Sunday Sun - - Football -

HEB­BURN Town Re­serves took full ad­van­tage of a slip-up by Wolvis­ton to open up a four-point lead at the top of the Wearside League.

Dy­lan Nes­bitt got the only goal of the game to help the ta­ble-top­ping Hor­nets to a nar­row home win against strug­gling Dar­ling­ton Town.

That was enough to open up a gap to sec­ond-placed Wolvis­ton af­ter they were beaten at home by Silksworth CW.

Adam Storey gave the vis­i­tors the lead on 28 min­utes but it was short­lived as Ste­wart Bath got Wolvis­ton back level mo­ments later.

But three goals in the last 12 min­utes from Harry Mun­day, Nick Smith and John Mad­di­son helped Silksworth to an im­pres­sive win over a Wolvis­ton side that were re­duced to 10 men by Mikey McGee’s sec­ond­half red card.

Sun­der­land West End lie fourth af­ter a com­fort­able 4-1 home win against Dar­ling­ton RA.

First-half goals from Brad Foster, Mark Robin­son and Bryan Nor­ton gave West End a 3-1 half-time lead and Kev Gor­don’s goal 20 min­utes af­ter the restart ended any hopes of a come­back by the vis­i­tors.

Rich­mond Town moved into the top six with a 3-0 home win against West Auck­land Tuns thanks to goals from Shaun Smith, Nigel Han­son and Gary Walker.

Hartle­pool FC made it six games un­beaten as goals from Jamie Tu­milty and Lee Jones helped them to a 2-1 win at Gateshead Leam Rangers.

Mark Rud­dick scored for the hosts as they pushed Terry Hill’s men with­out re­ward.

Hor­den CW came from be­hind to se­cure a 2-1 win at Boldon CA.

Liam McBryde put the hosts ahead just af­ter half-time but Hor­den claimed the points through goals from John Bowes and Davey Stevens.

And Cox­hoe Ath­letic are still look­ing for their first win of the league sea­son as a hat-trick from Dan Mad­di­son and goals from Car­los Mal­pass and Jack Wat­son con­demned them to a 5-3 de­feat at An­n­field Plain.
