Athletic gain revenge over Gordano
Weston Athletic defeated Gordano to gain revenge for a defeat earlier in the season.
WESTON Athletic were able to field a stronger side than in the previous meeting with Gordano earlier in the season and avenged a heavy defeat by winning 37-19.
Darran Wheatley’s made his 100th Athletic appearance and his son Tom was able to join his dad in the front row.
Gordano opened their account with a converted try. However, Weston hit back with a try by Jo McGrath. Further good work gave Filer an opportunity to cross for Weston’s second try under the posts. He converted his own try and Weston looked well positioned at 12-7 after the first quarter.
Weston kept up the pressure and following a penalty kick to touch and several drives by the forwards from the line-out, Craddock bullied his way over from close range.
