OLYMPIC have finally joined fellow GOALS Bradford Sunday Alliance League club Crossflatts Village in the semi-finals of the West Riding County FA Sunday Cup.

The Premier Division leaders, who have been playing catch-up, defeated Halifax visitors Lee Mount 8-2 in a delayed quarter-final.

The Halifax team started the stronger, showing what a good side they were going forward, and only a last-ditch tackle from Ryan Metcalf stopped the visitors from going in front.

The Bradford team then took the lead with a crisp 25-yard free-kick from Steve Hollingworth and doubled the lead with a bullet header from Sam Bradley from a corner.

Hollingworth got his second of the match after some good build-up play, but, as in the first half, Lee Mount started the second half stronger and pulled a goal back with a 40-yard lob.

Hollingworth then hit a piledriver to complete his hat-trick, but that wasn't the best goal of the match as excellent Olympic build-up play resulted in Temour Khan firing the ball into the top corner from 20 yards.

Omar Habib then lobbed the opposition keeper before the visitors hit their second goal from the penalty spot in the closing stages.

The semi-finals will be played next month at West Riding County FA HQ at Woodlesford, and the Alliance teams are in separate halves of the draw.

Olympic remain top of the Premier Division, despite having only played one league match this year, but Sandy Lane, currently leading the chasers, had a 6-2 victory over struggling Ventus United.

Christopher bagged a brace for Sandy, with further goals coming from Matthew Cavanagh, Daniel Hook, Lucas Mackenzie and Lee Smith.

In the Championship Division, runaway leaders Station Hotel had a 6-0 victory over Bolton Woods Social.

Crossflatts Village, 13 points behind with four games in hand, kept their promotion hopes alive with a battling win against a well-organised Westwood Park at Crossflatts Recreation Ground.

The bobbly pitch proved a leveller in the first half as both sides struggled to retain possession.

Village's assistant manager Les Cooper asked for more composure from his players at half-time, and they responded by taking control.

Colin Schofield opened the scoring for Flatts after 65 minutes, poking home Craig Morris' left-wing cross from two yards out after coming in from the opposite flank.

Connor Erangey was brought on for his Village debut to replace James Gill with ten minutes to go and had an Westwood were pressing for an equaliser and had a very strong penalty appeal turned down in the 88th minute.

However, Village counter-attacked excellently.

Lewis Morgan played the ball out to Michael Garnett, who held the ball up and then played it through to Erangey, who ran into the box and fired the ball home to make it 2-0, with Park still appealing for the penalty in the Flatts half.

The away side were then awarded a penalty when Village right back George Clark was adjudged to have handled, and the spot-kick was by dispatched by Danny Farrar with a minimum of fuss.

The referee then blew his whistle immediately after the restart.

The Morgan brothers, Lewis and Matthew, were outstanding at the heart of Village's defence.

Prospect and Toller had a thriller at Bradford University, with hosts Prospect winning 5-4.

Joe Keen and substitute Daniel Williamson had braces for the home side, with Kamran Khan bagging a double for the losers.

Tyersal remain in pole position in Division One after a late goal from Adam Jarrett earned the Arkwright Street men a 1-0 victory.

Ryan Naylor hit four goals for Steel Bangle Spartans but it was far from enough because visitors Wibsey hit ten, with Devan Warner getting a hat-trick and Jonny Brannan and Ryan Wood braces.

In Division Two, Delius beat leaders AFC Titans 2-1 to help remove them from the top of the table.

Strikes by Sean Gallagher and Daniel Le-Prevost was too much for the visitors, who replied through Mick Douglas. Danny O'Donnell hit a hat-trick for Northern, who kept up their title challenge with a 5-1 defeat of visitors Eccleshill Punjab.

But Fairweather Green are the new leaders after hitting double figures at George United, with Brendan Maltby bagging a treble and Danny Davey and Ryan Mahoney hitting doubles.

Elliot Holmes hit two goals in the last two minutes to give Eastward a share of the points against AFC Wibsey Reserves in a 4-4 draw.

Strikes by Callum Brewster and John Selby had kept East Ward in touch, while Matthew Artist (3) and Jacob Thompson had given Wibsey an early lead.
