The sun shines on Sunderland!

Gos are overpowered.

On an unusually sunny day at Ashbrooke a much changed Gosforth side took on the team immediately above them in D&N2. After only one minute the hosts showed their intentions by running straight and hard through some rather femmer tackles to take a five point lead. Ten minutes later a lost line-out saw Gosforth going 12-0 down with a Sunderland try under the posts. A couple of minutes later the hosts were to score a third try, which was again converted (19-0). Gosforth were to suffer a further blow when skipper, Andy Black, was to leave the field with a shoulder injury, being replaced by debutant, Ryan Bush. Shortly after, fly-half, Mark Anderson, was to get Gos on the scoreboard when he sent over a 40 metres penalty (19-3). Despite a more positive approach, Gos were to go further behind following a yellow card for scrum-half, William Magowan. Sunderland took full advantage of their numerical advantage by scoring two pushover tries (one converted) before half-time to lead 31-3 at the break.
As the second half started Gos faced an uphill battle to get back into the game. Their task was worsened in the first ten minutes, as Sunderland were to breach some flimsy defence to score two more converted tries (45-3). However, the visitors showed a renewed spirit, as pressure on the home line brought some reward with a try from close-in by flanker, Marc Burton. Ando's conversion made the score 45-10 on 52 minutes. A long clearance kick by the latter was fielded by Sunderland's fullback in his own 22 and he ran almost the length of the field to score in the corner on 60 minutes (50-10). There was still time for two more home tries against tiring opposition to leave the final score 62-10. A disappointing afternoon by a weakened Gos side! Next weekend sees us on the road yet again with a journey to Hartlepool, when we try to complete the twice postponed fixture. Hopefully an end to half-term week may just see a few returnees!!
