LIVERPOOL ST HELENS 17 WEST PARK 18
This much awaited local derby in the Lancashire ADM Premier League, played in front of a sizeable and passionate crowd, most certainly did not disappoint. In every aspect, except the final score, it was an even game.
The scores were level at half time, 3-
LSH winger Sam Walker broke the deadlock after 56 minutes, just reaching out to the line following a fine run, followed by a touchline conversion from Wood. 10-
LSH, for whom full back Matty Johnston had a fine game throughout, then found themselves on the back foot for the remainder of the game. West Park inspired by the introduction of Mauire Faasavalu for his second stint, gradually worked their way back into contention. With time running out centre John Pape carved his way through the LSH defence to send in Lee Daniel for a converted score 17-
LSH appeared to be holding on until deep into time added on, a disastrous fumble on their own line led to West Park gaining unexpected possession and the ball was swung left for the winning try from Jack Holland.
LSH’s game at Widnes this weekend is now on Friday night (8th) KO 7.30
