The Chargers came into a tricky fixture against Stanningley with confidence high from their result against the Dearne Valley Bulldogs. With a couple of players having other commitments the chargers travelled with on 12 to make a difficult fixture that little bit more so.
The game started with completed sets from either team just getting a feel for the game, that was until the chargers took the lead with a try from Deivids Hagurs which was covered by Ethan Bradshaw. From the resulting kick off a lapse in concentration led to an offside being given and good field position to Stanningley.
As with any good team Stanningley didn’t need asking twice and took the points on offer with a converted try. That was it for points in the first half.
An easy half time team talk for the coach as the Chargers were doing everything right and knew, with more discipline and the wind in their favour, the second half could realistically be theirs. And so this proved to be with second half tries from Max Rawlinson, two from Jay Jessop and two from Ethan Bradshaw with Stanningley being pegged back to a single try.
Another fantastic second half from the Chargers and some very physical defence at times ensured the 32-10 victory was even sweeter. A special mention to parents man of the match and opposition man of the match Jay who had a fantastic game, Captain’s award for Max, top tackler Deivids and Coaches man of the match Cameron. Onwards and upwards for the Chargers after the some break could bring some very exciting time to North Derbyshire.
