Tyersal’s bid to upset the form book and ease their West Riding County Amateur League relegation fears with victory at Premier Division leaders Ovenden West Riding faltered to a 5-2 defeat.

A goal by Alan Morley senior raised the Bradford side’s hopes but former Tyersal striker Andrew Bailey equalised and added a second goal before half-time after Scott Eastwood’s penalty had edged Ovenden into the lead.

Steve Fullard increased the advantage to 4-1 after an hour and although Wayne Walsh pulled one back, John Booth restored the three-goal cushion.

Second-placed Campion kept up the pressure on the leaders with a 2-0 home victory over Golcar United.

Liam Charles edged Campion ahead after 30 minutes and after defending in depth to stop the visitors from equalising, an own goal by Liam Rothery late into the second half secured the three points.

Salts made sure of preserving their top-flight place with a 3-2 home win over relegation-threatened Lepton Highlanders.

Chris McTigue, Jonny Cunnington and Andy Howland scored the goals that outweighed Sam Denton and Gary Bradley replies.

Mid-table duo Steeton and Littletown, who both play cup semi-finals on Thursday, played it safe and avoided injuries with a 0-0 draw.

Steeton face Goole United in the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup, while Littletown take on West Yorkshire League side Wyke Wanderers in the Heavy Woollen Challenge Cup.

Wibsey had scored a rush of Division One goals in recent weeks but hit the buffers at home to Tingley Athletic as Mark Cowell and Richard Brown earned a 2-0 away victory.

Basement side Overthorpe SC gave themselves hope of avoiding the drop with a convincing 4-0 victory at fellow strugglers Storthes Hall Reserves, who dropped to the bottom instead.

Mid-table duo Westbrook YMCA and Campion Reserves shared the spoils with a 2-2 draw.

League leaders Hunsworth kept on track for a possible double with a 3-1 victory at West Horton in the Division One Cup quarter-finals.

Kamran Khan gave West Horton the lead but Andy Wood, Lee McKeown and Jamie Bairstow turned the tables.

With the Division Two title having been already secured by Dudley Hill Rangers, DRAM Community missed a chance to seal the runners-up slot as visiting opponents Thornes moved above them with a dramatic 4-3 win.

The Huddersfield-based hosts led 3-1 with five minutes to go through goals by Craig Thompson (2) and Darius Matheson.

But Ben Long added to his first-half goal to level the scores, before two Ben Austin strikes in the final minute earned a victory that leaves Thornes two points clear with both sides having just one more game to play.
