A CHRIS Wood hat-trick helped West Bowling move into the quarter-finals of the Bradford & District FA Sunday Senior Cup with a 4-1 win over Hand & Shuttle at Emsley's Recreation Ground.

However, it was the visitors who took the lead in the tenth minute when Michael Maclean netted from close range after a ball into the box caused confusion.

West Bowling were level five minutes later though when Chris Wood's accurate shot from the edge of the edge of the box went into the bottom corner from Joe Wood's cross.

After a first half that lacked quality, Bowling went in front four minutes into the second half from Wood's near-post flick from a cross by man of the match Steve Bargh.

Wood then completed his hat-trick and made the game safe in the 76th minute from a Patrick Hollinger corner.

Another Hollinger corner brought the final goal for Chris Hanney, who knocked home the rebound after his header had been saved.

It was a mixed day for the two Thornton teams.

United were beaten 8-1 by Premier Division team Oakenshaw in the first round, but the reserve team had a terrific 3-1 victory over fellow Championship team Heaton Athletic in the second round.

Luke Sharpe bagged a brace for the visitors, but the goal of the game was scored Danny Walker, who was assisted by Russ Parr.

Championship team Westwood Park hit nine against Premier Division outfit Bolton Woods, who now play Thornton United Reserves in the second round.

Wyke Rangers lost their second cup match of the season when they were beaten 4-2 by Premier Division Thornbury Celtic, while Prospect beat Harrogate Road 10-3 in another second-round tie.

In the Bradford & District FA Sunday Cup, Tyersal beat Peacock Bar in a second-round match.

After an even and goalless first half, Tyersal hit four goals - from Adam Jarrett, Josh Finan, Kieran Suddards and substitute Luke Cook.

However, an incredible six ties had to be decided by penalty shoot-outs, Eccleshill Lane Ends and Great Horton sharing eight goals in normal time before Lane Ends squeezed through 5-4 on spot-kicks.

One team who did not require penalties was Eastward, who hit Hunsworth for 11 at Peel Park.

There were hat-tricks for Jamie Sugden and John Selby, a brace for Chris Webster and singles for Simon Scundaberry, Jordan Cuthbert and Lewis Cuthbert.
