Blues flying high after perfect start
NEW Brighton are currently riding the crest of a wave in South Lancashire / Cheshire One League.
They recorded their fifth successive win on Saturday 41-0 against Tyldesley and sit at the top of the table with a two points advantage over Isle of Man Outfit Douglas.
Lowly Tyldesley produced some strong play at times but the Blues were generally in command.
Touch downs from Vinnie Dutton, Sean Ellis and Brett Williams plus a Stephen Dean conversion made it 17-0 by the interval.
Later Anthony Birley, Will McCaig, Kati Tuipulotu and Williams breached the visiting rearguard and there were two more successful kicks from Dean.
This was a workmanlike performances by Brighton and the confidence is building.
Hoylake made it tough for the islanders at Melrose Avenue but were just edged out 10-13 in a tense affair.
Anselmians are enjoying a much better season. Their latest outing culminated in a 29-22 victory away to Winnington Park.
Wirral made it five wins from five outings in North One West with a 22-10 success at home to Broughton Park and not surprisingly head the pack.
Alistair Baker was the star with a hat-trick of tries. Dan Harvey converted two of them and also landed a penalty for good measure.
Broughton never gave up the fight and after being 22-0 down rallied to achieve two touch downs and a goal. But they just missed out on a bonus point as did the winners.
Birkenhead Park bounced back to winning form as they despatched Leigh 48-0 at the Upper Park.
It was all over at the break when they led 34-0 thanks to touch downs via Lawrence Cowan, Sam Chidley, Joe Spencer, Luke Swan and Gareth Jones plus three conversions and a penalty from Dave Hall.
Leigh were better in the second period but Park stretched away with further tries from Billy Wooff and Cowan plus both goals from Hall.
Peter White made a promising debut at stand-off for Park who were able to include centre Greg Hughes in their starting line-up.
Hughes was red carded the previous week in the match at Kirby Lonsdale but the decision was rescinded by the Cheshire Disciplinary Committee who determined no alleged gouging had taken place.
There was agony for Caldy as they were pipped 27-31 away to high riding Otley.
It was a fifth defeat on the trot but really their play over recent weeks has deserved better reward.
Port Sunlight played out a 31-13 draw against visiting Oswestry in South Lancashire/Cheshire Two.
Wallasey travelled to the Isle of Man but could not open their account at Ramsey who finished 21-0 to the good.
Prenton top Division Three after winning 26-0 away to Liverpool University.
Ellesmere Port were also victorious 31-0 at Helsby.
Oldershaw and Oxton Parkonians did not play.
Caldy face another tough match against Luctonians at Paton Field this coming Saturday as the league programme continues.
Birkenhead Park have a cross-river derby at LSH and Wirral are on the road to Widnes who are just behind them in the table.
Hoylake welcome Winnington Park to Melrose Avenue with away fixtures for Anselmians at Manchester and New Brighton at Sefton.
Other games include Port Sunlight at Ormskirk, Wallasey v Isle of Man outfit Vagabonds, Oxton Parkonians at Congleton, Ellesmere Port v Holmes Chapel, Oldershaw v Knutsford and Prenton v Buxton.
