There were mixed fortunes for the Heysham Atoms’ youngsters on Sunday.

The under 18s were 30-7 victors at Blackpool Scorpions where as the under 13s went down 24-20 to Salford’s Cadishead Rhinos.

The more senior of the youth sides dominated their contest on the Fylde coast, pulling clear in the second period.

Archie Rich and Dan Helme crossed in the first half for scores converted by Will Hunt before adding four more after the break, Michael Forrest getting two, Helme getting his second with Connor MacIntyre also forcing his way over.

The under 13s’ loss was their first of the season despite playing some excellent free-flowing rugby.

Henry Higginson, Connor McGuinness, Callum Brodie and Simon Cody got the tries with Cody also adding two conversions.
