CARDS: GREEN: Jack Rodgers
An 8-3 scoreline sounds like an exciting match but this encounter was rarely so.
York are propping up the Yorkshire premier league having conceded more than 70 goals so far this season and have lost every game.
However the visitors were positive throughout the game and went close from a short corner in the first minute.
Sheffield took the lead from a short corner of their own soon after soon after.
Tim Baker the scorer.
York continued to attack and what they lacked in class they made up for in pace and enthusiasm.
Sheffield struggled to find their grove and didn't really produce any sustained periods of quality, often gifting possession with over ambitious touches and passes.
But their superior quality upfront and some defensive errors by York allowed them to rack up goals as the half progressed. Duncan Longson, Harry Eddols, Ben Kershaw and Craig Hilton (with two) all got on the scoresheet.
York pulled one back when a crash ball was allowed into the D and a York forward deflected the ball past the keeper.
Sheffield had the last say in the half when Dan Bridges converted from a short corner via a generous deflection.
Maybe it was the 7-1 halftime scoreline or maybe it was tiredness from having played a game the previous day but Sheffield failed to play with their usual intensity in the second half.
There were some nice spells of possession but they rarely pressured the visitors defence. In fact the whole half was fairly uneventful.
Both teams traded goals from short corners, Mark Mobbs scoring for Sheffield.
York had the final say with a sloppy goal in the final minute.
Sheffield were disappointed with parts of the performance and there will be tougher challenges ahead but the victory capped a successful six point weekend.
