Wearside League: Farquhar in late to make point for Ashbrooke Belford House

Have your say

Ashbrooke Belford House left it late before claiming a point from last night’s game against Horden CW at Silksworth.

Max Stoker struck for the Colliers just before the interval, but, after Dominic Laws levelled, Horden missed a penalty before again taking the lead as Andy Hall beat home goalkeeper Brett Wilson.

With just four minutes to go, Josh Farquhar came up trumps for Ashbrooke, who might well have won but for a man-of-the-match performance by Horden goalkeeper Mark Tierney.

Two penalties by Mark Catcheside earned Sunderland West End a narrow 2-1 victory over Harton and Westoe CW at Ford Quarry, while Seaham Red Star Reserves went down to Cleator Moor Celtic, for whom Luke Close scored the only goal.

Silksworth CW went down 3-1 at Leam Rangers, for whom Johnny Hirst broke the deadlock when he fired past goalkeeper Michael Smith on 37 minutes.

Alan Mulholland made it two soon after the break and it was virtually all over for the Wearsiders when they conceded a third goal to Nathan Baddams.

Substitute Adam Storey did put a goal back, but his 82nd minute strike came too late to save the game.

Murton succumbed 3-0 to Hartlepool, who stretched a single goal half-time lead to three as Alex Marshall and Lee Jones also beat goalkeeper Andrew Wright, who had conceded to Terry Wilkinson in the first period.

Spennymoor Town Reserves launched a spirited fightback to claim a point from their home fixture with Jarrow, who led courtesy of a brace of goals from Chris Allen.

With just seven minutes left, Ross Hunter threw Moors a lifeline and four minutes later he was again on target to level the score at 2-2.

Despite scoring first through Scott Heslop, Annfield Plain lost 2-1 to Prudhoe Town, for whom Scott Douglas and Stephen Foster netted.

Seven former players returned to help Stockton Town to a 7-0 romp at Wolviston.

The champions were a different class as Mattie Garbutt (2), Sonny Coleman, Adam Nicholson, Stephen Roberts, Max Craggs (penalty) and Mattie Lovat struck.

Redcar Athletic snatched a late 2-1 win against Richmond Town when Connor Lyon was unlucky to turn the ball into his own net. Darren Swankey had opened for Richmond and Andrew Jennings levelled.
