Maroons bag impressive away victory

DEWSBURY MOOR bounced back from an opening day defeat to roll over a lacklustre Castleford Panthers side 32-4 on the road in National Conference League Division Three.

It was Panthers’ first game back in the Conference and it ended badly as their only points came from a Reece Carr try.

The touchdown came just shy of the half hour mark but by then the hosts were already 10-0 in arrears.

Jacob Flathers opened the scoring for Moor with a 14th-minute effort before he landed the conversion to a James Catherley try seven minutes later.

It remained 10-4 until three minutes before the interval when Moor increased their lead with a George Croisdale try.

It was one-way traffic in the second period as man of the match Bartley O’Brien added a try five minutes after the restart.

Flathers added the conversion but was unable to land the goal to his own try seven minutes later.

Jordan Foster then sealed the win with a try 15 minutes from time.

The victory moves the Maroons up to sixth and their next test is at home to Gateshead Storm on Saturday April 2.
