Lewis Evans starred for Dudley Hill as the Bradford side earned a superb 38-20 National Conference Division Two victory at Crosfields.

Evans capped a man-of-the-match display with a late try after Hill had made a flying start to both halves of the contest.

Winger Neil Wall and stand-off Ryan Dickinson scored early tries, with the resulting conversion by Wall giving his side a ten-point advantage in as many minutes.

Crosfields struck back with two quick tries to draw level, only for Dickinson to dance his way over for his second and then hooker Liam Brentley used his weight to power over just before the interval.

Wall added the extras and Hill were again quick out of the blocks at the start of the second half, with Wall converting his own second try.

The hosts reduced the deficit to ten points but a rampaging try from the impressive Liam Jordan for Hill finally put the game beyond doubt, with Wall tagging on the conversion.

Crosfields managed one further try before Evans ended a towering performance by high-flying Hill with his deserved score.

Queensbury's hopes of climbing the Premier Division table took a blow when they were beaten 16-6 at neighbours Keighley Albion in the Pennine League.

Bury made a great start when Ben Moran converted his own try for a 6-0 lead but Albion overcame spirited defence by the visitors to go in at the break 10-6 ahead, Danny Barrett nailing the second touchdown.

The second half saw Queensbury take the game to their hosts but a brilliant solo effort from Mark Smith killed off their chances.

Birkenshaw continued with their superb Division One revival by thumping Illingworth 44-8.

The arrival of coach Mark Robinson has given the club a new lease of life and this victory leaves them just outside the promotion places.

Forward Paul Bancroft lead from the front with an immense display that earned him the man-of-the-match award as well as three tries.

He was ably assisted by loose forward George Flanagan and centre Paul Clarke, who picked up two tries a piece, while scrum half Matt Honeysett booted four goals.

Victoria Rangers suffered a crushing 42-8 defeat at Thornhill Trojans A to leave them rooted at the foot of the table.

Leaders West Bowling A claimed local bragging rights as they defeated rock-bottom neighbours Dudley Hill A 30-16 in Division Two.

Bowling's experience proved decisive, with veterans Martin Tordoff and Steve Gregory among the visitors' scorers. Further tries went to burly half-back Mark Dunning, Mathew Sharp and John Johnson.

Struggling Odsal Sedbergh fought bravely but were unable to stop promotion-chasing Stanningley A running out 26-18 winners.

Another fiercely-contested local derby saw Queensbury A lose out 48-10 to high-flying Wyke in Division Three, despite the best efforts of Danny Hill and Andrew Barraclough.

It was not until midway through the first half that Wyke took the lead but they then pulled clear, before Brett Marriott and Jason Basiw added late consolation tries.

Thornton remain second in Division Five after a nailbiting 6-6 draw at Keighley Town A, Ben Southgate rescuing a point to keep his side in touch with leaders Sheffield.
