Your News Seghill 62 - Sedgefield 3

Rocked by injuries sustained in last weeks game at Seaham, including prop John Dugan - broken ankle, wing Joe McLean - dislocated shoulder, and prop Rick Monaghan - torn ankle ligaments, and with wing Nick Heard playing with stitches in a thumb injury, Seghill welcomed Sedgefield to an unseasonable warm Welfare Park on Saturday, for their latest Durham and Northumberland Division 3 match.

Going into the match on the back of three defeats, Seghill were determined to get back to winning ways, and dominated the game from the start. However they first breakthough did not come until the 10th minute, when Seghill won the ball from the visitors scrum deep in Sedgefields 22. Dan Slater played the ball out to Matthew Sherman who went over for a try in the corner. Sherman sustained a blood injury in the process and had to leave the field for treatment. He was replaced by Jonny Hepworth. In the meantime, Jake Armstrong slotted over the conversion.

Moments later Sedgefield were penalised for not releasing Heard after his rin down the left wing. Slater kicked to the corner, and from the lineout the forwards drove Gavin Burgess over for Seghill's second try.

James Goodwin scored a fine solo try after 21 minutes, with a run from his own half, down the left wing. Slater though he was about to score try number 4, but a fine tackle right on the line, by Owen Robinson took him into touch.

The visitors were unable to break out of their own half, as Seghill dominated possession and territory. When Craig Wood gathered the ball from a lineout on the 5m line, he slipped the ball to Anth Lowery to score.

From the restart, Seghill conceded a penalty, and Robinson's kick from infront of the posts saw Sedgefield finally get on the scoresheet. However, Seghill powered forward again, Jake Armstrong surging through for a try on the stroke of half time. Slater added the 2 points.

Just after the break, Armstrong got his second try with a solo run from the half way line, Slater again adding the conversion.

With Sedgefiled strugging against the power of the Seghill pack, the lost the ball again from their own scrum. No. 8 Wood swung off the back of the scrum and released Lowery again for another try under the posts which Slater converted.

With the match well out of Sedgefields reach, Seghill rattled in 3 more tries, all from Paul Latham, the first converted by Slater and the third by Armstrong, to record a comprehensive 62-3 home victory.
