SWANAGE & WAREHAM 8pts v WIMBORNE 10pts
In this semi final of the Dorset/Wilts cup, both sides put up a decent display, but overall it was a disappointing display from a decent crowd point of view.
In the first twenty minutes, a few penalties were conceded by both sides but a few minutes later a penalty to Wimborne brought them into Swans 22 and from a line out the ball was scrambled over the try line out wide to give the home team a 5pts lead. Swans then put pressure on the hosts try line and from a scrum on the Wimborne line, Swans scrum half Will Slack went over to equal the score after 30 minutes.
Half Time Wimborne 5pts Swans 5pts.
The second half was virtually no event as no side came close to scoring, with several injuries on each side interrupting the play, so we went into ten minutes each way of extra time.
In the 88th minute Swans were awarded a penalty and from 40 metres Swans fly half Steve Woolley slotted it over to give Swans a 5pts- 8pts lead. In the second half of extra time a penalty after 96 minutes put Wimborne into Swans 22 and after a series of penalties against Swans, eventually Wimborne scored a try in the last minute of the game out wide to give Wimborne a passage into the final against Salisbury, which will be played at Swans home ground at Bestwall on 30th April with a 3.00p.m. kick off.
