Celtic lose to champions

DEWSBURY CELTIC were thrashed 50-0 away at Hunslet Club Parkside who, thanks to the victory, secured themselves the National Conference League Division Two title and with it promotion to Division One.

It was Hunslet’s 17th win of the current campaign and they were always in command of the match against relegation-threatened Celtic.

Luke O’Malley opened the scoring for Parkside after 15 minutes with a try. Jamie Fields landed the conversion.

Fields would end the game with a 20-point haul courtesy of two tries and six goals to take his points tally for the season to just short of 250.

Tries from Danny Harrison, Fields and O’Malley, plus two more Fields goals, gave the home side a 22-0 half-time lead.

Eight minutes into the second half Craig McShane added another with one for Ben Thorpe as Fields and O’Malley added the respective conversions.

Chris Boyce and O’Malley scored tries midway through the second half before another one from Fields three minutes from time.

Fields added two further conversions to round off the game’s scoring before the celebrations could begin.

Celtic will look to brush themselves down ahead of a crunch derby encounter at home to rivals Thornhill Trojans (Friday Sep 2, 7pm).
