Thornhill undefeated in tough Division Two

THORNHILL Trojans continued their strong start to the National Conference League Division Two campaign with a 24-12 home win over Salford City Roosters.

The Trojans remain unbeaten while the Roosters are still looking for their first win this season.

Anthony Harris was the man of the match for the Trojans and he opened the scoring on 14 minutes with a try, converted by Andrew Bates.

The Roosters hadn’t helped themselves by having Paul Morgan sin-binned for a professional foul two minutes earlier but they did hit back just shy of the midway point of the half with a converted Bradley White effort, before Rooster Mike Foster was sin-binned for use of the knees.

Two tries from the prolific Mindaugas Bendikas saw the Trojans hold a 10-point lead.

Liam Green and Andrew Muscat exchanged second-half efforts with Bates and White landing the subsequent conversions.

The game was put beyond doubt when Bates landed a penalty late on.

The Trojans are currently fourth and are one of five teams on six points after three games this season. The Overthorpe Park side look to continue their 100 per cent start to the season with a win away at Stanley Rangers tomorrow (Saturday, 2.30pm).
