LINGDALE United stormed into a two-goal lead against Staithes with Wayne Skelton firing home a left foot volley and a headed goal inside the first eight minutes.
Staithes fielded a strong team but were unable to create any real chances to score, with Welford and Kirk solid in the Lingdale defence. Staithes tried to get a foothold into the game, but were just unable to prise open a strong Lingdale defence.
Staithes scored a late goal on 87 minutes through Craig Marsey and in a frantic last few minutes, almost produced an equaliser with the final kick of the game, only to see the ball placed just wide.
