Bromsgrove 5 – 43 The Blues

Wingers Ed Stobart and Matt King both grabbed braces to help the Blues to a 5 – 43 victory against Bromsgrove on Saturday.

It was Sam Moss who opened the scoring. The Blues dominated territory from the start and the forwards gained the hard yards before the hooker forced his way over to give Macclesfield a dream start.

Midway through the first half Stobart scored a quick double. He has Jordan Brookes and Matt King to thank for his first try, they broke down the short side and thanks to some good interplay worked the extra man. Stobart read the play well and raced off his wing to the other side of the field to receive the final pass.

His second was a genuine try, the forwards again gained the hard yards and sucked in the defence. Deep in the opposition 22, the space out wide was exploited by some slick handling, the winger finished well in the corner.

With a man in the sin bin, Bromsgrove were one man short in defence and Matt King took advantage; a set piece move made some space down the shirt side for the winger to run into and it was a simple finish.

With the last play of the first half the hosts broke out from their own 22, the ball was hacked up field and it was a foot race that Bromsgrove won. This was the first time the hosts troubled the scorers and it made 5 – 22 at half time.

Five minutes into the second half Ryan Parkinson bagged his weekly try, he was quick from the base and this speed made him very difficult to stop. That score takes him up to 21 tries for the season.

The number eight turned provider for the next score, his slick pass between the legs set up King to race for the corner. With a man outside it appeared that the winger had blown the chance but powered his way over, taking some defenders with him.

The final score went to Jonny Kenny who, for not the first time this season, came off the bench to make the impact and round things off.

It all added up to an important 5 – 43 win the Blues who were keen to rectify things after last weeks defeat and they turned in a very polished performance to do so.

The league hasn’t changed much since last week and Macclesfield remain in 2nd position behind Darlington Mowden Park, who beat Dudley 10 – 53 as expected.
