HUDDERSFIELD’S Academy side travelled to Bradford & Bingley and turned on the style to secure a 24-3 triumph.
Bradford came out strongly, but it was the visitors who took the lead after 20 minutes with a try from Tom Clarkson, after a great break from No8 Sam Scott, and Tom Owen added the conversion.
Huddersfield maintained their 7-0 lead until half-time, despite being reduced to 14 men when Ashley Donkersley was sin-binned for a trip.
The hosts grabbed an early second-half penalty to open their account.
But that proved the moment for Huddersfield to step up a gear and, after another break from Scott, prop Alex Battye dived underneath the defence for an unconverted try.
Winger Brad Gorman set up the next score when he broke clear and fed Clarkson to put hooker Franny Enstressengle away for the sccore.
And Huddersfield went in search of a fourth try for the bonus point, which came when fly-half Owen dummied the defence to score between the posts and then converted his own try.
Huddersfield’s Under 15s enjoyed a cracking 19-5 victory at Ilkley to move into the second round of the Yorkshire Cup.
They led 7-0 at the break with a try from impressive inside centre Louie Cooper and an Adam Sykes conversion.
Cooper grabbed his second try early in the second half, leaving Sykes another easy conversion.
And after prop Joe Scott had produced a crucial trysaving tackle, Huddersfield grabbed the clinching score just before the final whistle through Edward Black.
YMCA’s Under 11s competed in the District Festival at Skipton.
They were well beaten 21-0 in the first game against the hosts and then lost 22-14 to Bradford & Bingley.
Jacob Holmes scored his side’s first try of the day before newcomer Ashley Boyles set up Holmes for his second, converted by Euan Czerepaniak.
The Under 10s were also in Festival competition at Ilkley where they won two games and lost two.
They were unable to compete with a very large Old Brods squad first up, losing 6-0, but came very close in the second match before going down by a solitary score to Bradford & Bingley.
In match three they finally got their reward, when two tries from Joe Holdsworth, two more from James Dodson and some solid defending from skipper Josh Bennett led the way.
Holdsworth (2) and Dodson were again on the board in the final game against Keighley, while there were outstanding efforts from Tyran Kitson-Perfitt and Callum Fox.
The Under 16s and Under 14s teams are still in need of more players. Training tomorrow at YMCA is for all teams from 10.30am.
All new players welcome.
