CARDS: GREEN: Jack Richards

A first half blitz by the third team saw off visiting Harrogate. Saul Halliday opened the scoring when he was first to react to a save from the Harrogate keeper.
Harry Eddols doubled the scoring when he finished an eye catching team move and Mark Mobbs scored a third minutes later.
At this point Harrogate were on the ropes.
They felt they were getting the worst of the umpiring decisions and berated the officials over many of their calls.
This affected their concentration and Sheffield were able to turn over possession at will, Ben Kershaw putting in a particularly impressive ball winning display in midfield.
The home team kept up the high standard of play and further goals by Duncan Longson and AJ Blyth meant Sheffield had a commanding five goal lead at half time.
The second half was a relatively drab affair. Harrogate changed their system which made them more solid.
Equally Sheffield were unable to hit the heights of the first half.
Much of the half was fought out in the midfield, with neither team carving out many clear cut chances.
The visitors did manage to pull a goal back when a half saved short corner was tapped in.
But apart from this they didn't trouble the home defence.
Blyth completed the scoring in the dying minutes when he converted a penalty flick awarded for a foul on Eddols.
Sheffield will hope to repeat their first half performance next week when the take on table topping Huddersfield next week.
