Helsby 19 West Pk Warriors 29
The visiting Warriors won this match, but not without a fight.
An early penalty and try gave them an advantage but Helsby regrouped and responded with a push-over try.
Helsby were dominant in the pack but prop Jason Hocking was injured after 25 minutes after the scrum had been grounded on a number of occasions.
The home side still went 19-17 ahead from a brilliantly performed quick line-out with John Williams crashing over the line despite three of the away team hanging off him.
But the Warriors had experience and luck on their side and took advantage of a couple of fortuitous breaks to ground two tries and take the win.
The man-of-the-match award for Helsby was won by Bruce Rigby.
Tomorrow Helsby travel to Eagle Sports for the fourth round of the EDF Cup (2.30pm).
