Bridlington Sports Club won their crucial relegation six-pointer, winning 5-1 at hornsea Town in the Humber Premier League.

A frantic, fast-paced start saw Mike Tate fire agonisingly wide from close range following superb work from a determined Josh Christlow.

However, it was the home side that took the lead courtesy of Jezz Froud’s stunning 25-yard free-kick into the top corner.

Sports Club responded with immediate effect to draw level. Tate’s stinging drive was parried, only for Christlow to convert on the follow up.

Both teams continued to carve out openings yet the score remained level at the break.

The visitors took greater control as they began to press with more aggression and intent. This soon resulted in a second goal as a series of pin-point Christlow corners finally paid dividends.

The returning Carl Harrison wrestled across his man to divert the ball goalwards, although there were question marks over who got the final touch.

Sports Club were now looking menacing and they quickly had a third thanks to a rasping low drive from Christlow.

The home side’s cause was worsened as they were reduced to 10 men following a reckless second bookingfor Sam Moss.

Sports Club hit on the counter attack as Hornsea naturally began to leave gaps. Substitute Eric Hall, making his first appearance for the club, powered home a header from Mark Davies’ precise delivery.

The same pair combined again just minutes later as Davies supplied Hall to add a late fifth.

Sports Club host Chalk Lane this Saturday.
