Drighlington beaten by Seaton in the National Conference League


IT WAS a truncated weekend amateur rugby league schedule, with only a handful of teams in action.

West Bowling was gameless, so stay mid-table in National Conference League Division One, and neither is Bradford Dudley Hill, which is stuck at the foot of Division Two.

Drighlington was in the Division Three action, but they might have wished they hadn’t cared.

Their solid start to the season is fast becoming a distant memory, and they were beaten 66-12 at Seaton Rangers, meaning they remain third with just 10 points from 14 games.

Harris Brereton and Thomas Pickles crossed the blank for Drig, as Cameron Jones scored twice, but the hosts blew them away with a 12-try volley.

In Yorkshire Men’s League Division Two, Odsal Sedbergh claimed bragging rights in a close contest at Northfield, beating hosts Wibsey Warriors 16-6.

The visitors scored within sixty seconds after Jack Appleyard collected a kick from Shaq Jones, before Jones went from provider to goalscorer adding a second.

Young winger Adam Cash scored an impressive touchdown on the stretch in the far corner to put Odsal ahead 16-0 early in the second half.

The hosts recovered one and then looked to build the momentum for a turnover when Sedbergh’s Adi Doherty was shown a red card for hitting on time.

However, defenses held firm on both sides and Wibsey couldn’t make the extra man count as no further points were scored in the final quarter.

The result kept Odsal fourth in the nine-team table, but now with a three-point gap over Wibsey in fifth.

Wyke also moved up to fourth, in the three-seven-team division. They comfortably beat fellow countrymen Heworth 24-0.

Finally, in Division 7B, it was the bottom two that went head-to-head, and visiting Brighouse Rangers A prevailed at Silsden Storm A, winning 36-18.
