Christmas comes early for Wids

Vale of Lune 10 Widnes 18.

WIDNES gave themselves an early Christmas present with this outstanding result at Powderhouse Lane.

In dreadful conditions, they trailed by 10-0 at half time, before mounting a second half comeback to take the spoils in a game which finished in almost total darkness.

Kevin Leadbetter finally got Widnes on to the score sheet with a penalty, before Rob Critchley scored a try after 53 minutes which Leadbetter again converted to square things up.

Five minutes later, big Arnie Haydock charged down a desperate clearance kick to touch down and give the visitors the lead, before Kevin Leadbetter booted over a 45 metre penalty to wrap things up.

Lee McDermott’s side can now enjoy a break until January 4, with a trip up the M6, to face Wigton.
