KEIGHLEY Albion's Under 15s were downed 22-12 at Fryston Warriors.

The Warriors left Albion shell shocked in the first 10 minutes as they scored two quick fire tries and went into the break 10 points to the good.

The Fryston scoring continued in the second half when a grubber kick into the in goal was not fielded by Albion, allowing the opposing centre to touch down and increase his side's lead.

The visitors hit back when a chip over was kicked on by winger James Kitson. The bouncing ball set up kindly for him to go on to sprint past the chasing hosts defenders and go over under the posts for a great individual try.

With Fryston now losing possession early in their sets, Albion scooted away to break through and score their second converted try.

The away side were nearly in again before a great cover tackle from Fryston prevented Olly Moran getting the touchdown in the left corner to level the game.

However, any hopes of a comeback were finally dashed in the final minutes of the game as the home side capitalised on Albion giving up possession in their own half and worked their way over on the right flank to seal the victory.

Despite the endeavours from Albion, too many mistakes made it harder for them than it should have been and allowed the Warriors good field position to take their chances when they came.

With Kippax at home next week in the league, Albion have the opportunity to adjust the side and return to a more expansive game as they look to return to winning ways.

It was better news for the U14 Blacks though as they recorded a tight 26-22 win at Normanton Knights.

The game started at a fast pace with the Knights racing to a 10 point lead in the first five minutes.

Albion bounced back with two tries of their own to level the scores.

A try a piece from each team meant that going into the break it was still all to play for.

However, in the second period it was all Albion as they touched down twice, the latter being from a 80 metre run.

The hosts added a consolation try late on but it was Keighley who enjoyed taking the spoils home.

The U13s suffered a 36-18 defeat to North Leeds Leopards. Special mentions must go out to Hamza Butt and debutants Archie Rigg and Charlie Batch.

Elsewhere, the Albion Primary teams travelled to West Craven, with 26 players across the U7s and U8s. The future of rugby league in Keighley looks very bright.

The U8s met West Craven and Silsden in a double header. 

Otis Waite picked up the opposition man-of-the-match for his unbelievable try’s, while Henry Dibbin was awarded Albion's for another strong performance, particularly in defence with his notorious bone-crunching tackles.

Mentions also for George Simpson and Cody Ackroyd who both scored some unbelievable tries with their footwork and speed.

Newcomer Jacob Davis, who despite his diminutive stature, has proven a real threat in attack with his agility. He also picked up his first try for the side.

The U7s were dominant in their game against West Craven.

The work from pre-season training really showed, as the team scored many of their tries through offloading - with Logan Spencer and Theo Miller picking up the most with 4 offloads each.

Massive improvements on defence were also on show, with some big hits across the team. George Watson and Joshua Price completing 23 and 22 tackles respectively.

Jaden Lee, a try scoring machine picked up the opposition man-of-the-match, while Jacob Kershaw was selected as Albion's after a strong all round performance. 

Special mentions also to Lucas Haddington, Oscar Drake and Jacob Dunhill who all played their first games for the age group. Haddington collected a man-of-the-match award.
