Sheffield & Hallamshire County Senior League Round-Up
Goalkeeper Dale Crossland scored a penalty as Wombwell Main won 5-0 in the derby clash at Houghton Main.
Houghton’s afternoon was a tough one as a first half red card left them with a numerical disadvantage for a long period of time.
The base for the win, the third since Terry Simon’s youth revolution began, was built by first half goals from Owen Sykes and former Parkgate and Worsbrough Bridge hero Kieran Hirst.
Hirst’s colleagues Ryan Wingrove and Ash Emmett further ramped up the score.
A penalty was awarded in the middle of those goals, allowing Crossland to get his name on the score-sheet.
In a situation that could have easily gone spectacularly wrong, there was no clowning around from Crossland who almost ripped the net off as he blazed the ball past his own brother Steven in the Houghton goal.
Oughtilbridge strengthened their top five credentials with a shock last gasp 3-2 win at Dodworth Miners Welfare.
Dodworth were trailing 1-0 at the interval but managed to overturn the deficit through Liam Owen and the league’s top goal-scorer Calan Rollinson.
However, a wonder goal levelled the game and Oughtibridge nicked the three points late-on.
Leaders Swinton Athletic won 2-1 in a tricky fixture at Ecclesfield Red Rose 1915 whose unbeaten was ended.
Liam Flint and magic man Enzo Guarini placed Swinton in a strong position by the hour.
That’s when Gavin Hunter pulled one back for Ecclesfield.
Red Rose’s main striker Jacob Rickards saw red in the contest.
Sheffield Town won 2-0 at Hepworth United.
The win takes Sheffield up to sixth in the Division.
