Stockwood Park extended their winning start to the season with their 5th successive victory in League and Cup rugby when they demolished Huntingdon in the second round of the RFU Senior Vase competition by 59 points to 0 in an excellent exhibition of running rugby by their young and speedy backs, all built on rock solid defence in all areas.
Former Colt No 8 Will Bennett had a field day, scoring 4 tries with some powerful running from the base of the scrum. Speedy left wing Kyran Ryan scored two tries of his own with further tries from centre Alfie Daly, scrum half Frank Daly and finally by Fly Half Brandon Lewsey who also kicked 7 conversions to give him a total of 19 points in the game.
Park led 33-0 at halftime, with Bennett already having scored a hat trick of tries and maintained their pressure to the end. Huntingdon were not helped by disruptions caused by injury but they were never able to withstand the confident and skilful team performance by Park.
Stockwood Park now entertain Rushden & Higham RFC this Saturday in their next league fixture, a game which will be played in front of 100 former players who will gather for a pre match lunch.
Park’s 2nd XV , not to be outdone by the 1st XV, defeated a Bedford Athletic XV by 47 – 0 , also at home.
