Yarnbury 0 - Huddersfield YMCA 3 -Match Abandoned -Yorkshire 2 League

After finally getting a game on for the home club after seven saturdays off due to bad weather and Christmas the league leaders were in town for a challenging game at Brownberrie Lane Horsforth.

The match lasted 12 minutes before the referee from East Yorkshire could not continue officiating and the game was abandoned to replylater in the season.

Yarnbury are now booked up with the backlog and maybe this game could take place early May with dispensation from The RFU or Yorkshire Society if more delays are forthcoming in the winter months.

Keighley 2nd XV 15 3 Yarnbury Hornets

After the prolonged Christmas break due to the recent adverse weather conditions the Hornets first game since November 20th was at Keighley. Having narrowly beaten them at home earlier in the season this was always going to be a tight affair. The Hornets handed debuts to Guy Hawkridge at prop and Suanu Lebari on the bench. Experienced campaigners Simon Threlfall and Andy Cowley also returned to the ranks.

In rain and windy conditions Yarnbury sustained determined Keighley pressure in the first 20 minutes despite going backwards in the scrum and managed to slot over a penalty with a rare incursion into the Keighley 22 metre area from stand off Daniel Pound

The lead was to be very short lived. The Yarnbury lineout was wayward and Keighley took possession working their way deep into Yarnbury territory. The try was eventually scored from a close range lineout following a Keighley penalty kick to touch making the score 5-3.

The Hornets defence held up to the 37th minute when in possession they conspired to put the ball to ground on their own tryline allowing a Keighley man to dive on the loose ball for a try.

The half time whistle blew with the score at 10-3 to Keighley. Their lead could have, and maybe should have been more, taking into account the two missed conversions, two missed penalties and a further two dropped balls when over the try line, the Hornets were extremely fortunate to still be only one score behind.

In the second half with the clock running down Keighley stretched their lead to 15-3 following a rehearsed short lineout move close to the Yarnbury line and this is the way it would stay until the end. Full Time 15-3.

Hemsworth A 15 Yarnbury 3rds 15

3rd team report if not too late:-

Yarnbury took a strong team to Hemsworth to face a club who gahd a score to settle after Yarnbury's early season romp. This lead to an exciting game played in good sprirts. Hemsworth took the lead through a bit of luck after a suggested knock on in the line. They used their forward power to drive forward and barge over the line. The first high ended on a high when captain Jason Hall kicked long at the last play. The ball bounced nicely for strong running winger Tom Hunter who scored under the posts. Debutant Carl Lofty added the conversion to make the score 7-5 to Yarnbury.

The second half saw Yarnbury defend mightily to hold out the strong Hemsworth pack who pushed Yarnbury off the ball in a scrum to score their secnd try. Luck played a part in Hemsworth's third try as they gathered a loose ball to score. this was a hard game and was enjoyed by all after the long lay off.
