Ford scored four tries, including a 14-minute first half hat trick, as Oldham won a tense clash 36-32 at The Gnoll.
Ford records the maximum five points towards his competition’s Player of the Year award at the end of the season.
Ford – on loan from Salford City Reds this season – scored four tries in a sparkling individual performance out wide.
“Jon is a finisher, and he took his tries well,” said Oldham assistant coach Lee Spencer, who was in charge with Scott Naylor unable to attend for personal reasons.
“He hit some good lines and finished all the tries well.
“For one of them he took three players over with him – they took some scoring and weren’t just sitters.
“Jon is only a young fella but he’s slowly and surely improving.”
