Fryston Warriers maintained their unbeaten record in all competitions this season after making a flying start to Saturday’s home Pennine League Championship match against St Joseph’s.

Six tries in the first 20 minutes put the Castleford side on their way to a 58-22 win over their Huddersfield opponents.

Defending league champions Fryston, sponsored by Monkhill Sandwiches, were 32 points ahead at half-time.

Lee Robinson’s second minute try put them on their way.

Wayne McHugh then darted in from 50 metres out before Ryan Meah went over from close range.

James Cryer was the next to cross before Dale Cogan grabbed two tries and Az Dobek added his fourth conversion.

St Joseph’s hit back with two tries to make the half-time score look a bit more respectable but the visitors were soon under the cosh again in the second-half.

Connor Jordan went over before Meah bagged another long-range try and Robinson collected his second.

Knowing the game was won Fryston took their foot off the gas and the visitors capitalised by scoring two more tries but the Warriors finished the game on top with McHugh scoring three quick tries to take his tally to four on the day. Morgan Punchard added one conversion.

Fryston’s MOM award, sponsored by Mark Oxtoby and Alan Scarfe, went to McHugh. Punchard, Meah and Lee Land also had outstanding games.

This Saturday Fryston visit Lindley Swifts who are also unbeaten. Both sides have won their first five league games.
