Match Reports

Morpeth won through to the Candy Cup final with a hard-fought victory against a strong Percy Park outfit who pushed them all the way. That said, the better side took the spoils and the home side deserved to win.

It was a game that took place,' over the road,' due to the poor weather but a good crowd enjoyed a competitive semi-final played out in an exceptionally strong wind. Park had the elements with them in the first 40 minutes yet Morpeth with their forwards heavily reliant on Donnelly, Dickinson, Menzies and Number 8 Clark, kept matters tight with frequent forward drives. It was from one such incursion into Park's 22 when the ball was released wide for a potential home score only for Park to intercept a Morpeth try scoring pass then run the length of the field for a score of their own. 0-5.

This did not deter the home side who came back with a score of their own on 15 minutes when centre Bentley Brown crashed over after Donnelly had made the crucial break. Impressive full back Smith added the extras. 7-5.

Then Grieve expertly put right wing Tom Lakey into space for the right wing to step his way to the line from 60 metres out. Again, Smith added the extras.14-5 on 25 minutes.

But Park were not to be outdone and from a quickly taken penalty scored a converted try before the interval. 14-12 half-time score.

Despite being against the elements Park took the lead when backs and forwards combined forcing the home side to concede a well struck penalty. 14-15.

The remainder of the game was mostly played in the Park half, with the home side sealing victory when, from a close-range scrum Clark's pace saw him shatter the remaining Park defence to crash over for another converted try. 21-15.

Park were not to be outdone and were a constant threat, but the home side held out, making it through to a final against Northern Wanderers.
