Warrington 28 Broughton Park 10

A BONUS point victory over Brughton Park moved Warrington to 10th in North One West though the scrap to avoid relegation is likely to continue until the season’s conclusion.

It was sweet revenge for an away loss earlier in the season.

“This was a must-win game,” said Warrington coach Andy Roberts.

“But we were much too quick for Park in all phases.

“We now look forward with confidence to ending our season on a high.”

Warrington began at full speed and took an early lead through Keiran Hughes, making a welcome return from injury.

Nathan Beasley then crossed and although Park enjoyed a purple patch they never got their noses in front.

Luke Gilhooley converted his own touchdown before final closure came when Tom Arnold picked up a loose pass on his own five yard line and ran 95 metres to score.

Lymm 9 Harrogate 26

LYMM still need one more win from three remaining fixtures to ensure survival in the North Premier.

Head coach Adam Fletcher highlighted what his men need to do.

“We’ve just got to keep working hard and believing in ourselves. If we do that, we will stay in this league,” he said.

But Saturday was frustrating, particularly with the lack of a cutting edge.

“It was another disappointing loss against a good side,” he said.

“We had opportunities in the first half to score more points but unfortunately we lacked accuracy and composure.

“I was really happy with our attitude and defensive work throughout.”

Lymm twice held the lead courtesy of Tom Shard penalty goals.

One promising move from Lymm saw colt Joe Senior make ground but he had to retire with a pulled hamstring.

It was soon after that Harrogate took a lead they never lost.

Lymm: Gavin Woods, Adam Bray, Jordan Widdrington, Aaron Rashid, Matty Connelly, James Pitcher, Jake Ashall, Joe Watson, Andy Davies, Tom Bray, Joe Senior, Ben Stansfield, James Kimber, Luke Richards, Tom Shard. Reserves: Nick Ashton, Rob Makin, Scott Redfern.
