EMILY HECKLER netted eight goals as Town Ladies powered into the quarter-finals of the West Riding County Cup.

Her haul helped Town chalk an impressive 13-0 victory at Farsley AFC, even though they were only 3-0 up at the break.

Faye Chadwick opened the scoring on seven minutes with a bullet header from a Kate Mallin corner.

Heckler (left) made it two on 21 minutes but, from there, Town were frustrated for most of the half by a combination of poor finishing and some excellent saves from the Farsley keeper Sonia Penney.

Just before half time the constant pressure paid off and, following a foul just outside the Farsley area, Heckler calmly curled the free kick into the top corner.

The second half was easier for Town as their superior fitness started to tell.

Heckler scored her third two minutes into the half and then her fourth and fifth goals before the hour.

Mallin got on the scoresheet on 62 minutes to make the score 7-0 before Heckler scored two further goals in the 65th and 72nd minutes.

New signing Rachael Wood sent in a nice cross from the left on 77 minutes and, due to pressure from Heckler, a Farsley defender could only head the ball past her own keeper.

Three goals in the last 10 minutes from Sofie Armitage, Heckler and Hollie Barker made the final score 13-0.

In the quarter-finals Town are on the road again at Guiseley Ladies.

This coming Sunday, the first team return to league action at home (Warrenside) to high-flying South Durham & Cestria (2pm).

The Reserves’ Cup game against Wakefield Reserves was once again postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Grange Moor. They will try again on Sunday (1pm).

Town Ladies Under 18s beat Dronfield Town 1-0 to earn a place in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

Chances were few and far between, but Town stepped things up in the second half and eventually made the breakthrough on 72 minutes.

A poor clearance from the Dronfield defence was seized on by Alice Linsell and she fired home from 20 yards.

Town had a scare in the final minute when Dronfield broke, and Seana Potts had to make an excellent save.

Player of the match was Georgia Hamilton for her committed performance in midfield.

On Saturday the Under 18s are at home (Grange Moor) to Millmoor Juniors (10.30).

Town Under 15s travel to Middlewood Rovers this Saturday (11am), having had their game washed out last weekend.

Town’s Under 13s stayed top of Division I with a crushing 9-1 win at Dronfield.

Ella Harris put them ahead after only two minutes and netted her second two minutes later when turning home a Tara Duce corner.

On 18 minutes Duce scored with a direct free kick from distance and, two minutes later, produced another excellent corner which captain Laura Walker volleyed home.

Duce scored again with another long-range effort on 25 minutes and then first-half substitute Olivia Bennett netted twice to make the half-time score 7-0.

In the second half Dronfield played with more determination and, with the aid of the slope, caused Town more and more problems.

They got their just reward seven minutes into the half when a powerful shot could not be kept out by Town keeper Isobel Pare.

Harris completed her hat trick with 15 minutes remaining and Amy Broomhead finished the scoring five minutes later.

On Saturday, the Under 13s travel to second-placed Doncaster Rovers Belles (11am).
