TOWN Ladies came off second best in the weekend soccer matches.
The first team had a tough game against Leeds City Vixens in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup, going down 3-0 after a controversial opener.
Midway through the first period Vixens took a long throw which appeared to go straight in without a touch from anyone which gifted the home side a 1-0 half-time lead.
Vixens continued to force the pace after the break as Town conceded two further goals. Leanne Entwhisle was Town's player of the match.
They now entertain Bradford City at Beck Lane on Sunday (2.00).
The Reserves entertained Westend in a local derby, and although Alex Blackburn gave a commanding display at centre-back for Town, Westend came out the stronger with a 2-0 victory.
The Under 16s were badly hit by injuries but fought bravely against White Rose who went in front on the stroke of half time.
Town dominated the second half, but a combination of bad luck and poor finishing let them down.
The Under 14s were well beaten by White Rose at Castleford, where the home side netted seven times.
Huddersfield put in a lot of effort and were rewarded with two goals from Ana Mesaravic and Laura Mather.
The girls are at home to Sheffield Utd on Saturday (10.30), all home games being played at Grange Moor.
* Kirklees Ladies also lost in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup against South Durham Royals.
Despite being two leagues below Durham, Kirklees were never outplayed and only went down to a solitary strike.
They return to League action on Sunday against Wakefield.
