2nd Team Continue Good Start to Season with Another Win

Mowden 2nds took full advantage of their first use of the Arena pitch this term, out-scoring their opponents seven tries to three in a comprehensive victory.

South African new boy, Brandon Asher-Wood, wasted no time opening his account in English rugby, crossing after only two minutes to give his side a 5 - 0 lead. Fly-half, Jack Blakeney-Edwards, failed to convert for the only time in an otherwise impressive day with the boot, in which he added the extras to each of the other six tries. His first success came on twelve minutes, adding the extras to Asher-Wood's second try, and when livewire back-rower, Rory Duff, got in before fifteen minutes were up, it was beginning to look like a long day for the Lions. Amazingly, Asher-Wood had a debut hat-trick in the bag by the time 24 minutes was up, and with the score running at slightly more than a point a minute at this stage, Percy Park desperately needed to steady the ship. By and large they did so, and although impressive young lock, Callum Burke, got in with two minutes of the half remaining, the visitors had the last word with a converted try on the whistle. 33 - 7 at the break left the away team with a mountain to climb, but they at least started the ascent with another converted try within seven minutes of the restart. The comeback ran out of momentum at this point, however, and the home side rediscovered their own scoring touch, with Duff bagging his second on 66 minutes. To the Lions' credit, they refused to lie down, and they scored their third try with ten minutes remaining, but 40 - 19 was as close as it got. Fittingly, it was Duff who had the last word, putting the gloss on a man-of-the-match performance by completing his hat-trick from the last play of the game. Blakeney-Edwards' sixth successful conversion completed the scoring, and both sides probably took something out of an entertaining game which ended DMPRFC 2nds 47, Percy Park Lions 19.
