Bow­don end Moor’s win­ning run

Stockport Express - - Sport - HEATON MOOR JC ....... 20 BOW­DON JNR COLTS .. 39

TER­ENCE MCGEE­HAN HEATON Moor Ju­nior Colts’ win­ning run was brought to a shud­der­ing halt as an im­pres­sive Bow­don side vis­ited Heatons Sports Club.

In a thor­oughly en­ter­tain­ing game the vis­i­tors took the spoils in a 39-20 vic­tory which owed much to their spec­tac­u­lar han­dling and run­ning game.

Two early tries set the tone in a whirl­wind first quar­ter, some breath­tak­ing rugby on view. Moor got a foothold in the sec­ond quar­ter. Fight­ing dis­plays by props De­clan McGee­han and Hasham Gon­dal and Man of the Match Tom Ea­ton re­sulted in James Mol­loy show­ing great tenac­ity with two tries but Bow­don hit back each time, leav­ing Moor be­hind at the break 20-10.

Moor started the sec­ond half brightly, an in­tel­li­gent break by scrum half Dom Raf­ferty send­ing Bob Berry away for a try to bring the deficit to five points.

Moor looked as though they had weath­ered the Bow­don storm.

How­ever, in the cru­cial mo­ment half­way through the sec­ond half, Moor over­turned when in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion, a rapid counter at­tack led to a try for Bow­don which was duly con­verted.

This was quickly fol­lowed by an­other as Bow­don pun­ished any mis­takes ruth­lessly.

Nick Ten­ney pulled a try back but in the end, it was no more than a con­so­la­tion as Bow­don fin­ished an­other flow­ing move to run out vic­tors by 39-20. The score line was pos­si­bly a lit­tle harsh on Heaton Moor but there could be no doubt­ing the class of their op­po­nents.

It’s a trip to Ec­cles next week as the boys at­tempt to get back to win­ning ways.
