Caldy and Park crash
CALDY had to settle for a try and a penalty in their latest outing in National Two North League which ended in an 8-29 reverse at Darlington Mowden Park.
J .Dickinson was the player to touch down and Richard Vasey landed the kick but Darlington managed four tries in all plus a brace of penalties and a conversion.
Home winger Chris McTugh with a hat-trick of touch downs was the player of the match. Prop Peter Doolan was Caldy’s Man of the Match.
The score was possibly harsh on the Wirral side who produced some fine rugby at times but were thwarted by some last ditch home tackling, especially in the third quarter.
Birkenhead Park produced a below par display at Kendal to lose their latest National Three North League clash 13-22.
Stu Brown and Lee Brogan scored tries and Danny Rich a penalty but poor decision making proved costly. Kendal scored three tries, two conversions and a penalty and deserved the spoils on the day.
Park are third bottom and now need a miracle to retain their current status.
Anselmians posted a third successive victory this time 22-14 win over Kirby Lonsdale in North One West.
Nathan McHugh, Pepe Mafi and Ollie Whorton breached the visiting defence and Simon Mason was on target with two conversions and a penalty.
The Malone Field outfit is now five points away from the safety zone and some hard work lies ahead in the closing fixtures.
Wirral produced another solid display to account for Altrincham Kersal 18-12 away from home.
Their thirteenth win means they are now fifth in the table with a game in hand and could still reach third place.
New Brighton’s promotion hopes in South Lancashire/Cheshire One suffered a set-back as they fell 14-37 at Warrington.
The division leaders were just too strong and the Blues see their promotion hopes fading somewhat.
It was better for fourth placed Hoylake as they despatched Wigan 23-9 at Melrose Avenue.
Wallasey moved further clear of danger in Division Three with a 25-17 finish against visiting Buxton.
Oldershaw fell to a disappointing 22-41. at Marple and are now second bottom and facing the drop.
Port Sunlight stayed just off the pace in Division Three with a 28-12 victory at Trentham. They are a point behind Manchester Medics who have a game in hand.
Ellesmere Port whipped Liverpool University 55-0 to keep third but a late penalty put paid to Oxton Parkonians at Capenhurst where it finished 24-21. Andy Smith twice and Liam Sadler breached the Capenhurst rearguard and Smith converted each time.
Prenton did not play and are fourth in the division.
