Hat-trick Pat stars in a home Bay white­wash

North Wales Weekly News - - COMMUNITY EVENTS -

PAT ATKIN­SON ran in three tries as Col­wyn Bay rat­tled up a 55-0 bonus-point win over visi­tors Wrex­ham in Di­vi­sion Two North.

In the sixth minute fly-half Atkin­son broke through the away de­fence at pace to ground and added the con­ver­sion.

Atkin­son scored the sec­ond try and notched more ex­tras af­ter fine for­ward play by hooker Dewi Hughes and open-side John Ast­bury.

The Wrex­ham for­wards gained some mo­men­tum but lost the ball af­ter a fine tackle by Krystn Yeo­mans. Yeo­mans then re­cy­cled the ball with speed and re­leased the backs, with left wing Con­nah Hard­ing scor­ing by the cor­ner flag, mak­ing it 19-0 at half time.

The sec­ond half saw the home team up the tempo, for­wards and backs work­ing well.

Bay camped in Wrex­ham’s half but play was dis­rupted due to a se­ri­ous leg in­jury to home scrum-half Barry Cavetto.

The ref­eree de­cided to move the game onto pitch two and here Bay re­ally showed what po­ten­tial there is within the squad.

A fine solo try by Ro­man Re­boul, with his first touch of the match, started the try bo­nanza, Atkin­son con­vert­ing.

Cap­tain Ben Evans and full-back Dan Parry added tries, the boot of Atkin­son im­prov­ing one. Atkin­son com­pleted a hat-trick, Jason Hard­ing and Adam Lown­des also cross­ing.
