WEST Bowling's chance of making the play-offs in Kingstone Press National Conference League Division Two ended with 36-8 defeat at Askam.

Bowling were well beaten by a good side but the sin binning or dismissal of no less than three players for dissent did not help their cause.

Discipline is an issue that coaching duo Ryan Hunkin and Adrian Leek will want to address but they will be happy overall with a campaign of consolidation following last season's title win.

Bowling managed to post a try in each half, thanks to winger Nick Fontaine and centre Adam Reardon, while forward Nat Light took the man-of-the-match award for his stand-out performance.

Bradford Dudley Hill, relegated from Division One and who will now definitely be league opponents for Bowling next season, lost their final league game 30-18 at home to York Acorn.

Tries came from man of the match centre Dan Lee, hooker Ben Sheridan and second-row forward Andy Walker, with full back Simon Sewell adding three goals.

However, Hill had Elliot Cousins dismissed for dissent after 51 minutes and Walker (fighting), Aiden Batey (dissent) and Cousins (dissent) sin-binned in what was a stop-start, penalty-ridden match.

Lee's try and Sewell's first goal tied the scores at 6-6, but they were 20-6 behind when Cousins was dismissed, with Walker being sin-binned along with Acorn's No 8 Adam Endersby just two minutes later.

Ironically Hill won the rest of the match 12-10, courtesy of tries by Sheridan and Walker and two goals by Sewell.

Winger Neil Wall and Batey pushed Light close for the man-of-the-match honours for Hill.
