By Jason Whitty
Despite Irlam losing players due to work, injuries, shopping and girlfriend trouble, the Hornets won easily against home side Higginshaw.
The match also saw the three debut appearances in Irlam colours of Daz Evans, Karl Leighton and 18-year-old Jack Mckeever.
On a cold wet and muddy Oldham day, the Hornets went into a 26-4 half-time lead with Joe Connor, John Brookes, Andy Hamilton, Ryan Ellis and Lee Salisbury all scoring tries and Chris Drench kicking three goals.
In the second half the Hornets scored through Ryan Ellis again, Dan Brown and Mark Salisbury with Chris Drench again kicking the goals to leave the score 38-16.
Man of the Match for Irlam went to Lee Salisbury for yet another hard-working captain's game.
The next match for Irlam Hornets will see them play at home to Widnes Tigers on Saturday 20th October 2012 with a 2.30pm kick off at the Salford City Stadium at Barton.
Irlam Hornets are also looking to recruit new players who can train Tuesday and Thursday nights and play on Saturdays.
