Mediocre Maroons stuck in mid-table

EASTMOOR DRAGONS leapfrogged their mid-table rivals Dewsbury Moor to sixth in National Conference League Division Three after beating the Maroons 22-16 at Carr Lane.

It was a hard-fought encounter which the Dragons edged late on thanks to an Ashley Allman try.

Moor led 12-6 at the break. Two tries in as many minutes from Scott Sheard and George Croisdale, plus conversions by Brad Foster, put them in the ascendancy .

But the Dragons hit back just after the midway point of the first half with a Mulcahy converted effort.

On 52 minutes, a Joe Burns try and Mulcahy conversion brought the visitors level before Jamie Creed went in 10 minutes later.

A James Eatherley try brought Moor back to within two points before the late Allman effort secured the points.

The Maroons now sit seventh in Division Three but are only two points off third in a tightly-contested league.

The Heckmondwike Road outfit will travel to league leaders Crosfields for their next outing on Saturday June 4 (2.30pm).
