BRADFORD (Park Avenue) Women suffered similar misfortune to the men's side in a cup final on Bank Holiday Monday.

Avenue wrapped up their season with a first-ever appearance in the West Riding County Women's Football League Cup Final against Farsley Celtic Junior First.

But, much like the men's team who bowed out of the playoffs last week, Avenue were unable to overcome their lower-league rivals.

They were the ones who had first blood though when Jade Nelson struck home in the first half.

Nat Bell - who has impressed all season - doubled Avenue's lead when she went one-on-one with the Farsley keeper and slotted the ball home after putting her off-guard.

But, Farsley could not be denied for long and scored either side of the break to make it 2-2.

One of those goals was a cheeky chip over the Avenue keeper.

The game could have gone either way, but a strong second-half performance from Farsley resulted in a late winner and them taking home the League Cup.

In the League Shield, Brighouse Athletic were tying 1-1 at half-time with Middleton Athletic.

Mel Griffiths's goal for Brighouse was cancelled out by an unstoppable shot from a Middleton player, which gave keeper Amy Jones no chance.

The second half saw Brighouse take control though with a Sarah Hemingway brace and a final goal from Phoebe Durkin giving them the result.

Several divisional winners and runners-up spots were also confirmed in women's football at the weekend.

Guiseley saw five fired past them at runaway division champions Blackburn Rovers.

But, they managed to muster a consolation courtesy of Charlotte Gill and finished in eight.

Brighouse Town completed a 16-game unbeaten run, with a 3-1 victory at Leeds United, to finish second in Division One North.

Lavinia Nkomo opened the scoring for the visitors, before a swift response from United's Rebecca Hunt made it all-square at the break.

That was all Leeds gave in the game though.

A brilliant individual goal from Emma Pilling set Brighouse on the right track and then Kayleigh Bamford wrapped it up with a 25-yard strike.
