Dave’s treble puts Hawcoat Park in Wynning position
Last updated at 16:48, Monday, 10 December 2012
A HAT-TRICK of tries from Dave Wynn ensured Hawcoat Park A put winning points in the bag in this South and East Division encounter.
The encounter, however, saw Carlisle 3rds lead 14-7 at one stage.
Hawcoat opened the scoring in the 10th minute when, from a lineout on the halfway line. Scrum half Adam Williamson launched two kicks, the latter falling into the goal area, where supporting wing forward Vial pounced on the ball to touch down, with Williamson adding the extras.
Carlisle came back to level the scores and went seven points ahead in the 25th minute after scoring under the posts and adding the conversion.
Vial added his second try in the 28th minute when, following a break from the Hawcoat 22, Matt Forrester kicked ahead for the wing forward to pounce. Williamson was successful again with his kick, this time from the touchline.
Wynn, who was showing up well with strong running and tackling in the centre berth for Hawcoat, scored an excellent try in the 30th minute for 19-14.
Good play from the forwards and backs soon after the break saw Wynn go under the posts for his second try. Again Williamson was successful with his kick.
The best try of the game arrived five minutes from time when industrious wing Odandi, who had been carrying out some fine defensive work throughout the whole of the game for Hawcoat, showed great attacking ability.
Following good passing in the backs, he stretched out to score in the corner with two defenders tackling him for 31-14.
Carlisle came back two minutes later with a try following some pressure on the home line, and the conversion made it 31-21.
Good driving work by Hawcoat’s forwards was rewarded in the 79th minute when fast-running wing forward Vial broke the Carlisle back line to supply Wynn, who ran hard for the corner to score a fine third try. Williamson put a fine touchline conversion between the posts for 38-21.
Hawcoat played well throughout the team with captain Martin Kennedy leading by example with some fine lineout ball and being well supported in loose play with some good driving runs by Roberts, Morgan, Kent and Vial.
Brad Dean’s game improves each time he puts the maroon and white shirt on.
The backs also looked useful with Winfield putting in some penetrating runs at stand off.
Rob Blackburn had a steady game at full-back and Dan Heys had a good afternoon getting involved on the wing.
The pitch was again in fine fettle considering the amount of rain during the week and helped in a good 80 minutes of endeavour from both teams.
Hawcoat Park’s first team match at Carlisle was called off because of an unfit pitch.
