Curtis Rose and Sam Pickard were the star man as Itis Itis Rovers hammered Seamer 3rds 11-0.

Rose fired in four goals and Pickard hammered in a hat-trick as Rovers edged into pole position in the title race with a comfortable win against 10th-placed Seamer 3rds.

One of Pickard's goals was a superb over-head kick from the edge of the box, but it was run close for goal of the game by Liam Buglass' 35-yard thunderbolt into the top corner.

Glen O'Neil's penalty, Ryan Matson and Neil Forsyth grabbed the other goals for Mikey Barker's side, who are one point behind top two Sherburn and Edgehill 3rds, but they have one and two games in hand on those two respectively.

Buglass was Rovers' man of the match.

Edgehill 3rds stay top of the pile in Division Three after a 6-3 win at home to Fishburn Park Reserves.

Nick Ellis smashed in four goals for Martin Cappleman's side, while Kyle O'Toole and man of the match Matty Rowley grabbed their other goals.

Ayton were denied all three points after a last-gasp own goal from Jaymaine White handed Goalsports Reserves a 4-4 draw.

A Chris Milburn hat-trick and a Chris Reddish strike appeared to have handed Ayton the victory, despite Harry Denness, Jordan Peet and Jonny Woodhead scoring for Goalsports.

It wasn't to be for Ayton though, as White scored an own goal with the last kick of the game to ensure the game finished all square.

Goldsborough United cruised to a 4-0 win at home to rock-bottom Hunmanby United Reserves.

Tom Kilpatrick applied the finish to a well-worked free-kick to make it 1-0 before their second was a long-range effort from Ryan Roe, who caught the keeper off his line.

Skipper Ben Watson grabbed their third before Mike Dent netted the only goal of the second half, with a one-two and finished bottom corner, to wrap up a comfortable 4-0 win.

Sam Pike and Michael Brennan shared the man of the match honours for the victors.
