A penalty try clinched a late triumph for Wharfedale as they secured an excellent victory over last year’s runners-up Sedgley Park.

Rian Hamilton gave the hosts the lead as Dale centre Rhys Lovegrove opened up the opportunity for his teammate and the winger duly touched down.

Matt Riley scored to drag Sedge back into the game and they were ahead just before half-time as Jamie Harrison darted over.

But, the tables were turned after the break as Hamilton and Lovegrove both dotted down for the home side. Dale led for 15 minutes, however, Sedge hit back through Andy Riley to level the game up.

But at 19-all, the home side snatched the victory late on as they were awarded a penalty try after great work from Oli Cicognini and Matty Houghton.
