Rochdale stay top of League One table after Barrow victory
Leaders Rochdale Hornets continued their impressive start to the Kingstone Press League 1 season after they beat Barrow Raiders 18-4.
Paul Crook\'s penalty put the Hornets in front before Dale Bloomfield\'s converted try stretched their advantage to 8-0. Crook slotted another penalty before Barrow responded through Cameron Pitman\'s try just as time expired in the first half.
But Rochdale\'s Jono Smith went over the whitewash moments after the restart, with Crook adding the extras. Crook would then convert his third penalty as Barrow suffered their first home defeat of the campaign.
