Todmorden Borough U15s 6

Sowerby Bridge U15s 0

IT was a slow start for the home side with chances missed.

But after 15 minutes Walker beat the keeper with a finely judged lob.

A pass from Hudson put Gale through for the second.

Then he made another break and caught the visitors out so Borough went into the break three up.

Subs Arthur and Dennett livened up Borough with the latter scoring.

Sowerby had possession but could not finish.

A free kick was converted by Gale and five minutes later it was all over when he got his fourth.

Crossley Juniors Colts U11s 3

Tod Sports U11s 3

TSC were faced with a close well matched battle.

Both teams tried to play a passing game although the visitors did create the best chances they were pegged back by the Colts.

The scoring was opened by Ashton who lobbed the keeper. The second TSC goal was scored by Tansey, who slotted in the rebound after his initial shot was saved.

Substitute Roberts again impressed with the third.

Both sides had chances to lead but the post, bar, bad misses and great saves kept them level.

Greetland Stars U10s 0

Todmorden Sports Centre U10s 5

A five-goal first half blitz from Tod proved more than enough.

Caldwell latched on to Ormerod’s cross to steer home the opening goal.

Next it was England’s pass that put Caldwell in for the second and he completed his hat-trick after pouncing on to a loose ball.

Deakin started another incisive attack and finished it to extend the lead and then made 5 - 0.

Greetland played better after the break, but Tod still caused them problems and Rothwell hit the bar.

Boothtown U10s 1

Todmorden Sports Centre U10s 2

IN a gritty encounter, Tod deserved this hard-fought victory.

They were unsettled and intimidated at the start and soon found themselves a goal down.

Kicking off the second period, Tod had a greater emphasis on attack and it paid dividends.

Tod finally equalised when a powerful punt from Diggle went to England to score.

Tod laid siege to the Boothtown goal. A succession of shots were either stopped on, or cleared off the line.

Eventually they got the breakthrough, when Cook found England who steered the ball home.

Halifax Irish U7s 0

TSC Tigers U7s 8

The Tigers extended their unbeaten run at the top.

Fenner, Hughes, Jeffries and Korah McGeoch battled all match tackling well and supplying passes to goal scorers, Ashley Thomas, Ciaran Bourne, Lenny Sorrell and Thomas England.

Noah Priestly sealed the win with a final fantastic four-goal flurry. Korah was named man of the match.
