Oxenhope gave their higher-level opponents a fright after gaining an unexpected home advantage in their Northern Plant Hire Trophy encounger.
With the Premier Division side’s pitch unavailable, the tie was switched to the Slope and Oxenhope made the most of it with an early goal from veteran Shaun Humphreys.
Although he went on to complete a hat-trick and a strike from Sam Coates made it four, it was not enough for the Division Three side to pull off a shock in an 11-goal classic.
