Emley Moor u15s 20

Keighley Albion u15s 24

KEIGHLEY Albion staged a superb fightback to take the spoils against a good Emley Moor side, who will give many teams in Division Three a tough game.

King of the poor starts, failing to deal with the kick-off led to the first points, then Albion kicked off to the host's best player, who proceeded to round some weak tackles, to put the hosts in front.

Finally settling, Albion strung some phases to gather and when Evan Jones went close, Jacob Terry powered over from close range.

Albion then drew level, when a delightful ball from Harrison Clamp saw Mason Myers Roberts score his first try for the club.

Needing to complete, Albion again failed to deal with the kick-off and the host's marauding second rower gave Emley the lead at the break.

However knowing they were the better side, Albion got stuck in from the off and led by Ben McParland's bone-crunching defence, they took a stranglehold with Clamp feeding Myers Robert's for his double. Then Billy Lee got the end of some good play to race over.

Albion, in total control, gave the hosts a way back in with needless penalties and basic errors, with the pressure finally leading to a score which was converted to the hosts back in front.

Albion had plenty of time and after letting the ball go dead, Lee took the ball off a quick tap 20, and rounded the retreating line before sprinting down the touchline giving Albion the lead.

Despite a few hairy moments, Albion held out to secure the win. In a superb team effort, McParland, Myers Roberts and Lee were picked out by their peers for the performances.
