AN early score for Josh Simm established early dominance for Widnes West Bank in their fourth away game in succession.

Jordan Barr was next to cross followed by a Ste Mellor converted touchdown for Jack White.

Barr scored again followed by White for his second. David Jones added the two points.

Jones again added the extras to Adam Middleton’s score to bring up a 30-0 half time lead.

The combination of a huge slope and a new found determination from Rangers then saw West Bank on the back foot for the first time in a long time.

Energetic Evan Simons relieved the pressure for Ste Mellor to score the final points with the conversion.

The win means that Bears finish top of their group in the NCL Interim League but finish off the campaign with two home fixtures against Waterhead and Eccles before going into the play-offs.

THIS was an even game until a Panthers scoring burst took the game beyond Bears.

Bank went into the break with an 8-6 lead courtesy of a Jack Murphy brace and Terry Cowan’s touchdown, with Andrew McWhinnie adding the extras, restored West Bank’s advantage before Chorley rallied.
