Fylde Hawks started their Hambro Premier Division campaign in excellent fashion with a toughly fought 15-24 victory at Blackburn RUFC 2nds.
The 1st half was rather scrappy with Blackburn starting the better. The Hawks dug in, scored a couple of converted tries and led by 10-14 at the interval.
They kicked on in the 2nd half, scored a couple more tries to Blackburn’s one and ran out deserved winners, picking up a 4 try bonus point in the process.
The Hawks tries were scored by hooker Pantelis Stylianou, centre George Brookes and a brace by scrum-half Kyle McCauley. Fly-half David Reed converted two of the tries.
The Hawks Coach Dominic Moon said: “This was a great team performance, full of high energy and commitment from all the players. There were stand out performance from numerous players but Kyle McCauley shaded it for me.”
The Hawks have a home game against Lymm 2nds at the Woodlands next Saturday, 18th Sept (ko 3pm).
