Slazenger thirds were well beaten 4-0 by a fitter, and more determined host side Hull YPI and could have no complaints about the margin of defeat.
Slazenger 3rd’s got back to winning ways with a solitart goal win over Hull YPI 2nd’s.

Despite last minute withdrawals, depleted Slazenger fifths took the honours as they won a hard-fought game at Hull YPI 2-1.
The match could have gone either way, with Slaz reaching into a 2-0 interval lead, courtesy of goals from Haydn Foster and Rob Stevens.
The second half saw intense pressure from Hull and Slaz conceded a goal to inject more tension into the game.
Slaz managed to hold on for the three points, with Foster and Ray Graham performing well, while defender Eddie Richardson was in super form.
Man of the match was Richard Hutchins, whose never-say-die tackling and attacking qualities personified the tremendous spirit within the fifths.
Their three-goal victory over Hull YPI was as comfortable as they come.
Two goals from Alec Gilston and a third from Nick Wood achieved Slazenger’s main objective for the season and a victory at home to Scarborough next Saturday, push-back 1:30pm might well decide the league championship as well.
