Macclesfield Colts 10 – 14 Stockport

The Colts rued their missed opportunities in a game that they dominated territory, but couldn’t maintain possession or find an extra cutting edge to secure the win. Stockport scored early in the first half after the Blues defence had hesitated, thinking they saw a forward pass and a knock on in the scoring move. The Blues then spent long periods in the Stockport twenty two, but came away with nothing for their efforts. It was deep into the second half before the Blues levelled the scores. Putting some pace on the ball, George made a break, then fed Aled on the left wing. Aled shrugged off a tackle to score to the left of the posts. A penalty shot from Ollie gave the Blues the lead with eight minutes to go, but they couldn’t contain the Stockport attack who slid over for the wining try with less than one minute left on the clock.

After conceding the score, the pack made a series of attempts to breach the Stockport line, but gave away possession after taking the ball into the maul and not being able to recycle it before the referee said “use it.” Because scrums were uncontested, the pack weren’t given the opportunity to win the ball back, so Stockport could clear their lines after every unsuccessful maul. There was more urgency in the second half, the backs making the odd break and the quick tap penalty putting the opposition on the back foot. The two Ollies broke down the right wing gaining valuable territory. Tom intercepted the ball, but was beaten to his chip ahead by the scramble defence. The try eventually came, after the ball was recycled quickly to the left. George made the initial break, then gave the ball to Aled on his shoulder. Aled cut inside, brushing off the tackle, to score to the left of the posts. Ollie’s conversion levelled the scores. Ollie’s long distance penalty crept over the bar to take the lead five minutes later. Stockport rallied to score a converted try in the last minute, the final whistle coming before the Blues could reply.
