FIRST DIVISION champions Slaithwaite Saracens had little difficulty getting the better of Keighley Town as they cruised to a 56-2 away win.
Even though the home side produced a spirited display, it wasn’t long before the visitors were in control.
Damian Kenchington was the first to strike after five minutes and by half-time, the Holliday Cup winners had opened up a 24-4 lead.
A length-of-the-field try from Stuart Dunbar was the highlight, while Richard Flooks and Darren Hawkyard also scored tries and Danny Garside landed the conversions.
Man-of-the-match Simon Burkenshaw ran in two quick tries at the start of the second half.
This was followed with tries at regular intervals from Ryan Johnson and Lee McAfferty and two long-range scores from props Richard Brooke and Matt Lodge.
Garside complete the scoring with four more conversions.
At the same time, Emley Moor began the countdown to the end of their campaign with a 44-22 defeat at Clayton.
Having secured their Division I status, Moor sent a weakened side into action and that proved their downfall against a strong Clayton team.
But the opening exchanges suggested Moor could take the contest as they raced into a 14-0 lead down the slope.
Karl Adamski set the ball rolling with a penalty and followed up with a conversion after a Jack Dyson try.
The influential Adamski was then involved in Emley’s second try, kicking through for Tom Beaumont to follow up for a second converted score.
Towards the end of the half, however, the Bradford side began to claw thair way back and had reduced the deficit to 14-10 by the break.
Adamski’s early second-half penalty nudged Moor 16-10 ahead, but Clayton then began to take complete command to open up a 44-16 lead before Beaumont grabbed a second late consolation converted try.
