U17s: Ampthill Match Report

With a number of other events occuring we travelled to Amtill on Sunday with just 13 of our 24 girls. With the unusuak numbers came an unusual set of positions with both sides agreeing to play with 8 in the back line (1more than a full backline).

Starting XV:
20 Rayner
15 Randfield
14 Threlfall
13 Robinson
12 Alcock N
11 Schipani
10 Parnell (VC)
.9 Alcock K (C)

1 Watson
2 Hughes
3 Jordan
4 Glenister
5 Vivian

The girls started well and adapted to the conditions early. They were organised both in attack and defence and applied pressure to Ampthill from the start. This paid off as Nim forced through tackle after tackle to put the Legends ahead. Unfortunately with some plonker holding the ball up she was unable to convert. Nattalie, returning to pobably her prefered position on the wing, started as she went on. Several early breaks lead to nothing however her persistance was rewarded and she crossed to increase the score. Again with the ball being proped up the conversion was missed. Letchworth continuing to dominate crossed the line twice more in the first half, however only the first was awarded. Jess made a break down the left wing, outpaceing all the trailing defenders and managing to touch down under the posts. With the Kicking tee now being used Nim slotted the conversion. The second line crossing came from Randy who managed to cross two lines and still not score. After crossing the first line (try line) tryed to make her way to touch down under the posts. She was unsuccessful in her attempts as she was bundled over the second line (dead ball line) and missed out on a well deserved try. The first half ended with injuries. First nattalie who would later return to the game but also Nim. Suffering pain in her shoulder after landing aqwardly and ending her game. At some point in the first half Ampthill scored but cant remember when or how so the girls went in 17-5 at half time.

With further injuries Letchworth were left playing with 10 and conceded early in the 2nd half. However the girls stuck at it and there efforts were rewarded. Nikki crossed to add the girls 4th try of the day and Jess taking over kicking duties converted from infront of the posts to make it 24-10. And thats how the score remained.

Player of the day went to Nattalie who consistantly created problems on her wing and was always asking questions of her opposite number. Special mention must go to Jess Rayner who, in only playing her second match, played absolutely outstandingly. Solid in both attack and defence and was unlucky to not go home with a try.

Good performances all round!!!!!!!!
