Whitestars hang on to complete double

Silsden White Star 3 Gargrave 2
Whitestar completed a quick-fire double over Gargrave to pull well clear of the Division One relegation zone, reports David Burns.
After a 2-1 away win earlier in the month, the hosts were hopeful of a repeat but, despite creating loads of chances, could not convert any, to leave the teams deadlocked at half-time.
In the second half Silsden’s relentless attacking paid dividends when Danny Cox scored an easy tap in.
Cox netted a second after superb wing play saw him turn a defender inside out and coolly finish.
Gavin Shearer made it 3-0 from great one-two passing and clinically finished to give the Gargrave goalkeeper no chance.
The visitors did not give up, however, and their attacking play paid off when they converted a penalty.
Gargrave pulled another one back to make for a tense and nerve-wracking finish but Whitestars held firm and were relieved to hear the referee blow the final whistle.
