TRAFFORD MV made it three wins in a row in the North Lancs/Cumbria Division with a 21-15 home win against Wigton.

On a heavy pitch, Wigton were first to get into their stride and heavy pressure from the opening whistle brought an early try for the visiting side as Dan Cozens crashed over wide on the left.

The continued onslaught then saw Steve Harris get a touchdown close to the left of the uprights and a successful conversion made it 12-0 to Wigton.

The hosts then stifled the opposition and the scores remained the same at half time.

In the second half, Trafford began brighter but had to wait until midway through the half to reduce the arrears.

Young hooker Kieran Lally smashed through the defensive line after some great handling from the home side and with the kick close to the sticks, Pat Eccles slotted the conversion over.

MV's Jamie Kingdon was having a good game and as play broke down the right flank he was on hand wide on the right to follow up a good kick and chase and get the touchdown. Eccles again converted to give MV a 14-12 lead.

The lead was short lived as Read kicked a penalty for Wigton but Kingdon would prove the matchwinner.

MV went through several phases of play and he took a short, hard pass from Eccles at full pace and his size and speed were too much for the defending tacklers who were shrugged off as he bulldozed over the line.

Eccles capped a good day all round as he converted to close off the game in MV's favour.

MV have now consolidated ninth position and are level on points with eighth-placed Fleetwood.

They are at home again on Saturday when Aldwinians are the visitors, kick off 2.15pm.
