Colts rally too little too late

Weston Colts travelled up the M5 for this league encounter against Gordano with a full squad but still lost a close game that showed that there is hope of claiming a victory or two in the near future.
Westons problem has been for all the games this season that they start and end generally well it's the bit in the middle that's the problem.
Weston again started strongly and were on top in the opening encounters but it was Gordano who nearly went ahead when only a great tackle by Weston full back Tyran Burnley prevented the home left wing from scoring. Although the game was pointless fly half Archie Tilsley missed a straight forward penalty attempt to give Weston a lead they probably deserved.
However it wasn't to be and Gordano countered and only a bad bounce of the ball prevented them from scoring.
Shortly after this a break by flanker aarik gregory was carried on by winger Josh Cook and number eight Charlie Owens and the home side infringed. From the resultant penalty Cook was bundled into touch on the line but Weston increased the pressure and it was eventually rewarded when Tilsley opened the scoring with a penalty.
Gordano hit back immediately and scored the first try of the game following a forward drive. This proved to be the last points of the first half.
The second half began with the old problems of lack of concentration and commitment that have dogged the Colts all season.
After a battling first half the team rested on their laurels for a good twenty minutes to allow their hosts four tries in quick succession to put them twenty two points to the good. Weston then reawakened first through scrum half Dan Press who once again was outstanding throughout and then a Tilsley cross kick was gathered by centre Henry Cox to cut the lead to eight points following two successful conversions by Tilsley. However it was not enough and Gordano ran out deserved winners for a full eighty minute display rather than Westons selective performance.
Special mention for full back Tyran Burnley whose commitment to the cause saved at least four tries on the day.
