Great result and game.


Gordano picked up an important home bonus point win when they hosted chipping sodbury in a entertaining match. With lots of rain about in the build up to the game you would expect a low scoring game but both teams started brightly and after 15mins 4 trys had been scored. Gordano took the lead after Noah homes-McAdam sprinted thought a hole opened up my fly half Rowsell, conversion added by dyer. Sodbury hit back straight away to score in the corner but the conversation was missed. Gordano again were on the score sheet with second row Royce Chiddle powering over, this time the conversion was missed. Sodbury used their power runners again to get into the gordano 22 and another try out wide meet the score was 12-10. The game calmed down and there were no further scores in the half as both teams defences strengthen and cancelled each other out.

Gordano now had a stiff breeze at their backs and used it well to get some good feild positions, with gordano's defencive lineout all over sodbury gordano were making life very difficult for the away team. With a the pressure on sodbury is was no surprise when gordano added to their lead when stuart Harris broke though the line to score, conversion missed. Soon gordano were on the score board again as Sam hodge scored under the posts on his return from injury. Conversion added by hodge.
Gordano should have added to their try haul but poor decision in the red zone cost them dear as sodbury scored a break away try to bring the game back to with in 7 with 10 mins left to play. Gordano went on the attack and when sodbury gave a penalty away hodge stepped up to give gordano the buffer with only 2 mins left. Sodbury hadn't finished and went on the hunt for a last minute try which would give them 2 bonus points and they finally got their after countless attempts.

Final score 27-24. This was a good win for gordano who now move up to 9th in the league, next week in a trip into Gloucester to play chosen hill.
