Big home win keeps Wath Brow Hornets buzzing
Last updated at 11:50, Monday, 13 August 2012
Wath Brow Hornets maintained their push for National Conference Premier League honours with a 46-20 home win over Saddleworth Rangers.
But it took a forceful second-half show from the Hornets to complete the comprehensive victory as they only led 18-14 at the break.
With only three minutes of the first half remaining a clever long kick from Leroy Joe from his own 20 was chased down by teenage winger Scott Pink.
Hotly pursued by several Saddleworth players the youngster won the foot race chipping it over the white wash before touching down. Fran King converted.
Then former Seaton star Callum Phillips, brother of Workington Town forward Brett Phillips, got over for another try which King improved to put Hornets ahead again.
The second half started with both teams battering away at each other’s defences.
On 61 minutes King extended the Hornets lead with his second try and he also added the extras.
In the last 15 minutes they ran in four tries to pull clear of their spirited opponents.
Jason Connery (2), Ryan Amor and Greg Dawson all crossed the Saddleworth line, with King converting three of them.
- Egremont and Castleford Lock Lane put on a mistake-laden pulsating encounter at the home of Rangers’ Rugby Union neighbours Bleach Green.
In the end a scrappy contest finished in Egremont’s favour 42-32 after the two sides had turned round all square at 18-18.
Brocklebank gave Egremont the lead with a show and go before adding the conversion.
Then on the stroke of half time an awful looping pass was intercepted by Lock Lane winger Garlick who went fully 90 metres to score and the conversion sent the teams into the break all square.
On 50 minutes Leak made a 40 yard break which culminated in a Matt Bewsher try which Brocklebank improved.
On 61 minutes Telford produced a splendid inside ball forPalmer to go over and Brocklebank’s conversion made it 36-24.
Then on 64 minutes came the game-breaker with a Brocklebank break. He also added the conversion.
The Rangers youngsters are now joint second in the League with Bradford Dudley Hill who are next week’s opponents at Bleach Green.
