Wath Brow hosted Lowca and in the end the top flight side proved too good and ran out 48-16 victors.

Jason Connery, Sam Bateson and Jamie Phillips also touched down for the home side.

For Lowca there were tries for David Colley, Keith Campbell, Allan Todd and Will Roley, with Campbell tagging on two goals.
