MELTHAM All Blacks are out of the Andrew Bennett Memorial Trophy after suffering a narrow 10-6 home defeat to Hollinwood.
Heavy rain during the week had turned the Meltham pitch into a mudbath and it prevented the hosts from playing any flowing rugby.
Not surprisingly, the tie remained tight throughout, with the scores locked at 6-6 at the interval.
It was Hollinwood who opened the scoring before the All Blacks hit back with Oliver Storey finishing off a well-drilled move. Richard Ellis converted.
The home side did apply a fair amount of pressure after the interval, but against the run of play Hollinwood raced away to grab the matchwinning try.
It was a result the All Blacks didn't really deserve, especially with the likes of man-of-the-match Sean Robinson showing such good form.
There was also Trophy disappointment for Underbank Rangers.
The Division IV side faced a massive test at unbeaten Third Division leaders Rotherham Roosters, but produced a battling display before going down 30-10 in South Yorkshire.
At the same time, there was a 32-4 Supplementary Cup defeat for Slaithwaite Saracens A at West Leeds.
The visitors were up against it right from the start as their hosts scored from the first set of six.
By half-time, the lead had been extended to 18-0 and the game had already slipped beyond Slaithwaite's grasp.
Justin Brown scored a late consolation try.
