A ONE-HIT wonder or the start of something special?
That’s the question St Joseph’s will be hoping to discover in the positive after tomorrow’s Pennine League Premier Division clash at bottom club Elland.
After losing their opening three fixtures back in the competition’s top division, coach Jody Shaw’s side got off the mark last weekend with a thrilling 28-27 triumph at Kippax Welfare.
That should give them a great deal of confidence ahead of tomorrow’s trip against an Elland side still searching for their first win after three failed attempts.
First Division Moldgreen are also looking to maintain their winning form.
Last time out, the side from the DRAM Centre secured a 28-16 triumph at Greetland All Rounders, and now they will be bidding to secure win No3 of the campaign at home to Birkenshaw.
There are two intriguing battles in Division II, with leaders Newsome Panthers and second-placed Emley Moor hoping to maintain their 100% starts to the season.
Moor will be in particularly buoyant mood ahead of their game against Stanningley A, which is their first of the season at the Welfare Ground, while the Panthers will stay top with a win at Dearne Valley Bulldogs.
Lindley Swifts have made an excellent start to their Third Division campaign and will make it six wins out of six and retain top spot with an expected home success over Littleborough.
After a shaky start to their Division IV season, Meltham All Blacks are now starting to gel as a team.
And that was very clearly reinforced with last week’s 16-6 victory over Stainland Stags.
The key now, of course, is can the All Blacks back it up with a win at Silsden Park Rangers?
Underbank Rangers celebrated their first success with an outstanding 46-2 triumph at Brighouse Rangers A, and they will make it two wins out of three with a home win over bottom club Stainland.
In Division V, Moldgreen A look for their first win at Keighley Albion A, while St Joseph’s A aim to make home advantage count against Woodhouse Warriors.
