THORNHILL TROJANS dominated the second half of their game with Wigan St Judes to win 42-18 in National Conference League Division Two.
But with the sides going into half-time level at 10-10 the game was still on a knife edge.
Connor Parkinson opened the scoring for Judes and Gareth Thomas, later taken off with a head injury, added the extras for the away side.
The Trojans hit back with tries from Mindaugas Bendikas and Sam Ratcliffe, who added one goal.
An Olumide Oladele try shortly afterwards ensured Judes remained on terms.
The visitors weren’t level for long, however. Judes took the lead thanks to a Nathan Bevan try and Adam Lavin conversion.
The pressure appeared to affect the mid-table away side, who were desperate to close the gap on Thornhill in the table. The rest of the game belonged to the home side as they scored 32 unanswered points.
Sam Ratcliffe added another converted effort before Liam Morley, Jake Ratcliffe, James Craven with two and Jake Wilson added further Trojans tries with Sam Ratcliffe adding another three goals to secure the victory.
The Trojans lie seventh in Division Two ahead of their next outing at home to Bradford Dudley Hill (Sat Aug 13, 2.30pm).
