Rochdale 3rd 0 v Eccles 3rd 29 16/03/2013

The thirds travelled up to Rochdale having to make a few changes and despite the pre match schedule feeling disorganised once the team hit the pitch the players were focused on the task in hand tackling with ferocity to nullify any home attempts at taking the advantage .It was Eccles who grabbed the first try with back row Stuart Greaves forcing his way over after good attacking play with Thompson converting. Slick handling created space and time and Nick Hageman doing the honours to add a second with Thompson adding the extras. A third would have certainly followed but for knock interception by the home defence and Eccles cialis soft tabs online had to thank so good tackling especially two last ditch efforts from Chattington to reach the interval 14-0 ahead . Early in the second period Eccles seized the initiative with a kick ahead from Chattington being chased down by winger Danny Rice to score in the corner.It continued to be a tough encounter but a penalty from Thompson gave Eccles a bit of breathing space before Hageman conclusively sealed matters outpacing the home defence to touchdown first in a race for long kick ahead with Thompson again convering. A splendid team effort in becoming the first side to not concede against Rochdale 3rds on their on midden this league term .
