RUGBY: Minety 5 Melksham 5
6:00pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Latest Sport News
HONOURS were shared as Minety and Melksham met in an opening-day derby.
Minety enjoyed the majority of possession in the first half but early season errors saw them squander scoring opportunities, including a kickable penalty.
Melksham took a while to get into their stride but after half an hour, everything clicked as the forwards drove over and Phil Williams bundled over from a few metres out.
The home side got back on level terms in the second half when, gathering ball in his own 22, Minety’s Dale Langdown hoofed it back over the heads of his opponents and the home side harassed Melksham’s defence.
When the last defender failed to secure the ball, Luke Radcliffe was on hand to pile over the line.
