U18s Finish on a Winning Note!

The Letchworth Saracens U18s played their final league game of the season at Letchworth on Sunday and for 6 players (4 Letchworth and 2 Saracens) it was their final home game before moving up to senior rugby next season. Obviously, that made it a special day but it was also special because the match was against Berkshire Baa-Baas who had defeated Letchworth Saracens in the first game of the season at Reading.

From the moment the referee got the match underway, there was no doubt that both teams were well motivated and a fierce battle ensued with half chances being created by both sides. With play ebbing and flowing down the pitch, it was anybodies guess who would score first in this encounter but the home side were gradually getting the upper hand and were eventually rewarded with a try by Megan. Claire added the conversion.

Immediately, the Berkshire girls were back on the attack searching for an equalising score but it was Letchworth Saracens who broke away to extend their lead with a try by Bubbles. Once again Berkshire responded to the challenge and were rewarded with a well worked try to leave the score 12-5 at the break.

The second half was characterised by both defences getting the upper hand and, indeed, although it was fiercely contested, there were no further scores until the very last move of the game which saw Jess dive over for a third Letchworth Saracens try. Once again, Claire succeeded with the conversion.

Score : Letchworth Saracens U18s 19 v. 5 Berkshire Baa-Baas U18s
