THORNHILL Trojans haven’t given up hope of back-to-back promotions in the National Conference League following a solid 36-16 triumph over Bradford Dudley Hill in Division Two.
Ben Kendall took the man of the match award for the Trojans, leading from the front and helping himself to a second-half try.
Thornhill led 10-6 at the break with a brace of tries from Danny Ratcliffe and one goal from Sam Ratcliffe.
Hill replied with a Danny Samuels try and Simon Sewell goal.
Samuels, Neil Wall and Elliott Cousins were all sin-binned for dissent with Anthony Huby going for a professional foul.
Samuels added an early second-half try with one from Liam Naven plus a Sewell conversion, but the Trojans capitalised on Hill’s lack of numbers - George Stott, George Woodcock, with two, and Sam Ratcliffe went in while the kicker added two more goals.
Seventh-placed Thornhill are now just two points behind second-placed Askam in what is proving to be an unpredictable campaign in Division Two.
The Trojans travel to Wigan St Judes tomorrow (Sat Aug 20, 2.30pm).
