Wood you believe it as Campion crash out of County Cup
Campion, Salts and Steeton all made an early exit from the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup as West Riding County Amateur League sides had mixed first-round fortunes.
A hat-trick by Andy Wood accounted for Campion as they let slip an interval advantage to lose 3-2 at Hunsworth.
Two Chris McMahon goals wiped out Wood’s opener as Campion edged 2-1 in front but the second half belonged to the hosts and Wood in particular.
Salts and Steeton faced opposition from the West Yorkshire League and both were beaten in extra time.
Kyle Berry was on target for Salts but they eventually bowed out 2-1 at Wyke Wanderers.
Steeton had a home tie but were hustled out 3-1 by Whitkirk Wanderers after Lee Reilly’s equaliser had given his side hope.
Andy Gregory contributed a hat-trick as Ovenden West Riding brushed aside last season’s beaten finalists Lepton Highlanders 6-2.
Littletown gave Halifax League visitors Denholme United a goal-scoring lesson as they romped to an 8-0 victory.
Irfane Khan, Joe Jagger and Lamin Botang netted twice apiece, backed up by further strikes from Aiden Schofield and Jordan Maltas. Wibsey advanced 1-0 at home to Barnoldswick Town Reserves thanks to Jamie Brennan’s goal in the last five minutes.
Ventus-Yeadon Celtic were made to pay for poor finishing as visitors Westbrook YMCA advanced with a 3-1 win.
Adam Turner netted the Ventus consolation in response to Elliott Walker (2) and Chris Egan.
Campion Reserves and Tyersal Reserves both had easy passages into the second round of the West Riding County FA Challenge Trophy.
Chris Helliwell led the way with four of the Campion goals as they charged to a 13-1 victory at East Ardsley Wanderers.
And Tyersal were not far behind in the scoring stakes as they romped to an 11-0 verdict at Huddersfield side Britannia Sports Reserves, including a five-goal contribution from Damian Rushwith.
Steeton Reserves and Salts Reserves also made it through, although by much closer margins.
Both sides won 3-2, with Ross Bailey netting all the goals as Steeton beat Littletown Reserves while Salts edged past Wakefield League side Thorne courtesy of Sam Gooding, Chas Biggs, and Matthew Bailey.
There were also a handful of league matches, with Steeton’s cup-exit blow softened by the fact that they remained top of the Premier Division after rivals Bay Athletic lost 2-1 at home to Kirkburton.
Tyersal moved into the top half of the table after seeing off Hall Green United 3-0 as Mark Beale added to an Aaron Heywood double.
Two Aaron Basi goals for Albion Sports were not enough to seal victory in Division One as they lost 3-2 at home to Halifax Irish, who had Jordan Coduri (2) and Ashley Holmes on target.
