INTER Athletic and Wellington A are through to the fourth round of the West Riding County FA Sunday Trophy.
Inter won 3-1 at Overthorpe while Welly had a 2-1 success at Bramham.
Inter progressed after a hard fought win at Overthorpe, which included many twists and turns.
The Get Smart Group Kirklees Sunday League team started the brighter, getting to grips with the blustery conditions.
They got the ball down and created a chance in the first few minutes when John Conheeney was put through and slotted home, only to be ruled offside.
The away side carried on dominating with Kieran Ryan going close and, on 15 minutes, Inter got the breakthrough when ConheeneyŠ played a superb ball through the Overthorpe defence and Dean Wharam calmly finished.
The Inter goal seemed to instil some urgency into Overthorpe, who then started to come into the game and, on 25 minutes, were awarded a penalty for a handball. This was tucked away to make it 1-1.
Shortly after, Inter were reduced to 10 men after the harsh sending-off of midfielder Warren Brook, and Inter had to show some real grit and determination to get toŠ half time all square.
After the break Overthorpe started brightly, but again Inter came back at them and Kieran Moore saw his effort rattle the Overthorpe bar.
The home side pressed but solid defendingŠ meant they wereŠ reduced to long-range efforts that were easily gathered by Leon Stephenson.Š
The gameŠ was on a knife edge when Conheeney capitalised on a mistake from the Overthorpe keeper and madeŠ it 2-1 to Inter with 15 minutes to go.Š
Again Overthorpe rallied but could not find a way past the resoluteŠInter defence and, with five minutes remaining, Wharam broke away and bagged a second to send his side through.
Wellington had to endure a tight first half against Bramham and, with very few chances created in windy conditions, it was 0-0 at the break.
With the wind at their backs in the second half, Wellington took control of the game and their first goal game from a free-kick by Matty Waller, which was floated in and misjudged by the Bramham keeper.
Bramham played on the break most of the second half and were rewarded with an equaliser to make it 1-1.
The game was then nip and tuck, with Daniel Waddington pulling off a couple of good saves.
Waller was unplayable and was constantly being fouled, which led to a free-kick about 30 yards out. When the ball was delivered into the box byŠDoran Jordan it finished in the top corner of the net.
Wellington kept the ballŠ well after that and booked their place in the fourth round.
In Division I, Black Bull consolidated second spot after a 2-0 win over Dalton.
Gill and Chard were on target for Bull.
Jamie Hartley missed a penalty for Dalton which would have got them back into the game before half time.
In the second half Dalton piled on the pressure but, due to an excellent performance from the Black Bull keeper and poor finishing, just couldn’t get onto the scoresheet.
In Division II, leaders Queen had a 3-1 win over Club Kirkheaton.
Carmichael scored for Kirkheaton.
Second-placed Town Rangers fought out an entertaining 6-6 draw with Field Head at Royds Hall.
Scorers for Rangers were Richard Boustead (2), Clayton, Kieran Kavanagh (2) and Hawkyard
Wellington “B” opened up a seven-point lead over basement side Escorpians, after beating them 3-2.
Afsar, an own goal and Shooter accounted for Welly’s tally. It was 2-2 until Welly struck a late winner.
