ONLY two games survived the wet conditions in the Get Smart Group Kirklees Sunday League with Town Rangers, second in Division II, making the most of their chance.
Rangers beat basement side Escorpians 6-2 at Lindley Rec with Raymond Clayton making an impressive debut for Town.
Clayton broke the deadlock in the first half with a neat finish and soon after Rangers doubled their lead with a thunder bolt from Richard Boustead.
Clayton then latched on to a through ball to get his second of the game just before half time as Escorpians barely threatened in the opening 45 minutes.
The second half commenced with the pitch a mudbath and play was almost impossible in the middle of the pitch.
Rangers struck first with Richard Boustead getting his second of the game but, after Neil Boustead and Peter Rice rattled the woodwork, Escorpians then scored twice in five minutes.
Rattled Rangers were left facing a tense last 10 minutes, but responded perfectly with two. Rice hit Town’s fifth before Richard Boustead completed his hat trick.
Clifton and Wellington Westgate fought out a 4-4 draw at Rastrick High School.
Clifton took the lead in the first half but Wellington equalised through Chris Valentine – his second goal in two games – who scored from 35 yards.
Clifton restored their lead in the second half and then went 3-1 up before Wellington hit back through John Tordoff.
Clifton scored again, but Wellington tied the contest with two goals from Christy Regen.Š
