A goal apiece from Jon Parsons, Olly Hughes and Rob Eeles put Pocklington Town 4ths into the quarter-finals of the Driffield League Challenge Cup with a 3-0 victory at Bridlington Rovers Reserves.

Bishop Wilton overcame a scare at Nafferton, scoring two own goals to go into the break at 2-2 before eventually romping to a 10-3 success in their Driffield League clash.

The second half was a different story with Wilton taking control of the game and scoring eight goals without reply to put Nafferton to the sword.

Nafferton’s only second-half effort was a Baz McRaye screamer from 30 yards.

Martonian were in the goals again with Ben I’Anson netting a hat-trick, and Gareth Owen and Danny Tighe also notching one apiece in their 5-0 victory over Flamborough.

Martonian took the game to Boro and were on top for most of the game.
