National Conference round-up: Results and scorers from Stanningley, Milford, Hunslet Warriors, Drighlington, Lock Lane and Thornhill Trojans
A personal haul of three tries and five goals from Tom Flannery - all in the first half - helped Stanningley to a 44-18 win over Leeds rivals Milford in National Conference group E.
Two of Flannery’s tries and all his successful kicks came in the opening half an hour as Stanningley raced into a 30-0 lead.
Sam Savage, Harrison Davison and Luke Townend also crossed before Steve Bacon hit back for Milford with a try which Jake Payne converted.
Flannery added his third touchdown before the break, to make it 34-6 and Ben Selby went over early in the second half.
Milford rallied with tries by Bacon and Kieron Webster - both of which Rhys Greenall converted - but Stanningley closed the scoring through a touchdown from Jack Smith, which Dean Parker improved.
A poor start cost Hunslet Warriors any chance of an upset against visitors Siddal, who led 22-0 after half an hour and went on to win 38-12.
Tyler Dargan and Liam Brown scored Hunslet’s tries, both converted by Jordan Gale.
Second-placed Hunslet Club Parkside’s derby with East Leeds was postponed and they seem set to miss out on top spot.
Regardless of Parkside’s result at Milford on Saturday, Siddal - whose only loss of the campaign so far was to the south Leeds side - will finish as group leaders if they win at home to Stanningley this weekend.
Group F’s bottom team Drighlington are still without a win this season, following a 50-18 loss to Castleford side Lock Lane.
Drighlington were 32-0 behind inside 30 minutes, but battled hard after that with Kieron Roche bagging a brace, Steve Meldrum also crossing and Michael Sanderson landing three goals.
Lewis Price and Joe Burton both crossed twice for Lock Lane and other try scorers were Lucas Noon, Tom Sowerby, Bailey O’Connor, Chris Siddons and Morgan Punchard.
Nathan Fozzard (four) and Mason Hare (three) kicked the goals.
Thornhill Trojans had to call-up ‘A’ team and Masters players to fulfil their fixture against group leaders West Bowling and were beaten 42-4.
George Woodcock scored for the Dewsbury side.
