Skipton 62 - 5 Mosborough

Yorkshire Division 4

Skipton 62 : 5 Mosborough

by Simon Smith

Skipton extended their winning run to eleven games with a convincing ten try victory over South Yorkshire rivals Mosborough, leaving them in third place in Division 4 just two points behind second placed Wensleydale with two league fixtures remaining.

Skipton opened the scoring within five minutes of the kick-off. Following a crunching tackle by centre Jon Currie, winger Josh Smith gathered the ball and fed full-back Jake Duxbury who put Jamie Donnelly clear to go over for the opening points. Excellent handling put stand-off Liam Jordan clear in open play a few minutes later for the home side's second try, Duxbury adding the conversion.

The home side now had the bit between their teeth and began to rack up the score. Winger Jack Mcleod had an easy run in, with Duxbury again adding the conversion and Smith followed a few minutes later with try number four, gaining the bonus league point.

Good forward play by prop Chris Wright, second row Harry McEneaney and back row Luke Stockton put Jordan away and a fantastic looping pass put the ball down the back line with McLeod going over in the corner for his second try. Duxbury added the extra points. A penalty to Skipton for Mosborough not rolling away put the home down field and great line-out ball put No. 8 Ben Hall over for Skipton's sixth try. The conversion attempt hit the post and the sides turned round at 36 nil in Skipton's favour.

Skipton drove Mosborough off the ball at the first scrum of the second half and Stockton put Hall away but the pass went forward and the try was denied. Full-back Duxbury ran in a try of his own under the posts and added the extra points and replacement winger Hamish Munro secured the home side's eighth try after great back play. Duxbury brought the half-century up for the home side with the conversion.

Coach Dave Duxbury then made some changes to the Skipton forward line with the welcome return of Aaron Walker at second row, following a period of absence with a dislocated shoulder, and Daryl Swales at prop. The home side's forward dominance continued although the visitors did secure a consolation try, with the conversion attempt hitting the post. Hall scored try number nine for Skipton from a quickly taken tap penalty. Duxbury again added the extra points and Munro rounded off Skipton's afternoon with try number ten following a chip through by Jordan.
