WEST Park’s dominance, particularly in the first half, was worthy of a considerably

greater score than the the three tries they registered, but poor finishing at vital moments ruined some excellent support work.

The home side’s backs looked quicker and more decisive than the opposition, and a fine break by centre Warburton found fellow centre Hill in support who crossed for an unconverted try.

Within minutes of the restart Park’s backs expertly sliced through New Brighton’s

flimsy defence, full back Rosney coming into the line to feed winger Ainsworth who

fed on to fellow winger Appleton to score a try then converted by Ainsworth.

Strong running by centre Kal Warburton again opened up the visitor’s defence, and

although tacked he managed to get the ball away to stand off Basley to score Park’s

third try, Ainsworth converting to give a 19 point margin.

As half time approached the visitors got on the score sheet, their No 8 taking advantage of some some week tackling to score a try which was easily converted from under the posts.

The home side’s second half performance was not as impressive at their earlier efforts, and over elaboration resulted in too many mistakes and obvious frustration.

Continued pressure eventually paid off however and a fine try catch and 25 metre run by second row Lewis Harris gave supporting prop Martin Kimberley a try wide out which was expertly converted by Ainsworth giving the home side the desired and necessary maximum league points.

Next week West Park travel to top of the table Broughton Park for a difficult fixture, but one which with resolve, desire and necessary commitment they can perhaps look to upset the odds.
