MOLDGREEN’S Under 14 side have progressed to the final of the Yorkshire Junior League’s Continuation Cup after a 46-6 demolition of Shaw Cross.
Moldgreen dominated from the start and they were 18-6 ahead by half-time with two tries from Isaac Griffiths, and a try each for Liam Harriet and Connor Smith and a Joe Dickenson goal.
Keenan Simpson and Jordi Simpson were troubling Shaw Cross with their strong running, while Keiron Reilly’s kicking and the tackling of John Coletta, Miles Dickenson and Marcus DeRose was making life difficult for the home side.
The second half continued in the same style with an interception try from Ben Hooper which Dickenson converted.
Further tries from Jordan Gill-Smith, Leon Donaldson and a Smith double sealed Moldgreen’s victory.
They will face Doncaster Toll Bar in the final who beat Siddal 38-34 in the other semi-final.
In a tight encounter Moldgreen’s Under 13 side grabbed a 14-10 Yorkshire Junior League Division II victory at Milford Marlins in a game played on an artificial pitch.
Jack Gill scored a hat trick of tries to help Moldgreen claim victory in a close-run contest.
In a tight first half, Gill crossed the line twice, with Ethan converting the second.
Try-saving tackles from James Banks and Marcus Wade ensured Moldgreen went into half time with the advantage.
The second half began in a lively fashion and some excellent drives from Sam Pegg put the away side high up the field.
Connor Paga, Austin Briggs and James Addy all threatened to add further scores, but it was Gill who again crossed for the try.
Moldgreen’s newly-formed open age summer side triumphed 66-6 over the Heavy Donkeys in Entry league West of the RFL’s Summer League.
They are now gearing up for next Saturday’s trip to Elland, which is expected to prove a far tougher challenge.
But with training going well at the DRAM Centre – every Thursday (7-9pm) and Saturday (from 10.30am) – hopes are high Moldgreen can secure win No2 under head coach and former Giants favourite Paul Reilly.
Also playing in the summer competition are Slaithwaite Saracens, who today travel to Dewsbury Celtic in Yorkshire Men’s League Group VI.
All of the club’s focus is now on the summer season, with the winter commitments having ended with last week’s 44-6 Pennine League Premier Division defeat at Queen’s.
As the match should have been played a month ago, it means the Saracens had to field a patched-up side as several key players had other commitments.
The home side scored at will in the first-half and had the game won at the break as they led 34-0.
From the re-start the Saracens worked the ball out wide for Scott Colley to go over, and David Holmes added the goal.
After that they restricted the home time to just two more tries.
