Tadcaster Albion let slip a two-goal lead in the second half as they fell to a first defeat under new boss Billy Miller.

Albion conceded in the last minute of the game as they lost 4-3 to Parkgate at the i2i Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Following on from their 6-3 win over Maltby Main on the opening day of the season, it was another case of goals galore for Miller’s men.

Liam Ormsby set the ball rolling as he coolly slotted home a first half penalty.

Parkgate replied through Oliver Graham ten minutes before the break, but Josh Greening instantly returned to the lead to Taddy.

Summer signing Nick Black stretched the advantage after half-time, but Parkgate were soon back to within one goal.

Albion goalkeeper Gary Stevens was kept busy until Parkgate equalised as Graham broke the offside trap to slot under the Taddy number one.

Graham then stunned the Albion faithful in stoppage time as he tapped into an empty net to wrap up his hat-trick.

Meanwhile, Knaresborough Town lost for a second time in four days as they went down 3-1 at Rossington Main in NCEL Division One.
