Crosfields proving the stronger after a monster shot by Taylor Boyne
forces a loose ball which is caught by Jack Rylatt. The ball shipped on swiftly and Taylor Boyne
spots the gap in the line and runs over to get a try. Successful conversion by Lewis
Perin makes the score 6-0.
Pressure kept up with strong drives eating up the pitch back to the line. Ryan Ellison
barges through a gap in the line and found the try line to help Crosfields with there early lead. Successful conversion by Lewis
Perin makes the score 12-0.

took it with a scooting run and scored again. Unsuccessful conversion makes the score 16-0.
Rochdale restart with the kick not going 10 metres so Crosfields where given a penalty. A neat short pass from Taylor Boyne
to unstoppable Tom Millington
who gets under the sticks. Successful conversion by Lewis

The backs now wanting to get in on the act, passes across the field and Callum Teeling
gets over with a try. Unsuccessful conversion 30-0.
