Your News Pershore 15 - Newbold on Avon 42

Undoubtably the better team won, but the scoreline flattered the

visitors to Piddle Park.Pershores forwards battled manfully all

afternoon, and probably just shaded the forward battle, however, two

defensive howlers, and an interception try, gifted Newbold 21 pts, so in

essence, the score line could have been far closer. For the first

quarter, Pershore played the majority of the game in Newbolds half, and

had numerous chances of scoring. However, a lack of cutting edge, a

wrong decision made, and handling errors, resulted in Pershore not

altering the scoreboard. Newbold were a fit, young team, who played a

wide running, game, and it was when Pershore were stretched that Newbold

scored their points. At half time Pershore were still in touch, as they

were only 17 pts down, and from the start of the second half, Pershore

pressed hard, and were rewarded with a well taken Ash White try, and a

penalty success from Will Woodhouse. The gap narrowed even further, when

the dependable Martin Hope crashed over, and Woodhouse converting.

Newbold then took control for the last quarter, it was during this

period that Pershore had their defensive lapses, and leaked a few

scores. Overall, it was a battling performance against a good team, but

many improvements can be made.
