Poor Moor disappoint at Waterhead

IN a battle at the wrong end of the National Conference League Division Three table it was Waterhead Warriors who took the spoils against Dewsbury Moor in running out 30-14 winners. 

It took 19 minutes for the deadlock to be broken and it went the way of the hosts with a Nathan Jewitt try and Jack Pemberton goal.

Moor hit back with tries from James Delaney and Brad Samme plus two Brad Foster goals before a Peter Davies try and Pemberton goal levelled matters at the break at 12-12.

Davies then grabbed his second try four minutes after the restart before Waterhead added further pressure.

Two tries in three minutes from Ciaron Dean helped the home side into a 30-12 lead.

Moor had the final word when Jordan Foster went in on 67 minutes.

Following the exit of Castleford Panthers from Division Three, Moor’s defeat to Waterhead leaves them sitting third-bottom as their hopes of a play-off spot fade quickly in 2016.

The Maroons’ next outing is at home to Crosfields on Saturday September 3 (2.30pm).
