Tyersal eased into the quarter-finals of the West Riding County Amateur League Premier Division Cup with a comfortable 3-0 round one victory over visitors Kirkburton.
Having let a 3-1 advantage slip at home to the same opponents seven days earlier in the league to draw 4-4, Tyersal tightened up their defence in this repeat encounter.
Two goals from Aaron Heywood and one from Liam Shields secured a trip to Hall Green United in the last eight.
Campion and Salts created few clear chances to win the game in normal time as they clashed for the second time in consecutive weekends.
With the lottery of a penalty shoot-out looming, it took a wicked deflection off Campion’s Danny Brown eight minutes from the end of extra-time to settle the tie 1-0 in favour of Salts.
A trip to holders Ovenden West Riding awaits for them in the quarter-finals.
Bay Athletic – who, despite their dominance in the league over the past few seasons have never won the Premier Division Cup – accounted for Huddersfield rivals Storthes Hall 5-0.
Littletown and Marsden were locked at 3-3 at the end of normal time, before a rush of five goals in extra-time gave Marsden a 7-4 victory.
The tie between Overthorpe and Golcar United also required extra-time before Golcar prevailed 4-2.
Albion Sports’ hopes of success in the Division One Cup was shattered at Halifax Irish when the hosts won 4-1. Strikes from Jordan Corduri, Gareth Sherwood, Gareth Jones and Mick Gregory cancelled out Sajed Ali’s Strike for Albion.
Ventus Yeadon Celtic’s hopes of a cup run were ended when, despite two goals from Sean Jackson, they bowed out 5-2 at Huddersfield YMCA.
Hunsworth kept their interest in three cups alive (the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup and the Bradford FA Cup being the others) with a 3-2 home victory over Westbrook YMCA, thanks to two goals from Lee Davey and one by Andrew Wood.
Second-half goals from Mathew Homm and Jordan Lazenby secured Salts Reserves a 2-1 victory at Tingley Athletic in round one of the Division Two Cup.
Steeton retained their place at the top of the Premier Division after Hall Green United and Ovenden West Riding – who could have both moved level on points with a win – shared the spoils after drawing 2-2.
Wibsey picked up their first Division One victory when James Crossland and new signing Michael Hall scored in their 2-0 home win over Campion Reserves.
Steeton Reserves lost their top spot on goal difference in Division Two to Bay Athletic Reserves when they lost 5-2 to the Huddersfield side. Mark McGee scored Steeton’s goals.
Dudley Hill Rangers picked up only their second win of the season when a Chris Gibbons hat-trick, added to others from Mark Wilcox, Lewis Carroll and Joe Broadhead, accounted for Hunsworth Reserves 6-0.
