Third division leaders Itis Itis Rovers fought back from a goal down to win 4-2 at second division Goalsports in the League Cup.

After a goalless first half, the home side opened the scoring with a spectacular goal from debutant Devon Harrison, the 16-year-old left-winger turned his man neatly and smashed the ball into the net.

Rovers, with player-boss Mikey Barker having come on, started to pile on the pressure and levelled when the latter raced through and slotted home, Curtis Rose heading in the second to put the away side in front.

Further goals from Luke Jones and Rose sealed the win, Goalsports notching a second late on through a Mike Grayshan penalty after Dan Pickard had been fouled.

Barker said: "Our man of the match was Grant Elwell at left-back, and we dominated from start to finish."

His counterpart Mark Plumpton said: "We had a couple of youngsters playing as we were depleted, Devon was definitely the man of the match as he was outstanding on the left wing."

Sherburn's flawless start to the season continued with a 4-0 home win against Fishburn Park Reserves.

Player-manager Andy Adamson, who was man of the match for Sherburn, and Liam Scott put the villagers 2-0 ahead by half-time, with Kristian Wilkinson and Paul Mills netting after the interval.

Edgehill 3rds surged into third spot with a 7-3 win in an entertaining clash at Ayton.

Former Scarborough Athletic midfielder Gary Hepples, his brother Carl, super-sub Lewis Weller, Tom Scales, Martin Coulson, Kyle O'Toole and a Tim Hick own goal saw the visitors home, despite a late flurry from the village club.

A clever chip from Chris Milburn, James Cooke's low shot after fine build-up play and a Daniel Bywater penalty-kick had brought it back to 5-3, with only a fine save from the Edgehill keeper onto the bar stopping a fourth, Jake Adams also missing three one-on-ones in the final 10 minutes after pushing up from centre-back.

Gary Hepples showed his class at a higher level to share the man of the match award with Weller, who was playing his final game before going travelling, while left-back Jaymaine White had a superb match for the hosts.

Commercial came back from 2-0 down to claim a late 3-2 triumph at Seamer Sports 3rds.

Tom Laffey put Seamer 1-0 up at the interval, with Jamie Cornish's second-half effort looking to have netted all three points for Paul Greatorex's team.

Twenty-five minutes from time, Macauley Youngson pulled a goal back for the visitors, who seemed to stir into life at this point as sub Chris Millson scored from inside the six-yard box to level in the 80th minute.

In the final minute Millson ran down the left wing and crossed it to Luke Beaver who headed the ball into the top corner.

Man of the match for Commercial was Michael Hernandez, with Josh Dolan also impressing after coming on as sub, while Matty Robinson was the star man for Seamer.

Hunmanby United Reserves slipped to a 4-1 home loss against Goldsborough United, Tom Brown's strike a mere consolation for the hosts, whose man of the match was central midfielder Dean Coates.
