WIDNES gave a good account of themselves against a strong and very young LSH development squad side.
It was always going to be difficult but the visitors showed at times that they will have plenty to offer in this division.
The forwards started particularly well and created the opportunity for a penalty goal by scrum-half 'Ivan' Winstanley. But LSH used their superior pace to ease away from Widnes.
The Heath Roaders refused to give in and late on, Brian Gill pulled off the tackle of the match as one of the LSH wingers broke clear.
Widnes' only try came after 30 minutes after the forwards had made in-roads, enabling that man Gill to crash over wide out.
