Bridgefield Blues 16 - Warrington 9

The senior team played their second game of the season against last years runner up in the Liverpool & District League, Bridgefield Blues who are the best team of the two Bridgefield teams and currently play in Divisdion 3 of the National League. We had many players away on holiday but had a strong first 7 with two young substitutes Rory Gregson (16) and Josh Regan (15).

Warrington started well with three excellent goals including a Tom Hadley back hander from the pit position which left the keeper with no chance the execution being world class. Bridgefield got two goals back but Warrington were certainly the better team in the first quarter.

The second quarter saw some sloppy passing by Warrington and an organised well drilled Bridgefield took advantage and their strength in depth started to tell. At the end of the second quarter Warrington trailed 7-5.

The third quarter saw Warrington go further behind despite Neil Musgrove saving a penalty at the end of the quarter Warrington trailed 12-6. In the final quarter Warrington rallied with two goals from Andy McGinty and a third goal from James Williams but ended loosing the match 16-9.

In the after match debrief it was agreed that the lack of depth in our team and a lack of match fitness compared to Bridgefield who had just arrived back from a training camp were the big difference between the teams. Scorers were James Williams 3, Andy McGinty 3, Bryn Edwards 1, Tom Hadley 1, Tom Cart 1.
