Moor slip up again

DEWSBURY Moor Maroons put up a fight against Crosfields but the National Conference League Division Three leaders remain unbeaten this term following a 34-16 win over the Carr Lane outfit.

The league’s in-form side had to work for the win and come from 14-0 to clinch the two points.

Jordan Foster opened the scoring for Moor on 12 minutes for a try which Cain Crotty converted. Brad Foster booted two penalties to extend the Maroons’ advantage.

The home side finally got their act together early in the second half, however, with a try from Billy Sheen four minutes in. Man of the match Ian Boden added another five minutes later and with two Jack Reid goals it was a two-point ball game.

Foster landed a penalty for Moor but it wasn’t going to be enough against a side with by far the best attack in the division.

Matt Mahoney, Sheen, Matt Barber and Reid all scored tries for the leaders. The defeat leaves Moor languishing in seventh place.

Moor now prepare to welcome Castleford Panthers to Carr Lane tomorrow (Sat, June 11, 2.30pm).
