Rochford, a great success!

Well what a fantastic day yesterday was. The under 14's played some fantastic games of rugby. Having a lot of confusions at the start with many teams combining or not showing up. We ended up combining with Boadacia's, who supplied 3 of our team and fitted in really well, naturally filling the spaces left. As the games unravelled and the girls became more confident with each other the standard of play improved dramatically.

The girls all did really well putting in some excellent tackles. Despite initial fears the girls powered to success over Hertford who apparently all had only been playing a few weeks. With one of the tries scored by Vicky! and one near miss when Laura dropped a ball close to the line.

The next game was the match the girls didn't want (we did try to avoid it too) but we faced Welwyn for who we were their fourth opponents in a row!

However after an early try scored, we were level at half time with Hayley converting a Bodecia try. Another try in the second half put us ahead, but Welwyn fought back and were denied a couple of times. So Letchworth hung on to the victory! Final score 12-7! What ever was said after the game by Welwyn we were a mainly Letchworth side and we played a better game on the day and deserved the win. This was a great success for the whole team and boosted spirits. It shows that with determination you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Here are some pictures that were taken by Natalie's dad. (Thanks)

With one more game against a very old looking team, the day was a success whatever the end result.
I just want to say a very well deserved WELL DONE to all the girls that played and you all put in a fantastic effort and should be proud of yourselves.
