Taming the Leopards

Following a frustrating defeat in the away fixture against Middlesax Leopards earlier in the season, Letchworth Saracens U18s were on top form for the return match last Sunday. Similarly, the U15s, who had enjoyed a good away win against Leopards, were again in good try scoring form.

The U15s match was an open flowing game in which Letchworth Saracens took the lead and maintained the advantage throughout despite spirited attacks from Leopards which yeilded them 3 tries. The final score was 32-15 to Letchworth Saracens.

The early stages of the U18s match were closely contested with Letchworth Saracens trying to press home their attack while being only too well aware of the attacking potential of the visitors wings. The deadlock was broken when Claire attacked round the side of a scrum 10 metres out to score under the posts. However, the lead was short-lived as Leopards stormed back to score a fine break-away try to level the scores. Letchworth Saracens, though, were in no mood to be thwarted and they staged a succession of attacks which came very close to scoring before Nikki forced her way over to give the home side a 10-5 lead at the break.

The second half was a story of more of the same - Letchworth were playing well throughout the team with every ball being hotly contested and they were rewarded with 3 more tries to end the game victorious by 27-5.

Great team performances by both squads. Well done, girls!
