Grimsby Borough slip to defeat at Teversal
GRIMSBY Borough slipped to a 1-0 defeat at in-form Teversal.
A Kye Pilmore strike, 10 minutes after half-time, was enough to seal the Nottinghamshire side's fifth victory on the bounce.
The visitors began the game brightly with Jake Thompson forcing home keeper Herring to drop the ball at a corner.
However, no-one from Borough was able to capitalise and the ball was quickly hacked away.

Borough were up for the battle and restricted their hosts to few opportunities meaning the two sides went in goalless at the break.
Borough came out after the restart strongly and Louis Grant soon found Steve Davis with a superb cross to the far post.
However, Davis' header struck a defender and was quickly cleared up-field.
But then on 55 minutes, it was the hosts who broke the deadlock when Pilmore stuck out a leg to deflect a cross and wrong-foot Liam Higton in the Borough goal.
Joint-bosses Nigel Fanthorpe and Steve Newby responded to that disappointment by making a switch that saw Grant pushed further up the field.
And it nearly paid dividends but, after racing clear and with Herring rushing out of his goal, Grant could only steer the ball past the post.
Matt Hall then tested the Tevie keeper again with a powerful strike from 20-yards that he pushed round the post.
From the resulting corner, Thompson got up well to power a header towards the top corner, but somehow Herring stretched to push the ball away.
With the clock ticking, Grant was played through once more but once again, his shot went past the post with only Herring to beat.
After the game, Fanthorpe said: "We put in a totally committed performance and we deserved more. Again the performance was good but the result was poor.
"We need to regroup and carry the same commitment into tonight's trip to Dinnington Town."
Fanthorpe also labelled the pitch as "a quagmire".
