Great performance from both teams on this almost summer morning.
for the first time in a few weeks we played on a pitch that we didn't sink into whilst playing!
West Bowling Steve started strong and were 16 points to 0 up within the first ten minutes with tries coming from Archie Halmshaw
(4)zig zagged his way to one of his tries, Harry Hainsworth
(1) which was almost full length and Zak Goodridge
(1)this was Zak's first try for Bowling!
Dearne Valley learnt quickly to stay away from the touchline and got themselves back int the game by scoring 2 good tries.
At the break Bowling went in 20 points to 12 up and were also a little complacent thinking they had it in the bag. However, Dearne Valley came out in the second half and scored 3 more tries to Bowlings 1 making the score even.
from then on the game was very competitive and very close with both teams tackling hard and wanting to win. Great tackles were made from both teams and Archie Halmshaw
(Dearne Valleys MOM) Dan Housecroft, Zak Alderson
(Coaches MOM) Alfie Greenwood
and Cameron Lewis made some great tackles.
captain for the game Jarred Butt and Adam Wainwright also played well and look to be improving with every game.
Both teams are away playing at Slaithwaite next week who are a big well organised side, lets hope we don't lose 2 on the bounce!
Well done on Sunday lads, you all played great.
