Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Aiden Batey scored two of the Dudley Hill tries Aiden Batey scored two of the Dudley Hill tries

The right-flank partnership between wingman Jamie Brentley and centre Aiden Batey produced a four-try haul as Bradford Dudley Hill registered a 32-24 home win in the opening game of their National Conference campaign against Stanningley at Parry Lane.

The speedy duo claimed a brace apiece in the Division Two clash, with further scores coming from Neil Wall, Adam Jefferson and Tony Huby plus two conversions from scrum half Simon Sewell and a solo effort by full back Dave Halley.

Victoria Rangers progressed 23-10 in the first round of the Pennine Supplementary Cup at home to Whinmoor Warriors.

Hooker Mickey Cunliffe was outstanding with two tries and was closely followed by full back Aiden Scully, who also crossed twice while adding three conversions and a drop goal to the final tally.

West Bowling A bowed out 24-16 at Illingworth A. They could only muster a bare 13 players and the lack of substitutes played a key factor in the final outcome.

Second-row forwards Reece Salt and Gavin Wilkinson crossed early on for Bowling and full back Karl Spring kept them in the hunt with a second-half try. Ryan Hunkin, Lee Hutchinson and Ben Cousins were also outstanding.

Pennine League action saw Wibsey Warriors miss out 20-12 at Queens in the Premier Division.

Free-scoring Warriors centre Nick Fontaine was again in top form with two tries and wingman Jimmy Rodgers also made the chalk.

Bank Top Harriers now face automatic relegation after failing to show up at Thornhill Trojans.

Queensbury overcame the dismissal of prop Lee Kelly with only 20 minutes on the clock to record a memorable 24-14 win at Slaithwaite Saracens in the Championship Division.

The Bradford side led 12-10 at the break thanks to tries from Andy Walker and Matt Keirman, both converted by Joe Flanagan.

Hooker Callum Murgatroyd was a tower of strength in the second half, when Jon Farr collected a clever Joe Walker offload and Sam Cheney matched him when he crossed the whitewash for the clincher. Flanagan again ensured full reward with the boot.

Odsal Sedbergh came out on top 28-18 in the Division One local derby against Wyke.

The highlight of the game was a battle of the enforcers between Sedge packman Olly Birkett and opposing prop Simon Owen that just about ended evens.

Sedge were 12-6 up at half-time and completed their task after tries from Kaine McEwan, Sam Greenwood, Luke Sellers, Jared Priestley and Shane Scrimshaw.

Wyke replied through Warren Pitman (2) and Ian Watkinson.
