Min­ster­men felled by ram­pant Av­enue

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE NORTH: Brad­ford Park Av­enue moved level on points with long-time lead­ers Chor­ley fol­low­ing a 4-1 win at 10-man York City.

Goals from Jake Beesley (2), Jamie Spencer and Ben McKenna in­flicted a third de­feat in eight days on a Min­ster­men team who never re­cov­ered from cap­tain Joe Tait’s 25th-minute dis­missal.

Tait floored Beesley with a flail­ing arm in the penalty box to re­ceive his march­ing or­ders and the on-loan Sal­ford striker com­pounded the home team’s mis­ery by open­ing the scor­ing from the spot.

Beesley net­ted his ninth goal of the sea­son two min­utes af­ter the in­ter­val be­fore Spencer got in on the act shortly af­ter­wards with a stun­ning 20-yard ef­fort that rock­eted into Adam Bartlett’s top-right corner fol­low­ing Hamza Bencherif’s headed clear­ance af­ter a Nicky Wroe flag kick.

Sean New­ton replied for the hosts with a well-placed free­kick, but McKenna wrapped up the points in the 82nd minute

Else­where, Guise­ley were un­for­tu­nate not to de­feat Dar­ling­ton af­ter hit­ting the frame of the home goal four times. Kaine Fe­lix and Paul Clay­ton both hit the cross­bar and a post dur­ing the 0-0 draw.
