Wharfedale Triangle Premier Division: Ilkley Dynamo 6 Cullingworth 5

CULLINGWORTH were involved in another classic but this time they were on the wrong end of a double-figure scoreline.

Having beaten Burton Leonard 9-7 in the Henry Nicholson Trophy the previous week, they lost to an odd goal in 11 at Ilkley.

Youth felt they were worthy of a point, having controlled the first half and taking the lead through Joel Hardy in the tenth minute.

However, five minutes later Alex Tudhope put through his own net to level the scores.

The visitors hit back to establish a 3-1 half-time lead and, though Dynamo pulled one back in the second half, Cullingworth pulled clear again to lead 4-2.

Ilkley then put their stamp on the game with three quick goals to lead, only for Youth to level again at 5-5.

Dynamo scored the winner in the last five minutes as Lee McGowan and Struan Connor both ended with hat-tricks. Youth had a great chance to level with the last kick but the chance went begging.

Dave Sanderson, man of the match Ben Crispin (2) and new recruit Joshua Atkinson joined Hardy on the scoresheet for the visitors, who were without captain Harry Holmes and Andy Waper in midfield, though manager Allan Feather did not wish to use their absence as an excuse.

Youth host Crossflatts in the Keighley & District FA Sunday Cup this weekend.

Meanwhile, Keighley Athletic are the new leaders of the Premier Division after beating Hampsthwaite 6-3 at home.

Goals from James Bailey, Sean Quinlan, Declan Mclaren, Joe Brady (2) and Callum Wear saw Athletic overtake rivals Keighley Town, who did not have a game.

They are two points clear with a game in hand.
