Your News Old Sillhillians 36 - Pershore 19

Pershores dreadful away form continued on Saturday when they lost to a well drilled, but beatable Sills team. From the whistle Pershore bristled with intent , running from their own 22, and playing enterprising rubgy, but ultimatly the last pass was missed , dropped, or the wrong option taken. Sills dominated territory in the first 30 minutes, but with ten minutes to half time all Sills could muster was a 3 nil lead with a penalty success. However, all of a sudden there was two killer blows. Firstly a kick ahead was run back at Pershore, a ruck in the 22 gave Sills options, and a simple overlap was exploited. Secondly on the stroke of half time a poor line out was not cleaned up, and Sills swarmed over the ball, and quickly crashed over. Both tries were converted. 17 to 0 at haf time. Pershore fought back in the second half, but from an attacking position, turn over ball was sped wide, and Sills increased their lead . With an uphill task ahead Pershore played to their strengths which is keeping the ball in hand, and were rewarded when Marcus Whyte scored after some fine approach play from the forwards. Dolphin converted. With confidence on the up, again Pershore produced some fine approach play, with some great off loads taken at pace, which enabled cWill Wood house to score in the corner, The conversion was missed. Strangely, rather than keeping the ball to hand Pershore got into old bad habits and began to kick hard earnt possession away. In doing so they gave Sills the chance to use their skillful backs to good effect who in turn punished Pershore by scoring two converted tries. With time running out, Pershore reduced the arrears again when prolific scoring second row Marcus Whyte crashed over to complete his brace, Dolphin converting. On the full time whistle Sills spread the ball wide, and a clever inside pass to their free running full back saw him complete the days scoring. When Pershore realise that keeping the ball in hand , rather than kicking possession away, is a better option, they will have a far better chance of competing in this league. Pershore entertain Earlsdon in a fortnight, at Piddle Park.
