HEWORTH ARLC made it five National Conference League wins in a row with a convincing 24-4 home win over Dewsbury Celtic.

Against the side that started the day in second in division three, the Villagers' better control of the ball in wet weather conditions and resolute defence were too much for the visitors.

The Black and Whites go fifth with the victory.

Heworth took an early lead following an astute Liam Jackson kick that was misjudged by the Celtic defence, allowing second-rower Gareth Watson to gather and crash over the line for an unconverted try.

On 13 minutes, Celtic briefly levelled with their only points of the game when centre Jamaine Akaidere took advantage of a rare defensive slip to score wide out.

But, just two minutes later, Heworth were back in front when debutant winger Rhys Bailey - one of the club's promising under-18s - found himself on the end of centre James Midland's pass to race in at the corner for another unconverted score.

With the Heworth forwards - and, in particular, Liam Richmond and Joe Fish - making good yards it was only a matter of time before Heworth extended their lead.

And they duly did when play-maker stand-off Ben Dyson-Dent forced his way over to give Heworth a 12-4 half-time lead.

The Dewsbury pressure went up a notch in the second half but Heworth's defence held firm. When acting half-back and man-of-the-match Josh Poulter crashed over under the posts from 10 metres out and second-rower Joe Deighton added the conversion, it was unlikely the visitors could come back.

And so it proved when, on 75 minutes, Morland was on the end of an astute Dyson-Dent kick into the dead ball area and Deighton added the extras to make the final score 24-4.

Among Heworth's star performers alongside were Watson and Richmond.

York Acorn 'A' went fifth in Yorkshire Men's League division two with a 38-28 win at Wakefield Hawks, making the most of Keighley Albion's defeat at Stanningley on Friday night.
