Pilkington Recs run riot against Stanningley
1:29pm Thursday 1st May 2014 in Sport
JOSH Lynch scored four tries in a blistering 23 minutes spell as Recs turned in an attacking masterclass - winning 94-6 - against bottom club Stanningley.
The writing was on the wall for the visitors early on as Ian Stanley scored after just 36 seconds after breaking from his own half before interchanging passes with his winger Danny Filson to touchdown in the corner.
Tom Roughley scored his first try Recs after nine minutes, which was quickly followed by a Danny Lynch try, both tries were converted by Lynch.
Greg Smith was next on the score sheet, ghosting through the defence from a scrum, he then completed a quick fire brace minutes later after dazzling the opposition with his dancing feet to score beneath the posts.
Will Abbott continued with the scoring, latching on to a Bostock chip beating the cover defence to the ball, to ground inches from the dead-ball line and Filson completed the first half-scoring after good build up work by Lynch and Andy Knapper sent him racing to the line.
Lynch converted all four scores to give a half-time score of 40-0 Recs were clearly in a ruthless mood and the try of the match came within minutes of the restart after Knapper fielded a kick on his own line, beating four defenders before breaking free and outpacing his opposite full-back to score a try reminiscent of Greg Inglis.
Josh Lynch was next on the score sheet, supporting a John Rees break scoring the first of his four tries, Stanningley then got on the score sheet for a deserved try following slack defence by Recs from a scrum.
That was scant reward as Roughley, Knapper and three tries by Josh in a blistering 15 minute spell saw Recs supporters looking at the scoreboard wondering if enough time remained to hit the century mark.
With 10 minutes remaining Recs surged forward to try and hit the milestone.
Smith completed hit hat-trick with a wonderful solo try.
Mike Garrity scored his first of the season crashing over from close range and Knapper scored his hat-trick score before the final whistle blew.
Greg Smith was the D Sparrow Plumbing & Heating Man of the Match, with Andy Knapper taking the AMDEC award.
