WITH things very tight at the foot of South Lancs-Cheshire Three table, both teams were up for this vital relegation tussle.
Moore scored the last 20 points of the match for a comeback win.
The hosts exerted the early pressure - fine, flowing passing in their backs ensuring Moore had to be in good tackling form.
Marple kicked themselves into the lead with a penalty goal but Moore began to win more balls through the hard work of Hallsworth and MoM Christie in turning over possession across the park.
However, countless handling errors in the backs saw several nailed-on chances spurned.
Moore were to regret the missed opportunities as another offside decision against them saw the visitors extend their lead to six points.
But the visitors knew this game was there for the taking and good forward play saw Marple concede a penalty with which Bradbury, who has been in excellent form with the boot, duly obliged.
Moore found themselves camped in the opposition's 22, driving mauls, taking the ball in, and rucking well.
The home side did well to initially hold out under such sustained pressure.
Several good phases of play followed before Marple's right wing found himself crossing in the corner.
The conversion made it 13-3. Moore, realising they were in danger of gifting the game to the home side, redoubled their efforts and saw off the half with two more penalties.
The second half got under way with the visitors again on the offensive.
With the backs holding on to more of the ball it was only a matter of time before they scored.
Good mauling and rucking from the pack saw several penalties conceded by Marple.
From a five-metre scrum, Hallsworth picked up from No8 to cross the line only to be wrongly denied by the referee. Marple were repeatedly infringing at the breakdown and lucky not to have a player binned.
Another penalty eight yards out saw scrum-half Griffiths feed prop Ferguson who powered over to take the lead. Bradbury converted to make it 13-16.
Some strange refereeing allowed Marple back into the game late on but Moore kept them out.
Bradbury intercepted to run the length of the pitch for a try he converted himself.
