It’s been another busy weekend for our sides in and around Hull. From relegation 6 pointers in the Premier League to important results for Hull City ladies and Hull Thunder Volleyball there is plenty to reflect on.
Football: In the main our Football teams had a good weekend with the one obvious exception being North Ferriby United who were hammered 3-0 at Bromley after Taron Hare was dismissed in the first half and Steve Housham was also sent to the stands for protesting to the referee later in the half. This means The Villagers are now 5 points from safety with 9 games remaining.
On a positive note Hull City picked up a massive 3 points in their bid for Premier League survival beating Swansea 2-1 at the KCOM Stadium. A brace from Substitute Oumar Niasse gave Marco Silva’s side a massive 3 points in a game they couldn’t afford to lose.
Elsewhere Bridlington Town defeated Staveley Miners Welfare to remain 3rd in the NCEL Premier Division while in the division below Hall Road beat Grimsby Borough 1-0 at home to sit 3rd in NCEL Division One. Hull City Ladies were also victorious beating Morecambe Ladies 2-1 to remain top of the Women’s Premier League Northern Division One.
Rugby League: In Super League Hull FC picked up their first home win of the season as they defeated St Helens 24-14. After a sloppy first half from both sides the second half had everything and despite the visitors best efforts the Black and Whites sealed the win in the last minute with Albert Kelly going under the sticks for his second try of the game.
In the Championship Hull KR maintained their 100% start to the season as they hammered Dewsbury 48-8. The Robins are already looking good to top the Championship as they sit 4 points clear after 6 games.
Rugby Union: It was a good weekend for two of our sides. Hull RUFC won a high scoring games 42-22 against Cleckheaton whilst Hullensians comfortably beat Yarnbury 27-7.
Hull Ionians played out a stalemate with Blaydon as they drew 17-17. A late converted try from Callum Irvine drew Ionians level to prevent a disappointing defeat at home.
Elsewhere: Hull Pirates had another disappointing night on the road as they went down 5-2 to Swindon Wildcats. Lee Bonner opened the scoring the first minute but the Wildcats quickly took control and a late Ugnius Cizas goal was nothing more than a consolation for the Pirates.
Both the Men’s and Women’s teams for Hull Thunder Volleyball recorded 3-0 wins in the YPL matches. The Thunder Men won 3-0 at Sheffield whilst the Thunder Women beat Barton.
