First win remains elusive after errors
9:00am Thursday 19th September 2013 in Sport
LYMM'S faltering start to the National League Three Midlands season continued with their second contest against Sandbach in two weeks.
Poor in the corresponding Cheshire Cup fixture, Lymm were hoping for an improved performance, but instead knock-ons, forced passes, penalties and missed tackles conspired to leave the visitors still hunting for their first win of the season.
Longson’s break gave Sandbach the first of their tries, before missed tackles allowed them to add further tries to open a 23-6 lead in the first half.
A head injury to Lymm’s scrum half Tom Baker ensured coach Chris Kinsey made yet another return from retirement, and Nolan’s penalty before the break meant Lymm were staring down the barrell of a 30-9 half-time score.
The visitors were more resilient after the break but their cutting edge let them down, with only Adam Bray’s try to show for a period of play that could have turned the game in their favour.
The hosts sensed weakness and pounced, scoring two tries to seal the game and cancel out Baker’s late consolation effort.
Lymm host Scunthorpe on Saturday, kick off 3pm.
Lymm: Jordan Widdrington, John Millington, Joe Cooper, Bruce McNicol, Tom Darbyshire, James Yates, Sion Williams, Adam Bray, Tom Baker, Joe Knowles, Cormack Nolan, Tom Bray, Richard McEvoy, Nathan Fernyhough, Andy Rowley. Subs: Chris Kinsey, Adam Fletcher, Harvey McCormack.
Lymm 2nd XV XV 17
Broughton Park 2nd XV 22
A FRUSTRATING defeat to Broughton was not how Lymm’s second team wanted to open their home account in the Raging Bull North West Division One.
Leading 17-15 with 10 minutes remaining after tries from Shard, Dan Horton and a Shard penalty, Lymm allowed Park to break through late on to steal victory.
Sale 3rd XV 27
Lymm 3rd XV 7
THE thirds kicked off their Raging Bull Division Three North campaign with a disappointing loss at Heywood Road.
A promising performance was the highlight but Sale were too strong, opening a 27-0 lead before Ben Hinton replied with Lymm’s only try, converted by Luke Ferguson.
Lymm 4th XV 73
Winnington Park 3rd XV 14
LYMM’S fourth team may have struggled to scrape the numbers together for this Raging Bull Division Four South match, but they had no such difficulty in amassing an impressive scoreline.
They cut apart the 14 men of Winnington, opening a 28-0 half-time lead before adding another seven after the break.
