Cartman inspires five-goal Liversedge
LIVERSEDGE went goal crazy at Hall Road Rangers in the Baris Northern Counties East League to turn in their first Premier Division nap hand of the season.
Sedge had scored four times on three previous occasions this term but never five.
That all changed as they picked up three points with a 5-2 win over their fellow lower mid-table rivals, a result that also took Sedge through the 40-point barrier.
Nathan Cartman got them off to a great start with goals in the seventh and 17th minutes, before Dave Boardman made it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time.
The hosts hit back early in the second half through Adam Crane but Alex Hallam restored Sedge’s three-goal cushion.
Joe Cooper made it 4-2 three minutes from time but Boardman followed his last-minute goal in first half with another at the end of the second.
BRIGHOUSE TOWN were also handsome winners in a high-scoring game as they came from a goal down to beat visiting Pickering Town 4-2.
Tom Matthews was third-placed Town’s hero as he bagged a hat-trick to take his tally in the last three games to six goals.
Matthews levelled after Steve Baxter had given Pickering a tenth-minute lead. Danny Hull then edged the home side in front but Baxter made it all square again before the break.
Matthews then took over in the second half, firing in just after the hour mark and three minutes from time.
ECCLESHILL UNITED had two-goal Charlie Flaherty to thank as they returned from top-eight Division One rivals Worsborough Bridge Athletic with a 2-1 win.
Flaherty netted low from 12 yards after an Andy Fieldhouse shot from the edge of the area had hit the post.
That was the only goal of the first half and Shaun Pierrepoint hit a 73rd-minute equaliser for the home side.
But Flaherty hit a stunner four minutes from time that was worthy of winning any game.
Eagles spokesman Adrian Benson said: “Charlie’s second was a brilliant volley from 35 yards – unstoppable!”
