West Leeds 25-48 Bees

Second half performance sees Bees through.

29 unaswered points in the final 25 minutes of this First Round Yorkshire Cup Tie saw Bradford and Bingley through to meet Ilkley in the next round. During that final 25 minutes the Bees were dominating all phases of the game and had a game West Leeds side back pedalling across all areas of the pitch. Tom Cummins, Alex Keeton, Ante Majic and Tom Booth were a constant threat with ball in hand in the pack and the visiting backline looked capable of running in a score at any time especially when the ball reached Gene Te Amo in the centre. The Bees new signing from the Cook Islands looks a tremendous find and will surely collect several more scores to go with the two he picked up in this contest.when the Bees return to league action

The home side opened the brighter and deserved their 11 point lead after the first ten minutes. Something was not quite clicking in the Bees ranks and Campbell Breakwell helped himself to a try, a conversion and a penalty in the opening exchanges before the visitors had settled into their game. After 13 minutes Cameron Bainbridge rectified that situation somewhat as he powered down the right wing to score. Lance Taylor added the extras. The home side were next on the scoresheet as Sam Neave collected a five pointer with Breakwell improving the score to 17 - 7 with 22 minutes played. The Bees replied immediately with Max Mountain showing a turn of speed and some power in contact with the final defender, to burst through to the right of the sticks. With just less than 10 minutes to go before the interval Breakwell added another penalty to stretch the lead back to 20 points to 12.

The Bees shunned a couple of opportunities to kick at goal which could have narrowed the gap, but the side obviously believes they are more likely to get points in open play, even when the game is tight. The Bees did nt get any further points during this period and the sides turned round separated by eight points.

It didnt take long for the Bees to pull the game back to a single point margin as Keeton barged his way to the line with three minutes played in the second half. Taylor obliging with the extras. The home side did not waste any time in extending their lead back to six as Eliah Chitiyo galloped home with 47 minutes played.

The Bees were gradually taking the game by the scruff of the neck in the tight exchanges and were also starting to run through their repertoire of backs moves. Tom Johnson pulling the strings at stand off, but players right across the backline looking to get involved. Taylor was the man to benefit as the Bees engineered a gap in the West Leeds defence and the Bees full back motored through the gap to score with 54 minutes played. The missed conversion left the score at 25-24 to the home side and it was still all to play for. The Bees were beginning to get Te Amo more involved and his strength near the line brought its reward as he powered over on 62 minutes. Taylor added the conversion and slotted a penalty and the visitors were now 9 points to the good with around 14 minutes to play.

The visitors were now firmly entrenched in West Leeds territory and it was no suprise when Majic broke free to claim another 5 pointer. Taylor's conversion too the Bees past 40 points, but the Wagon Lane side were not about to ease off and as the clock ticked into time added on Te Amo broke free out wide on the right and no-one was going to stop him plunging over in the corner. Taylor saved his best kick of the day for the conversion from out wide to the right and the Bees can now look forward to a trip to Ilkley on November 10th for Round Two.
