A cool sunny morning saw Eccles host Bolton with 9 Eccles players facing 15 from Bolton.
Five minutes into the game Bolton scored their first try of the game. Eccles continued to dig deep with some great passing and rucking from Eccles players who then passed the ball out to Calvin who scored two great tries. Eccles continued to shown some great defensive play, the ball is passed to Ernie who scores Eccles 3rd try. Bolton continue to push forward and score two tries to equalise. Eccles 3 – Bolton 3.
Some good play by Luca saw the ball five yards before the try line before being taken into touch. Bolton make headway to Eccles try line. Several great defensive plays from Nick, Matthew, Ernie, Evan and Annie before Bolton eventually score a try. Eccles then show determination as the ball is quickly passed to Calvin who equalised the score.
Bolton continue to push forward and score three more tries to the disbelief of Eccles spectators. The refs decision is final! Eccles 4 – 7 Bolton.
Two minutes left Eccles battle hard as the ball is passed safely through everybody’s hands before Calvin scores another try. One minute remaining Eccles battle hard to gain possession of the ball before the final whistle blows.
