Challenge Cup knockout blow ends a miserable campaign for Heworth ARLC
9:57am Monday 29th October 2012 in Sport
Heworth ARLC brought down the curtain on a troubled campaign with a 32-6 Carnegie Challenge Cup defeat at Underbank Rangers.
The Villagers, who finished the National Conference League division two season without a win, exited the knockout competition at the preliminary round stage.
Underbank took an early lead with a try by Alex Chatterton, converted by Neil Barrett, but Heworth hit back with a 13th-minute try for Michael Brown and a 26th-minute penalty from Gary Watkinson.
The home side led 16-6 at half-time after tries by stand-off Will Midgley and full-back Sam Hendrick, with one Barrett conversion. Second-half scores were added by winger Richard Aka, Midgley and prop Sam Dalby, with Barrett goaling two.
Prop Mike Crossman starred for Heworth, as did under-18s forward Liam Braithwaite.
