Wharfedale receive shock in Yorkshire Cup final
Hull 20, Wharfedale 10
Hull, from SSE National League Two North, notched a shock 20-10 victory over Wharfedale in the Centurion Yorkshire Cup final at York last night.
The defence from a side that are a division below the Greens won the day on a sodden pitch.
However, the east Yorkshire side also had the surer handling and tactical awareness.
On the other hand, the Dalesmen, coached by Tom McGee, paid the penalty for trying to run the ball from deep in the opening 20 minutes in taxing conditions.
Both sides missed a penalty in the first half before Hull winger Will Robinson crashed over in the corner after a fine break by full back James Wigglesworth.
Things got worse for Wharfedale early in the second half when they failed to clear their lines, Robinson scoring again and fly half James Cameron converting for 12-0.
The sin-binning of Hull lock Chris Murray gave the Greens a lifeline, and they scored a penalty try which full back Lloyd Davies converted.
But a Cameron penalty when Hull were still down to 14 gave them more breathing space and, although Davies landed a penbalty, Anthony Maka got a try for Hull, who then showed more solid defence.
