Evesham’s wait for a first home win of the season continued with a defeat 5-17 to Hereford on Saturday, January 14.

It was an end-to-end encounter with both sides having plenty of chances to score.

But it was the visitors who broke the deadlock, with Jack Goodwin picking up a loose ball before dashing 60 yards to score the opening try after 19 minutes, Connor Sullivan adding the extra points.

Before half-time Evesham got on the scoresheet but were unable to convert.

Hereford’s pack proved dominant in the second half, winning a number of set scrums and lineouts against the throw.

Sullivan extended the Wyesider’s lead with a penalty goal with 25 mintues left to play.

The away side then sealed the win in the final minute as Tom Williams intercepted a loose pass to charge over the line, Sullivan once again successful with the conversion to take the final score to 5-17.

Evesham remain second bottom in the Regional 2 West Midlands division, with just one win to their name in the 22/23 campaign.
