Championship leaders Ovenden came into the game with a converted try but Toll Bar hit back immediately with Joseph Barron going over to give them a 14-6 lead at the break.

The visitors - who beat Sharlston Rovers in last year's final at Featherstone Rovers on their way to a silverware treble – came out strong for the second half and moved into the lead with two tries and a conversion.

But Toll Bar held their nerve and they hit back late in the game.

Gaz Carey crossed the line in the corner before Lawton slotted over a superb kick from the touchline to give Toll Bar the win.
