Steeton 4 Storthes Hall 4
A 95th minute penalty from Lee Reilly ensured Steeton grabbed a share of points on Saturday in a thrilling game at Summerhill Lane.
Tim Hird and a earlier spot kick from Reilly had put us 2-0. Storthes then pulled a goal back before Joe Park restored the two goal advantage.
The Huddersfield then responded in superb fashion racing into a 4-3 lead before the late drama ensured that The Chevron's got their season up and running at last.
Storthes Hall Next Up
Storthes Hall are the visitors to Summerhill Lane tomorrow, with Steeton looking to get back on a run following three defeats in their opening three games. Andy Holden and Matty Kershaw return following suspension, whilst Danny McNulty sits out the game as his ban was extended to five games at the start of the season.

Salts 4 Steeton 1
Steeton produced a woeful display last night that again asked more questions than provided answers. Despite defeat in their first two games there were signs that things were coming together for Steeton. However last night they failed to show any of the traits that they had in the previous two games.
Salts took an early lead before Lee Reilly levellled and poor defending handed Salts the lead again early in the second period. The introduction of Joe Park and Josh Metcalfe provided a bit of spark that had been missing. But two late sucker punches ensured that Steeton left pointless and left manager, Roy Mason frustrated and looking to bring a couple of bodies in before Saturday's home clash with Storthes Hall.
