Scott Driscoll misses hat-trick but still seals points for Calverley United
Scott Driscoll scored twice as Calverley United continued their march up the Senior B division with a 4-1 home win over Rodillian in the Yorkshire Amateur League.
A hat-trick was there for the taking but Driscoll missed a penalty, with Calverley’s other goals coming from Adam Boyce and Kieran Kenneally in what was his last game before returning to his native Ireland.
The win was Calverley’s fourth in succession and leaves them seventh in the table, now above their opponents on goal difference.
Leaders Farsley Celtic Juniors were held to a 0-0 draw at mid-table Shire Academics and needed a great save by keeper Jordan Wright to avoid defeat.
It also finished level between bottom two St Bede’s and basement side Collingham Juniors OB, who shared the points from a 2-2 draw.
Kyle McGinnis and Lee Cornforth edged Saints 2-1 up with a quickfire second-half double but they then surrendered a late penalty, which was converted by Matt Gouland.
Grangefield OB edged a 4-3 win at Alwoodley after trailing three times to retain their outside hopes of nicking the Senior A section title. Rhys Moore netted the winner after earlier goals from Andy Kenyon (2) and Nick Smith.
St Bede’s Reserves, like their senior stablemates, drew 2-2, with visitors Leeds Medics & Dentists Fifths taking a point as both sides continue their battle to steer clear of relegation trouble in Division Two. Saints needed two equalisers from Kingsley Hall and Jamal Nash.
Heckmondwike GSOB suffered a setback towards the foot of Division Three as fellow strugglers Thornesians Reserves beat them 3-2. Darren Harwood replied with two headers.
Anthony Garner and Steve Thwaites were on target as fifth-placed St Bede’s Thirds made it eight games without defeat in Division Five with a 2-1 win against second-bottom East Ardsley Wanderers Reserves.
