Otley 32, Caldy 20
Otley laid the platform for their fifth SSE National League Two North victory in six attempts this season by establishing a 25-6 half-time advantage.
Confident and stylish play was Otley's hallmark and, despite losing full back Ben Fairclough to the sin-bin, they extended that lead to 32-6 by the 61st minute.
Then, after replacement back-row Robert Afoa-Peterson had been shown a yellow card, they were subjected to something of a pounding but they had the resilience to concede no more than a couple of tries, sending close rivals Caldy home pointless.
Pressed back into their 22 from the kick-off, the visiting backs were caught offside, fly half Ben Cooper kicking the fourth-minute penalty, only for his opposite number Richard Vasey to level four minutes later.
Varying their game, a drive from a line-out having failed, Otley went again from 18 metres, flanker Johnathan Matthews grounding.
Vasey was on target with a second penalty as Caldy came to life but a run from Otley flanker Dan Temm broke their defence, and James Twomey stepped in at the corner, Cooper landing a fine conversion.
Otley came out for the second half full of running, Twomey just failing to hang on to an interception.
Despite being a man down, Otley landed a penalty from Cooper, followed by Temm going in at the posts, and livewire prop Toby Williams crowned a fine display to power over, both tries being converted by Cooper.
They were then called upon to display their defensive prowess and, in a pulsating final quarter, they were able to restrict Caldy to converted tries from replacement scrum half Gavin Roberts and No 8 Stuart Cross.
