Report: Reds earn Ferriby win

A Lee Vaughan peach of a goal features as Harriers win at North Ferriby United…

HARRIERS picked up a deserved 3-1 win over North Ferriby United on Saturday to keep up their sound National League North form.

Goals from George Waring, Joe Ironside and Lee Vaughan put the reds in total control, before a consolation effort put the hosts on the score sheet.

Harriers controlled the vast majority of the contest and, after Croasdale had seen a shot blocked, the visitors were ahead with 17 on the clock – Waring stretching superbly to turn in a flick on from O’Connor at a corner.

Three minutes later Ironside went close with a volley but would not be denied five further on as he got the decisive touch to a Vaughan delivery to put his team 2-0 up.

Only a superb save from home goalkeeper Durrant kept the score at two on the half-hour as he tipped over from Brown, before Croasdale’s curling shot also kept him busy.

The home got their first serious chance just three minutes after the restart as Clappison looked to tuck home at close range only to be thwarted by Nathan Vaughan – before the goalkeer’s namesake made it 3-0 to Harriers two after the hour, nipping into a gap in the area and lashing a volley into the far corner on the angle.

Weeks then tried his luck and saw an effort drop just wide of the post, before Ferriby began their best spell of the game, netting from a corner of their own through Mail’s far-post finish.

That was with around a quarter of an hour left. After, Johnson and Lofts both went close to making it 3-2 – the latter striking the outside of the post with a fine attempt – but Harriers edged through that passage and finished the game strongly.

In the final few moments, a Waring chip and a fine run and shot from Brown almost added a fourth.
