SWANAGE & WAREHAM 33pts NORTH DORSET 25pts



Swanage & Wareham continued their winning form as they welcomed North Dorset to Bestwall last Saturday.

The game started with a couple of penalties to each side, with one by Steve Woolley for Swans after 9 minutes and one to North Dorset 3 minutes later. Woolley put Swans further ahead with his second and third penalties making the score 9pts – 3pts after 20 minutes. 5 minutes later Swans conceded a catch /drive by the visitors to take them to 8pts. On 35 minutes a move along Swans three-quarters to winger Sam Bowen had him scoring half way out. Woolley added the extras meaning the half time score was Swans 16pts North Dorset 8pts.

Five minutes into the second half, Swans were in the North Dorset 22, when a North Dorset winger intercepted a pass by Swans, he raced 80 metres to score a try close to the posts. This was converted(16pts – 15pts). North Dorset went ahead with a penalty after 50 minutes, but Swans soon took the lead again with a try by centre Leon Esera out wide.(21pts- 18pts). Just after the hour mark a move by Swans backs out to winger Sam Bowen who cut inside to score close to the posts. Woolley converted(28pts – 18pts). Swans were on top and it was no surprise that with 5 minutes left on the clock another move by the three –quarters had Sam Bowen going in for his hat-trick of tries. Woolley converted (33pts – 18pts). In overtime Swans conceded a penalty to the corner flag, and with the last move of the game North Dorset powered over the line with a catch/drive move. This was converted leaving the score Swanage & Wareham 33pts North Dorset 25pts.
