The ground was covered in "chaff" to ensure this
Christmas Day game went ahead and Wigan would have been glad to get a poor
performance at Oldham out of their system. Teddy Flowers made a "brilliant
run" to score under the posts and Elijah Prescott converted for an early 5-0
lead. Later Johnny Roberts scored, unconverted, for 8-0 then Bill Yates try
made it 13-0 after Prescott kicked his second goal. Savile for Stockport had
a goal kick attempt charged down before Roberts second try wrapped up a 16-0
win for Wigan in what was their best performance of the season so far.
Try - 3 points. Conversion - 2 points. Drop Goal - 4 points. Penalty - 3
points. Goal from Mark - 4 points.
