Match report by captain, Harvey H
|13.10.17||St Joseph's||St Joseph's||
So the first match of the season was against the experienced St Joseph's. With half of our team making their debut appearance, we knew it would be tough. We spent most of the first half defending our line and consequently we were 4-0 down at half time. Nevertheless we pulled up our socks and had a team chat and came back fighting. When we got close to their try line, Charlie waited for the last tackle before kicking a perfectly positioned ball to Billy, who caught it and went in for the try. The second try was on the third tackle when Charlie scooted and scored. Though we were playing much better, unfortunately St Joseph's went on to score two more tries resulting in a 6-2 loss.
|9.3.18||Newton West Park||N.W.P||
On Friday 9th March, we played Newton West Park, away. Our defence was outstanding throughout and so was our attack. Our first half try scorers were Louie and Harvey, after good passing out wide. In second half, Ethan B scored, before Colby showed great determination to touchdown in the last minute! This try won us the game 4-3. Ethan S, James and Leo also made their debuts. We now play XII Apostles, this Friday!
|16.3.18||XII Apostles||XII Apostles||
We played XII Apostles, who were a very good side, on Friday 16th March. Including kicks, we were defeated 44-12, after being 32-0 down at half time! We made a comeback late on due to our determination and never-say-die attitude, drawing the second half 12-12. Ethan and Harvey scored tries, with Charlie and Noel kicking the goals. Now, onto Tuesday!
|20.3.18||Sacred Heart||Gilded Hollins||
At home to Sacred Heart, we walked onto the pitch with a very positive attitude, following an improved second half performance in our previous game. We won show the toss and began to show strong attacking until, after a last tackle kick from Charlie, Sacred Heart returned the ball well and began to make yards out wide. This became their tactic throughout the game, with the first half ending Gilded Hollins 6-16 Sacred Heart. Colby touched down with Charlie landing the conversion. Despite deserved tries from Ethan B and Noel in the second half, with Noel adding a conversion, we fell to a 32-16 defeat in a match where we were the better team for long periods.
|23.3.18||Leigh C.E||Gilded Hollins||
|19.4.18||Bedford Hall Methodist||Gilded Hollins||
We fell to a 38-6 defeat at the hands of Bedford Hall Methodist on Thursday. Putting the result and scoreline to one side, Mr Taylor was immensely proud of the spirit in which we played the game, showing determination and respect throughout, and for not giving up despite the heavy scoreline. Our try scorer was Ethan B, who powered through the middle and reached over to put the ball down, late in the first half; Noel converted from in front of the posts. In hot conditions, we also lost Harvey and Martha to injury during the game but battled until the final whistle, in the face of an extremely confident away side.
