Maroons throw away commanding lead

DEWSBURY MOOR threw away a comfortable 16-point lead to lose 34-20 away at Eastmoor Dragons in National Conference League Division Three.

A James Eatherley converted try plus two more conversions to tries for Jack Riding and Tom Kaye gave Moor their lead.

The Dragons’ only first half points came from a Danny Johnson try and Ady Mulcahy conversion.

A Jamie Creed try for Eastmoor at the start of the second period was matched by another from Kaye.

The final quarter belonged to the home side as they ran in four more tries with man-of-the-match Mulcahy adding all four conversions.

Nathan McVitte, Mulcahy, Greg Wilby and Michael Willams all crossed the whitewash.

Moor’s James Delaney was sin-binned for a spear tackle.

The Maroons are sixth in Division Three having missed the chance to draw level on points with the Dragons had they won the encounter.

Moor hope to claw back points against Waterhead Warriors tomorrow (Sat Aug 13, 2.30pm).
