Having started the season a couple of weeks ago with a win against Ipswich YM, Fakenham, Fakenham through a combination of holiday, injuries and stag nights were unable to put out their full regular 1st team for this match against West Norfolk.
The game started brightly for Fakenham and, after five minutes of fairly solid possession, Lloyd Marshal was awarded a penalty for a late tackle, which he converted. West came back very quickly and pressed on the home teams line resulting in another penalty to level the scores after just 10 minutes. The stalemate was broken soon after as West went ahead after a lovely timed pass that saw the number 8, Williamson, dash 20 meters to score under the posts for a converted try.
Fakenham puled themselves together and forced their way with some good running into the West half and soon the scores were level again when Murray Tindal, after a dropped pass by West, hacked through, and, as he tried to gather the bouncing ball, was tackled resulting in a penalty try beig awarded to Fakenham.
