This was truly a fantastic end to the
line up of home games this season. Southport were set to be the
underdogs, as Dukinfield are at the top of the South Lancashire and
Cheshire League, Division 2 and Southport sat in sixth place, so all
ideas of an easy win for Southport at the start of the game were
next to none. However, within the first few passes, Southport scored
and the tone was set. By the end of the game Dukinfield had never
scored and Southport celebrated a 39 point victory.
The action was even more amazing as
Southport players dominated the game and took the league leaders by
surprise, with daring tries that came one after another. Sadly,
Southport only managed two conversions, but luckily by then, points
were not needed to win the game.
Try Scorers yesterday were:-
Janus Lamprecht 3
Shane Cook (Capt) 2
Gareth Lang 1
Ian Meyer 1
Conversions 2 by Ben Swinson
Shane Cook was voted man-of the match by sponsor Tom Cropper.
