Pennine League 11-a-side: Worth Village 22 Upton A 34

DESPITE it being nearly a month since their last encounter, Village started the game at full speed. They scored within the first five minutes, with man of match Quinton Sneyd breaking the line and offloading for Hafa Karim to score.

Worth kicked the two points but Upton responded five minutes later with a score in the corner.

Some great set plays put Village back into Upton's half, with some strong running from Lee Hird and Liam Gillard.

Jake Feather came from nowhere to score under the sticks but Village took their foot off the gas and Upton came back with two quick tries before half-time.

The second half was full of end-to-end rugby with some great tackling from Steven Woodhead and Connor Caveney.

Upton added another try but Village stepped up their game as Sneyd dummied his way over the line. Liam Mitchell then forced his way over, after Rocky McNulty had put him through a gap, to score Worth's best try of the game.

However, the heat and the young legs of Upton saw the visitors head off any comeback to finish winners by 12 points.
