NEWSOME Panthers Under 15s and Under 14s have just secured success at the double.
The Under 15s completed a West Riding League and Cup double thanks to a 20-18 Challenge Cup triumph over Sheffield Hillsborough Hawks.
And the Under 14s also completed their second Cup win of the season by defeating Queensbury 44-4.
A strong second-half performance was the key to the Under 15s' victory.
A John Waite try was all they had to show for their first-half efforts as they trailed 12-4.
But they then turned on the style after the break, with Waite adding his second, Joe Haywood scoring twice and Liam Carter racing in for the other to put them ahead.
But it was only a trysaving tackle from man-of-the-match Steve Lockwood in the final few moments that guaranteed the success.
An awesome display of power and skill was at the heart of the Under 14s' 40-point final triumph.
By half-time, the Panthers were already in complete control as they opened up a 30-0 lead.
Darren Lamb opened the scoring, with other tries coming from Kieron Sill, Luke Nelmes, Harry Ainsworth and Lamb, with James Usher landing the conversions.
Lamb (above) completed his hat trick after the break, with Usher and Tom Broom adding the final tries and Usher slotted over one more goal.
These were just the latest successes for the Panthers, coming on the back of the Under 18s' win over Ovenden in the West Riding Cup final in which Austen Barrowclough scored a try despite suffering a badly damaged thumb.
In the League, the Under 12s thrashed Hoyland Vikings 62-0, despite fielding just 11 players due to injury and holidays.
Jordan Higo could not be stopped in scoring four tries and setting up several others, while Luke Newton, Joe Gillespie and Macauley Bucci grabbed two each.
Edward Wallace and Conan Pierre added the others, with goals coming from Gillespie (5), Wallace and Higo.
There was also a big win for the Under 9s who beat Siddal 50-18.
Tries came from man-of-the-match Ashley Armitage (3), Izaac Farrell (2), Ryan Dunbar, Josh Clay, top grafter Ashley Netherwood and Rob Denton.
Goals were added by Dunbar, Farrell, Josh Edwards, Netherwood, Elliot Lander and Jacob Peel.
