Favourites Wellington Westgate A lifted the KSL Get Smart Group Challenge Trophy for the second time, beating Dalton 2-0 at Emley.
Wellington, who were made to work hard for their victory, are already proud winners of the West Riding County FA Sunday Trophy, chasing the League title and will be aiming to retain the Huddersfield and District FA Challenge Cup, when they play Heavy Woollen outfit Towngate at Warrenside tomorrow (11am) in a repeat of last year’s final.
In the first half Eddie Hamlet and Graham McLachlan had several chances for Wellington, when well placed, which were either directed straight at Dalton keeper Nat Kelly or blazed high and wide.
It was Lee Bradshaw who gave them the lead just before half time and it wasn’t until 85 minutes that sub Adam Walsh, who had been sent on with Jamie Jobarteh to brighten things up, notched the second and settled the final.
Dalton had a few opportunities, particularly in the second half, with probably one of the best falling to Ryan Haigh – who shot just over the bar from 25 yards.
Wellington’s midfielder Anthony Haigh, whose distribution throughout was exceptional, was voted man of the match.
Inter Athletic won the KSL Lockwood Private Hire Trophy at Lepton Highlanders, where they beat plucky Almondbury Woolpack 5-3 after extra time.
Woolpack came back from 3-1 down to draw level at 3-3 in 90 minutes, taking advantage of a strong wind in their backs to level the scores with goals from Ryan Kennedy, Stephen Brook and James Acquah.
However, Inter also made the most of the wind in extra time to score two quick goals and earn them victory through Sam Buck – who netted from near the half way line – and Josh Smith.
Kieran Ryan (2) and Tom Brennan – the industrious defender who was man of the match – got the other goals for Inter.
In Division I, Walkers Hounds defeated Field Head 2-0 at Golcar, where Nicholas Shaw and Sam Ansell scored for Walkers.
