SECOND-round ties in the West Riding County FA Sunday Cup and Sunday Trophy took centre stage at the weekend.

In an all-Bradford Sunday Alliance League tie at Dam Lane, Premier Division side Ventus United proved too strong for Championship Division opponents Prospect and ran out 3-1 winners in the County Cup.

Billy Summers put hosts United in front with a long-distance free-kick into the top corner and he doubled the lead from the edge of the penalty area with another superb shot.

The visitors pulled one back but, with the home goal under siege, Paul Rhodes scored on a breakaway.

In another all-Alliance tie, Thornbury Celtic beat Swaine Green 6-2, while Thornton United progressed by beating Shipley Town 2-0 with Luke Hepton getting both goals.

Oakenshaw also went through, defeating Ryburn United 4-2, while West Bowling triumphed late on in a 4-3 verdict over East Leeds Celtic. Dave Halley bagged a hat trick for the Bradford team, with Daryl Leach getting the other goal.

Crossflatts Village just carry on winning and this time it was Harrogate Road who were the victims, with George Clarke bagging a double for the Villagers.

Michael Garnett and James Gill also got on the scoresheet for the home team and Oliver Metcalfe crowned a man of the match performance with a goal.

However, defending champions Sandy Lane bowed out, going down 5-2 to Woodman Sports.

Station Hotel lost 5-1 and bowed out at Fryston, while Toller were beaten 5-4 at home to Selby's Malt Shovel. Westwood Park were at previous winners JB Celtic and lost 5-0.

In the County Trophy, Tyersal looked a beaten side with 15 minutes left as they trailed 2-0.

Yet they mounted a determined fightback against Wibsey, goals from Josh Finan and man of the match Kieran Suddards pulling the Arkwright Street men level – and they held their nerve to win the penalty shoot-out 3-1.

Queensbury beat Aire Athletic 3-2, with substitute Henry Morgan getting the winner in the last minute. Ross Mason hit a double for the home team and Josh Patterson had two assists.

There was restricted league action, with Rob Hutchinson and Jordan Swaine on target for Thornton United Reserves in their 6-2 Championship Division defeat at Bolton Woods Socials.

In the only match played in Division One, Wrose Bull beat Dog & Gun 8-1.

Striker Jordan Horsfall hit four for the winners, including two from outside the area, and Alan Medley bagged a brace, one being a brilliant solo goal after he received the ball in his own half before beating four opponents and the keeper.

Tom Ryszkowski, with a 25-yarder, and Jonny Dearing rounded off the scoring in what was only Wrose Bull's fourth league fixture of the season.
