CALDY edged a tight affair at Paton Field against Hull with scrum half James Smith getting the vital try and then some stubborn defence by the home side keeping the visitors at bay for the last 10 minutes.
Caldy could not have started the game any better after Jack Parker powered over the line with only two minutes on the clock. Vasey kicked the difficult conversion. After 10 minutes, Greg Lound kicked a penalty for the visitors and again after 35 minutes to reduce the difference to two points. On the stroke of half time, Caldy number eight JJ Dickinson found space out wide and evaded two tacklers before skipping under the posts. Vasey again converted.
The second half saw both sides cancelling each other out in the tight and was littered with numerous handling errors.
Hull had a purple patch at the start of the half with a penalty from the boot of Lound and Hull followed it up on 45 minutes with a well taken try from winger Robinson who found space to scamper over the whitewash. Lound missed the conversion.
Replacement scrum half James Smith used all his strength to edge Caldy ahead with a try on 55 minutes and then some remarkable and resilient defence by the home side in the last 10 minutes proved enough for Caldy to grab four points.
