On a very cold and misty morning, The Jaguars put in another much improved display. The first half saw resilient defending displays form Archie B, Archie G, Harry and particularly Bradley. Jay, Matthew and Luke all had penetrating runs which led to long periods of Ossett pressure and corner after corner. After goals from Jay and Luke, The Jaguars felt hard done to when, against the run of play and 2 goals on the break, Rastrick had the half time lead at 4 – 2.

The second half began with Ossett quickly turning the screw and it wasn’t long before they got a goal back when Jay fired home. Then the opposition started to take the initiative and pile on the pressure. Was it not for stout defensive work from Archie G, Alex and James and numerous good stops from Jamie in the net that the home team would have surely extended their lead. Town were still having their attacking chances and one great passage of play led to a super through ball from Archie B which came to Luke who found Harry who was unfortunately unable to get any power on his shot. Bradley was playing a holding role in front of the back four and controlled the midfield. Samee also stood out in his left wing role.

Eventually justice was done when Matthew freed Luke who cracked in a smasher of a shot to make the score level at 4 – 4. The score remained even and The Jaguars thoroughly desired at least a draw. At the final whistle the man of the match was awarded to Archie B and Bradley.
