Kettering take the honours

It was a very frosty morning but the pitches were well thawed out and the weather could not have been better for the afternoon matches at Kettering today.
The U15 match was between Kettering and Ampthill (with Letchworth's Laura playing for Ampthill) and the U18s match was between Kettering and Letchworth with 3 Ampthill U18s shared between the sides.

The U15s match was well contested with Kettering running out winners by 35-20. Letchworth's Laura had a good match for Ampthill contributing to the scoreline with a hat-trick of tries.

The U18s game was a very close match with Letchworth leading for most of the game thanks to a try in each half by Hayley but they were denied a commanding lead by a succession of last ditch, try-saving tackles by Kettering. It was a good all round performance by the Letchworth girls, however, a late flurry of tries by Kettering saw them run out deserved winners by 20-10. Nikki was named Letchworth Player of the Match.

As you can see from the photos, it was a beautiful sunny afternoon as Simon supervised the warm-up -

and when things got started Sasha was soon in the thick of the action -

and Mel followed suit, only being dispossessed 20 metres out from the try line -

When Nikki charged down a Kettering clearing kick the ball rebounded just over the dead-ball line -
Sasha continued to carve her way through the midfield -

and Nikki was denied a try by a matter of inches when this attack was stopped by a last ditch tackle -

Jess was also making breaks in midfield -

and was prevented from scoring by a fine tackle some 10 metres short of the line -

Meanwhile, in the forwards, Enily was capturing lineout ball -

Charlie was getting used to a different position -

and all of them were supporting each other -

Hayley's second try caused some consternation to her team-mates when, having crossed the try line in the corner, she proceeded to run through the Kettering defence a second time in order to ground the ball under the posts!
