LUCTONIANS made it back-to-back victories and scored six tries with a 38-26 win on the road at Blaydon in National League 2 North.

The visitors brushed aside the 260-mile journey and the fact they were playing into a strong wind coming out of the blocks fast scoring 14 unanswered points inside 25 minutes thanks to two close range Owien Harriott-Davis scores, both converted by Owen Randell.

However, Lucs then seemingly believed the job was done as they relaxed and allowed two scoring opportunities in ten minutes, both duly taken by Phil Brantingham and Ethan Clarke. Successful conversions from Nathan Horsfall meant the scores were all tied up with 37 minutes gone.

However, man of the match Randell, then reaffirmed Lucs lead, with a spectacular 60-metre solo effort, which the scrum half would also convert to take Lucs in with a slender 14-21 lead at the break.

The North Herefordshire side began the second period strongly physically dominating their opponents, and the pressure told as flanker Jack Forsythe and hooker Ben Link both went over for unconverted scores to take the lead out to 31-14 with 55 minutes played. What should have been a comfortable last 20 minutes or so was made a little less so for Lucs as Ethan Hall-Lyon’s score on 63 minutes and flanker Sam Jones’s yellow card on 70 minutes, meant the visitors entered the final ten minutes with a ten point lead but down a man numerically.

Centre Ben Owen finished off the contest however, as he went over with Randell knocking over the extras.
