Bury opened the scoring through forward Jordan Miller after five minutes of this North Lancs Two fixture, and tries then flowed at periodic five minute intervals for the rest of the period.
Prop forward Andy Townsend put Bury further ahead, followed by Matt Hindley with the first of his two tries.
Tom Jones added to the score while skipper Jon Allen went over for the first of his four tries in the 30th minute.
Stand-off Lawrence Shedwick converted three of the first half tries as Bury rounded off the first period with Chris Potts, Hindley and Allen all scoring tries to lead 46-0.
In the second half, Bury carried on where they had left off. Leo Freschini opened the scoring with the first of his two tries followed by scrum half Karl Simpson in the 16th minute.
James Swinburn and brother Stuart added further tries before Allen scored the third of his efforts. Bury rounded off the last 12 minutes of play with four tries, Freschini scoring his second, Allen his fourth, Potts his second and Stuart Swinburn his second.
This Saturday Bury entertain Newton-le-Willows at the Radcliffe Road ground, looking to avenge the pre-Christmas defeat, kick off 2.15pm.
