Hessle suffer at Goole
HESSLE competed well for the first hour of their Yorkshire Division Three derby at Goole before the hosts took control of the last quarter to run out 39-12 winners.
A try from Ben Richardson in the first minute of the second half, converted by Callum Cone, made it 15-12 and at this point it looked as though the outcome could have gone either way.
The next 20 minutes were evenly contested and there was no addition to the score but a try for the hosts in the 60th minute opened up an eight-point gap and Goole added a further three tries as Hessle tired.
The game's first touchdown came in the fifth minute from Goole.

The next few exchanges were even before Cone was wide with a long-range penalty attempt.
Hessle did level the scores when a defence-splitting pass from Matty Ayers sent Jimmy Harrison darting through a gap and the winger outpaced the cover in a direct run to the line for a well-taken try.
Goole regained the lead with a converted try on the right and, on the stroke of half-time, another goal made it 15-5 at the break.
Mike Ayers ran strongly to set up an attacking position for Hessle in the first attack of the second period and when the ball popped out near the line Richardson was on hand to pounce for a try, which Cone converted.
For the next 20 minutes, Hessle came under pressure in defence and it eventually led to a try.
In the 68th minute, another converted try made it 27-12 and, with Hessle disrupted by a number of injuries, Goole took advantage to add two further tries in the last eight minutes, one of which was converted.
