Ryan mighty as Wibsey beat Halifax Irish

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Wibsey's Ryan Smith Wibsey's Ryan Smith

Wibsey Warriors edged out Halifax Irish 26-22 in a thriller of a match in the Pennine League Premier Division.

Ryan Smith was a thorn in the Halifax defence and helped himself to two tries. Jimmy Rogers also picked up two tries while Ross Simpson completed the scoring, Luke Helliwell adding three conversions.

Queensbury struggled initially in their Championship encounter with King Cross Park before running out 30-4 winners.

With a strong wind behind them and playing downhill, Bury found the going tough as King Cross attacked continuously.

However a try from Andy Walker broke the deadlock before Jack Evison went on to touch down just before the break.

Bury looked more organised playing uphill and took the upper hand thanks to two excellent Jon Farr tries. Dan Hawksworth also got on the try-list.

Sam Cheeney picked up the man of the match award and young Nathan Ridehouse impressed on his first outing.

Odsal Sedbergh held on to fourth spot in Division One following an exhilarating 28-28 draw against rivals West Leeds.

Clayton were unable to post their first win of the season in Division Two as they went down 32-14 at West Craven.

West Bowling crashed out of the Pennine President’s Cup 42-4 at Drighlington.

Bowling started strongly, with veteran forwards Nigel Halmshaw and Lee Hutchinson marauding down the slope, backed by a heavy wind.

However, despite plenty of ball, Bowling were unable to break the Drig defence and turned around 12 points adrift.

Bowling opened the second-half scoring when Jason Marshall dived over.

However, the later double sin-binning of Sha Basha and Jack Milburn quickly put an end to Bowling’s cup aspirations. Prop Connor Wood was the stand-out man for Bowling.

Victoria Rangers coasted through the Hudson Foster Supplementary Bradford Cup semi-final with 44-6 success over Odsal Sedbergh A.

Jamie Kerr, Martin Southwell (2), Kallum Morris, Aiden Scully (2) and Isaac Brown (2) crossed for the Vic’s and Sedge hooker Robert Booth replied.
