Celtic suffer heavy home defeat

DEWSBURY CELTIC lost heavily to Division Two rivals Wigan St Judes in the first round of the National Conference Trophy.

The gulf between the two sides was evident as Wigan ran in 11 tries at Park Parade.

But Celtic had a ray of light in Anthony Dunford, who scored a hat-trick of tries.

Judes were ruthless throughout, however, leading 40-6 at the break.

Tom Owen opened the scoring with six minutes gone and Gareth Thomas converted.

Nathan Bevan and Connor Parkinson both scored two tries and there was one each for Olumide Oladele and Gavin Roden as Thomas took his goal tally to three.

Scott Robinson, who ended the game with five goals, landed two in the first half. The scoring trend  continued in the second half as Joe Brady (two), McNally and Roden went in to complete the scoring.
