Beverley Town Reserves suffered their first defeat of the season to fellow pace setters North Cave as they were 3-1 in the East Riding County League.
Both sides went into this game with 100pc record but a good start by North Cave gave them the slight edge as the sides battled to get afoot hold in the game.
Rob Northen and Tom Davies both were guilty of missing cvhances, a pattern that was going to be a theme for the day.
North cave took the lead on 28 minutes from a well worked corner and soon doubled their lead after a goal keeping error from another corner allowed the striker to tap into an empty net.
Trailing by two goals at the breakgaffer Edward Grady tried to rally the team as he looked for an immediate response.
It seemed to work as Town created numerous chances but couldn’t find the back of the net.
Town were starting to turn the screw but couldn’t seem to score and was proving a frustrating afternoon.
Out of no where captain for the day, Davies picked up the ball drove through the middle of Caves midfield and unleashed an unstoppable left foot drive into the bottom corner.
As Town pilled on the pressure looking to get back on level terms but couldn’t find an equaliser. Cave broke away with just 5 minutes remaining scored their third to kill of the match.
A frustrating afternoon for Town who didn’t play to their strengths. The normally prolific strikers had an off day.
Defeat means Town have slipped down to second place in the East Riding County League, level of points with North Cave though have played one game more.
Grady will be looking for his side to bounce back next weekend when they travel to The RWB Playing Field to take on AFC North.
