CALDY played some excellent rugby in their latest National Two North encounter but failed to register a win against a well drilled Darlington Mowden Park side in the Northern Echo Arena.
Mowden Park’s excellent winger Chris McTurk was the difference between the two sides as he notched a hat-trick in an excellent all round performance.
Mowden Park opened the scoring on three minutes with a penalty from the boot of fly half Hodgson.
Caldy hit straight back after the kick off as the ball was spun wide to JJ Dickinson on the wing, who touched down for a try.
Vasey failed to convert.
Mowden Park then played some superb rugby as McTurk scored a quick fire brace either side of a penalty from Hodgson.
Vasey kicked a penalty on the stroke of half time to leave the scores at the break 16-8 to Mowden Park.
After the break, Caldy dominated for twenty minutes but were repeatedly thwarted by a fantastic home defence with at least two try saving tackles made in short succession.
Despite their dominance, Caldy did not increase their points tally and were caught on the counter attack as a fine break saw the ball fed to hooker Fagalilo, who scored out wide.
Hodgson kicked another penalty before McTurk completed his hat-trick with an interception try.
Caldy had some notable performances including Dave Jones, Craig Smithson and the Man of the Match Peter Doolan.
This coming weekend, Caldy face Sheffield Tigers at home (kick off 3pm).
