S/F Challenge Cup
A tale of two halves
Moor won the battle to reach the final of the Challenge Cup
Dewsbury Moor U14s gave up their home advantage and travelled to Heworth for the semi final of the Challenge Cup on Friday night. Both teams contributed to an entertaining game and their was some excellent rugby played by both sides. Heworth scored first outwide but missed the conversion. Jacob Crosswell replied and Aiden Ineson converted from the touchline. Good forward play from Daniel White and Connor Redgwick laid the platform and hooker Jordan McNally directed play. It was a cut out ball from McNally which sent Harry Woollard in for Moor's second try but Ineson missed the conversion. Jo Longstaff had a good game in the centre position and Cameron Adleigh at half back. There was some good defence on show by Crosswell, Hamzah Riaz, Patrick Diskin, Adleigh and Longstaff and Crosswell posted his second just before half time which meant Moor led 4-16 at half time. Moor started the second half well when they created the overlap for winger Ben Kershaw to go in in the corner, conversion missed. Heworth then mounted a great comeback when their forwards got on a roll and they posted two tries but both conversions were missed. Moor dug deep and Connor Gavaghan, Conor Harrison and MOM Jordan McNally got Moor back into the right half of the field for Crosswell to post his hatrick try but again the conversion was missed. Heworth built the pressure again scoring twice to set up a tense last minute but Moor showed that winning spirit and when Ineson kicked the ball out into touch, their was no time left on the clock to form the scrum. Congratulations have to go to Heworth as they played some excellent rugby in the second half but the win sees Moor moved into the final of the Challenge Cup on Sunday 17th June at Featherstone Rovers ground.
