Keeping up the good work

The girls matches at Letchworth today were to be the Thames Valley league fixtures against Oxfordshire for both U15 and U18 Letchworth Saracens teams. However, Oxfordshire U18s were unable to field a side so while the U15s got to grips with their opponents, the U18s got down to some serious training.

The U15s match got off to great start for the home side when Emily ran almost the length of the pitch before passing to CJ to open the scoring and that was followed by a period of concerted Letchworth pressure which looked certain to result in another score. However, a turnover right in front of the Oxfordshire posts led to a super breakaway try for the visitors which levelled the score. This put a brief stutter into the Letchworth Saracens play but they were soon on the attack again and were rewarded with a string of 2 tries by Ellah and one by CJ to take them to the break deservedly leading by 22-5.

The second half began like the first with Letchworth Saracens pressing the Oxforshire try line and Emily converting the pressure into a try. However, the rest of the match was an Oxfordshire resurgence against a tiring Letchworth Saracens team who, despite some very determined defence, were pressed back to their own try line several times. Oxforshire were rewarded with a pair of well deserved tries and were in the ascendancy right to the end but the home side held on to win by 27-15.

Score : Letchworth Saracens U15s 27 v. 17 Oxfordshire U15s

Letchworth Saracens scorers :
Tries : CJ (2),Ellah (2), Emily
