Tyldesley vs West Park

by Dave Berry

Tyldesley 24 pts West Park 17pts by Eric Briers

Only the final vital clinical finishing touch prevented West Park from inflicting a shock home defeat at second placed Tyldesley.Park led after 10 minutes as centre Matt Cozens sent wing partner John James over the try line,Warren Hunt adding the conversion for a 7-0 lead,short lived however as a catch and drive from a close in lineout brought a levelling score for Tyldesley also converted.

A double turn over put fullback Ben Robinson over wide out and Park were back in front at 12-7.Another well executed catch and drive by the home pack again levelled the scores as half time approached,Park relaxing their grip to concede a converted try from a chip over their defence and catch near the line for a 12-19 score line.Park were quick to respond on the resumption as a forward drive and quich interpassing put prop Jon Gorst over,the comparatively easy conversion was wide but Park were only 17-19 in arrears.Opportunities to snatch victory were there but cool heads were not and as Tyldesley broke to gain a position in the Park '22' they were awarded a penalty as the referee adjudged Park offside,a quick tap instead of the expected kick at goal brought the decisive try.The conversion was missed so Park at least had a losing bonus point to show for their commendable efforts.

Next Saturday is Raging Bulls Cup Week so West Park 1st team have a break with Bowdon visiting Red Rocks on the28th
