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.
