NORTHUMBERLAND SENIOR SHIELD
PERCY PARK LIONS 68 - 29 SEGHILL
It's been a busy old week for the Lions. On Wednesday night, Park welcomed Seghill in a No2 cup semi final and then on Saturday, Billingham Lions provided the opposition in a Candy Plate semi-final.
In both fixtures, Park assembled a senior side i.e. no colts, with our outstanding youngsters focusing on their own cup game at Berwick.
In the Seghill game, Park started at a fast pace, hoping to run the enthusiasm out of the visitors. However, Seghill had other ideas, the first 40 minutes were very keenly contested with only a score separating the two sides. Park then blitzed their opponents at the beginning of the second half, eventually winning 68-29. It was a very entertaining game and despite the score-line a close contest. Park now play Morpeth in final at Ponteland on 25th March KO 2pm.
