Southport 3rdXV 22pts -
The youthful LSH 2nds made their best start of the season with fast slick handling to score in the first 2 minutes. Southport’s elders knew they were in for a match.
With tries raining in from all quarters, LSH went into the break 26 -
LSH came out strong again in the second half.
George Gates chasing a long kick along with three other LSH runners threatening the 'port winger into making an error and then George picking up the ball to carry over the line for a well deserved first try. Such desire to win was a real pleasure to see.
This was then followed up by debutant Jacob Webster at full back who crossed the whitewash with aplomb. An excellent debut for the colt.
At 38 -
LSH were able to hold in and take home a super result.

What a brilliant first 50 minutes from the lads a real pleasure to watch. Credit to young Tom McBride who at 6 mixed it up nicely with the old heads of Southport. A deserved man of the match.
All the team were excellent everyone worked for each other and the result reflected the strong teamwork.
