There was a full programme of fixtures for Bradford Sunday Alliance League teams yesterday, with a mixture of league and Bradford & District FA Cup ties.
Lane Ends came from two goals down to deservedly beat Premier Division Thornton United, with goals from Andy Brown and a Dale Howard brace, to set up a semi-final against top-flight Dudley Hill Rangers.
Only one match was played in the Premier Division, and, despite a Sam Digby penalty for Wyke Wanderers, they were beaten 5-1 by Mill lane.
After their cup escapades, White Eagles returned to Division One action against Tyersal.
The pitch made for a scrappy affair but the hosts had just the better of the first half, Jamil Jospeh netting a first-half penalty.
Then Tate Williams was put through against the visitors' keeper and finished, leaving the County Cup quarter-finalists with a 2-0 half-time lead.
Eagles were quickly into their stride in the second half and scored again through Marvin Sorhaindo.
The visitors then scored against the run of play and Eagles keeper Andy Smith was brought into action but they quickly restored their advantage through a well-deserved goal from Tobiah Pascal.
Tyersal never gave up and brought the game to 4-2 before Sorhaindo scored his second of the game, a consolation making it 5-3 to White Eagles.
After dominating the first half against leaders Victoria Rangers, Peel Park were 2-0 down at the interval through a quick Christian Hotte brace.
The second half went the way of the hosts but this time they made their domination pay. Mark Shute scored his first club goal in nine years to half the arrears, and shortly afterwards Adam Turner squared things up.
After that the home team scored at will, with another two from Turner to complete his hat-trick, a well-taken hat-trick from Terence Hargreaves and a goal each from Ryan Dunn and Liam Roper giving Park a convincing victory.
The big game in Division 2B was won by leaders Swaine Green, who defeated second-placed Grass Greener United 5-2.
Visitors Swaine Green started the better team on a difficult surface but United came into the game after 15 minutes and put sustained pressure on their opponents' goal.
The hosts couldn’t turn this pressure into goals, however, and on the half-hour, with their first corner of the game, Green took the lead through a Carl Priestley header.
Swaine Green kept up the momentum without creating any clear-cut chances, and it was from a long clearance that caused confusion in the home defence that Elliott Holmes nipped in to make it 2-0 after 40 minutes.
The visitors started the second half in rampant form, and after 57 minutes a diagonal ball from the influential Kevin Sanasy found Chris Edgley at the back post, and he scored Swaine Green's third.
The hosts hit back on the hour when a Chris Sedgwick throw was headed in by Craig Wiseman for his first goal of the season.
Undeterred by this setback, Green came back on the attack and it was no surprise when Carl Priestley rifled home his second from just inside the area to make it 4-1 after good play from Holmes on the right.
Player-manager Priestley completed his hat-trick in the 80th minute, Scott Etherington being sent the wrong way from the penalty spot.
Bradley Goodaire made the score 5-2 from another Sedgwick throw-in the 89th minute to give United a consolation but the leaders were full value for their victory and opened up a nine-point advantage.
Eccleshill WMC continued their recent good form with a 3-1 win over Aire Athletic Reserves in Division 3A.
The clubmen were indebted to goalkeeper Luke Thompson for several good saves in the first half and took the lead in the 25th minute via Vinnie Walker from the spot before Joe Sanderson finished well for the second goal in the 60th minute.
Walker then scored direct from a corner before the hosts ran in a late consolation.
