BADRI MADE no mistake in sealing the Leeds Sunday League Championship crown with a final day 7-0 cruise at third-placed Corpus Christi.

Leaders Badri knew a draw would leave them vulnerable to second-placed Seacroft AFC but the title was sealed in style through braces from Ryan Mills and Jack Humphries plus a goal each from Damon Turpin, Andy Brewitt and Jamie McMahon.

Seacroft did their by hammering sixth-placed visitors East Leeds Celtic 9-3 through four-goals from Keiran Goodison plus a brace from Ricky Watson and a goal each from Renal Edwards, Martin Shaw and Nathaniel Welsh. Adam Wood, Kendal Hardisty and Stephen Johnson struck for Celtic.

East End Park WMC sealed a second-placed finish in the Terry Pears Premier with a 6-4 success at second-bottom Halfway House (Stanningley).

Torpedo will take on Halfway House Bramley in Sunday’s final at Whitkirk Wanderers FC with a 2.30pm kick-off, a game preceding the Leeds Sunday Alliance Challenge Cup final between Gascoigne and Seacroft Colts Stallions which starts at 11am at the same ground.

And sixth-placed finishers Torpedo approach their season finale in rude health after Sunday’s battering of the division’s bottom side, led by a hat trick from Luke Harrop.
