SEAHAM seconds enjoyed a 28-5 win against Seaton Carew in a fine, free-flowing game.
Seaton enjoyed most of the possession during the early stages of the first half, as Seaham continuously delivered scrappy ball to the backs, particularly from line-outs.
The visitors’ pressure paid off as their number eight rumbled over for a try wide out for a 5-0 lead.
Seaham’s forwards eventually began to dominate the breakdowns and with five minutes of the half left, Seaham hooker Dean Armstrong took a strike against the head and the ball was fed out by Brad Green.
Fly-half Jack McCallum made a brilliant break from just inside the visitors’ half and rounded the Seaton fly-half and full-back before touching down under the posts. Green’s conversion gave Seaham a 7-5 lead.
Early in the second half John Dye spotted a gap and ran from near the halfway line, brushing off a couple of defenders before scoring under the posts. Green’s second conversion of the day stretched the lead to 14-5.
Slick handling along the back line allowed Hardie to show great pace, beating a couple of defenders before eventually being tackled by the opposition full-back.
However, he showed great vision to offload to Davison, who sold a dummy and went through under the posts.
Green nailed his third conversion of the day to take the score to 21-5.
From the restart, Seaham maintained the pressure.
Once again, with the hosts camped in the visitors’ 22, John Dye showed excellent vision and made good ground from a clean break. He then offloaded to veteran Henry Brace, who demonstrated remarkable pace for his years to finish off under the posts.
Green’s fourth conversion of the day completed the scoring.
