After two defeats, Dudley Hill Rangers under-eights made the long journey to Leeds Maccabi worthwhile by emphatically breaking their duck in the Keybury Junior League.
With man of the match Jack Moffat leading the way with a double hat-trick and Adam Morris scoring four, Rangers won 11-0, Josh Whitford rounding off the victory.
Rangers under-nines switched their match to Saturday to help visitors Albion Sports, who sunk them 6-2, Dominic Parish and Callum Thornton netting for Rangers.
Albion’s goals came from Sohail Mahmood (4) and captain Raushan Sandhu (2) but their man of the match was Sanjeevan Singh, who made a string of outstanding saves.
Keighley Shamrocks Crusaders under-tens proved no match for Rangers in the second half, conceding six times in a 7-0 defeat.
Karl Kwedi opened the scoring in the first minute, but needed Rajan Sandhu to palm a fierce shot around his right post to keep them in front at half-time in what had been an even contest.
However, Crusaders did not show up after the interval, and Kwedi’s hat-trick was complimented by goals from Harry Norton, Niall Griffiths, Jake Softley and Rhys Hadley.
Spencer Dunk was man of the match after pulling the strings in midfield.
BPA Lizards under-12s scored four goals in five minutes on the way to an 11-1 victory over Leeds Maccabi.
Alex Gibson gave BPA the lead in the sixth minute with a lightning run and finish through the middle, and Stefan Giangregorio added their second ten minutes later before Lewis Melvin made it 3-0.
Maccabi pulled one back within a minute with a stunning 20-yard free-kick, but after the break came Lizards’ purple patch, Dominic Corps and Melvin both netting braces, giving Melvin two hat-tricks in three matches.
Further goals then came from McKenzie Lister, Lewis Moorhouse, Niall Armstrong and Kaylum Johnson, with Melvin finding the net twice more, only to have both chalked off for offside.
Baildon Trinity Dynamos under-eights Sky won an entertaining game 4-0 against Calverley A with a Hamish McCallum thunderbolt and goals from Max Paterson, Ben Cockcroft and man of the match Harvey Menzies sealing the win. Alfie Turner and Lyndon Bateson also impressed.
Baildon Trinity Dynamos under-11s won 6-0 at Keighley Shamrocks Warriors.
Louis Fialdini scored two, man of the match Courbon Carr, Louis Turner and the impressive Jack Backhouse also scoring before an own goal finished the game.
Louis Anderson and Will Robinson gave solid performances in what was a closer game than the result suggests.
Wyke Wanderers under-tens have climbed into second place in the Huddersfield RCD Junior League after a 6-0 win at Elland.
Playing uphill in the first half, Wyke netted three from Jack Leach (2) and Stan Cahill.
The second half was more of the same for Elland, with Leach adding two and Jacob Smith scoring the last.
Wanderers’ B team were also at Elland and won 11-3, with hat-tricks for Loui Cook – all in the first half – and Tyrese Liu.
Other first-half scorers were Logan Jean Jacques and Ranganai Muza, who both scored in the second half, Downes completing the rout.
Bradford Warriors under-11s were seeking an improvement, and found it in a 6-2 victory at Kirkheaton B.
In what was a great team performance, Jordan Styslo grabbed a hat-trick in a solid display, new signing Roberto McFarlane also getting a treble and winning the man of the match trophy.
Albion Sports under-13s made a slow start to their Craven, Aire & Wharfe Junior League match at home to Bingley, going behind early on.
However, their reply was swift, and they then went ahead with a goal from top scorer Ibrahim Hussain.
Albion then began to dominate possession, good passing putting the visitors on the back foot for most of the first half.
Sports added a further three goals before half-time from Junaid Holden and Waqas Iqbal to lead 5-1, and it was much the same story in the second half.
Hussain completed a hat-trick, befitting the leading marksman in the division, and man of the match Holden was also on target.
Bingley did pull a couple of goals back but Sports were generally dominant in a 10-3 scoreline.
Sutton Rascals under-14s defeated Manningham 9-1 with goals from Tom Oddy (3), Dylan Cope (2), man of the match Joe Smith (2), Freddy Maddocks – a 25-yarder into the top corner – and a first for the club from Luke Mackleston. Manningham made it 7-1 before half-time.
BPA under-15s put in their best display of the season, despite losing 2-1 at home to Cross Hills.
The visitors took the lead in the first half and soon made it two when an inswinging corner, with a little help from the wind, made its way into the back of the BPA net.
However, defiant defending and brave goalkeeping from Josh Halpin paid off in the second half when BPA got on the scoresheet from a Billy Enoch corner that hit the bar and was nodded in by Lewis Haynes.
This made for a tense final ten minutes but Cross Hills hung on to claim the three points.
Halpin was, not surprisingly, BPA’s man of the match but there were also impressive performances from James Watmough and Luke Taylor.
BPA Juniors Raptors under-11s continued their impressive start to the season with a 10-1 win over Calverley in Division C.
Louis Price's rasping shot opened the scoring for the Raptors but Calverley quickly equalised with a powerful free-kick.
Solid defending from Joseph Clancy and Rhys Sanasy ensured Vincent Henderson's header for the Raptors was the difference at half-time, with Raptors leading 2-1.
Raptors went to town in the second half, however, with the final goal tally being Price (3), Henderson (3). Chris Byron (2), Jordan Rushworth, and Billy-Lee Firth, who notched a fine individual effort.
