Toolstation NCEL Division One Round-Up
Threadbare and ten man Glasshoughton Welfare stopped free-scoring Hallam from stretching their winning run to 11 league games.
Glasshoughton were without key defenders Matt Cunliffe, Fidel Mhlolo and Aaron Gray, meaning striker Jamie Simpson had to play centre-half alongside captain Adam Walsh.
Striker Josh Whiteley had also joined North Ferriby on the morning of the game.
But despite the woes and playing with ten men for most of the second half, Glasshoughton took the lead late-on and even should have won it after Hallam equalised.
They do owe goalkeeper Sam Riches a debt of gratitude as he made a few top saves to keep Hallam, who had hit 57 goals in those ten wins, at bay.
Nick Lalousis was the player dismissed as he pulled down a through Iren Wilson in the 55th minute.
The red card only served to make them stronger and the deadlock breaker came after in-form Lewis Stephens was presented with an open goal after a superb counter-attack.
Only ten minutes were left at this point and the visitors were cruelly denied their win by a Hallam goal five minutes late.
Jack Brownell’s effort hit the crossbar and bounced off the back of Riches and landed in the net.
Glasshoughton even nearly won it at the death from a repeat of the opener.
However, Hallam were let off the hook.
Ten man North Ferriby’s were prevented from recording nine consecutive league wins by a last minute equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Ollerton Town who must have travelled over the Yorkshire border and back into Nottingham with what felt like a victory.
Despite losing captain Niall Tilsley to a second yellow card in the first half, Ferriby had been on course for victory.
Danny Emerton had seemingly hit the winner with ten minutes to go.
But Ollerton, who had won their four previous matches, have form for late goals and in the last minute Ben Partridge’s deflected effort looped over a helpless Ferriby goalkeeper Jordan Douglas.
Worsbrough Bridge ended their run of five straight defeats by winning 2-1 at their old manager Lee Morris’ Armthorpe Welfare.
Worsbrough took a 12th minute lead as Luke Francis saw his short go in off a post and they managed to squander several chances to extend their lead before the break.
Mike Jepps did eventually grab the second goal for Worsbrough close to the hour mark.
Adam Baskerville gave Armthorpe hope after pulling a goal back seven minutes later but despite a spell of pressure they didn’t really come close to forcing an equaliser.
Second half goals ensured Harrogate Railway went home from Shirebrook Town with a 2-0 win – their third straight victory.
With first team coach Paul Clayton at the helm, Railway won the contest thanks to strikes from Adam Shaw and recent signing Rhys Davies.
Nostell Miners Welfare are without a win in three league games following the 1-1 draw with lowly Swallownest.
Alfie Smith even gave Swallownest a tenth minute lead.
That was quickly cancelled out by Harvey Walker.
Sam Ackroyd’s first half hat-trick helped Parkgate comfortably win 4-2 at Teversal.
Freddy Tracey was their opening goal-scorer.
Seven different players hit the net as Rossington Main disembowelled FC Humber United in a 7-1 win.
Rossington were 4-0 up after 18 minutes.
Danny Deakin, Josh Buckham, Jason Stokes, Bailey Conway, Greg Young, Tyla Bell and Josh Yeaman score for Rosso.
Yaya Dembele brought brief respite for Humber.
Hall Road Rangers lost 3-0 at leaders Brigg Town.
