Lions maul sorry Spa
10:39am Thursday 31st October 2013 in Local
Stourbridge Lions 34, Droitwich 10
DROITWICH remain rooted to the bottom of Midlands Two West (South) table after they were outplayed by a classy Stourbridge Lions side.
The early exchanges were even but the hosts always looked dangerous with their slick off loading.
A period of pressure saw the forwards drive from a line-out before some weak defence by Spa allowed Stourbridge to crash over and score.
A strong forward drive saw Dean Goddard use his weight to touch down before the referee deemed the ball to have been knocked on.
This seemed to deflate the Spa side as Stourbridge immediately crashed over in the corner to extend their lead.
More questionable defence saw another try conceded, before Bob Scott-Walker kicked a penalty for Droitwich after good work by Ben Topping and Chris Oliver.
Back row forward Dave Ingram and 17-year-old replacement Dave Oliver did all they could to keep Spa in the hunt during the second half but the pacy backs of the home side were too much to handle and they ran in three more unasnwered tries before a good break by Greg MacLeod found Rean in support to score.
Droitwich will be hoping for better form at home to Dunlop on Saturday (3pm ko).
