WYKE have followed up their victory in the Bradford ARL Jack Senior Memorial Trophy in the spring by winning Yorkshire Men's League Division Four.

They clinched promotion in emphatic style, defeating nearest rivals Crofton Sports 64-4 at Towngate, while Worth Village lost 24-0 at Crigglestone All Blacks.

Like Wyke, Queensbury are also having a fine season, being second in Division One after a 28-18 win at Skirlaugh Bulls.

The game was a personal triumph for Tom Hainsworth, who scored all five tries, with Ethan Sharp adding four goals.

Bury are five points behind Heworth, but have two games in hand.

Bottom club Keighley Albion could only manage a Dan Connell try in a 24-4 defeat at third-from-bottom Oulton Raiders.

Luke Dawson led the way in fourth-placed Odsal Sedbergh's 50-22 victory at basement boys Newsome Panthers in Division Two.

He scored three tries and kicked seven goals, while other tries came from Nathan Merchant (2), Shane Scrimshaw, Paul Bottomley, Kyle Terry and Jonny Ward.

Wibsey Warriors defeated cellar dwellers South Leeds 24-0 at Northfield Road.

Birstall Victoria went down 34-12 at home to second-placed Elland in Division Three.

If it was thrills you were after, look no further than Birkenshaw Bluedogs, who beat visitors Heworth A 28-26 in an emotional afternoon against the same opponents who the Bluedogs were facing when their player Max Blakeley died last month.

Wyke Academy, cast adrift in Division Five, lost 24-0 at New Earswick All Blacks A.

Having been looking at a demotion berth as recently as the end of June, West Bowling are now hunting down a play-off berth in Kingstone Press National League Division Two.

Their latest victory – by 22-20 at Crosfields with the last kick of the match – made it five wins on the bounce, and they are now only two points behind sixth place and the coveted end-of-season extras.

After trailing 6-0 early doors, Richard Lumb scored an unconverted try in the 29th minute, but the hosts bagged two more tries to carve out a 16-4 lead.

However, as it often seems to do, Bowling's fightback started with a second-half try by Chris Watson, whose 51st-minute score was converted by Liam Coe.

Lumb's second touchdown, in the 62nd minute, brought Bowling back to within two points, but the hosts increased the pressure with a try five minutes from time to make it 20-14.

Winger Joe Illingworth's 78th-minute try in the corner gave the visitors renewed hope, and Coe's conversion levelled matters.

However, Crosfields paid the penalty for opting for a short kick-off in the hope of regaining possession.

The ball did not go the required ten metres, and Coe landed the subsequent winning penalty from the halfway line to move Bowling up to eighth.

Bradford Dudley Hill gave an improved display in Division One, but lost 30-16 at Featherstone Lions.

Neil Wall's try, converted by Simon Sewell, tied the scores at 6-6 after 32 minutes, and they hit back to trail just 22-16 after 68 minutes following tries by Kyle Bateman and Willy Woodhead, with Sewell converting the latter try.

However, they conceded two tries in the last five minutes of a scrappy encounter, one of which was converted.

Best for bottom-of-the-table Hill were prop Charles Marsh, player-coach Anthony Huby, who was at half-back, and full back Sewell.

However, they also had Bateman (grappling on floor) and interchange Lee O'Connor (late tackle) sin-binned, while Lions prop Liam Jackson (grappling on floor) suffered the same fate.
