Golcar United crashed out of the West Riding County Cup after a 4-2 defeat away to Wakefield AFC.
The hosts took the lead after just four minutes when Jaydan Sandhu spotted Golcar keeper Harry Stead off his line and volleyed over him from all of 25 yards.
Just after a quarter of an hour had passed, the hosts doubled their advantage through a lovely passing play which was finished by Cameron Barnett from the edge of the box which left Stead with no chance.
Golcar struggled to create many chances of real quality in the first half, the biggest one coming in the 43rd minute, where George Doyle had two efforts saved in quick succession.

Into the second half, it took just 50 seconds for Dan Naidole to give Golcar a lifeline and bring them back into the game, his right-footed shot took a deflection leaving the Wakefield keeper stranded.
With just over 20 minutes to go, Wakefield restored their two-goal cushion as Mason Rubie made it 3-1.
With the game slipping away, defender Kiero Lawrence was thrown up front and with less than 15 minutes to go, Kai Phillip reduced the deficit with a left-footed shot into the roof of the net.
Any hopes of a comeback were gone two minutes from time when Jake Morrison made it 4-2.
Golcar return to league action on Saturday December 23 when they travel to Rossington Main.
