Pennine League Premier Division title chasers Fryston Warriors continued their winning run with Saturday’s 40-6 home victory over a gallant Queensbury side.

Fryston were given a few scares in the opening 20 minutes but eventually ran out comfortable winners.

The Warriors shuffled their line-up and rested several players.

Hooker Jack Bedddis made his debut and Jack Pickerill made his second appearance of the season.

It took Fryston 30 minutes to hit top gear after flying wingman Andy Matthews had opened the scoring with the first of his three tries.

Aaron Dobek added the conversion with the first of his five goals from five kicks.

Dobek’s magnificent long ball put Matthews in for his second try to make it 12-0 at half-time.

Fryston played much better in the second-half. They tightened their defence and their handling was much sharper.

Mikey O’Donnell crashed over to extend their lead. Fryston soaked up Queensbury pressure before they shot further ahead when Matthews grabbed a length of the field interception try to complete his hat-trick.

Fryston composed themselves and instead of trying to score off every move like they had in the first half they bided their time and waited for the openings to come.

They struck again when Jimmy Cryer linked from full back to score out wide.

Fryston started to shuffle the side around and Queensbury capitalised to score their only points with a converted try.

Fryston soon got back into their rhythm and Dale Cogan showed a clean pair of heels to the Queensbury defence to score.

Minutes later Dale Wynne did exactly the same on the other side of the field. Cogan added the goal to round off the scoring.

Fryston’s man of the match award, spomsored by Glynn Fox, went to Lee who worked tirelessly in attack and defence. He was followed closely by Cryer and Matthews.

Fryston host Sharlston this Saturday (2pm). A win would see Fryston go top of the league in their final fixture before they play Drighlington in the BARLA Yorkshire Cup final at South Leeds Stadium on Sunday, December 28.
