Max York strikes late to earn Histon victory over Gorleston
Max York's late header helped Histon to beat Gorleston 2-1 on Tuesday night and extend their lead at the top of the Thurlow Nunn League, Premier Division.
Dan Brown had given the Stutes the lead in the 17th minute, but Mitch McKay's free kick levelled matters in the 65th minute.
However, on 89 minutes, York got up highest to head home a corner from the left and, with Woodbridge losing to Godmanchester, it means Histon have gone seven points clear at the top.
The win followed a 0-0 home draw with Stowmarket Town on Saturday.
The Stutes are away to Haverhill Rovers this Saturday (March 9).
Meanwhile, Ryan Sharman was on target for Cambridge City as they drew 1-1 at Kempston Rovers in Evo-Stik League South, Division One Central.
They travelled to Bedfordshire looking to erase the memory of a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Aylesbury, but had to battle back from going behind.
Joel Gyasi and Mickey Davies tested Kempston keeper James Martin, but the deadlock was broken in the 57th minute.
Scott Joseph laid the ball off to Daniel Akubuine, who fired through City keeper Jamie Head’s legs to give his side the lead.
City responded and were back on level terms in the 66th minute when Sharman pounced to score from close range.
There was a late scare for City when captain Ross Paterson had to clear off the line, but they held on for a draw that moves them up a place to 12th in the table.
The Lilywhites are at home to play-off chasing Berkhamsted this Saturday (March 9).
