Hard to watch

Weav's hat-trick in vain

Back at Broadway West, we faced new opponents in Sedgefield. Our paths haven't crossed for quite a while. Kieron Locke was appearing in his 100th 1st XV game - congrats on joining the Centurions!! Another of that illustrious group, BJ Neill, was also back to help us out with our front-row problems.
On a cloudy,damp,windy afternoon, visitors Sedgefield kicked off. It took 8 minutes for Gos to take the lead with a mighty penalty from 50+ metres by Mat Struthers. On 13 minutes, following a telling break by skipper, Ollie Stephenson, centre, James Weaver, was to receive another telling pass from Matty Marshall to cross halfway out. Again Maty Struthers was successful with the conversion to give Gos a 10-0 lead. On 21 minutes this score was repeated by James Weaver after an astute grubber kick by Struthers, who missed this conversion. No more scores accrued despite a few good opportunities to the hosts, leaving the score at 15-0 at half-time. However, on the stroke of the whistle, home fly-half, Matthew Marshall, was dismissed from the field by the referee for an alleged punch to the face.
Starting the second-half with 14 men and facing a strong crosswind, Gos were going to have to work hard to hold on to the lead! Sedgefield quickly summed up the situation and adopted the right tactics in the circumstances by making sure they gained field position before adding the finishing touches by scoring on 55, 62 and 69 minutes through number eight, Phil Dawson, on each occasion. Two of these scores were converted by scrum-half, Mark Baldwin, pulling the visitors back to within one point. James Weaver, had in the meanwhile, chipped his way over for his hat-trick. Unfortunately, kicker Struthers had already left the field with a hamstring strain early on in the half, so the conversion was missed to leave the score at 20-19. There was certainly a feeling of the inevitable amongst the home supporters, whose worst fears were realised, when an injury time penalty was awarded to Sedgefield. Baldwin was to convert, giving the visitors an unexpected "on the road" win by 20-22.
Next weekend gives us a chance to redeem ourselves at home again to Darlington - KO is 3pm.
