Semi ends in Injury Misery!
Plate Semi Final- Paviors v Buxton
A case of déjà vu for this game as again it was very tight and chances were rare. Great tackles were going in from both teams and the first half ended two minutes shorter than the pool games [bizarrely] which gave little chance for either team to make an impact.
Half Time- Paviors 0 Buxton 0
In the second half, Buxton asserted themselves and used the slight slope to good advantage. Paviors were camped on their own try line for the first few minutes, but still continued to tackle like Trojans. Paviors could not retain possession enough to get the ball out to the fleet footed backs. With only a couple of minutes left, Buxton powered over with a ‘forwards’ dominated try. Paviors tried to level the scores but play was suspended near to the end with an injury to Snake Hips that saw him stretched off the pitch! Luckily he was OK [Thanks to Super-dad Jason] but there was no time left for a restart and Buxton won another close contest.
Final Score – Paviors 0 Buxton 5
