Peterlee took on top of the table Featherstone who had beaten 4th placed Woolston by 80 points the previous week and arrived at Helford Road unbeaten all season.
The Pumas are now a much improved side and have been unlucky not to win on the last 3 run outs. The pumas pack were on top for most of the game and won most collisions although they do need to speed up the play the ball area to take more advantage of their advantage in this part of the field to set their fast backs away. Outside and defensively they were exposed however as the quick play of the ball even when they lost the collision gave Featherstone the ability to shift the ball to the edges and take advantage of the Pumas vulnerability there.
Kieran Redfern opened the scoring in the 4th minute for Featherstone, followed by Ricky Williams 12 minutes later, Williams in the left centre position scored again on the 25th minute but not until Former Pumas junior player Sean Mason, a second rower playing on the wing crossed on the end of a good shift wide left taking a 15m pass from prop John Malcolm. Williams who was unlucky not get man of the match crossed again on the 35th minute and then Danny Glasson went in a minute later, Rich Frankland kicked all of the Featherstone goals most from the touchline to make the half time score 30 points to 4 at the break.
6 minutes into the second half and Glasson got his second and Featherstone man of the match Davi Galahan crossed on the 51st minute. Peterlee hit back through second rower James Scott playing his first game of the season going over close to the ruck and then 5 minutes later, centre Andrew Docherty went over on the end of a shift wide right which was converted by fullback Leigh Wheatley. The last 10 minutes were disappointing for the Pumas as at 14 42 a good competitive game would have been reflected but lack of concentration from the home side allowed Williams, Josh Wallace and Frankland to score again to take the score to 60 14. The Pumas have made massive steps forwards this season, still some way to go but a good performance against the divisions top side. Pumas man of the match, hooker Jack Adamson.
2 weeks off from the league now, next game home to second placed Underbank Rangers 19th July although the Pumas A team are due to play Winlaton on the 12th July at home.
