Slow start - right result!

Houghton visit Broadway West for the first time.

After a wet week the sun was shining for the first visit of Houghton, who were promoted to D&N2 last year, to Broadway West. The pitch looked in prime condition, so everything pointed to a fine rugby feast!
Gosforth kicked off and immediately regained possession, which gave the crowd a false sense of security as Houghton were to stroke over an early penalty through David Bains. Things were to get even more tough for Gosforth, as a good overlap by the visitors was to see winger, Ben King, score wide out for an unconverted try to leave the score on ten minutes at 0-8. This was to be reduced on twenty minutes when home centre, Adam McGarry, finished off a promising attack with a powerful run to the line for an unconverted try (5-8). The same player was to make an equally powerful run five minutes later to leave the hosts in an attacking position in the left-hand corner, from whence No 8, Andy Black, was to cross for a second unconverted try (10-8). Gos were to extend their lead four minutes later, this time through flanker, Marc Burton, who scored from a similar position. Andy Black was successful with the conversion (17-8). Play continued in a similar fashion until just before half-time, when, on thirty-seven minutes, Andy Black was to pile over for his second of the afternoon, but he missed with the conversion from the bonus point fourth try, to leave the score at half-time at 22-8 to Gosforth.
The second half started very positively for Gosforth, when, in the very first minute, a fly-hack ahead was to ricochet off the attacking, Matty Marshall, to fall into the grateful arms of lock, Kieron Locke, who scored close in. The attempted conversion by replacement, Dan Tucker, (I have won the Hilton Kicking Competition , you know!) fell wide to leave the score at 27-8. To be fair, not much else happened during the second half, except for a try on sixty-two minutes by visitors' Ryan Graham, converted by David Bains (27-15). As the sun sank and the light faded, Gosforth were to finish the game off with a last minute try by winger, Joe Morris, under the posts, for skipper, Ollie Stephenson, to dropkick the conversion. The final score was 34-15 to Gosforth. Both sides had to make multiple personnel changes throughout the game, which obviously disrupted the play!! Next week Gosforth are away to our old adversaries, Winlaton Vulcans - KO 2.15pm.
