Leaders Camp Hill cut down Oak

Solihull Editorial 20th Nov, 2019   0

TABLE-TOPPING Camp Hill saw off local rivals Moseley Oak 31-17 to stay perched at the summit of Midlands Two West (North).

Playing at Haslucks Green Road as opposed to a waterlogged Billesley Common, the hosts took the game to Moseley but fell behind on 15 minutes to a converted score.

A second try then followed for the visitors, though the conversion was this time missed.

Will Wallwork took Camp Hill to within a metre of the try line, allowing Adam Pinfield to push his way over the line.

Ian Briggs added the conversion to close the gap and continue forward momentum from the hosts, which, after several missed attempts, resulted in Steven Leach’s penalty try that put the home side in front.

Instead of building on their lead, Camp Hill went behind to a third Moseley try following a fine solo run before half time.

Camp Hill were made to wait to register again on the scoreline, but when they did from Leach’s converted try, they didn’t look back.

Leading 21-17, Briggs extended the lead with a penalty, before dummying a pass to break through to the line and go under the posts, converting his own score to wrap up the victory.

Next up for Camp Hill is a trip to Newcastle (Staffs), while Moseley Oak visit Crewe & Nantwich on Saturday (both 2.15pm).
