A second-half defensive effort of biblical proportions saw Douglas beat Glossop 20-0 at Port-e-Chee and climb to second place in South Lancs/Cheshire Division One on Saturday.
Two early penalties from the flawless Bryn Snellgrove gave Douglas the early lead.
A try from wing Adam Boyd consolidated their position and Snellgrove’s conversion left his side 13-0 in front at half-time.
Max Singer bulldozed his way over for a try early in the second half and Snellgrove’s conversion into the wind made it 20-0, before the shutters came up.
