22 August - Foresters 14-6 North Ribblesdale ----    24 August - Blaydon 34-24 Wharfedale ----

Wharfedale Rams 3 – 9 North Ribblesdale 2nd XV

This game was a true grit battle, which came down to a penalty shoot out. Both sides matched each other in all areas. Wharfedale took the lead 15 minutes into the first half with a penalty kick from Chris Sheryn. Both teams attacked and counter attacked but to no avail on the score board.
The second half continued in the same way with neither side able to get the upper hand. After 15 minutes North Ribblesdale drew level with Mike Richards kicking a penalty. 10 minutes later another penalty from Richards saw Ribblesdale take the lead. Wharfedale pressed for a score and missed a penalty to level. North Ribblesdale then kicked their third Richards penalty to extend their lead. Wharfedale continued to pressure the Ribblesdale 22 for the winning score but missed a second penalty and eventually the clock ran out.
A good hard fought spirited display by both sides.
