Women’s RL | Trinity 6-74 Rhinos
A depleted Wakefield Trinity Ladies RL side were unable to muster any sort of issues for the Rhinos as Leeds took the two points in the Women’s Super League.
Despite a spirited Trinity performance, it was the undefeated Rhinos who took the high-scoring victory as seven unanswered second-half points condemned the home side to defeat.
Peppered by injuries and absentees, it was Trinity who started the brighter of the two sides, as multiple Rhinos errors gave Trinity some much-needed confidence early on.
However, despite the strong start, it was the Rhinos who cruised ahead to an early advantage, as five quickfire tries put Leeds in the ascendency within the opening half-hour.
Despite the 26-point deficit and not disheartened by their opening 40-minute display, Trinity managed to pull one back just before half-time.
After gaining great field possession, a high kick was hoisted into the Rhinos try area and Abby Price was able to pick up and touch down to give Trinity a lifeline.
An outstanding first period of Rugby League by Trinity seemed to frustrate the Rhinos as the champions turned on the style in the second period.
Seven unanswered points cross the Trinity whitewash after the interval, leaving the home side without a win in 2021.
Another two break in the pipeline for Wakefield as the ladies return to action on 30th May against Featherstone at Weetwood.
Women’s Football | Farsley 6-5 Trinity
Wakefield Trinity LFC fell agonisingly short as they played out an entertaining 6-5 defeat against Farsley.
A quickfire start saw two goals in the opening 13 minutes as Farsley took the advantage before Trinity’s quickfire equaliser drew the scores level.
Looking to avenge last week’s derby day defeat against Altofts, Trinity piled on the pressure as a mistake at the back offered the home side the lead before a beautifully weighted pass from Sibbald gave Megan Brackenbury her first senior goal.
As the momentum pendulum swung towards the visitors, it was the home side who struck once more before another Trinity penalty offered them the chance to equalise.
Great play from Sibbald as she danced her way through the defence to commit the Celtic defender, offering the chance for Stuart to tuck away from the spot as the sides went in level at the break.
Contrary to the first-half theme, it was Trinity who took the lead for the first time in the contest shortly after the interval. Excellent play by Renwick as she drove into the box, finally firing a low drive to see Wakefield take the advantage.
Nevertheless, it was the home side who struck dominance late on as three goals cemented the victory for Farsley. Trinity were able to get one back, though, as Brackenbury struck in the dying embers, but it was not enough as Wakefield succumbed to defeat
