THE three ties in the Inter-divisional Cup were close affairs, but led to the Division I teams winning in every game.
Waterloo BC, top of Division I, were run the closest and needed a late winner to overcome Walpole Comm.
Walpole took the lead when Paul Henry fired in his second free kick in as many games.
Striker Tom Mitchell equalised soon after, and things then got worse for Walpole when Michael Reynolds put Waterloo 2-1 up.
Phil Bain missed the chance to extend the lead when his penalty was saved by Walpole keeper Paul Wright.
Walpole substitute Darius Matheson got his side back in the game at 2-2, but they couldn’t hold on for the draw as Waterloo’s sub, Andy Salm, headed in the deciding goal.
Despite their lowly position in Division II, Woolpack put up a good fight against First Huddersfield.
First were 3-0 up at half time, but Woolpack manager Dan Martin saw many positives in his side’s attitude as they pulled it back to 2-3 with goals from Chris Lockwood and 17-year-old Andrew Anderson.
First stepped up a gear and scored two quick goals to seemingly end any chances of a Woolpack fightback. The arrears were reduced when Jordan McMillan hammered in a volley to make the final score 3-5.
The two teams that occupy third place in their respective leagues met when Field Head took on Britannia Sports at Royds Hall.
In-form striker Alex Pearson bagged two for Britannia who ran out 2-1 winners.
In the Kirklees Sunday League Challenge Cup first round, Athletico Monkey hosted Town Boys in the day’s only tie.
Monkey who took the lead through Scott Nolan, after his side’s goalkeeper Stuart Andrews had saved Aamer Ghaffer’s penalty.
Monkey were then awarded a penalty but like Town Boys, could not convert – Liam Walton’s kick crashing against the bar. However, the prolific Dean Siddiq made up for Walton’s miss when he made it 2-0 after coming on as a substitute.
Mohammed Iqbal pulled a goal back for Town Boys, but the score remained 2-1.
