MATCH REPORT - 23 March 2019 written by Mal Bell

Houghton 26 – 45 Gosforth

A 2 o’clock kick off – to allow those, that wanted to, to get to St James’ Park to watch Newcastle and Sale – saw Gosforth kick off up the slope on a sunny but nippy Saturday afternoon. Houghton took the early possession and after only a couple of minutes, the home open side flanker forced his way under the posts to give his side a 7-0 lead. Gosforth took a little time to settle but a strong run from centre Adam McGarry set up a try for wing Owen Ramsey with Mark Anderson’s conversion equalising the scores. A similar run by McGarry on 14 minutes saw him dot down under the posts with Anderson’s kick giving Gosforth a 14-7 lead. Within minutes, McGarry and flanker Jack Davies combined to give Ramsey his second converted try.

As the game entered the second quarter, the home side produced another try through good hands and support to make it 14-21. McGarry then forced his way through the home defence to claim his second try and ensuring a 4-try bonus point, 14-26. Houghton refused to give up and their forwards exerted enough pressure on the Gosforth defence to produce a third converted try and reduce the deficit to 21-26. Gosforth hit straight back and centre, Andrew Camplejohn dummied his way through the home back line then fended a couple of tackles to touch down under the posts and make Anderson’s conversion easy, 21-33.

Right on half time, Gosforth fly half, Anderson kicked to touch under the impression that the referee had indicated half-time but he then decided 10 seconds were left. Houghton took the line out and a neat three quarters move with the full back making the extra man produced a try in the left corner to take the half time score to 26-33.

The defending on both sides improved in the second half and after the nine-try-fest of the first half, only 2 scores were added, both by the visitors. Halfway through the half, Gosforth sub, Alex Miller was yellow carded for a high tackle but despite being a man short, Gosforth struck on the half hour mark. Kieron Locke caught a clearing kick on the left wing and, combining with his colleagues, took a return pass to score in the corner. 26-38. With time almost up, Anderson put a high kick down the middle of the field. The bounce favoured Gosforth and Ramsey chasing after it was able to dribble the ball forward and it bounced neatly into his arms to score his hat-trick. Anderson’s 5th and final conversion brought the final score of 26-45.
