EAST LEEDS suffered heartbreak as they lost in the 77th minute at Ince Rose Bridge.
They had led 10-4 at half-time following tries from Mark Greenwood and Rhys Kilbride, Dec Thompson adding a goal.
Nathan Conroy extended the visitors’ lead with two penalties in the second period before the Wigan side rallied to draw level at 14-14.
Nevertheless, Conroy’s drop goal put Easts back in front once more and their sterling defence looked set to earn them a valuable two points.
However, Bridge finally broke them at the finish to leave them empty handed despite the brilliant efforts of man of the match Kilbride.
Tries for wingers Harry Grayson and Gregory Colbridge were the only consolation as depleted Oulton Raiders were hammered 46-8 at Thatto Heath Crusaders.
Hunslet Warriors were also on the end of a heavy away defeat, losing 28-6 in Hull against Myton Warriors, scrum-half Jordan Gale scoring their solitary try.
To complete the away-day misery for all four of the division’s Leeds sides, Milford Marlins were beaten 26-10 at Underbank Rangers.
In the Premier Division, Lock Lane lost 24-10 at Siddal.
Centre Lewis Price and second-row Chris Siddons grabbed tries, Aaron Dobek adding a goal, but it wasn’t enough for the Castleford visitors who trailed just 12-6 at the break.
Craig Miles. Jake Corney and Omar Al Rawl all scored braces as Hunslet Club Parkside racked up a 62-0 scoreline at Stanley Rangers in Division Two.
Their other scorers were Andrew Hullock, Chris Boyce, who also added two goals, Mark Stubley and Jack Carville.
Stanningley lost 42-22 at Saddleworth Rangers while Dewsbury Celtic fell 18-10 at home to Bradford Dudley Hill.
