CALDY won 37-6 at home to Dudley Kingswinford, but earned a deserved bonus point with a last minute length of the field try from wing Josiah Dickinson after a Gavin Roberts hat-trick had proved the difference.
Dudley did not have an ideal start to the game after their fly-half Gareth Bown got injured early on in the game.
Dudley were first on the scoresheet, however, with two penalties from the boot of replacement kicker Jon Higgins who nailed two difficult chances.
Caldy hit back with penalty of their own before Roberts scored his first try after an excellent pass from Rich Vasey.
The rest of the half saw both sides trying to play rugby but struggling somewhat in the slippy conditions.
After the break, Caldy took control with two quick penalties from the boot of Vasey.
Roberts then scored his second try on 60 minutes after cutting a brilliant line and going underneath the posts. Vasey duly converted.
Roberts completed his hat-trick after a fine break and he powered over in the corner but Caldy looked like they were going to miss out until Roberts fed Dickinson who sprinted the length of the field, just pipping the chasing wing and scored in the corner. Vasey landed another kick from the touchline.
CALDY go to Stockport in National League Two North this Saturday (2pm) and they face the same opposition in their next home game in the Cheshire Cup on December 29.
