Reporter: Roger Halstead

Scott Naylor's boys produced a clinical, disciplined and at times polished performance to run in 14 tries with hat-tricks for winger Harry Maders, centre Zack McComb and hooker Matty Wilkinson.

Other try scorers for the home side were Anthony Bowman, Emmerson Whittel, Adam Brook and Kyran Johnson (2), while young half-back Brook kicked beautifully in a fierce wind to land 12 conversions from 14 attempts.

Oldham will be in the hat for two cup draws on Tuesday evening -- the fourth round of the Coral Challenge Cup and the first round of the new 1895 Cup.

Other Challenge Cup results today:  London Skolars 18, North Wales Crusaders 31; West Hull 26, Dewsbury Moor 10; Keighley Cougars 28, Distington 14; Whitehaven 74, Wigan St Pats 4; the Workington Town v Siddall tie was postponed because of snow.

The OuRLeague app team streamed the Oldham v Haydock tie instead.
