WOMEN’S football was hit by weather-related postponements this week but unfortunately for Bradford (Park Avenue) their game did go ahead at Farsley.

Farsley Juniors ripped Avenue apart 7-1 in their North East Regional League Southern Division tie.

The visitors were not at their best, but still completed a rout, with four from Sarah Lawn, and Holly Bartleet, Jas Cooper and Katie Platts each getting on the scoresheet too.

The one saving grace for Bradford was an excellent solo strike from Millie West.

Much improvement is required going forward for the sixth-placed side who next travel to rock-bottom Harrogate Town development on January 3.

Farsley's development side were at West Riding County Second Division promotion challengers Phoenix, who were playing their first game at their new home venue, Thornton rec.

In a dominant performance, Phoenix suffocated Farsley into their half for most of the game.

Phoenix’ goalscorer Madhia Ishaq broke her arm after landing awkwardly.

There were braces from Henna Shaheen, Sabah Razaq and Ikra Ali. Alisha Needham’s debut goal was as good if not better than Son Heung-min's Puskas award-winning goal against Burnley.

The 8-1 hammering sees unbeaten Phoenix leap three places to top the league after Leeds City and Ackworth drew 1-1.

Farsley’s reserves and Huddersfield amateurs both put in a good performances at the hosts temporary home, Batley Sports.

Megan Potts’ early goal put Farsley on the back foot, but a Gemma Skinner penalty made it all-square at the break.

Poor defending of a set piece allowed Georgia Hamilton to score Amateurs’ second.

However, Farsley kept pushing, and were eventually rewarded with Anna Jimenez’ equaliser.
