MATTHEW Keenan's Station Hotel side confirmed their status as one of the favourites for the Bradford Sunday Alliance League Premier Division title with a thumping win at defending champions Crossflatts Village.

The result made it three wins out of three games and put them two points clear at the top of the table.

The away side opened the scoring after 11 minutes thanks to Daniel Cunningham's free kick.

Adam Simpson levelled matters a few minutes later but Dominic Staunton gave his side the lead again before half-time.

Station then sealed the points in the second half with goals from substitute Josh Milner and Andrew Benjamin.

Village manager Steve Lewis wasn't best pleased with his side's attitude and said he wants to see a reaction at Bolton Woods on Sunday.

A disgruntled Lewis said: "We weren't good enough. It's as simple as that.

"In this league, there's lots of big games and the top teams will take points off each other, but it often comes down to who wants it the most.

"Today Station wanted it more than us and they more than deserved their victory.

"I will be looking for an improved performance on Sunday when we travel to Bolton Woods."

West Bowling have six points, like Crossflatts, but have only played twice.

They kept up their 100 per cent record with a narrow 2-1 home win over Olympic.

It was a quiet first half, but six minutes after the break, Bowling took the lead.

A long clearance by keeper Ash Onitiri found Joe Jagger down the line and his pinpoint cross found Karl Fawcett in the box.

He rounded a defender and hammered the ball home to make it 1-0.

Bowling doubled their score just two minutes later. This time it was Fawcett, with an exquisite rabona pass, who fed the ball to Jagger. He slotted his shot past the keeper to make it 2-0.

With Olympic pressing forward, Onitiri had to make a smart save, but the visitors were getting caught on the break as a result, and Bowling were unlucky not to increase their lead.

Steve Hollingworth headed in a consolation goal but Bowling's defence stood firm to ensure all three points.

Wrose Bull went second, defeating poor Bradford Moor YSA, who were playing their first game of the season, 11-0.

Andy Howland netted four for Bull, while Declan Dunne helped himself to a hat-trick.

Westwood Park have made a bright start, with two wins from two. They beat Oakenshaw 3-1 thanks to an Ian Gilmour brace.

Bolton Woods and Tyersal both got their first wins of the season, beating AFC Wibsey and Sandy Lane 5-0 and 2-1 respectively.

In the Championship, East Bierley Village grabbed a surprise 2-1 win at previous leaders Bankfoot.

That opened the door for Low Moor, who went top with a 4-1 win over Heaton Athletic.

Danyal Yasin struck a hat-trick to help Thornbury Celtic beat FC Dog & Gun 7-1, while Darren Fothergill also hit three, as his Peacock Bar side won 6-2 at FC Queensbury.

Elsewhere, Keighley Town did very well to win 3-2 at previously undefeated Throstle Nest United.

In Division One, RISlondon stayed top with a 6-1 victory at Rattlers, while Liam Roper's treble helped high-flying Newline win 6-2 at Woodlands.

Thornton United and Parry Lane both won 2-1, against Clayton Albion and Prospect Reserves respectively, to maintain their good starts, while Beldon Oddies beat Windhill Ajax 3-2.

Bolton Woods Socials lead the way in Division Two after crushing Esholt 6-2, while Thackley Juniors 2003 Athletic and Lincoln Barbers both won narrowly to maintain their 100 per cent records too.

Beldon Oddies Reserves are hot on the heels of the trio though, after they thumped Clayton Athletic 9-2.

Elsewhere, Buttershaw St Paul's got their first win, beating Delius 2-1.

Finally, in Division Three, Northern stay top after beating Low Moor Reserves 2-1, while the stand out result in the division saw Shipley All Stars win 5-1 at home to Esholt Reserves.
