ST BEDES are now second in the Yorkshire Amateur League Championship after winning 3-2 at Leeds Independent - but they have played as many as three games more than clubs around them.

Jermaine Moyce continued his red-hot form, beating the offside trap to put Bedes in front and adding his second 10 minutes later with a fine finish.

A lapse in concentration allowed Independent to reduce the arrears and, playing uphill in the second half, Bedes conceded an equaliser with 20 minutes to go.

It was a real backs-to-the-wall effort from the Bradford side, who defended magnificently before snatching a last-minute winner through Kristaps Balodis.

Prospect's four-game winning streak in Division Three of the Yorkshire Amateur League was ended by North Leeds, who triumphed 5-2 at their Idle-based hosts.

James Barker and Patrick Green were on target for the home side, who trailed 2-1 at the break and slipped further behind in the second half.

Dan Blissett, man of the match Ash Cooper, Matt Harding and Aiden Parker (2) netted the North Leeds goals, leaving Prospect seventh and the visitors in fifth.

Farsley Celtic Juniors lead the Premier Division with 25 points out of a possible 27 after they hammered visitors Ealandians 7-0.

In a game switched to a 4G pitch, Dave Walker put Farsley ahead with a 25-yard daisy-cutter that went in off the post. Lee Ranson made it 2-0 at the break before the hosts ran away with it in the second period.

Danny Lyons scored a hat-trick and Louis Surtees hit a double, including a sublime 20-yard free-kick.

Drighlington remain second after a 3-0 home win over Horsforth St Margaret's thanks to goals from Brett Thompson, Josh Frankland and Shane Sowden.

Farsley Celtic Juniors Reserves continued their progression in Division One with a 3-0 win at Whitkirk Wanderers.

Cameron Whalley was the Farsley danger-man, who struck twice before Andy Rothery added a third.

In Division Four, Karl Best gave St Bedes Reserves a 1-0 interval lead at home to Rothwell Juniors, who then levelled.

Best doubled his tally but Rothwell gained a second equaliser, leaving Bedes to rue missing a penalty.

Drighlington Reserves are firing on all cylinders at the top following a 3-1 win at Calverley United Reserves. Scorers were Kieron Boulton, Ryan Rhodes and Nathan Chadwick.
