Hor­nets bat­tle hard but Sad­dle­worth prove too strong in semi-fi­nal

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

HFH U13 12 Sad­dle­worth U13 56 HOR­NETS locked horns with the un­de­feated Sad­dle­worth side in the Lan­cashire Cup semi-fi­nal and knew it would be a tough task.

Early er­rors gave Sad­dle­worth an 18-point lead be­fore Peter Scott’s cross­field kick was col­lected by Zac Mars­den to get the try with Scott con­vert­ing from the touch­line.

Sad­dle­worth crossed the white­wash just be­fore half-time for a 24-6 lead at the in­ter­val.

Hor­nets claimed the first score in the sec­ond half when El­liott Droogan touched down, his try suc­cess­fully con­verted by Char­lie Glover to get them right back in the game at 24-12.

But silly mis­takes on the first sets and turn­ing the ball over al­lowed Sad­dle­worth to run away with the game in the end as they tacked on 32 unan­swered points. The op­po­si­tion selected Peter Scott as Hor­nets’ man-of-the-match.
