1st XV vs Oxton Parkonians

Match Report

After last weeks win for our 3s over our closest neighbours & dear rivals (& bragging rights for a week) it was important to back that win up with another. This being a home game, a 1st team game, points at stake & our shakey start to the season & playing in front of a large crowd of ex players made for a big day at the club & put an extra edge to the game. The payers responded as you would want to, on time & prepared well for the game.
The team was again much changed from the last time out & this is an area we need to find more consistancy in, However it was great to see Ben Holland,Gino & JB back in the Prenton Shirt. The 1st half was all Prenton, The forwards really playing the power game dominant at the scrum & lots of hard running lines from the whole pack & no surprise when JB went over for the 1st score of the game (converted by MTH). More presure led to a penalty slotted by MTH to keep the score board ticking. Honestly with an extra pass here & there (2x passes boys, hard lines a bit wider from the heavy traffic) the game could of been over by half time but we got bit greedy in the 22 & really should of scored more points. Parkonioans only once getting into the Prenton 22 & that was from a couple of soft penalties & a sin binning for JB. Still winning 10-0 at half time & playing 30mins of the first 40 with 14 men was still pleasing.
Half Time Prenton 10-0 Oxton Parkonians
The 2nd half got off to the worst possible start with Parkonians scoring early & then again soon after & the momentum has swung in their favour. 10-12 Parkonians, some fresh legs helped Prenton get a foot hold into the game not long later it 13-10 Prenton after an MTH penalty. With the score finally balanced it was all to play for & attacking down the hill & moving the ball wider it was Parkoninas who were looking the more dangerous & scored again 13-17 Parkonians. Our boys were not to be out fort & finished the last quarter the much fresher side, A great bust out of our 22 from winger Gino put Prenton up field & deep into Parkonians half. With territory & possesion it was not long after Big Ace crashed over & the score was 17-17. Momentum back with Prenton & another try for fullback Jordon Anisle from the Prenton move (even thou you done wrong boys centers should of been on the other side). Great running line & under the sticks, conversion MTH. 24-17 Prenton & still time for JB to go over for his 2nd of the match after Prenton turned down a kickable penalty & choose to run the ball as the confidence was now flowing through the team. Again converted by MTH, final score
Prenton 31 Oxton Parkonians 17.
Great day all round on & off he pitch. lets make training boys & yourselves available (which ever team you play for). We have the players to compete in this league & up to us as group to kick on. Special mention to Dad & Lad combo of ATH & MTH, ATH stepping in to fill the 9 role, MTH who had a great game at 10 but most of all these boys were going to the Rugby League Grand Final in Manchester & were planning on leaving our game 20 mins early. But credit to both as neither wanted to leave the game & stayed to the end. Also well done to the Academics on the top pitch who had another fine win.
