Eagle 20 Ashton-under-Lyne 7

COACH Ryan Acton was delighted with his Eagle side’s second-half showing as they earned victory in the Lancashire Bowl on Saturday.

The hosts trailed 7-5 at the break at Thornton Road, but 13 unanswered points after the interval made the win safe.

Dan Pucill, twice, Ashley Losh and Joe Miller got themselves on the scoresheet for Eagle.

“We made too many mistakes in the first half, and when not in possession, we conceded too many penalties,” Acton said.

“The positive that came through in the second half is that, when we keep hold of the ball, our discipline and team work is good.”

Eagle travel to Clitheroe on Saturday, kick off 2.15pm.
