Six-shooters Buttershaw White Star brush aside Peel Park
Six different players found the net as Buttershaw White Star ran out easy Premier Division winners over Peel Park in the Bradford Sunday Alliance League.
The 6-0 victory kept White Star second in the table as Jordan Missin netted a penalty on his return, along with goals from Danny Cunningham, Garry Tyson, Andrew Tasker, Graeme Sides and Gareth Carney.
Thornton snatched a point thanks to a late penalty converted by Dave Wilson after Sandy Lane had given an otherwise faultless defensive display having scored first.
The defending champions earned a two-goal interval lead with strikes by Joe Jagger from a cross by Curtis McMahon, who then added the second himself.
The hosts halved the advantage with a well-taken goal by Jordan Smith as they enjoyed a spell of dominance.
But Bowling finished strongly as Danny Lawlor, Chris Wood and Paul Helliwell rounded off the scoring.
Wyke Wanderers scored three times through Sam Holmes, Glynn Hirst and Nick Wade but unfortunately visitors Relay bagged five in reply.
Victoria Rangers and Cuedos Rangers shared six goals and the points in a feisty top-half Division One contest.
Dave Geddes edged Victoria in front but, after the visitors had equalised, the hosts were reduced to ten men and Cuedos soon moved 2-1 up.
David Bairstowe headed home to restore parity just before the break and there were then only two goals in the second half, although Victoria’s came courtesy of an opposing player.
Buttershaw Celtic are now five points clear at the summit after an emphatic 8-1 victory at third-placed Bradford Phoenix. Nathan Ramsden hit the goal of the match with a 20-yard chip over the advancing keeper.
Wyke Rangers are in pole position at the top of Division 1A after dominating to win 2-0 at Stocks Lane Rangers, who slipped from fourth to sixth as a result.
Brett Missin went close for Wyke in the first quarter when he fired against the woodwork but his side then moved into top gear.
Dan Penny slotted home to put the visitors in front and Liam Hainsworth doubled the cushion with a shot from outside the penalty area.
Division 2B leaders Cartwright Lister maintained their 100 per cent start with a 3-1 victory at Buttershaw Rangers.
Grass Greener United are waiting in the wings in third position after keeping up their challenge by edging out fourth-placed Salthorn WMC 3-2.
Hendrie Iwanczuk scored twice and although one of the goals was unfortunately at the wrong end, he was bailed out by further strikes from United team-mates Craig Marshall and Rob Coulter.
A top-of-the-table Division 3B thriller finished all square at 4-4 between leaders Park, who dropped their first points of the season, and third-placed Lyceum.
