ST BEDE'S dug themselves out of a hole to beat fellow Championship side Beeston St Anthony's 3-2 after extra time in the Marflitt Trophy.

Knockout football was in the spotlight for Yorkshire Amateur League clubs and this tie was perhaps the pick of them as Bede's hit back from two goals down after an hour.

Adgykum Boateng and Tony Garth scored to leave Beeston in control and they also saw a penalty saved by Dan Lynes after Ian Horrocks had headed home on 70 minutes to reduce the arrears.

Horrocks doubled his tally to force extra time and Gareth Gilmartin reacted quickest after his own header had hit the bar as he netted the winner in the second period.

Grangefield OB won a penalty shoot-out 4-3 after a dramatic all-Premier tie at St Nicholas had finished 1-1.

Saints took an early lead through Yousif Tashani and won a late penalty which would have killed the tie. But keeper Tom Needham saved – then amazingly went up for a last-gasp corner and headed an equaliser to force extra time.

There were no further goals but Needham added to his influence on the game by saving one of the spot-kicks to seal his side's progress.

Second-placed Premier Division side Drighlington won at mid-table Championship outfit Shire Academics but were made to fight hard before pulling away to triumph 7-0.
