PUBLISHED: 12:37 12 September 2012

Gordano travelled to Weston and came away with defeat against a resurgent second string side.

Weston Utd 39 pts

Gordano 12 pts

WITH eight regulars unavailable for a variety of reasons, Gordano Sharks were always going to find the trip to a resurgent Weston reserves a difficult proposition.

They trailed 13-7 at half-time, with a converted try by flanker Lee Worgan being their only reward for some great forward play.

In the second half, two sin bins were to cost the side a valuable away win. Weston showed a great deal of flair and were able to exploit the one-man advantage for a significant part of the half.

A cleverly worked move put stand in full-back Ben Care into a gap which he managed to capitalise upon to reach the line. This try gave the visitors some hope of coming home with something from the game. Eventually the Weston made their numerical advantage count and ran away winners.

Gordano will hope to return refreshed on Saturday when they entertain Old Reds at Caswell Lane.

Sharks 2nd team fought a hotly-contested match against Hornets and eventually shared the spoils at 10-10. This young side will hope to retain their unbeaten status next week when they also play Old Reds.

Gordano 3rds were runaway winners at Bristol Saracens with a thumping 58-7 victory.
