Then Park realltt turned it on playing some of the best rugby they have played all year running in four unansweed tries to win 20-0.The Cup stays at Park ,well done boys  

 

COUNTY CUP WINNERS AGAIN

E-mail Print PDF

The Predators have done it again ,a Grand Slam of junior County Cups since 2008 cementing their place in Percy Park history.

A beautiful day at druids saw Park dominate a valiant Gosforth side who despite some early pressure were outplayed.The pack stood up well to a much heavier unit and when we released the ball and pulled their defense around we looked very dangerous.

The first try came from some excellent running and footwork from Rogerson followed up by a strong run from Fisher that put Groves over for the second.Gillespie converting both,Gosforth replied with a penalty before half time.

The second half was much the same as the first ,excellent first up tackling but sometimes the final pass or line of running not quite right.Gillespie added another three .Then with a very kickable penalty on offer(with coaches shouting slot it over)he tapped and went putting Lakey over in the corner.At 22-3 we took our eyes off the ball allowing Gosforth a consolation try ,but it was all over and the Champagne flowed

Well done to a truly magnificent squad effort

Park caming through this cup semi having faced probably the best tackling display they have seen all season.despite dominating possession in the first half we continually failed to get over the line trying to smash our way through rather than think a bit more.

As soon as the ball went wide we looked threatening,Groves in particular but we failed to employ either winger enough.Still we turned round 3-0 up thanks to a penalty from Gillespie.

The second half started the same as the first,total domination of territory but again failing to take the opportunities.Then the breakthrough a charged down clearance saw Middlemiss over in the corner for 8-0.

Then Morpeth came back strongly and really started to test us ,but the lads fisrt line tackling was excellent,despite this Morpeth scored a great try in the corner and converted from touch 8-7 and ten to play .more dominance from the restart and Rogerson was half tackled got to his feet and stretched over the line for a great finish,we failed to convert so 13-7.

Then backs to the wall stuff ,Morpeth threw everything at us,we couldnt afford to leak a try as the standoff had showed he could convert from anywhere.Last play Morpeth pen 35 yards out they tapped and went but four phases in knocked on .Phew -close call but our fourth cup final in a row beckons ,well done Morpeth worthy opponents but hats off to the Predators -a big win

Malton 26 Predators 20

Park went down fighting with a valiant llase quarter display against a spirited Malton side.

Having eventually arrived half an hour late following an 'interesting'bus journey we started well ,Atkinson going over after some good phases and then it all went terribly wrong.Malton breezed to a 19-5 first half lead as we quite simply failed to tackle and arrange our defence at rucks and mauls.

We started the second half well and dominated the early encounters but it was Malton who scored and converted well to go 26-5 up.

Then last 15 minutes we rallied as they tired.Tries by Ward,Fisher and Gillespie made for a nailbiting finish and it was Malton who greeted the whistle with delight not Park.

We will rue some missed kicks and questionable decision making on our own penalties,but the disappointment on the pitch soon disappeared with the warm hospitality in the club.A good day out despite the ups and downs(that is not ups in our bus). Must improve for the cup semi though
