Bradford City Ladies kicking heels after hitting Hill for six
After a lengthy lay-off set back their promotion plans, the last thing Bradford City Ladies needed was a blank week in the Northern Combination.
With games against second-placed South Durham and back-to-back clashes with leaders Chorley in the next month City, still unbeaten, find themselves in a make or break scenario.
Leading scorer Mel Garside-Wight, a star of City's FA Women's Premier League side 15 years ago, rolled back the years when she hit a hat-trick in a convincing 6-0 win at Mossley Hill to take her season's tally to 14 and collect her third match point. An own goal and one each from Jodie Redgrave and Caroline Omboyi completed the scoring.
Huddersfield Town made comfortable progress in the West Riding County Cup when they saw off Regional League side Guiseley 5-0 to clinch a semi-final tie with Bradford City conquerors Castleford White Rose at County FA headquarters.
Hopes of a derby final were dashed when Kirklees, from Regional League (South), were beaten 4-2 in their clash with Town's Combination rivals Leeds City Vixens. Amy Hesselden and Yasmin Ayub were the Kirklees scorers.
It is a return to league action for Town this week when they go to fourth-placed Sheffield United Community hoping to improve their mid-table position in the Northern Combination.
Ossett Albion take time out from their relegation struggle in the Regional League (South) to entertain leaders Doncaster Belles in the League Cup before travelling to Doncaster in the league next week.
The City A team are in a comfortable mid-table position after a 1-1 draw with Keighley Oaks at Marley but Keighley's position is less secure, lying just three points ahead of Ossett having played three games more. Kelly McLoughlin was on target for City, with Beth Nixon scoring for Keighley.
City turn their attention to a League Cup trip to Scunthorpe this week, while Guiseley go to Barnsley for an all-Premier Division tie.
In the West Riding League, Premier Ossett Town have no game again, their anticipated relegation clash with Bradford Park Avenue was postponed, while Division Three basement club Cleckheaton Sporting go to Amaranth having lost 12-0 at home.
