A great Derby.
By Rob Huxley
One of the best team performances of the season.
This game was a real belter.
It didn't start that well however. Whitchurch actually began well, putting pressure on the home side. Shrewsbury however took their chances well and by the end of the first quarter they lead 1-0.
The second quarter was worse. It finished 4-0 to the home side, strangely we were not playing at all badly and the score felt very harsh. Surely at half time the game was over.......
Dougs scored early in the second half to begin the biggest comeback since Stallingrad. Dom scored two to make it 4-3 before Shrewsbury made it 5-3 at the end the third quarter.
The last quarter.
Charlie makes it 5-4, Shrewsbury score 6-4.
Whitchurch begin to dominate. The next five tries are for Whitchurch, via Charlie (2), Dom (hat trick !), Ed, Tom H and Ben Canney.
This was a great team performance. A brilliant win where every player stood up and wanted the win.
