Barrow Raiders 18-32 Halifax RLFC
Halifax too strong for Barrow
Ryan Fieldhouse and Danny Cowling each scored a pair of tries to lead Halifax to a 32-18 Kingstone Press Championship victory over Barrow Raiders at Craven Park.
Niall Evalds drew first blood for Barrow and Ryan Shaw converted but Danny Cowling went over shortly after and Steve Tyrer's goal levelled the scores.
Evalds again crossed for the hosts with Shaw adding the extras but Halfiax battled back and Cowling's second of the afternoon brought the visitors within two points.
But tries either side of half-time from Ben Johnston and Fieldhouse, both bettered by Tyrer put Halifax in control.
Tyrer converted Fieldhouse's second try and another four-pointer from Paul Mennell gave the visitors more breathing space before Evalds completed his hat-trick with Shaw adding the extras four minutes from time.
