Keighley Cougars 0

Wakefield Trinity 64

KEIGHLEY Cougars Reserves conceded 12 tries against a youthful Wakefield Trinity, who thoroughly taught their hosts a lesson.

Wakefield opened the scoring after five minutes as Nico Devittoris dived over in the corner when the hosts failed to clear a loose ball. Luke Hooley managed to convert.

Harvey Whiteley burrowed over from dummy half after the visitors won a penalty straight from the re-start. Hooley managed to convert, this time from an easier angle.

Again the visitors scored from the re-start as link-up play between Elliott Caine and Jay Haywood-Scriven after a missed Cougars tackle sent Robbie Butterworth under the sticks unopposed. Hooley converted.

Hooley this time turned try scorer as he skipped through the weak Keighley defence to score. He added the extras himself.

Oliver Hill added his name to the scoresheet as he went over in the corner. Hooley added the extras from a difficult angle.

Cougars came close to crossing the whitewash themselves but Jordan Parry’s effort was disallowed for a forward pass.

The visitors did cross the line before half-time as Elliott Caine went from provider to try scorer as he went over before the hooter. Hooley converted, sending the visitors in at the break with a 36-0 lead.

Jacob Patrickson found himself free on his 40-metre line and raced 60 metres to cross. Hooley, who was facing possibly his easiest kick of the night, somehow managed to fire the shot wide.

Daniel King ran through a defender after the hosts gave away a penalty for obstruction. Hooley managed to convert.

Jack Ray added his name to the scoreboard too as he managed to expose a gap in the defence to run in freely to the line. Tom Ashen, who was had been put in charge of kicking duties, added the extras.

Robbie Butterworth added his second as the home defence was again exposed, leaving him a free run in under the sticks. Ashen added the extras.

Harvey Whiteley also added a second late on as he crossed from dummy half. Hooley converted to complete the scoring.

Dean Muir and the reserve team will have a lot to think about before they host the Welsh Students next Saturday.
