On a bright and crisp afternoon for rugby, Stockwood Park raced into a 12-0 lead in the first quarter at St Neots following a brilliant try in the first few minutes from league debutant, right wing Dan Corsey and an equally impressive team try scored by No 8 Ben Griffin in support of a good run from left wing Keiron Ryan. Brandon Lewsey added the extras. However, Park then succumbed to a constant barrage of strong running and support play from the home side whose overall performance belied their league position.
Although Park still lead by a slender 12-10 at halftime and continued to attack in the second half, St Neots defended powerfully and unfortunately Park’s defence proved more fragile as the home team mounted some strong attacks which produced them four further tries in the second half as they ran out comfortable winners.
Park now have two weeks to prepare for their next league fixture which is a home clash with local rivals Dunstablians RFC.
