Gav Duffy hat-trick lifts Keighley against Wibsey Warriors
The Warriors made a great start to the Premier Division contest as the speedy Nick Fontaine crossed to score, with Luke Helliwell stepping up to add the extras.
But the top-flight new boys rallied and hit back to establish a 16-6 advantage before the interval with tries from former Cougars player Gav Duffy (2) and Danny Lunn.
Wibsey showed great determination in the second half and clawed their way into an 18-16 lead thanks to tries from Lewis Barrett and Jimmy Rodgers.
Helliwell was on target again to convert both efforts but Keighley equalised with a Callam Hudson penalty before two tries in the last five minutes snatched the points.
Duffy completed his hat-trick after a 50-yard run by Danny Spencer, who then scored the promoted side’s final try himself.
Second-rower Danny Conroy was Wibsey’s man of the match.
West Bowling were also involved in a topsy-turvy game as they lost 24-16 at Hunslet Old Boys.
The Bradford side were ruthlessly punished for any lapse in concentration in the first half and looked totally out of it after falling behind 24-0 after just 35 minutes.
But there was some good news on the stroke of half-time as winger Chris Curtain squeezed in at the corner and scrum half Ben Heald kicked a fantastic touchline conversion.
Bowling then came out for the second period fully fired up and, after continued pressure, staged a gutsy fightback.
First Liam Coe crossed thanks to a superb break by full back Liam Darville and great support play from Ethan Ryan.
Minutes later Jack Dawson completed a sweeping move to crash over in the corner, with Coe slotting over the conversion.
But with the clock against them, Bowling were unable to add to their points tally again and eventually pulled up just short.
Aidy Leek took their man of the match award, while Ashley Hutchinson and Jack Milburn both had stand-out games.
Clayton suffered an even more agonising defeat to visitors Greetland in Division Two, going down 26-24.
The hosts twice built up a commanding lead, initially going 18-0 up and then leading 24-10, but were unable to hold off a strong Halifax outfit.
Try-scorers for Clayton were Simon Giles (2), Paul Crossley and Jamie Waterman, with Josh Machin kicking four goals.
