HUTTON 2ND XV 15 SOUTHPORT 5

Hutton 2nd continued their fine form win a good win over a strong Southport XV. Playing at Preston Sports Arena Hutton took the initiative from the start with the forwards continuing where they left off the previous week.

After a series of strong scrummages it was Hutton who scored first when number 8 Tom Bailey broke from a scrum to run clear and score under the posts. The try was dually converted by Greg Baron.

Southport came back strongly and pressed the Hutton line. How ever the defence stood strong under close scrutiny.

HALF TIME 7 – 0

Now playing uncontested scrums Hutton had lost one of its biggest weapons. This did not deter them as they continued to play some entertaining rugby with a back line continually punching holes in the Southport defence. A second try however was nor forthcoming and Hutton and they had to settle for a penalty mid way through the second half. Eventually Tom Bailey scored a second try for Hutton, breaking again form the back of the scrum.

Southport came back at Hutton and after a number of attempts scored a well worked try in the corner.

Hutton held out for a good win that consolidated their place in 6th place and now look forward to the visit of second place Winnington Park next week.
