Yatton Scorers - Try O Noble

Strong wind and need for Bin Cards feature of fierce conflict.

For the fourth Saturday in succession Yatton found themselves behind in the score line at halftime and went on to lose the match. But to be fair there was very little more that the visiting side could have done faced with a head on fierce cold wind and occasional rain which stung the eyes.

Both sides were fired up from the beginning and were aware that for each of them winning points could determine their teams league for next season.

The hard put Referee dished out a yellow card to a Flanker from each side after six minutes and Yattons defence continued to be tested. Eventually Marys inside centre broke through at pace and the try, beneath the posts, was convert at 20 minutes in.

Marys opposite Flanker was binned five minutes later and the revolving door opened for Yattons Outside Centre nine minutes later as the energy and spirit from both sides waged on.

Unfortunately for Yatton, Marys, having missed a penalty conversion on the fortieth minute managed to get their wing on the score board with a touchdown in the thirteenth minute of the fifteen of first half injury time, making the half-time score 12-0.

George Osbornes wind assisted penalty conversion from beyond the halfway mark perversely glance back into play from an upright two minutes after the turnaround.

Seven minutes later a confused visiting Second Row was carded and all was quiet except for the hotly contested game of end to end rugby , until St Marys Scrum half was binned with the sixth yellow of the afternoon and 10 minutes of normal time left.

Two minutes later wing Ollie Noble was set free on the touchline and crossed over in the corner. Meanwhile the bitterly cold wind had turned to driving across the field with no rain content. Osbornes kick had to be from far out and with the wind, which whipped it across the face of the posts.

The home side hung on to their lead but Yattons spirit could not be questioned and neither could St Marys.

For the next two Saturdays Yattons 1st XV have consecutive home league matches. This coming Saturday will be an humdinger against top of the table Berry Hill and the following Saturday is at home against old favourites Stroud.

This Saturday the 2nd XV are scheduled to meet Bridgwater also at home, while the 3rd XV travel away to Stothert & Pitt 2nds.
