Pontefract Collieries caused a big upset in the West Riding County Cup as they won 5-1 at Vanarama National League North side Harrogate Town on Monday night.
The 3G surface at Wetherby Road meant that the game could go ahead when almost all of the rest of the midweek fixtures were called off due to snow or unfit pitches due to the recent cold snap.
And, the Colls began the Quarter-Final tie in red hot fashion as Jamie Williams' opener and a Mark Whitehouse brace saw them 3-0 up within the opening quarter-of-an-hour.
The home side pulled one back before the interval but Eli Hey struck twice in the second half, including one from the penalty spot, to send the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division highfliers through to the last four.
The only other game to survive the bad weather was Rainworth Miners Welfare
's trip to Evo-Stik League Division One outfit Carlton Town on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, they were not able to provide an upset as early goals in both halves saw them bow out of the Notts Senior Cup at the Third Round stage with a 2-0 defeat.
The five matches that were postponed in midweek were the league trips for Worksop Town
to Bridlington Town
and Grimsby Borough
to Worsbrough Bridge Athletic
whilst the League Cup clash between Athersley Recreation
and Eccleshill United
also fell foul of the weather as did Swallownest
's Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup tie with Swinton Athletic.
