U13's Roar late on after lacklustre start

24/02/19

Panthers U13's produce 24 unanswered points in a second half comeback to open their 2019 campaign with a win

Chorley Panthers U13's travelled to Widnes St Maries in what was to be their first competitive fixture of 2019. The build up to the game was not ideal with the 21 man Panthers squad having an available roster of 19 on Thursday for the away fixture which suddenly dropped to 15 in the following 72 hours. The team took the field with a number of players taking on roles that were slightly unfamiliar and that showed on the tight Widnes pitch in the first 25 minutes. Widnes opened the scoring with a fine individual effort from their right centre before Panthers responded with a Jake Bolton score and Andrew Wilding converting. Still not at the races the Panthers struggled to find any rhythm and to their credit St Maries kept turning the screw before another score right on the half time whistle saw the home team go in 12-6 in front. Half Time was an opportunity for the Panthers to regroup with a few stern words on how attitude and desire could turn the game in their favour if they were prepared to dig in and apply themselves to the task at hand. Early on in the second half the Panthers levelled the score at 12 -12 after a great effort from Deacon Swarbrick and that appeared to be the turning point as the White and Blacks went up a gear in the final 15 minutes with further scores from Wilding, Swarbrick and Sherrington, all of which were converted by the red hot boot of Wilding. Liptrott and Cardoza had a strong influence on the game throughout and both put in great defensive efforts, whilst all 4ft 2" of Joe Latham made a superb one on one tackle against comfortably the biggest player on the pitch to save a certain Widnes try late on in the game. To score 24 unanswered points in the second half was a significant improvement on the first 25 minutes but the Widnes outfit must be credited with a great effort throughout and they certainly won't be the easiest team to play at their home venue for any visiting opposition. Next week the U13's are at home to Bank Quay Bulls and further improvement will be required if the Panthers want to produce a better performance and show what they are really capable of.
