Gosforth 26 v 17 Redcar

vital bonus point win for Gosforth

  Saturday 25th November 2017 Gosforth 26 Redcar 17
 
CRAIC; England defeat Australia 30-6, hardly a “skin of teeth” victory, yet still there is sniping and griping. As for Scotland, drawing upon a small pool of players, an international team has been created that destroyed Australia and pushed the mighty All Blacks. We head for an “interesting” RBS 6 Nations competition with Wales and Ireland both fielding strong squads, good for the health of the British game. Meanwhile, GSSA is targeted by a fast running, undisciplined and destructive force known as the vandal, of course there is “nothing for these youngsters to do*, try telling that to the mainly “youngsters” who give up hours  each week to train and practise their sporting skills at Broadway West...

THE MATCH;  Broadway West was a very chilly and grey venue when Gosforth kicked off. Redcar made a confident start with a couple of early breaks that were stifled by effective Gosforth tackling. The visitors missed an early penalty, Gosforth’s Kieron Locke was well tackled. Redcar ran a penalty, threatening the Gosforth line, then the focus moved downfield with Gosforth pressuring the Redcar line.
Redcar struck first, a simple direct move saw their lock Steve Johnson cross the line and score a try that full back Danny Addison converted to give them a 7-0 lead. Soon a line out win near to the Redcar line paved the way for a try by the long reaching Gosforth lock Andy Scott, who forced his way over the line from close range, skipper Andy Black’s conversion equalising the score at 7-7. Redcar drove upfield, Gosforth centre. Kieron Locke, made a 20 metre break. Then the pace of Ryan Gillespie made a telling impact, as he made an arcing break, lock Andrew Camplejohn, supporting him, made a surgical strike, scoring a try that Andy Black converted giving Gosforth a 14-7 lead with 32 minutes played. A third Gosforth converted try scored by winger Liam Hawthorn, who “ghosted” through the Redcar defence, increased Gosforth’s lead to a comfortable 21-7 at halftime.
Redcar kicked off the second half, Liam Hawthorn made a show of early intent with a break, but it was Redcar scrumhalf Nathan Williams, who scored a try, converted by Danny Addison ,who narrowed the points gap to 21-14, then, a Danny Addison penalty success closed the gap even further to 21-17. Redcar missed two penalties, to quote one of the Gosforth faithful “it was too close for comfort” in a game where the result was so vital to both sides, and, during which, Gosforth had suffered some worrying injury problems. Redcar missed another penalty kick.
A forceful Gosforth attack was thwarted by determined Redcar defence. Gosforth won a scrum close to the Redcar line, Matthew Marshall found a gap and darted over to score a fourth Gosforth try that was unconverted giving Gosforth a 26-17 lead which they held for the remaining 10 minutes, thus depriving Redcar of a vital losing bonus point. Hardworking prop Dave Robinson, put his head down and drove at Redcar; the visitors missed a penalty at the death, rewarding Gosforth’s chilly, but cheerful band of supporters with a 5 league points victory.
This Saturday we travel down the A19 to face those “big, and even bigger lads” at Horden and Peterlee, their 23-10 win at South Shields Westoe giving some indication of the task that faces us.
