FIRSTS COMPETE WELL BUT FALL SHORT
LSH ruthlessly punish Southport mistakes. Welcome to Level 7!
The Firsts succumbed to their first defeat in nearly twelve months going down 12-45 to league leaders LSH. However there was no disgrace in losing to a team they more than matched for periods of the game, but missed opportunities, poor game management and lapses in defence enabled the oppositions powerful fast-running backs to run in several opportunistic tries.
A superb take from a cross field kick by Charlie Attis by Tom Peacock and a powerful drive by Sam Cross converted by Attis were scant reward but non-the-less enjoyed by the large Southport following who were warmly welcomed by LSH President Ray French and his colleagues.
