Spartans wreak revenge on Berkswell

BERKSWELL suffered revenge at the hands of Spartans for their early season victory at Meer End lane.

BERKSWELL suffered revenge at the hands of Spartans for their early season victory at Meer End lane.

The B’s had their moments during the game, including a late flourish, but never looked like winning.

Spartans kicked a long range penalty to lead 3-0 in just one of two successful kicks all afternoon.

After 22 minutes, the Spartans backs rounded off a flowing move to crash over for the game’s first try. The conversion was wide but it set-up a period of home dominance which continued to half-time.

Berkswell prevented further Spartans scores until two minutes from half-time when the home back-row launched a move to register their second try. The conversion was missed to give Spartans a 15-0 lead.

Good work saw a number of moves along the line end with bright, but failing attempts to get over the try-line.

At the end of the game’s third quarter Berkswell managed to turn their enterprise into a score. A kick from Sam Bignall found winger Cameron Hunt who dotted down in the corner.

Two quick tries – both unconverted – saw Spartans increase their lead to 25-5. Again Berkswell rallied and had the upper hand for the final minutes. This was rewarded when pressure on the Spartans no. 8 resulted in a hurried pass behind the scrum, B’s Captain Joe Cart intercepting the ball and racing to the line, for yet another unconverted try.
