POSTPONEMENTS limited the number of women’s football games at the weekend, with Bradford City’s FA Women’s National League Division One North clash against Chorley called off for example, but there were still goals aplenty.

Tyersal quickly popped three goals in at the start of their West Riding County Women’s Football League First Division match against Republica Internationale, with Abbie Tate, Courteney Thompson and Demi Pringle all on target.

What followed was a gruelling encounter in the mud, as both teams struggled to keep the ball moving on the sticky pitch.

With 10 minutes to go, Tyersal were looking comfortable, before Republica’s Grace Highwood scored a brace to make it 3-2. But Tyersal resisted late pressure to take the points.

Thackley found themselves 2-0 down to Leeds Medics and Dentists in the County Premier.

Megan Butterworth scored a penalty to halve the arrears, but the Dennygirls ended up losing 3-1 to the league leaders.

Thackley’s second string lost 2-1 at Ackworth in the Second Division.

Brighouse Town Women continued their FA Cup run at FAWNL rivals Chester-le-Street.

Town won 3-0, scoring all their goals early on, with two from Abi Lee and another from Becky Gompertz taking them through to the second round, where they entertain Newcastle United.

Farsley Celtic Women’s new signings, ex-Bantams keeper Aimee Routledge and Camille Kerford, went straight into their starting line-up for their North East Regional Women’s Football League Premier Division game against York City.

City scored first with a well-taken shot from distance. Ellie Casper equalised, but her team were 2-1 down at the break.

After a spell of sustained Celtic pressure in the second half, City added a third against the run of play, before a mix-up led to a fourth late on.

Bradford (Park Avenue) were without a game, but they have a local derby this Sunday at home to Farsley Celtic Juniors, who beat NERWFL Southern Division leaders Altofts 4-0, thanks to goals from Jas Cooper, Sarah Kerford, Kimberly Clydesdale and Katie Platts.

Burley Trojans continued their friendlies with a home match against Ossett United’s reserve side, who won 5-2 in tough conditions. The Troggs’ scorers were Beth Hirst and Heather Fisher-Pedley.
