Keighley Albion 16

Queensbury 32

KEIGHLEY Albion crashed to defeat Queensbury, who had come down from the Premier League, in this Yorkshire League Division One clash.

From the start it all went wrong for Albion, as they did not not collect the kick off, giving the ball straight back to Queensbury, who scored.

From the restart Queensbury were well drilled running the ball hard at the Albion defence.

Albion we shell shocked and poor tackling let Queensbury in again for two more tries.

Albion need to stop the momentum and after 20 minutes, with Queensbury back on the scoreboard, changes had to be made. Mark Smith, James Feather and Connor Murphy were brought on and something seemed to click.

With Albion actually seeing the ball now and halting the Queensbury attack they made their way upfield.

Feather saw an opening from acting half and drew the full back to put Morgan Robinson in for Albion’s first try of Friday night's clash. Kris Gott converting.

But as Albion have done in all three games this season, they started the second half poorly and let Queensbury in to score straight away.

Feather slipped the ball short to Chapman, who dived low to score net to the post. Gott added the extras.

At this point Albion have gained in confidence and were pinning Queensbury back in their own half.

A great cross-field kick saw Kieron Blakeley dive over the try-line, but he referee gave a knock-on.

A few silly penalties saw Queensbury in a position where they took the two points.

Albion had the last say of the day when Alex Young raced in at the corner for a try to make it 16-32.

Albion host Hunslet Parkside on Saturday.
