The Heavy Woollen District ARL Under-18s side recorded an impressive 28-4 victory over Ossett last Wednesday.

Heavy Woollen controlled large periods of the game, with Yorkshire finding no way through their solid defence.

Patience paid off with the Heavy Woollen taking a 10-0 half-time lead after two great tries by outstanding Dewsbury Celtic centre Sam Halloran, who earned man-of-the-match.

Birstall Vic winger Callum Roberts converted the first.

Heavy Woollen continued to impress after the break and extended their lead with a further try from Shaw Cross player Nathan Wright, converted by Sharks teammate George Woodcock.

Yorkshire hit back momentarily when a kick was charged down and stand-off Reiss Butterworth picked up to race in from halfway.

Heavy Woollen made the game safe in the final quarter as Dewsbury Moor loose forward Jordan McNelly went in for a try before a fine individual effort by Birstall Victoria winger Jacob Fozard, both converted by Roberts, sealed victory.
