Richmond Mavericks return to top with win over Catterick

Richmond Mavericks are back on top of the Scotts for Storage Wensleydale League thanks to a win over Catterick Garrison.

A hat-trick from Andrew Pritchard and one from Zak Cleminson were enough to secure the points for Mavs.

Luke McCormack scored both goals for Catterick.

The win took the Richmond team back to the top of table above Hawes, who did not have a game.

Richmond Town Reserves hosted Carperby for the final time of the season having won each of the three previous games 2-1.

With Town reduced by late call-ups to their first team they struggled to find any rhythm in the first half and only tested the keeper once when Beresford netted, but his strike was ruled out for offside.

Carperby started the second half the stronger and should have scored when Lambert hit the post when clean through.

Lewington was providing all the creativity for Town and he eventually gave them the lead when he ran through and found the bottom corner.

Lambert equalised with a fine finish on 79 minutes. Town pushed for a late winner but could not find anyway past Pickard in the Carperby goal

Elsewhere, Unicorn exited the North Riding Saturday Challenge Cup, losing 5-1 to a strong Boro Rangers Reserves team.
