Paterson River Football Club has gained a lot of momentum now with three straight wins – it seems like no one has a shot at defeating them.
West Wallsend was no different, with Paterson smashing them in a glorious 46-8 win last Saturday at Les Wakeman Oval.
West Wallsend kicked off and within three minutes, off the back of two penalties, Tyrone Smith scored for Paterson.
Another five minutes later, with a well-rehearsed back line move from the back row, Chris Walters ran over with a try and leaving the score at 10-0.
West Wallsend had their turn to score after a 20 minute arm wrestle, scoring in the thirtieth minute setting the score at 10-6.
With two minutes remaining in the half West Wallsend were awarded a penalty kick and with a successful goal took the score to 10-8 for half time.
Paterson were quick to capitalise on West Wallsend’s 12 man side after they had a player sent off before half time with Grant Jackson scoring through good completion and great ball security.
Captain Ricky Balcombe was next in line to score in the fiftieth minute raising the lead to 20-8.
Buddy Roberts was next to score after the ball travelling through the hands of the whole back line before Buddy sent it over the line.
Ricky Balcombe soon scored another two tries to bring up a hat trick and the score at 36-8.
Dean Jones was able to split the defence and offload to willing supporters and eventually Peter Wells scoring a well-deserved try bringing the score to 40-8.
Dean Jones’ explosive plays paid off in the last two minutes scoring a try next to the post giving Grant “The Boot” Jackson an easy kick to finalise the score at 46-8.
Lock Josh Papworth was tireless and relentless in both attack and defence and was a clear winner in the players’ player vote.
Halves Darrin Smith and Dylan Jenkins capitalised on the very enthusiastic forward pack’s effort, to execute their jobs perfectly, which led to the extended score line.
Paterson River would like to thank West Wallsend for their hospitality and a game played in true rugby league spirit.
Paterson River’s next game will be played at Lynn Oval at Stockton at 2pm.
