10th v 6th
Linthorpe got off to a great start, when Olly Henderson flicked the ball over the goalkeeper with just over a minute gone. The home team went further ahead when Danny Malcolm was set up for an easy finish, then he headed home at the near post from a corner kick to make it 3-0 after 25 minutes.
The Thirsk 'keeper made some top draw saves to keep the score down, until the fourth goal finally arrived with fifteen minutes remaining, as Malcolm completed his hat-trick with a penalty.
This opened the floodgates, as the hosts constantly burst through on the counter attack with Jake Harland Adam Malcolm and a last minute goal from Keaton Oliver making it seven at full time.
