After the disapointing loss at home to blackbrook, shevington longed to avoid defeat at all cost in their second game of the season, away at halton simms cross.
For the second week running, shevington came out of the blocks like a bull to a red rag, gang tackling in defence and spreading the ball well in attack. with the game well under way and both teams yet to score, Simms cross broke the dead lock with a try from a somewhat lucky bounce off the post from a kick through. Simms score 2 more in quick succession from two questionable penalties, but capitalised non the less.
Toward the end of the second half shevington began to apply more pressure making a nunmber of breaks, pushing to the line and obtaining 3 consecutive sets, but failed profit from their hard earned yards, meaning the home team went into the break leading 18-0
The second half did not begin with the same vigor of the first, and this showed as the home side went over the try line again.
Shevington gave away some silly penalties throughout the game, meaning the sharks were defending for the most part. A lack in fitness began to show early on in the second half, although efforts from Mike Norton
, Luke Murpy and Andrew Moss
eventually paid off as the sharks pulled back a concelation try in the form of Big fat Phil Mal.
The Game ended 36-6 to simms cross, a scoreline which somewhat flattered the home side.
