National Conference League Round-up – Week 15

Premier Division round-up 

WIGAN ST PATRICKS strengthened their position in the play-off places with a 43-6 home success over HULL DOCKERS. 

The win – the hosts fifth league success in a row – came following a seven-try show as hooker Brad Smith led from the front with a try and seven goals. 

Jayden Sandford (2), Tom Atherton, Jonny Brown, Keiran Harrison and Tony Suffolk also joined Smith on the score sheet, whilst a field-goal from Anthony Griffiths completed the St Pats scoring. 

For the visiting Dockers it was an afternoon to forget with the only bright spot coming when Andy Kay converted James Beaumont’s second half effort. 

LOCK LANE were knocked off the top of the table after going down 14-10 at WATH BROW HORNETS. 

There was little to choose between the top-two but the goal kicking of the Hornets Jason Connery proved the difference as the booted three goals compared to just the one from opposite marksman Danny Rowse. 

James McClelland and Ryan Amor grabbed the touchdowns for the home side, whilst a brace from Tom Wood meant that the Castleford side were always in with a chance. 

An incredible first half display helped THATTO HEATH CRUSADERS to a comfortable 60-24 win over SIDDAL. 

The St Helens-based hosts were 42-0 ahead at half-time and duly completed the win despite the visitors showing some improvement in the second period. 

Daniel Keane, Richard Mervill, Gareth Blackburn and Dominic Booth all touched down for the visitors as Gavin Stead added four conversions; however, it was mere consolation for a Siddal side which now slips to seventh in the table. 

Home full-back Shaun Quinn helped himself to a try and 10 goals in a man-of-the-match performance whilst Darren Woods was also amongst the points as he raced in for a hat-trick. 

Corey Lee, Keiron Maddocks, James Tracey, Ryan Heaton (2) and Chris Frodsham also touched down to complete a great display. 

WEST HULL kept the play-off hopes on track with a 28-18 win over YORK ACORN. 

Paul Shaw (2), Ryan Morrow, Sam Watson and Danny Swales supplied the tries for Wests as Scott Spaven added four goals. 

Acorn – who were just 12-10 adrift the interval – had a brace from Leigh Rientoul, plus efforts from Mike Embleton and Thompson to show for the efforts, with Anthony Chilton adding a conversion. 

EGREMONT RANGERS were too good for SKIRLAUGH as they ran out 38-14 winners. 

A Rhys Davies hat-trick played a major part in the win as Richard Farrer (2), Paul Corkhill and Ryan Barnes also crossed the whitewash. Five goals from Matt Bewsher completed their points haul. 

The Hull-based visitors managed two tries of their own through Matt Sheard and Dean Booth, as Ross Kemp slotted over three goals. 

EAST HULL eased themselves into mid-table with a 32-10 victory over MYTON WARRIORS. 

Tries from Dale Blakeley and Chris Lyth – plus the first of Carl Puckering’s four goals – eased the home side into a 10-0 half-time lead. 

Scott Partis, Puckering and a brace from Sam Cator underlined their dominance, with Myton just managing late efforts from Ben Cartmell and Ben Thorpe, one of which was improved by Kris Walker. 

Scott O’Brien produced a sparkling display with a hat-trick performance in LEIGH MINERS RANGERS 32-12 win over INCE ROSE BRIDGE. 

Jimmy Muir, Adam Thomason and Jonny Youds grabbed the other Miners tries as Youds (3) and Steven Marsh added the extras. 

Ince – who are in a real relegation scrap now – registered points via a brace from Michael Houghton and a goal from Chris Boylan.

MILFORD MARLINS moved into fourth spot courtesy of a 24-14 win at ECCLES.

Leigh Wheatley improved touchdowns from Boawe Rankin, Jack Adamson and David Heckles for the home side that were just 18-12 down at the interval. 

However, Underbank had just too much for the north east hosts and a clinical second half display saw them claim their eleventh win of the campaign.
