PHIL Brogan netted twice as West Bowling kicked off their defence of the Senior Cup with a 4-0 win at Wyke Rangers as Bradford Sunday Alliance League action centred on knockout action.

Second-tier outfit Rangers, who are without a win from three league games so far this season, fell behind after ten minutes courtesy of Brogan after good build-up work by Joe and Chris Wood.

It was 2-0 just 12 minutes later as Wood found the target, with Brogan putting his side three up early in the second half.

The final goal arrived after an hour as the cup holders showed their class when Chris Hanney fired home a volley from the edge of the area.

This was a highly accomplished performance from a Premier Division side boasting a nice blend of youth and experience.

Early top-flight leaders Olympic started on the cup trail with a convincing 5-2 victory at home to Championship pace-setters Toller, who had a player sent off after half an hour for a reckless challenge.

Hassan Khan netted both Toller replies but the dismissal of a second man 15 minutes from time proved too great a hurdle as Olympic pulled clear.

Steve Hollingsworth led the goal spree with a hat-trick, although the Premier side were pushed hard by determined opponents.

Ventus United and County Cup holders Sandy Lane met for a second successive week and once again United emerged victors, although they needed penalties to do so.

It finished 1-1 after goals by Anthony Hannan, for Ventus, and Chris Winn, before the hosts – who had won the previous week's league clash 2-0 – took the shootout 4-2.

The United hero was keeper Neville Grant-Ramsden, who saved two of the penalties.

Thornton United Reserves missed out in a thriller as they were beaten by the odd goal in five at home to Allerton.

United's scorers were Rob Hutchinson and James Seers but Ben O'Melia's double for the visitors and an own goal proved decisive.

Beldon Oddies ran riot at Throstle Nest United in the Intermediate Cup, with Matthias Britton bagging half their goals in a 10-1 outcome.

Britton's nap hand made it 12 goals in four games for him, while a hat-trick by Krishan Patel helped swell the tally.

Callum Docherty also scored five times in a winning debut for Parry Lane at Great Horton, who bowed out 8-3.

Tyersal beat Wibsey 4-3 on penalties after sharing six goals in the match itself. Jonny Brannan scored twice for Wibsey but they let slip a 3-1 lead at half-time.

Titans led 3-1 after 55 minutes at Delius but the teams finished up level at 5-5 before Titans won the shootout 6-5.

There was less joy for Titans Reserves as they went down by the odd goal in three at home to Hounds Athletic in the Amateur Cup.
