January 5th, 2015

Ilkley 3rds 7 – 27 Wharfedale 4ths

Wharfedale travelled down the valley for a post Christmas derby match between two evenly matched sides. The usual keenly fought contest was played out in good spirit by both teams. Wharfedale had a good experienced side against a more youthful Ilkley side. Wharfedale’s forwards just had the edge over the Ilkley pack and scored two unconverted tries in the first half to turn round 10-0 in front. The second half saw Wharfedale continue to play to their strengths, with forward pressure resulting in two quick tries in the first 10 minutes. Ilkley never gave up and got their consolation converted try midway through the second half.
Wharfedale had their final say with a converted try to seal the win.

Wharfedale scorers: tries – Paul Marklew 2, Ben Heyes, Sam Bradley, Jonathan Davies 1 each with Jonathan Davies adding 1 conversion.
