WYKE made it ten wins in ten thanks to a returning hat-trick hero.

Centre Calvin Barker came back into the side and helped Wyke to a 30-16 home victory against York Acorn with a treble.

The hosts made the best possible start, scoring from their first set.

Gary Worley put Alec Williams through a gap to bundle over with three tacklers clinging to him.

Things got even better for Wyke when a high kick was dropped by the York winger, allowing Brad Peel to pounce.

Scrum-half Brad Clarkson was unable to add the extras to either try.

York were next to score when the visitor's kick fell to their full-back who eventually got the try despite a last ditch Jimmy Waine tackle.

Wyke were in no mood to let their lead slip though.

From their next set, Barker took full advantage of sloppy defence to score his first of the afternoon, adding his second moments after.

Clarkson added the extras to both Barker tries, to ensure Wyke turned around at 20-4 to the good.

Both sides had a player sin-binned early in the second half, with York powering over out wide in response.

Wyke then got a quickfire double, which saw Barker seal his hat-trick.

Clarkson travelled 50 metres before finding Tevin Campbell who, after a juggling act, send Barker racing to the line.

York did score again after the referee sent Brad Peel to the sin bin for a professional foul with nine minutes remaining.

But, the Wyke pack rallied and Luke Robinson pushed York back to ensure the two points went to the hosts.

Coach Ian Wormald said: "It was a tricky day for us, as we knew York would come with a good side after seeing what they had to offer over there.

"We could have done better in areas, but this has shown me we can win tough and our pack should take the credit for today, with all of them standing up and beating their opposite numbers both in attack and defence.

"It was great to see both Calvin and Jordan back in the squad as well, they are both a massive part of what has been a good few years."
