Elks' hopes suffer a blow
ILKESTON'S Midlands One East promotion hopes were dealt a blow as they slipped to defeat at Market Rasen.
The Elks left Lincolnshire empty-handed and other results saw them drop to fifth in the table.
The early signs were promising as Jono Falls and Greg Taylor ran in first-half tries, converted by Joel Haigh – but the sides were level at 14-14 going into the break.
The teams exchanged penalties after the interval and it was Market Rasen who won it courtesy of two more tries.

"We started well and scored two really good tries," said Elks coach David Jackson.
"But after that, we didn't really play any rugby and we defended very poorly, which was disappointing.
"They had a huge desire to win and that was the difference in the end. They looked like they wanted it more than we did.
"Fair play to them, they scored four tries but it wasn't through dazzling rugby, just good old-fashioned guts and determination – and, unfortunately, we weren't able to stop them."
