Weston Under-13s ran out comfortable winners against a much larger Gordano team.
Weston Under-13s entertained Gordano at the Rec and again the lads were clearly lacking in the size department compared the larger Gordano pack, but emerged 60-20 winners.
Gordano started quickly and showed their class with a slick move from the pacy centre to break the line and progress upfield.
Weston’s defence scrambled well and kept the visitors out and after an impressive turnover by Ben Donachie under his own posts, Weston moved the ball quickly between winger Mckenzie Appleton and full-back Ben Crook for the latter to touch down.
Gordano continued to impress through their sizeable forwards, but Weston’s impressive front row of Will Bamsey, Alfie Parsons and Brennan held firm.
A solid tackle and surge from Sam Slingsby led to Weston’s second try with again slick handling from Weston’s backline with Henry Ward, Appleton and Crook combining to set up Parsons to score a great team try.
A third try came almost straight from the kick-off after good work by Rowan Bird, Archie, Harry and Tom Collard, with Ben White scoring in the corner.
Crook went over for his second try of the game and further impressive interplay between forwards and backs saw Bamsey score from 20 metres out.
After the break, great defence by Slingsby and Donachie kept Gordano out. Further surges upfield by Dan Duffill and Weston were on the attack again. However, the ball was turned over and Gordano kicked downfield. Crook fielded the ball around his own 22 and raced upfield to score a great individual try.
Two more scores were finished by Crook, but only after Donachie, Roman Osborne, Jay Issac and Zion Cozens created the space for Crook.
Another try for Will Bamsey, similar to the first and Parsons again getting on the end another great move saw him notch up his second of the day.
With the game won Weston seemed to take the foot of the pedal and Gordano capitalised by scoring four tries.
