Dewsbury duo still searching for points

THORNHILL TROJANS remain winless and rock bottom of the Pennine League Premier Division following a crushing 540 defeat at the hands of BARLA National Cup holders Queens.

The Leeds club showed no mercy from the outset, forcing referee Carl Nagy to bring matters to a premature end following 71 minutes of play, which saw the hosts cross for 10 tries.

Queens, who played the first nine minutes of the second period without sinbinned fullback Aaron Henry, were 34 points to the good at half time and leading the way for them was Anthony Frater, who touched down on five occasions.

Other tries came courtesy of Henry (2), Omar Alrawi, Stuart Young and Matthew Stockdale.

Jake Wilson impressed for the Trojans, who on 39 minutes were reduced to 12 men after the sinbinning of Joe Naidole.

Meanwhile, a hardfought affair resulted in a thirdstraight defeat for Premier Division newboys DEWSBURY MOOR who were edged by West Yorkshire rivals Queensbury.

Trailing 1612 at the interval, Moor were within reach before falling behind significantly on the scoreboard, which left them chasing the game late on.

Andy Robinson converted an early Dean Arundel touchdown to put Moor ahead, initially, before the hosts hit back with three scores in quick succession.

A late firsthalf score have the Dewsbury side hope, but a flurry of tries changed all that early in the second half.

Moor responded with a late double courtesy of James Delaney and Arundel, Robinson improving both from the kicking tee to no avail.
