Leigh Centurions 40-14 Keighley Cougars
Brierley hat-trick sets up Leigh victory
Dual-registered Castleford half-back Ryan Brierley scored a second-half hat-trick as Leigh beat Keighley 40-14 to move second in the Co-operative Championship.
The Centurions started slowly and trailed to an early Sam Obst try at Leigh Sports Village but hit back to lead 6-4 at half-time after a Kevin Henderson touchdown.
The hosts then pulled away in the second half through Brierley's efforts, two more tries from Dean McGilvray and another from Martyn Ridyard, who also kicked six goals.
The Cougars' other tries came from Jason Demetriou and Semi Tadulala, who earlier had a spell in the sin-bin.
