Biggleswade 36 Stockwood Park 14

Although Spring was in the air on a warm and sunny afternoon at Biggleswade, there was no spring in Stockwood Park’s step as they were given a comprehensive lesson in taking your scoring chances by the home team. Park were lack lustre and muddled in their decision making, consistently being turned over as promising moves began to take shape. Any gains in territory that were made were usually countered by some accurate and quality tactical kicking by the Biggleswade Fly Half.

Park were soon behind when the home team opened the scoring with a converted try before centre Brandon Lewsey, a constant threat, latched onto an interception and sprinted 40 metres to score. Lewsey converted his own try. Biggleswade quickly responded with a further converted try and took the score to 24-7 with another converted try and penalty after half an hour. Just before halftime Park gave themselves a chance of recovery with a well worked try scored by acting Captain and Hooker Tom Childs. Lewsey added the extras.  24-14 to the home team at halftime.

In the second half Biggleswade went further ahead with two more tries and one conversion from their fly half who only missed one kick at goal throughout the game.  The final score was a disappointing 36-14 to Biggleswade who were deserving winners.  Park now have two home league games to finish their season. Daventry this Saturday KO 3pm and the rearranged fixture with Bedford Queens under floodlights on Thursday April 26th  KO 7.30pm.
