Waterhead Under 7's made the trip to Westhoughton in terrible conditions. The game went ahead regardless of the hail and rain, these young guns are made of stern stuff!
A strong start was made by both teams, Waterhead's defensive line was solid, but Westhoughton eventually broke through and scored twice to go 2-0, we answered with a brilliant try by Jimmy "Jim Bob" Mason, only to see Westhoughton get over the try line once more.
Half time score: Westhoughton 3 - 1 Waterhead
Second half saw an even more determined Waterhead side, once again our tackling was fantastic with Niall Dean leading the way, the only way Westhoughton could get near the line was taking the ball out wide which they did scoring again to make it 4-1. We kept on defending brilliantly forcing a turnover, we showed some great passing which resulted in Joseph McDonald showing his pace down the wing scoring. 4-2 we where closing in. Minutes later Lucas Wilkes took the ball in and with a great team effort and a good amount of heaving crashed over the try line to make it 4-3. Westhoughton replied with another try and after defending our next set of six they quickly scored again ending the game on top.
Final score: Westhoughton 6 - 3 Waterhead
A brilliant performance by the young Waterhead side who are improving so much each week and show they have got determination in abundance and plenty of spirit!
We would like to congratulate Westhoughton on their win and for their hospitality.
