andy vernon slammed a Sunday morning four-timer as Waterintobeer downed visiting Sporting Pudsey 9-5 in a Leeds Combination League Luty Cup cracker.

Eight games from the Combination leagues survived the weekend’s deluges with Vernon the hero of Waterintobeer’s second round triumph.



His four-timer was supported by strikes from Steve Kaye, Darren Hark, Jan Konupekm, James Jones and an own goal with another OG plus efforts from Nathan Jones, Josh Pearce, Omar Caines and Stephen Kelsey failing to save the visitors.

The home side’s Nat Welsh and Craig McDonagh bagged doubles to go with strikes from Liam Gales, Martin Shaw and James Stevenson in the face of a Travellers consolation from Danny Hurley.

Bramley Town also jumped above visiting Sporting Pudsey into sixth with a 7-0 home victory. Marc Wilson’s double was supported by a goal each from Mitch Dixon, Scott Barlow, Kris Robson, Brian Edwards and Richard Manning.

There were fewergoals in the two fixtures that survived in Division One with hosts New Pudsey held to a 2-2 draw by fellow high-flying visitors Leodis United. John Sykes and Ricardo Brown netted for third-placed Leodis to bag them a point though a draw was still enough to take New Pudsey top by a point. However, second-placed Swillington Welfare now have two games in hand.

Original Oak also moved off the foot of the division as a 3-0 victory at home to third-bottom KKS Zubry gave them their first league win of the season.

One game survived in the Premier Division with Badri up to sixth after obliging 2-1 at bottom club Hare & Hounds.

In Division Three, Northern Star shone 6-4 at basement rivals AFC Elford who stay bottom of the pile..

Liam Townsend hit a treble for the fourth-bottom visitors with doubles from Humayun Ahmed and Barba Rohman not enough for Elford.

Second-placed Moortown Albion closed the gap on leaders FC Horsforth Saints by walloping third-bottom visitors Temple 11-0.

Moortown are now three points behind leaders FC Horsforth Saints with two games in hand with third-placed Barwick Stallions having a further game in hand but being another four points adrift.

Weather permitting, one of the games of the season could take place this weekend with Danny Walsh’s title hopefuls Halton Moro at home to Hope Inn Whites in the Jubilee Premier. Hope Inn have won every game in every competition so far this season.
