Spirited performance from Gordano

Gordano came away pointless at home to Midsomer Norton, but put in another spirited performance.

Gordano took on unbeaten Midsomer Norton at Caswell Lane and came away pointless, even though the game was in the balance until the last play of the game.

Norton started the game with a bang and score two tries before Gordano could get their hands on the ball.

It looked like it could be a long afternoon for the Sharks but they never let their heads drop and once they got the ball they weren’t going to give it up easily.

Gordano finally started to put pressure on Norton and it didn’t take long until the Sharks were on their line and looking for their first try of the afternoon and it came from Jack Thomas who finished off what was a great team try.

His second try was purely down to himself and Jack burst though and had enough power to drive over the line to score under the posts and a simple two points for Dyer to bring the game back to 12-14.

Norton finished the half strongly and were camped in the Gordano 22 for the last 10 minutes, but stout defence kept Norton from the try line and in this period they only had three points to show for their efforts.

The second half was an even contest with both teams having opportunities to score, but it was Norton who kept the score ticking over with seven points from a try in the corner.

Noah Homes McAdam was on the end of another fine team play to bring the Sharks to with in seven points. With time running out, both teams were hunting the bonus point fourth try and painfully for Gordano it was Norton who scored it with the last play of the game.

It was another spirited performance by Gordano, who are learning quickly that in this higher league you will get punished by your mistakes. In the last two weeks Gordano have come up against top of the league sides and have scored tries against them and have been in the matches right up till the end which they can take great confidence from.

On Saturday, Gordano take the short journey to Failand to play Old Bristolians, who have also only won once this season (3pm).
