Scunthorpe 3rd team made it 8 wins out of their last 9 games but were made to work hard for the points by a useful Moortown side who are clearly stronger than their league position suggests

The greens got off to a flying start scoring two converted tries in the opening 10 minutes to take a 14 point lead. Firstly Gav Hale powered through from close range to score under the posts, shortly followed by a weaving run from Ben Sass to go over for the second. Ian Lee added the extras on both occasions.

Moortown then scored a try of their own following good work from their forwards but were unable to convert leaving the score at 5-14.

After being made to work hard for possession the greens soon registered their next score. A long clearance kick saw the Moortown fullback fumble his chance to clear his lines allowing Lee Colcome to collect the ball and score after excellent pressure. Lee again added the extras regaining the points advantage for the greens.

Moortown had the final say of the first half, this time their backs making a numerical advantage out wide count to go over in the corner. The conversion was successful taking the half time score to 12-21 in Scunthorpes favour.

Half Time – Moortown 12 v 21 Scunthorpe

Scunthorpe opened the scoring in the second period thanks to another strong finish from Gav Hale and conversion from Lee but Moortown hit back with two scores to give them every chance to go on and win the game with the score now at 22-28.

Moortown looked the stronger side in the final quarter as the greens struggled to maintain possession. The greens were also reduced to 10 men and a nasty knock to the head saw Drewry play the remainder in a daze.

However the greens tightened up in the final 10 minutes and Ian Lee scored in the dying stages to close the game out. Drewry broke from the base of a scrum and off loaded to Lee who spun out of a tackle to crash over the line.

Full Time – Moortown 22 v 33 Scunthorpe

Man of the match went to Chris Redmile for an energetic display full of solid defending. The kind of work that often goes unnoticed!
