Another Win On The Road Again
Bolstered by 2 thirds of the Ultimate's another hard fought win on the road.
With the continuing injury list not appearing to get any shorter , a number of the development squad where required for first team duty.
Due to this the Ultimate's game had to be cancelled and 2/3 of the squad can up to cover a large part of the squad.
The games started well but within the first minute it became evident that the man in the middle liked to blow his whistle.
Penalty after penalty gave the home side the first shot at goal but this time it was hooked to the left of the post.
Five minutes later the ref decided that the game was to be played with no contest at the breakdown and awarded another penalty in front of the posts. 3 points up for the home side courteous of the man in the middle.
At the restart there was a flourish of tackles in centre field as the home side tried to put together a few attacking phases, but the Tows defence stood strong.
Due to the defence Syston knocked on and Tows put in a the scrum. which for the first time this season against a far larger pack pushed the home side backward.
Quick ball out through the centres made good yardage as Matt Bodily
managed to get his hands back onto the ball for the first score. Callum Garwood
added the extras.
A few minutes later the the ball again was put simply through the hands and Alex Pittaway
scored out by the fifteen.
The next fifteen minute the man in the middle could have significantly change the result of the game.
First a yellow card for Kris Ancil
for hands in the ruck and the 7 minutes later another yellow for Cam Young for what appeared to be a high tackle,
This gave the home team more numbers on the park and in the end the defence ran out of numbers and the home side scored.
The second half was a non event as a half with neither side being able to string together any significant phases.
With the number of ultimate's on the bench there was the usual raft of replacements and the game took a while to settle again.
The home side took advantage and scored their second try.
An injury to the home prop lead to a change of pitch as an ambulance was call for. Hopefully everything ends up being ok .
The final score of the game went to Cam Young as he kept hold of the ball and did what he does best, weaving and bouncing off the opposition to eventually came through the defence to score.
A great try to end the game and a great result showing that the strength of all 3 squads at Towcester.
Man of the match went to Nick Blackman
