Colts suc­cess­ful in a cut-and-thrust af­fair

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Colts edged a taut en­counter with Bolton in which the lead changed five times.

In an evenly-matched clash the ju­nior Blues came out 16-14 win­ners.

Prop Lewis Jones fin­ished the game bat­tered but un­bowed, his con­tri­bu­tion earn­ing the man-of-the-match award.

The Blues took the lead early with an Ol­lie As­ton penalty.

How­ever, it wasn’t un­til the sec­ond half that they got on the score­board again, skip­per Tom Le­ices­ter touch­ing down after George Phe­lan had done all the hard work in the maul.

Will Gre­gory scored the sec­ond, after a break by Archie Thor­n­ey­croft from the back of a scrum.

As­ton clinched the vic­tory with a short­range penalty in the last five min­utes of the match.
