No Rugby League this weekend for both our Men and Women’s sides, however, both Trinity PDRL and Trinity LFC were back in action with derby day fixtures. Read our round-up below.
PDRL | Trinity 10-10 Castleford
Wakefield Trinity PDRL battled to their second draw in two games as they drew 10-10 with Castleford Tigers.
Two weeks after their first game of the season against Leeds Rhinos, an Eastmoor homecoming was in the pipeline for Trinity PDRL as they sought for their first win of the season.
With a home advantage and oozing with confidence, it was Trinity who hit the front foot early on. Neat work in the middle set up Callum Parkinson, who ghosted through to open the scoring.
Despite the momentum pendulum swinging in the home side’s favour, Trinity were unable to take their hard-fought lead into the interval as Castleford’s Chris Hall touched down for their first try of the season.
Looking to hit the front foot once again, Trinity started the second-half the brighter of the two sides, however, it was the Tigers who roared into the lead, Hall again touching down.
Despite the deficit, Trinity mounted a comeback, which finally came when Parkinson found some space to draw the scores level late in the second period.
With not much between the two sides, neither team were able to find the winning score, with the points shared at Eastmoor.
Women’s Football | Trinity LFC 0-2 Altofts Ladies FC
Wakefield Trinity Ladies FC was unable to muster a derby day victory as Altofts Ladies FC cruised to a 2-0 victory on Sunday.
Following their hard-fought draw 1-1 draw with Harrogate Town Ladies AFC last Tuesday, Trinity LFC went in search of another friendly victory as they headed to Altofts.
However, it was the home side that hit the front foot, striking a late first-half double.
Just seven minutes before the break, Trinity was unable to deal with an Altofts corner, with the ball being tucked into the net from close-range before the home side added to their newly found advantage three minutes later.
Despite a solid second-half display from Trinity, it was Altofts who took the derby day victory.
