there were reasons for that. But we stuck at it. If you’d have offered me six points after two games I’d have bitten your hand off.”

North Ferriby progressed through to the next round of the FA Cup after beating Northallerton with relative ease. Danny East scored a second brace of goals in as many games, Danny Emerton also netted as Ferriby won 3-0 progressing through to the preliminary rounds of the famous competition.

East Riding Futsal Club got some much-needed minutes under their belt with a pre-season trip to Bolton Futsal Club. Dave Lawtey’s men suffered a 9-1 defeat but took heart from the performance against one of the best teams in the country. As well as the first team, some youth teams and the newly formed reserve side played in fixtures too.

Hull City stayed unbeaten with a draw away at Preston North End. The Tigers offered very little attacking threat. Matt Ingram made several vital saves to keep City in the game. Preston 0-0 Hull City.

Hull City Ladies won 3-1 at home to Doncaster Belles as they continue their pre-season preparations. The Tigresses have only lost one friendly so far under new manager Chris Hames, as they prepare for life in the fourth tier.

Beverley ARLFC were defeated in a bottom-of-the-table clash away at Bradford Dudley Hill. A victory for the Blue and Golds would have put a gap between them and the bottom team, but the defeat dragged Beverley back to level points. Nick Robinson has the match report of Bradford Dudley Hill 10-6 Beverley.

Hull FC let go of a 10-point lead as they lost out to Huddersfield Giants. The Black and Whites seemed to have control of the game leading 10-0 at half-time. Despite the Giants hitting back FC still led going into the final ten minutes. The hosts’ constant pressure eventually broke Hull as they scored two tries in the final ten minutes to get the two points. Huddersfield Giant 22-16 Hull FC.

Second-placed, York CC edged out Beverley Town CC in a close game. York were put in to bat first, accumulating 213/9 from 50 overs. A strong performance from Wade making 62 helped the visitors on their way. All the bowlers once again contributed wickets but captain, Jamie Roe, picked up 4-41 from 12 overs. Haytack and Mudd took two apiece whilst, Franklin took the other. Town struggled to keep pace in their innings only reaching 198/9 from 50 overs. Opener, Dobson scored 33 as Beverley lost by an agonizing 15 runs. Town’s seconds, thirds, fourths and even fifth side won with ease over the weekend.

Driffield Town CC kept up the incredible winning run with a convincing win over Acomb CC. The visitors chose to bat and made a respectable 220/3 from 50 overs. Opener Wade, 84, and Olsen not out with 72 showed good form despite the league position. Mishra, George Drury and Alec Drury all took a wicket each. Driffield made light work of a potentially tricky score. Alec Drury opening with the bat scored a century from 110 balls. His brother Sam Drury accompanied him for much of the innings scoring 93 from 89, both not out as Town chased down the total in 37.1 overs to win by 9 wickets. The third and fourth teams both won, whilst the seconds were defeated.

Hull Scorpions halted a poor run of form and put them in place for a potential late play-off push with a two-game victory over Sheffield Cubs. In the first game, Hull battled from behind to win 16-11. The Scorpions made it a clean sweep with a 20-11 victory, in the second game.

Scunthorpe Alphas have made it to the play-offs after beating Lincolnshire Bombers 41-13.

Game MVP went to quarterback Andy Bagnall with 4 passing touchdowns, 3 of which found their way to the Offensive MVP, Lewis Truman. Steve Sowerby with 4 sacks took Defensive MVP.
