Wids make it four in a row - Widnes 36 Wigton 20
8:40am Monday 30th September 2013 in Sport
Widnes made it four from four with this win over Wigton at Heath Road.
They were good value for the victory, building up a 17 – 0 lead with tries from Mike Lamb, Dave Welsh and Paul O’Connor, and a touchline conversion from Chris Atkin.
Wigton replied with a penalty before Paul O’Connor popped up to score his second along with a Leadbetter conversion to make it 24 – 3 at half time.
The Cumbria side reduced the arrears with two tries in five minutes before Rob Critchley settled any Widnes nerves with a fine solo effort.
Still, though, Wigton failed to give up, and full back Wood scored their third try. It was left finally to Kevin Leadbetter to wrap things up with his late effort, which he also converted to secure another bonus point victory.
Widnes travel to Wilmslow on Saturday, kick off 3.00pm.
