Mens 2 V City Of York 9

Mens 2 V City Of York 9

Second in the division 5 north table Acomb men’s 2 travelled the short distance across York to take on local rivals City Of York 9, after the tangerines took the points in their previous outing early in the season they were looking to do much the same and continue their unbeaten run. With only 6 minutes gone York were awarded a penalty corner which the tangerines stand in keeper Martin Grainge saved and the game continued with both teams looking strong. After 18 minutes the tangerines broke free and opened the scoring with a goal coming from Anthony Daley, 3 minutes later the tangerines doubled their advantage with a goal from Tom Brown. York had chances but couldn’t get past Acomb’s defense and the first half ended with the tangerines having a 2 goal advantage. Both teams were quick off the mark after the break and with 7 minutes gone Richard Luscombe scored after Tom Brown pass. Within minutes Daley’s shot on goal was saved by York’s keeper only for tangerines skipper Johnny Brown to lynch onto the rebound burying it into the back of the net. With 10 minutes remaining Tom Brown scored the tangerines 5th goal and whilst the hosts had chances keeper Grainge thwarted their efforts. The game ended with the tangerines winning 5-0 to maintain their second position in the table with a game in hand and Harrogate 5 hot on their tails.
