Despite going behind by 10 points to 0 within 7 minutes of the start to a strong running Daventry, Park fought back with great tenacity to go in 10 – 6 behind at halftime, with two penalties from Fly Half Brandon Lewsey, before taking control of the second half to run out as worthy winners by 26-10. Despite the home side being reduced to 14 men with a red card, Park defended with great commitment and attacked with pace and skilful handling. Lock forward Jack Brooks was outstanding throughout well supported by his fellow forwards.
Early in the second half Lewsey added a further penalty to make the score 12 -9 to Daventry before Park took the lead with a well worked try for left wing Kyran Ryan. Park’s backs handling with skill to work the opening for Ryan. Jack Brooks then got on the score sheet with an excellent try, before Alfie Daly, playing in the centre, sliced through the now weary Daventry defence to finish off an excellent team try close to the posts. Lewsey added the extras. Only an adjudged forward pass in the last play of the game prevented Stockwood from also securing a try bonus point.
Park have made a very positive start to their League programme with 3 wins out of 3 and this Saturday return to Cup action with a second round tie against Huntingdon in the RFU Senior Vase at home, KO 2:30pm.
