YMCA Under 11s proved too strong for Upperthong and moved into the fourth round of the RCD League Cup.

YMCA Under 11s proved too strong for Upperthong and moved into the fourth round of the RCD League Cup.

Upperthong play a division lower than YM and found the going tough at times, even though they were at home at Sands Rec.

The home side were unable to find the net as Alfie MacDonald (2) and Sam Jennings scored to give YMCA a 3-0 victory and a place in the quarter-finals, where they will meet BPA Juniors next week.

One round further on, Clifton Rangers booked their semi-final place with a derby victory over neighbours Rastrick.

Clifton have struggled to find form in the top division of the Under 12s this season, but their cup run includes a fine victory over title-chasing Westend.

And their latest 6-1 win over Second Division Rastrick was thanks to goals from Lewis Crabtree, Harrison Glew, Owen Murthy and a William Peterkin hat trick.

3D Dynamos got the better of Northowram in an 11-goal thriller in the third round of the Under 14 cup.

Thomas Pow (2), James Morris (2) and Ellis Nichol scored for First Division Northowram but a hat trick for Jack Churchill, two for Sam Bagshaw and one from Ben Ford were just enough to secure a 6-5 victory for Second division 3D Dynamos, who go on the meet Halifax Irish.

In the same round and age group, Batley suffered defeat at HAFC.

The relegation-threatened Second Division side have enjoyed a good cup run but they were unable to repeat the victories of previous rounds as Ben Keegan (2), George Cockroft (2) and Niall Porter ran in a 5-0 victory for HAFC, who now face fellow top-flight side Almondbury Lions.

In the Under 15s, Hepworth United’s hopes of cup glory ended at the hands of fellow First Division side Hartshead.

George White, Brandon Hemmingway, Luke McCarron and Cassidy scored to give Hartshead a 4-2 win to set up a fourth-round home game against a Battyeford side whose cup form belies that of a struggling Second Division side.

First Division Dalton Dynamoes edged a narrow win over HAFC to book their place in the fourth round of the Under 18 cup.

HAFC, currently leading the Second Division title race, were never going to be pushovers for title-chasing Dalton, who edged the game with the only goal through Aiden Donahue. They meet Rastrick at the next stage.
