RHYL’S Youth team kept their recent momentum going after a Simon Evans penalty landed back-to-back wins over Denbigh.

With the first and second team out of action, the junior side came to the fore, with Tim Back getting the match off to thrilling start with an electrifying break in the first five minutes.

Back set up Seb Collinge for the opening try, which Simon Evans converted to put his side 7-0 up.

Rhyl continued to dominate the game and scored a second try through Louie Collinge, following some excellent wide support play from the back division.

Denbigh started a fightback in the second half by pressuring Rhyl's line, and though they were initially repelled by a superb defensive effort, two quick tries got them back into the match.

With the scores level going into the last quarter, Denbigh had their tails up and enjoyed the best of the finale, with the Rhyl backline holding firm to see off the storm.

Man of the match Harry Lowe put in an inspirational performance, taking the ball and driving forward powerfully, and when he was held up short of line Evans stepped up to calmly slot the winning penalty kick between the posts.
