Your News Blackheath 25 - Blaydon 14

Not for the first time this season Blaydon shot themselves in the foot by incurring a yellow card at a crucial point in the game. Leading by 7-5 midway through the second period they lost influential scrum-half Mickey Young to the sin-bin and then conceded 12 points in the next 10 minutes.

Earlier Andrew Fenby had provided the highlight of the first half when he picked up on half-way and ghosted past 3 tackles in his inimitable style to score under the posts with Andrew Baggett adding the conversion.

Blackheath hit back after the break with a try in the corner from their winger Alex Page and then came the deluge. Considerable pressure on the Blaydon line brought them a penalty try which was quickly followed by a good effort from Mark Odejobi which was improved by Matt Leek.

Back at full strength Blaydon reduced the deficit to just 3 points when Scott Riddell was driven over, Baggett again converting, but some good possession failed to produce further success and it was the home side that finished the stronger.

Their flanker Gareth Jones crossed for a 4th try and in the closing minutes put paid to Blaydon hopes of a losing bonus point when Leek was on target with a penalty.
