Shane Carver notched a hat-trick as Askern posted a 6-0 win over Abacus Lighting Central Midlands League Division North rivals Dinnington Town.

There was little indication of either side running away with the game at half-time when the score stood at 0-0.

But the floodgates opened after Town were reduced to ten men, which included veteran manager Ron Colman, through injury, and Askern scored six without reply to finish the highest scorers in the division on the day.

Shaun Mundy, Jordan McCabe and Hayden Tomlinson all chipped in with single strikes as Askern recorded their 11th win of the season.

Harworth stayed in touch after two goals in two minutes sent Easington United home pointless. Josh Dickinson put Harworth in front from a 70th minute penalty with Blake Freeman quickly adding a second.

Thorne Colliery had the chance to do Harworth a favour but they lost 1-0 against visiting Appleby Frodingham, who led from the 14th minute, at Moorends Welfare.

Brodsworth Welfare booked their place in Northern final of the Phoenix Trophies Floodlit Trophy with a 2-1 midweek win at Retford.

Courtney Peynado earned the visitors a 1-0 interval lead and that’s the way it stayed until late in the game when Josh Bowkett made it 2-0. Retford pulled a goal back in the dying minutes.

*Brodsworth Welfare are still looking to get off the mark in the Doncaster Rovers Senior League Premier Division after losing 2-0 at home to South Elmsall United Services.
