GOLCAR UNITED, the last Huddersfield team to win the West Riding County FA Challenge Cup in 2001, went through to this year's last 16 with a 2-1 victory over West Yorkshire League side Kellingley Welfare at Longfield Avenue.
And with fellow Premier Division sides Bay Athletic and Storthes Hall (cup winners in 1998, 99 and 2000) also winning, it was a productive weekend for Huddersfield's leading triumvirate.
There was only disppointment for high-flying District League Division II outfit Britannia Sports who lost 3-2 at home to Eastmoor.
There were lively, early exchanges at Golcar with both sides trying to gain the advantage.
Kellingley had the better chances and on 20 minutes they broke down the left and a well-weighted pass put Calvin Waites through on goal and, just as he was poised to shoot, a tremendous tackle by Craig Ruscoe took the ball away for a corner.
A series of corners followed but the visitors were unable to find a way through a stubborn United defence led by Leigh Holmes and Matty Day's great display of brave goalkeeping.
As the half progressed United started to gain a hold on the game, as their superior quality began to pay off.
Golcar won a corner in the last minute of the first half and Steve Rushworth's superb delivery was met by Holmes who powered a firm header into the top corner to give the home side a half-time lead.
Kellingley were fast out of the blocks after the restart but United were not about to let their slender lead slip and they weathered the initial storm before playing themselves back in control.
On 60 minutes Paul Cartwright crossed to Andrew Allison whose effort went inches wide but two minutes later a quality move and finish saw United extend their lead.
A through ball on the half-way line saw Allison break down the right, he beat the defender before firing in a low cross, Cartwright niftily stepped over the ball and Andrew Biggs, running in from the left, fired an unstoppable shot beyond the Kellingley keeper.
United continued to press with Nathan Trew and Cartwright both going close.
But Kellingley pulled a goal back on 85 minutes when Waites found space on the edge of the penalty area and he produced a super shot which went in off a post to beat keeper Day.
United's second string, riding high in second place in the West Riding County amateur League Reserve Division, failed to go through to the fourth round of the West Riding Trophy, losing 3-2 away at Keighley outfit Oxenhope FC.
A good performance from Bay saw them make the last 16 in the cup with a 3-0 victory against Pool.
Bay 'won' the cup last year after a 1-0 victory against Sherburn White Rose, but were forced to hand it back after fielding an ineligible player.
Winger Adam McLachlan fired Bay ahead on 25 minutes with a low, driving shot into the bottom corner from 18 yards.
Irrepressible John Buckley made it 2-0 on 35 minutes, heading in from eight yards after Steve Perrin's corner was deflected into his path by Andy Salm.
Bay continued to press and on 65 minutes Paul Pyke beat three men and the keeper to deny any chance of a Pool revival.
On a difficult, heavy, surface at Spa Athletic, Storthes Hall completely dominated the first half, but a string of missed chances meant they turned around level after a goalless first half.
On two minutes an inch perfect cross from Michael Tunnacliffe found Matt Poulain in space at the far post but he shot too near to the keeper and George Medd saved with his legs.
Medd then brilliantly tipped around a 20-yard shot from Tom Fleming and, from the corner, Chris Margis beat the keeper only to see his shot hacked off the line.
Matt Mulvihill had a chance to fire Hall into the lead when, after beating his marker to home in on goal, he fired wide.
On 33 minutes a great through ball from Tunnacliffe sent Poulain away but with only keeper Medd to beat, he too shot wide.
The blustery conditions were to Spa's advantage in the second half but with the Hall defence in mean mood, they were restricted to long-range efforts.
Poulain reacted first to Chris Drew's flick-on but saw his effort blocked on the line before Fleming, once again, tested the keeper with a shot from outside the area which Medd got his hands on to turn around a post.
But Hall finally broke the deadlock on 66 minutes after good work by Dion Smith who cut in from the left and his driven cross was fired in by Mulvihill from eight yards.
Apart from a corner which flashed across the face of goal and a couple of long-range shots, Hall stopper Liam Garside was well protected.
