Newark U16's come out on top


Newark U16's come out on top

Having only had 2 competitive games so far this season, Newark U 16's were eager to play some Rugby, so it was fitting that this Sunday happened to see Paviours, last seasons NLD Champions, pay a visit to Kelham Road. Recent years have always seen the two sides play some great Rugby in what are normally very closely contested games, with Paviours more times than not the victors.
So it was no surprise when Paviours started strongly with purposeful running and strong carries into Newark's half. The Newark defence however, remained intact with some good tackling and closing down of the Paviours main play makers. Paviours resilience paid off after about 15 mins when they exposed Newark out wide and showed good pace to go over for an unconverted try. (0-5)
Newark fought back well and after a great line break by Dylan Terry up the centre of the pitch and penalty for a high tackle, the kick to touch put them in a great field position. From the resulting line out the pack sought out the Paviours try line with a series of drives and pick and go's, to the point were Paviours were adjudged to have come in from the side preventing a score and Newark were awarded a penalty try. (7-5) and half time.
The beginning of the second half saw Newark continue to dominate territory and possession and it wasn't long before they scored their 2nd try, this time from a strong reach for the line by Ewan Lea after some great forward play (12-5). Soon afterwards George Bacon's strong individual run from he half way line cut through the Paviours defence allowing him to hand off the covering defence and score under the posts, converted by Olly Gelsthorpe (19-5). Newark seemed to have a confidence about them now that allowed them to keep playing positive rugby and they soon scored a fourth when Dylan Terry was on the end of some great link up play between the forwards and the backs (24-5).
Paviours were by no means out of it and they pressed deep into the Newark half after the award of a penalty in the middle of the pitch. They continued to dominate possession in the final quarter of the game and managed another unconverted try wide about 5 minutes from the final whistle, but that proved to be the last points of the game and meant Newark won 24 to 10.
Another great game between 2 close rivals but nice to be on the winning side this time.
