A patchy performance from Wetherby, that matched the changing weather, saw them race into a 2-0 lead, but lose out 5-2 in the end.
The match got off to a flyer for The Tangerines when debutant Daniel Brooks latched onto Jon Maloney's through balls to give the hosts a 2-0 lead after 3 minutes.
Some hesitation in Wetherby's defence allowed Hunslet to pull one back in the 9th minute and by the 15th, it was all square!
Both teams had periods of good play, but some determined keeping by Hunslet's Jordan Myers kept Wetherby at bay.
With the half closing, Wetherby had notched up a couple more chances, but couldn't convert.
The second half saw Wetherby pressure Hunslet's goal, but it was the visitor's who broke away and scored.
It was plainly not going to be our day when substitute Teydairvine Machama beat Myers but his back header slammed against the bar and Maloney slipped as he went for the follow up. Finally Andy Graham's shot is blocked on route to goal!
