Moorlands improved in the second half and were soon level with Jack Wood grabbing his second.But with Ruskingtion wining the midfield battle and the Lions strikers geting the better of the back four the were soon back in front making it 4-3. Good work from Wood down right put a cross for Lewis Clucas level the game at 4-4.
Once again Ruskington hit back and were causing all sorts of problems for the back four and were soon 5-4 up.
More drama was to follow in the last 3 minutes when confusion the in the Ruskington defence allowed the impressive Wood storm through and snatch what seemed a last minute equalizer but with time ticking away Wood scored his fourth and the winner with a delightful lob to make it 6-5. Ruskington still had time to search from a equalizer and it took some crunching tackles from Matthew Schofield,who impressed at left back, to make sure the points went back up the A15.
The relief was felt all round when the final whistle went and both teams played there part in a match which was a credit to the Division.
Matthew Schofield was named man of the match but a special mention for the impressive Jack Wood.
