Guiseley Rangers  U13s 36 v Stanley Rangers U13s 4

Saturday 9th October saw us travel to top of the league Guiseley Rangers.

Stanley started off strong, but were soon under pressure from a team that hadn't lost a game all season playing on a pitch that resembled Mount Everest rather than a rugby league pitch, but Rangers held strong, with brilliant defence to keep Guiseley out for three repeat sets and over 15 minutes before Guiseley broke through scoring in the corner. 4 points. Guiseley continued their barrage but with rangers Pilling on the pressure Guiseley started to falter with a few knock ons, loose carries and forward passes Stanley gained an advantage. Some good runs from Keaney, Fletcher, Buckley and Morley but after Rangers made a few mistakes, Guiseley were soon back on the attack and it wasn't long before they were on the score sheet again - 8 points. Rangers continued their uphill struggle and came close with runs from Kirk Leese and Talbot,  some good runs from both  centres and wingers. Guiseley continued  their pressure and  it wasn't  long before they scored again 6 more points and half time  14 points up. 

All was not lost and Rangers now had the advantage of playing down the hill, but Guiseley were not going to lie down and being at home  knew just how to capitalise. It wasn't  long before they had accumulated another 3 tries and two conversions to add another 16 points. Rangers continued  to battle it out with  some immense tackling  from Kirk, Keaney, Fletcher and Jatta, Rangers held strong until  they got pinned on their own line. We defended strong until Guiseley sneaked in at the corner on the fifth - another 6 points but Rangers didn't falter and continued with the pressure causing Guiseley to make some mistakes and finally regaining the ball. Some more good runs from Wain, Jatta and some brilliant  tackling from Speight and we were on their line. Some quick thinking  and getting  the ball out and keeping low and Kirk was over in the corner  - a consolation 4 points but well deserved.
