U15s given the run around

Like everywhere else, Letchworth has been very dry over the last few weeks and all but the first team pitch, which had been watered all week, were too hard to play on. So it was with more concern about sunburn and bruises than waterproofs that we prepared for the match. Where I made the mistake, I realise now, was in putting the suncream in the car on Saturday evening ... I should have realised that this would virtually guarantee a downpour on Sunday morning! However, it all turned out alright as the rain had moved on before the game got underway and the underfoot conditions were much improved on last week.

Played as a 10-a-side game, the girls found plenty of space to run the ball and an open flowing game ensued. Despite resolute defence by the home side, the Berkshire girls managed to break through to score a brace of tries before Letchworth Saracens pegged them back with a try of their own. Although Letchworth Saracens were competitive to the end this was their only score and they had to contend with Berks Baa-Baas mounting sweeping attacks which ultimately stretched the home defence to breaking point to open up a decisive margin of victory.

This was a very entertaining game which Berkshire Baa-Baas deservedly won but the Letchworth Saracens girls should be proud that they maintained a high level of comittment and performance throughout.

Score : Letchworth Saracens U15s 5 v. 34 Bershire Baa-Baas U15s
