Chris Burns' five goals ensured an 11-9 victory over Bridgefield but they could easily have slipped up against South Derbyshire, who led all the way until a Dean Toomey goal edged York into the lead for the first time at 10-9 in the final quarter. Davide Bernardi equalised from a penalty and it required another Burns goal - his sixth of the game - to clinch the points for York at 11-10.
Altogether, it was a disappointing weekend for South Derby. They also lost by a single goal - 14-13 - to Bridgefield, who were 14-12 up until less than two minutes from the end when Neil Swansea scored. South Derby hit the bar and missed the target as further chances presented themselves in the final minute.
