NCL round-up | Hunslet march on

NCL round-up | Hunslet march on

By Ryan Booth

As Hunslet Club Parkside edge closer to the Premier Division title week-by-week, we took a closer look into how the Yorkshire-based side got on this time out along with a round-up of the rest of the action from across the NCL.

Premier Division | Hunslet Club Parkside 40-6 Myton Warriors

Table-toppers Hunslet Club Parkside notched their 11th win from as many games after confidently dispatching Myton Warriors on home turf.

A double from Kieran Murphy alongside further scores from Jamie Bradley, Jamie Fields, Ben Shulver, George Clarke and Wayne Foster ensured the hosts secured an emphatic win.

Myton did respond with a try from Nathan Slater, but three goals apiece from Fields and Daniel Rowse rounded-off a terrific all-round display.

Division 1 | Pilkington Recs 16-18 Ince Rose Bridge

Ince Rose Bridge produced arguably he shock of the weekend after earning their second win of the season at Pilkington Recs, in what was the sole Division 1 fixture this week.

Despite the best efforts of Ryan Hilliard, Ian Stanley and Danny Lynch, the visitors produced a valiant effort to secure two vital points in their bid to steer clear of the drop to the second tier.

Wiganers Bridge will now be full of confidence when they welcome Oulton Raiders to Pinfold Street this coming Saturday (2:30pm kick-off) - just two points separates the sides in the league table.

Division 2 | Wigan St Judes 36-16 Askam

Wigan St Judes bounced back from the disappointment of last week's defeat at Stanningley with a resounding victory after overhauling high-flying Askam 36-16 at Keats Avenue.

Benjamin Jones, Paul Pendlebury, Joseph Brady and Declan Hidden all claimed respective braces whilst Declan Hidden also crossed over to put the result beyond doubt.

The visitors did claim three consolation efforts through Mark Tyson, Thomas Hopkins and Jordan Jones, but four goals from Ben Fisher ensured the hosts secured maximum points.

Division 3 | Barrow Island 44-22 Oldham St Annes

Barrow Island picked up their seventh win from eight games after triumphing 44-22 over a spirited Oldham St Annes outfit.

Jaimie Dalloway's brace, combined with additional efforts from Callum Cashin, Matthew Whitehead and Callum Fletcher, had given the Saints a match-winning platform.

However, the hosts regrouped and claimed a deserved victory after running in eight tries to continue their remarkable climb up the Division 3 table.
