CLECKHEATON dominated at home against Percy Park to claim a 47-14 win which put them third in North One East.

The hosts welcomed flanker Joey Carley back to the team after injury and Ben Etchells.

Park kicked off but the ball flew directly over the touchline and Cleckheaton took the scrum option, driving the visitors back which set the tone for the day.

It was a tight game until Cleckheaton scored on 21 minutes. A strong run by Matt Piper saw him pass to Oliver Depledge and the centre drew the final defender to put James Wilson over.

Dale Breakwell successfully converted his first attempt of the day.

The Moorenders were starting to gain the upper hand whilst Park were guilty of coughing up possession in close quarter exchanges.

On 37 minutes, Depledge was on the end of a sweeping move and he crossed the line for his fifth try of the season. Breakwell converted and Cleckheaton led 14-0.

Jack Marshall should have added a third try when a loose ball was kicked downfield but was knocked on.

Josh Plunkett won the ball at the line out and offloaded to Tom Lillicrop, who stormed away to cross for his first try for the team.

Breakwell added a third successful kick from a difficult angle to make it 21-0 at half-time.

Marshall went on a run down the right and crossed in the corner for a fine individual try to continue Cleck's momentum after the break.

Michael Langlands put Percy Park’s first points on the board when he scored a try in the 47th minute.

Jack Seddon, who was having a fine game, went on a run before setting up Depledge, who scampered away for his second try of the game.

Mike Hayward touched down for his 12th try of the season after Seddon galloped downfield and put him in.

Park got a second try when their number six, Leo Caulfield, crossed after a determined charge.

But Marshall scored another try when the ball squirted out of the ruck on Cleck’s 10 metre line and he sprinted under the posts for a touchdown which Breakwell successfully converted.

Park tried to take advantage of the extra man after Tom Lillicrop was sinbinned but the players couldn't get over the line as the final score finished 47-14.

This was a big win for Cleckheaton, who climbed the table after Morley lost heavily at home to York. Seddon and Lillicrop walked away with the man of the match awards after outstanding performances.

This week, Cleckheaton are away at Huddersfield YMCA and will look to consolidate their league position.
