Blues 34-27 Caldy

Macclesfield responded from an opening day defeat with a 34-27 win at home to Cheshire rivals Caldy.

Both sides exchanged penalties early on, Jack Lavin adding three for the visitors and Lewis Barker for the hosts.

The first try came on 10 minutes when scrum half Jordan Brookes offloaded brilliantly for winger Josh Fowles to beat a few men on the way to the line.

Caldy responded on 20 minutes, lock forward Tom Sanders crashed over from close range, leaving the score at 10-10.

Macclesfield regained the lead on the half hour mark. Elliot Brierley scoring a fantastic individual try as he beat numerous opposition defenders on his way to the line, Lewis Barker added the extras, 17-10 at half time.

The Blues burst out of the blocks for the second half. Matt O’Regan hit a fantastic line to grab a score on 50 minutes and extend the Macc league.

Caldy bounced back 5 minutes later as Lavin added the try and conversion to make it 24-17.

A spell of heavy Caldy pressure followed but the Blues defended brilliantly  and turned attack into defence, Franky Barker finished the move and secured the win.

Caldy added a try late on and both teams exchanged penalties, Macc get the 5 point win and Caldy come away with a losing bonus point.
