Boro lose due to bad be-Pavior

Boro entertained Paviors in another Midlands 1 East clash

A tough encounter this week saw Boro entertain Paviors for the first time in a few seasons. A few changes were made to the side after the Kettering team. Weather conditions this week saw a strong wind across the pitch this week

1st Half
Paviors kicked off and straight away Kieran Checkley was put into space but the Paviors defence soon snuffed out the attack. The opening quarter saw both sides test each other out. The first score came after Paul Lambert carried the ball up hard with Kieran Checkley carrying on the momentum, a quick ruck saw Ben Taylor break down the blindside to offload to Pete Vickers to score the try (Boro 5v0 Paviors). The conditions weren't conducive to open rugby although the forwards from Boro managed to engineer a couple of breaks but the final pass went astray. Boro's frustration started to take a hold and a series of silly penalties saw Paviors awarded with a couple of penalties to give themselves the half time lead

Boro 5v6 Paviors

2nd Half
The second half saw Boro playing down the hill but Paviors started the half well and it took some good defence to prevent any scores. As the half progressed Boro upped their speed and intensity and as a result started to combine phases together which culminated in an attack right up to the Paviors try line but to no avail. The remainder of the half saw a lot of bluster from both sides with both teams making elementary mistakes in attack allowing the defensive side to clear their lines. For Boro the keenness to get the victory saw too many penalties conceded and finally this took its toll with Paviors scoring a try at the end of the game to win

Boro 5v11 Paviors

The next two games see Boro on the road to the two furthest away destinations but both are winnable matches although both will be very tough. However, there is a steely glint in the players eyes to right the wrongs of the last two weeks but this needs to be combined with better decision making and execution for any success to be acquired
