Ladies extend their lead at the top

Another bonus point win for the ladies

The ladies extended their lead at the top of Championship 2 North with a 7 try victory over Southport.

With 3 wins already over Southport in the last couple of years confidence was high but the visitors are a decent side with a strong pack and good defence so winning wasn't just going to be a formality.

light rain caused a few handling errors for both sides in the initial stages but play soon settled down. Southport had the first chance to put points on the board when Barnsley were penalised but the resulting kick was wide.

Barnsley did open the scoring after 15 minutes when Southport passed the ball back into their own goal area from a lineout but one of the Southport players was tackled and the ball was spilled and Becky Patrick pounced on the loose ball for a try. Alix Taylor's conversion was unsuccessful when the ball hit the upright and bounced out.

Barnsley doubled the lead 5 minutes later when Simone Saunders powered through the Southport defence on the wing to score, this time Alix Taylor's kick was wide.

Barnsley kept the pressure on and Alix Taylor chased down her own grubber kick to touch down for Barnsley's third, this time she was successful in converting her own try.

Just before half time Jess Roberts got on the scoresheet with a sniping run through a gap in the Southport defence. Once agin Alix Taylor's conversion hit the upright and bounced out.

HALF TIME: Barnsley 22 - Southport 0

Barnsley carried on pushing at the Southport defence and were rewarded with another try from Alix Taylor who touched down for Barnsley's fifth try, securing their 7th try bonus from 9 matches. Taylor also added the conversion.

Barnsley's sixth try came after one of the Southport players tried to ground the ball in their goal area but like Barnsley's first try the ball spilled out and Georgia Staples grounded the ball for the try.

Alix Taylor rounded off the match with her hat-trick and ultimately the best try of the match which include some great passing play between herself and Simone Saunders although the conversion was missed.

FULL TIME: Barnsley 39 - Southport 0

Second placed Birkenhead scored another victory but could only manage a 10-5 score against Kendal.

Barnsley's next match is at home this Sunday against Sefton, kick off at 2pm.
