Old Crossleyans 19-22 Halifax Dukes

Halifax Dukes claim bragging rights with narrow win

Halifax Dukes left it late before clinching victory over local rivals Old Crossleyans.

In an enthralling encounter, the Dukes had led for a large percentage of the game only for Crocs to grab the lead with just minutes remaining.

The Dukes, though, kept their cool to regroup and hit straight back to clinch the well-deserved victory.

Skipper Matt Tallis and mark ball had both crossed for tries, while Aaron Horner slotted over two coversions and a penalty.

However the home side looked to have snatched victory in the dying minutes when they scored to take a 19-17 lead.

But Halifax refused to give up and they were rightly rewarded with a match-winning try from Iain Morris.
