Clinical finishing earned Aiden Wright a first hat-trick of tries in the National Conference League as Barrow Island claimed a play off place in Division Two with a 32-18 victory over Crosfields at Rating Lane last Saturday.

Try of the match, though, was from Sam Jones on 20 minutes when he levelled the match after Island had conceded the game's first try.

Jones fielded a deep kick 15 yards from his own line and, with defenders converging, burst through the first tackle, weaved through an attempted second and pulled away in style to score by the posts, he also tagged on the goal to level the match.

Crosfields were first on attack and took the lead on six minutes, dangerous stand off Jack Reid stabbed the ball to the Island line from where Max Anderson-Moore knocked on.

From the scrum, full back John Whittaker was held short only for Tony Millington to crash over from the play the ball, with Reid added the goal.

Island soon settled with Adam Jackson sending Allister McEwan to the line but he was held short.

Matty Brown then tested the visitors' defence with a fine run only to fall short. This lifted the Island who drew level with that spectacular Jones try.

Five minutes later, Island were ahead as Brandon Corrie, Jackson and McEwan paved the way for Wright to score an unconverted try.

Crosfields looked dangerous with ball in hand and regained the lead when Island were caught offside, allowing Hayden Jones to cross from close range and Reid added the goal.

Island worked hard for points and were rewarded when, after Jackson went close, the ball was in the hands of workhorse Carl McBain, who touched down, Jones adding the two pointer.

But disaster for the home side on the half-time whistle as prop Tom Brown crashed over and Reid's goal made it 16-18 at the break.

Island responded in the best fashion two minutes into the second period when Peter Rimmer forced his way over in the corner, with the touchline kick from Jones sailing high and between the uprights, 22-18.

Jones the tormentor then broke clear from deep inside his own half but was impeded in the tackle by full back Whittaker, who was dispatched to the sin bin.

This spurred on the Island and more quick hands from Jackson and McEwan had Wright in at the corner to extend the lead to eight points.

Crosfields tried hard to get over the Island line on several occasions, but the home defence wouldn't buckle as they stood firm.

Island stayed in control and the points were sealed when a great long ball from Jackson found Wright and try number three for the young winger followed, Jones completing the scoring with the conversion.
