SIDDAL backed up their excellent hard-fought 25-20 National Conference League Premier Division win at Hull Dockers with a thrilling 24-22 triumph at Oulton Raiders.
The visitors led 16-12 at the interval and then just did enough to hold on to secure their sixth win from 11 top-flight starts.
Emerson Newburn led the tryscoring with two, while Shaun Blackburn, Richard Lopag and Shaun Garrod also crossed for scores and Chris Brooke landed two goals, while loose-forward Ollie Marns was the man-of-the-match.
There were also victories for Halifax’s two Second Division sides.
Ovenden remain at the heart of the title race with a 32-6 victory at home to Normanton Knights, while mid-table Elland won 22-8 Askam.
Much of the Ovenden damage was done in the opening half as they built up a 24-0 interval lead thanks to tries from Shaun Smith, Luke Sutcliffe, Peter Leeming, Andrew Brocklehurst and Luke Sandland, who also added two goals.
Then in the second half they made sure of the two League pints with further scores from Niall Brady and Matty Short.
At the same time, Elland were chalking up their sixth success up at Askam.
Jack Fairbank, Marc Shickell, David Montgomery and Paul Davies grabbed the tries, with Junaid Malik adding the goals.
For the second time this season Slaithwaite Saracens came up against a National Conference League side because they didn’t have a game, and ultimately paid the price as they suffered a 34-16 Yorkshire Men’s League Group Six defeat at East Leeds.
The young Saracens again matched their more experienced opposition for 50 minutes.
Tries from Jayden Wood, David Roebuck and Tom Guinan and two goals from William Allen put them in a strong position at 16-16 early in the second half, and at that stage the Slaithwaite forwards were in the arm wrestle.
But when the hosts introduced four experienced players off the bench at the same time, the tide began to turn and the game went away from the Saracens, which unfortunately seemed to make a mockery of a competition designed to develop second-team and junior players.
