CALDY returned to winning ways with this emphatic victory against bottom of the table Halifax at Paton Field.
After two close defeats in the last two National Three North matches, there was always a sense of Matt Holt’s men shaking off the losses as they showed the Yorkshire club no mercy.
Mark Turner ran from his own half to score on nine minutes and Gavin Roberts added the extras.
On 20 minutes Caldy turned over another scrummage and Sam Dickinson’s run set up Andrew Soutar to score. Roberts converted.
Caldy came back with two more tries in the last 10 minutes of the half, as excellent continuity saw Ollie Cooper cross the line, followed on the stroke of half-time by Chris Buck. Roberts managed the first of the conversions to leave the score 26-0 at the interval. Caldy’s dominance of possession paid off early in the second half as Turner bagged his brace on 50 minutes.
An interception from Soutar on 54 minutes saw him run the length of the field to score and Roberts added from in front of the posts for 38-0. A try came for the visitors when Magee went over on 68 minutes and Ian Gordon converted for 38–7 but Roberts made it 45-7. A superb move was finished by Matt Pennington on 76 minutes and Roberts added two more points to take his personal tally to 17.
