Cup Quarter win
May 18 2003
Whitehaven 54 (16) Dewsbury
Tries came from Hill (2),
Hutton (2), Joe, Jacko, Steve Wood, Lester and Fatialofa.
In the end an emphatic victory
for the Haven , secured on the back of a tremendous second half
display , and a deserved place in the Arriva Trains Cup semi
The first half wasn't a great spectacle for the 1500 fans who
turned up ,as Haven made too many mistakes and gave away possesion
to the Yorkshiremen .It was 6 all on the half hour mark with
Cumbrians only try coming from Glen Hutton plus a darren Holt
goal , just before the break Haven added tries from Leroy Joe
and Mark Jackson to establish a flattering 16-6 half time lead
The second half was a differant story as a rejuvinated Haven
totally out classed the visitors It was one way traffic as Haven
scored a further 6 tries through Howard Hill (2) ,Aaron Lester,
David Fatialofa ,Steven Wood with Glen Hutton bagging his second
of the afternoon the scoring was completed with a total of 9
goals from kicker Darren Holt .
A number of eye catching individula performances with David Fatialofa
getting the official man of the match award, though Howard Hill
and Leroy Joe both had outstanding games .
Haven now travel to face Leigh Centurions in the Semi Final on
June 8 th .A tough game and one where they will definitley be
underdogs however there is a steely determination to go one better
than last season when they lost in the semi final to Hull KR
. If they can reproduce today's second half form then Steve McCormacks
men could well progress.
