Hellifield Sports v Horton

6.15pm  27 August 2015

Craven and District league, Division Three
Hellifield Sports 2 Horton 1 (att 33)

Not quite as many thrills as last week's reverse league fixture at Horton, but this was another thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining 90 minutes in the lower reaches of the Craven and District League.

Like last time, Hellifield just about deserved their narrow victory, but were pushed all the way by Horton. Surprisingly, the first goal didn't arrive until mid way through the second half, when the home side went ahead.

They didn't hold the lead for long though, as Horton were soon level. Having equalised, Horton carried the greater threat for a while, before Hellifield seized a chance to score a second. It set up a great finish, with Horton pressing forward but vulnerable on the break, but there were no more goals.

Hellifield is an attractive village on the main road between Skipton and Settle. Football is played on a steeply-sloping pitch at Hellifield Recreation Field, an attractive venue bordered by houses on one side and greenery and a railway line on the other.
