Skipton LMS 4
Skipton LMS usurped Crosshills from the top of the Craven League Premier Division table in a scintillating match at Sutton Fields.
With both teams depleted due to injuries and other commitments, the early exchanges favoured the reigning champions with the play littered with numerous fouls and Hills losing midfield dynamo Eddie Jenkins with injury early on.
The South Craven side had plenty of efforts with Jamie Page and Ben Dewhirst going close but the match was all square at the interval.
Luke Howson’s mazy run and shot past Johnny Rampling broke Hills’ resolve after 54 minutes.
An excellent free-kick by the same player after 68 minutes looked to have put the game out of Hills’ reach but Dewhirst pegged one back for the hosts.
Callum Wootton made it 3-1 before Jack Wrigglesworth and Tom Hunter made for an exciting scoreline as Crosshills slipped to their first defeat of the season.
Crosshills: Rampling; Thompson, L Newton, S Newton, Parkin, Jenkins (Steel 26), Josh Page, Matthews, Wrigglesworth, Dewhirst, Jamie Page. Subs (not used): North, W Storrie.
