Brighouse hit back to beat Arnold
Brighouse Town earned the win that kept them in second place in the Baris Northern Counties East Premier Division but they had to battle back from a goal down at Arnold Town to do it.
Following a goalless first half Liam Corrigan opened the scoring for the home side just six minutes after the break. Arnold’s lead lasted just 11 minutes as James Hurtley grabbed the equaliser and then Ben Charlesworth netted Town’s winner.
Town remain two points behind leaders Scarborough Athletic who won 5-0 at home to Nostell.
Thackley slipped from sixth to eighth following a home defeat to newcomers Heanor Town. The Derbyshire outfit broke the deadlock early on through Lee Stevenson.
The Dennyboys bounced back as Nicky Matthews equalised in the 13th minute. Steph Frost’s strike for Heanor, minutes before half time, proved to be the winner.
Liversedge were also beaten but they ran promotion outsiders Worksop Parramore close at Clayborn. The game remained goalless until the 56th minute when Lee Thompson put the visitors ahead.
Matthew Bugg levelled with ten minutes to go but Worksop produced a late winner as Lee Holmes netted in the penultimate minute.
Eccleshill United continued their recent revival under Bobby Davison with a 4-1 win at Bottesford Town in Division One.
The Scunthorpe-based club went ahead but Eagles’ front man Marcus Edwards levelled on the half hour with his fifth goal in the last two games. An own goal just a minute before half time ensured the visitors went into the break with a lead.
The Eagles extended that through Drake Trease and put the gloss on the win with a fourth from Brandan Roane in the 89th minute.
Title hopefuls Albion Sports were without a fixture as they should have been at home to Dinnington Town but Horsfall Stadium was not available as Bradford Park Avenue also had a home game.
Albion dropped to fourth while they were sidelined but they now have four games in hand on all three clubs above them and are just seven points off the top.
