Seconds out as BPA Raptors rip up Oakworth

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Silsden’s goal comes under pressure during a 7-3 under-16s loss to Thornton United in the Craven League Silsden’s goal comes under pressure during a 7-3 under-16s loss to Thornton United in the Craven League

A powerful second-half display saw BPA Raptors under-11s pull clear to beat a spirited Oakworth Wasps side 7-1 in the Craven League.

Goals from Vincent Henderson and Louis Price eased the Raptors 2-0 up but Oakworth pulled one back and only a superb save by Spencer Mitchell kept his side ahead going into the break.

But the second period belonged to BPA as they added a string of goals courtesy of Billy Lee Firth (2), Jordan Rushworth and James Hebb, while Price added his second.

BPA’s under-15s put on their best display of the season and were unlucky not to get anything out of the game as it finished 3-1 to opponents Thackley Crusaders.

Saqib Mohammed passed for Billy Enoch to score his 11th goal of the season after Thackley had surged 2-0 ahead.

The second half then saw BPA hit the crossbar and Connor Barley headed inches wide before Thackley killed off the fightback with a late on third goal.

Stand-in goalkeepers Kayode Ajayi and Brandon Doherty impressed but the man of the match award went to Isaac Khan.

BPA under-18s were 4-0 winners against Long Lee thanks to goals from David Rooney, Josh Finan, Harry Hall and Danny Parkinson, while Pat McKendrick was man of the match.

Wyke Wanderers under-tens’ A team progressed to the last 16 of the Huddersfield League Cup with a narrow 3-2 win at home to Cumberworth.

The game could have gone either way, with both keepers being tested to the full as the ball stuck in the mud at times.

Wyke took the lead from a corner as Kieran Mcguire forced an own goal after a rare venture into the box from his usual defensive position.

Cumberworth equalised before the interval but Reece Clay restored Wanderers’ lead in the second half and Stan Cahill earned some breathing space when converting Jack Leach’s cross.

Matthew Leaper was beaten for a second time in the Wyke goal to set up a nervous conclusion but that proved the end of the scoring.

The Wanderers B team were on the wrong end of a 5-0 scoreline at Shelf A, although they did not concede their first goal until 25 minutes into the encounter.

Huddersfield League action saw Jordan Styslo shoot Bradford Warriors under-11s into an early lead at Howden Clough but they had to play most of the game a player short and eventually lost 3-1.

Callum Marshall went close to adding a second Warriors goal but his free-kick was well saved by the opposition goalkeeper.

Howden Clough equalised before half-time and gradually began to make their extra man count, although the Warriors continued to create chances.

The hosts added two more goals before the end to thwart the efforts of a depleted Warriors side who battled well, with Styslo and Brandon McDonagh sharing the man of the match award.
