Keighley Albion U18s 44 Queensbury U18s 16

KEIGHLEY Albion hosted Queensbury with both sides previously undefeated this season. Some fine individual performances ensured that the away side left Keighley with their proud record in tatters.

Queensbury opened the scoring though, as a pass out wide to their left winger saw him score in the corner.

However Albion settled, and with the ball moved wide from their scrum to centre Josh Slingsby, he broke the visitor’s defence to sprint away and score from within his own half.

Kieron Blakeley evaded a tackle to score and extend the home side's lead before full back Charlie Lowrie crossed for a third.

Albion's Finn Meegan was sin-binned for a high tackle and Queensbury were able to take advantage, with their second rower breaking through to score.

Albion regained control when Bobby Darbyshire attacked the Queensbury line at pace and powered through for a classy individual try. Henry MacNab added all the kicks to make it 24-10 to Albion at half-time.

After the break, scrum half Jacob Cox intercepted a pass on halfway to score before Josh Tenniswood was released down the wing for a try. Tenniswood added his second minutes later.

A late fracas saw Meegan and Queensbury’s Ben Ellis sent off, with the away side's hooker also dismissed for referee abuse. Queensbury added one final try, with the game finishing 44-16 to Albion.

Albion have now won six successive games, and will be looking to avenge their earlier cup defeat as they travel to Hull side Lambwath in the league next weekend.
