North 1's V Ashton Under Lyne



Terrible conditions for a late summer game. The ref blew the whistle and it started to rain, and wouldn't stop until somebody scored. A tight but scrappy game which saw the home team have most of the possession with very few noticeable incidents. The rain stopped as Blaine Brady scored to ease the pressure on the home side and Baz Baron added a second before Ashton came back to make a game of it. When Lee "pug" Francis went over for the home team's 3rd try, the game was all but won. A final flurry by the visitors which saw Sam Donley being red carded for a second yellow gave the visitors a glimmer of home as they made the extra man count with their second score of the afternoon. The last few moments of the match were tense as the visitors were push the home team line but a turn over ball gave North a chance to clear their lines and almost score at the other end. The ref blew for full time and North Manchester 1's had their first win of the season. Final score 15-10
