CROSSFLATTS Village took another step towards a cup and league double with a tight away victory.

The leaders of the Premier Division in the Bradford Sunday Alliance Football League came across a West Bowling side who had lost their last two, but had showed some decent form prior to that.

Bowling put up a fight, but were eventually beat by their visitors 2-1 which takes Village six points clear at the top as it was honours even between second and third.

With a strong wind blowing from goal to goal Bowling settled well and played some very attractive football with Man of the Match Paul Helliwell pulling the strings in centre midfield.

Crossflatts worked their way into the game, but the scoreline remained 0-0 at the break.

In the second-half, the game became more even with both sides pushing for an opening goal and it was Bowling who broke the deadlock.

The side's leading scorer, Joe Jagger, bent a free-kick around the wall and into the bottom of the net to put them one ahead.

Crossflatts began to exert some pressure on Bowling's defence and clipped the woodwork twice before Ryan Canning found himself unmarked in the box to head home his team's equaliser.

With just three minutes to go Crossflatts' fullback, Luke Richardson, stormed up the wing and shot from the edge of the box passed the outcoming keeper Ash Onitiri to decide the game.

Bolton Woods were unable to arrest a slump of four games without a point when they lost 3-1 at home to fifth-placed Station Hotel who have eyes on troubling the top three.

Station were in the lead all the way with a double for Ryan Basi and a goal for substitute Connor Bower doing the business.

Scott Mortimer got the consolation for Bolton Woods.

Station now leapfrog Oakenshaw into fourth, by virtue of goal difference, after they drew at Ventus Yeadon Celtic United.

In the Championship, Tyersal were much too strong for Rattlers and ran out easy winners by twelve goals to one.

The victory moves them from fourth into second, sitting four points off the leaders Northern who weren't in action at the weekend.

There was cup action for four of the league's side at the weekend.

Delius, Eccleshill Lane Ends, Mill Lane and Queensbury were involved in the semi-finals of the Intermediate Cup, with both ties taking place at Rawdon Meadow.

Division One Delius lost out 3-1 to Eccleshill who they may well face in Division Two next year if the former are relegated and the latter miss promotion.

The other tie saw Division Two's runaway-leaders Mill Lane beat Queensbury from the division above.

It was a tight affair, but the underdogs won 2-1 in the end.

In the basement division, Clayton Albion continued their march towards the title and promotion with a strong 6-1 win at mid-table AFC Undercliffe.

The game was in the balance at the break, with the scoreline set at 2-1.

But Clayton pulled through in the second, with a ten minute hat-trick from substitute Steven Wilkinson added to by Daniel Hardaker on the 85th minute.
