What a tough game we had, we took some of our bigger lads to play a big Meltham side on Sunday.
We ended the first half going in 4 tries to 3 down with 2 of our tries coming from James Heliwell and and the other from Ellis Hobson.
The first half had quite a few mistakes made by bowling with either losing the ball on an early play or going too close to the touch line and being pushed out and having to hand the ball over to Meltham.
After a few words at half time from the coach and a couple of parents, we knew we were the stronger side and it was a matter of keeping hold of the ball and playing out all of our plays.
This proved to pay off as we started very strong in the second half by scoring 2 tries from Dan Brooksbank and Lewis taking the score to 5 - 4 in Bowlings favour.
We tackled really well throughout the game but Meltham pulled one back late on. Meltham knocked on right on our try line and Daniel Housecroft took the run to gain us a few yards however, Daniel ran the full length of the pitch to score the winning try.
Man of the match was joint and went to Lewis and Ellis, Try of the Match went to Dan Housecroft and Top Tackler went to our smallest man Alfie who made some Try saving tackles on more than one occasion.
Zak Alderson had a great game and was at dummy half for nearly every play and Zak Goodridge also tackled with determination and came close to getting his first try for the Green Machine!
Well done boys, I was very proud of you all!!
