Back on the winning road

Try fest

Gosforth 72 v 20 South Shields Weather: Cool, Breezy and Sunshine report by: Malcolm Stokoe
It was a case of back at Broadway, back on the winning trail today. Despite the horrendous gales of mid-week, which caused some damage ( mainly the disappearance of the scoreboard and fence), the game was to take place in quite benign conditions. Our latest game was against South Shields, against whom we have played only once before in the League several years ago.
A usually multi-changed Gos (containing debutants Eliot Everton and Adam Wasylkiw) kicked off into quite a strong breeze and in the seventh minute winger, Jack Levinson, finished off a flowing move with a strong run to the corner, giving Gos an early 5-0 lead. Then followed quite a procession of tries by the hosts with Darren Kelly (12 mins); skipper Ollie Stephenson (13); Marc Burton(17); James Weaver (21) and, again, Ollie Stephenson (23) crossing - all converted by Mark Anderson to leave the score at 40-0 after only 23 minutes. Despite this onslaught, South Shields were to fight back with a try of their own through prop, Kristian Simonside, on 32 mins and a penalty by Stephen Waddle on 38 mins. This left the half-time score at 40-8 to Gosforth.
With the wind at their backs Gos kicked off, but were soon to be handicapped with a yellow card for not retiring "10" by No 8, Adam Barrass. Shields were to capitalise on this with another try by centre, Daniel Whitcham, to bring the score back to 40-13. This seemed to stir Gos back into action with three unconverted tries by Tom Jones (13 mins); Chris Morris ( 18) and Tom Jones again (20) to bring up the 50 for the hosts. Two tries followed for Adam Barrass (23 and 33 mins) - the first converted by Mark Anderson - and interspersed by another Shields try by Jay Oxley , converted by Stephen Waddle . This left the score at 67-20 with seven minutes to go - just enough time for Darren Kelly to score his second with an unconverted try in the corner, leaving the final score at 72-20.
Thanks go to referee, Tom Grayson, for controlling the game well in what is only his second season of adult refereeing.
Next week sees us going up to Ashington to meet a team, who will definitely be up for the game against their old rivals!1
