Farsley AFC continued their playoff push with a 4-0 win at home against local rivals Ossett Albion.
Ossett had the first chance of the game when Ross Hardaker crossed for ex-Farsley player Adam Muller who shot just over the bar. Farsley almost scored minutes later when academy graduate Kyle Hancock’s free kick was headed inches wide by Aiden Savory. Hancock had the chance to score himself just minutes later when his shot was comfortably saved by Brett Souter, after being teed up by Robbie O’Brien. Farsley took the lead just before the half hour mark when Lewis Trice headed into his own net at the back post, following a Lewis Nightingale corner. Darol Lucas had Ossett’s best chance of the game when his shot from the edge of the area went for a corner following a fingertip save from Tom Taylor.
Midway through the second half Farsley scored twice in two minutes, the first being a superb curling effort from Savory before Nightingale slipped in O’Brien who finished in to the far corner. Luke Porritt had a chance to make it 4-0 when he fired just wide from the edge of the box. Farsley did go 4-0 up however, when Ossett scored a comical own goal. Ossett player-chairman headed the ball over his own onrushing keeper Souter from edge of the box, to round off a good day at the office for Farsley.
