Your News Warriors take ugly win at Southwold

FEB

Woodbridge squeezed home versus at a misty Southwold in a tightly contested League match, holding on to take the points despite a determined second half rally by the home team, including a last minute penalty miss which would have tied the match.

After ten minutes of loose midfield play a chip through by Woodbridge’s Adrian Sanday, which initially looked speculative given the overlap available, was fumbled by Southwold’s winger allowing Donovan Steward to score. Woodbridge looked in control and more points seemed imminent. These came when John Yorke took three before narrowly missing with two further kicks from central (albeit deep) positions. At half time, and with an 8 point lead which could easily have been 20, a comfortable Warrior win looked in the offing.

Southwold however, had other ideas and took the game to Woodbridge. Working the blind side they retained the ball well, and across the park seemed sharper to react after the tackle, their fresh faced seven particularly impressive. In the backs, the Southwold play maker at ten looked sharp, and repeatedly brought in the blindside winger. Apart from two brief forays into the opposition half when tries went begging Woodbridge were on the defensive, surviving wave after wave of attack. Stubborn defence was the order of the day and, whilst generally up to the task, the line was finally breached making for a nervous last quarter.

Final score: Southwold 5 - Woodbridge Warriors 8
