Your News Clitheroe 6 - Hutton 104

Hutton sealed an emphatic victory with a 16-try demolition of Clitheroe which keeps them top of North Lancs 2. The hosts had no answer to Huttons pace and handling ability that saw forwards and backs link well throughout the game.

Hutton fell behind early in the game to a penalty but responded well to register their first try minutes later when Craig Cameron fended off tacklers to score in the corner. A second try soon arrived when the forwards rolled towards the line and Brad Horton crashed over from close range. The home side were successful with another penalty attempt to bring the score to 10-6 but Hutton replied with another try as Adrian Harrison found space to drive over the line. Tobutt converted to take the score to 17-6. Hutton were on top in all aspects of the game, with the lineout functioning well and also winning scrums against the head. Pete Sanderson was next to cross for the visitors, finishing off a flowing team move and then Cameron added his second try of the afternoon when his pace was too much for the Clitheroe defence. Tobutts conversions took the score up to 31-6. Harrison then registered his second try of the game following some good work by the forwards. Hutton ended the half with another two tries; Kev Strange found himself in space to score underneath the posts and then Cameron collected his own chip to complete his hat-trick in fine style. Tobutt converted both tries to bring up the 50 point mark.

The second half followed a similar pattern to the first, with Hutton dominating all areas of the game and enjoying all the possession and territory. After a great mazy run, Craig Dootson crossed for the first try of the second half and supported play well to score his second try minutes later. The visitors extended their lead further after Cameron finished off a good team move to score his fourth try of the game. Tobutt added three more conversions to take Huttons advantage to 71-6. Clitheroe were struggling to mount any attacks and couldnt find a way through Huttons strong defence. The scoreline extended further when Andy Tobutt made a midfield break to touch down underneath the posts. The one-way traffic continued as Hutton added more tries with Ben Fleetwood crossing and then Cameron securing his fifth try of the game. Hutton squandered a couple of opportunities to make the score even more emphatic but werent to be denied in the final minutes as substitute Tom Bailey and scrum-half Stuart Little rounded off a comprehensive performance. Tobutt converted both scores to take Hutton past 100. The referee blew for full time minutes early which prevented Hutton from adding to their total.

With three games remaining, Hutton stay top of the pile and welcome Chorley to Police HQ next week hoping to maintain their unbeaten home record.
