CORPUS Christi moved into Friday’s final of the YEN Cup after making light work of Seacroft Reserves who were defeated 4-0 in Saturday’s semi-final, writes LOUIS STOKES.

Wayne Woods was at the double while Glen and Kristan Roberts both added strikes.

The final will take place between Corpus Christi and top of the table Halton Moor on Friday evening at 7.30pm at Garforth Town’s ground.

The other cup competition in the Leeds Red Triangle division is the Rowland Road WMC Senior Cup in which both Bramley Villagers and Halton Moor progressed to the next round following away wins.

Bramley Villagers defeated Hunslet Club and Parkside 3-1. Matthew Jackson picked up a brace, with Dean Wood scoring an own goal. John Hill scored Hunslet’s goals.

Top of the table Halton Moor could pick up four trophies this season having already lifted the Metcalfe cup and remained on course for this amazing feat with a comfortable 5-2 win at Drighlington. Eric Seed scored twice while Steven Richardson, Tim Waldock and Stephen Copley were also on the scoresheet.

Shane Sowden and Antony Thompson scored in vain for Drighligton.

Bramley Villagers will host Seacroft Reserves in their Senior Cup semi-final next; it is fourth versus sixth in the table.

In the league, South Leeds Independent remain bottom of the table after their 12th defeat of the season as home side Seacroft Green picked up a 4-1 win.

Stuart Tetley hit a double, Ben Commons and Paul Driffield also notched for Seacroft, Kyle Bell scored the consolation for Independent.

Next weekend’s league action sees fifth-placed side Drighlington Malt Shovel host Seacroft Green who will be looking to build on this weekend’s success over south Leeds Independent. Seacroft Green will take Drighlington’s place in fifth with a win.

Halton Moor and Corpus Christi are the two main protagonists for the league title, having both lost only one game this season. Friday’s cup final between the two sides could be a great indicator if who has the credentials to take the main league prize.

Halton have the upper hand having lifted the first piece of silverware this season and could be on for an unprecedented four trophies in a season.
