Town are on song – as Syn­tho­nia are beaten

Sunday Sun - - Non-league Football -

A STUN­NING first-half per­for­mance helped Billing­ham Town to a com­pre­hen­sive derby win against Billing­ham Syn­tho­nia.

Craig Hutchin­son con­tin­ued his im­pres­sive form with a hat-trick in the open­ing 45 min­utes, and Jamie Davis grabbed the other goal to give Town a four-goal ad­van­tage at the break.

That proved to be the end of the scor­ing, but Town had done enough to see off their neigh­bours and main­tain their five-point lead at the top of the ta­ble.

Thorn­aby lie in sec­ond af­ter Lewis Mur­phy’s in­jury-time win­ner gave them all three points in a dra­matic game at Birt­ley Town.

Joe Bar­wick put Birt­ley ahead just af­ter half-time, but their lead was wiped out by quick­fire strikes from Ben Jack­son and Joe Scaife-Wheat­ley.

James David­son got the hosts back on level terms as the game ticked into in­jury­time, only to see Thorn­aby claim the points thanks to Mur­phy’s late strike.

Michael Hep­ple­white and Owen Hen­der­son were on tar­get as Ch­ester-le-Street Town moved up to third with a 2-0 win at Ry­ton and Crawcrook Al­bion.

Heaton Stan­ning­ton were held to a goal­less draw at home against Willing­ton and two goals from Glen Har­grave put Jar­row on their way to a 3-1 win against Tow Law Town at Perth Green.

Billy Harper couldn’t claim a win in his first game as Durham City man­ager as the Cit­i­zens fell to a 7-2 home de­feat against Eas­ing­ton Col­liery.

Carl Pot­tinger scored twice for Harper’s side, but hat-tricks from Liam Adam­son and Jack Pounder, along with a goal from Dan Mar­tin, gave the Col­liers a com­pre­hen­sive win at Hall Lane.

Jor­dan Rivis also hit a tre­ble in Red­car Ath­letic’s 4-2 win against Crook Town and Michael Leech scored the only goal of the game as West Al­lot­ment Celtic claimed all three points at Washington.

Jayven Red­man scored a brace to can­cel out Cameron Fen­ton’s opener and give Esh Win­ning an im­pres­sive 2-1 win at Bedling­ton Ter­ri­ers.

The win moved Esh up to 16th in the ta­ble, al­though they were grate­ful to see Stephen Young miss a penalty for the hosts in in­jury time.
