Heysham Atoms 26pts vs 0pts Southport Storm

The Atoms had a forty minute break while Accrington and Southport played each other then it was the Atoms turn to lock horns with with the Storm of Southport in the final game of an entertaining afternoon.

Again the Atoms forwards gained control almost immediately from the start coming out of the blocks in determined fashion. Jack Lawton showed a good pair of heels to score the opener which was soon followed up by hooker Dan Helme who darted over., spotting a gap down the middle of the ruck. Chris Helme capped a fine performance forcing his way over for the Atoms third try and a 16 – nil lead.

Young Prop Dan Rodriguez was in lively form showing how much he has progressed this season with and without the ball. Fellow prop Tom O'Brian was also making his debut in Atoms colours and he ran strongly straight into the heart of the Southport defenders. In one such drive he got his arms free in the tackle to offload the ball and set the Atoms off on a sweeping attack down the right . The ball was passed back to the middle and Jason Short picked a great line to go under the posts. Jamie Cottle scored a fine, breakaway try to round off the Atoms scoring for the afternoon.

The Atoms hadnt had too much defending to do close to their own line during the two games but the last 10 minutes of this game was camped at their own end of the pitch. One of their targets was to keep the opposition scoreless in both games and this they achieved with great desire to defend their own line. This was only possible with excellent line speed and good technique and was just as pleasing to the coaching staff as the fluidity in attack, giving the Atoms a second victory by 26 points to nil.
