Oaks v Houghton
Acklam Oaks welcomed Houghton to Talbot Park on Sunday.
Match report by Callum Barker.
The Oaks, looking for their eighth win of the season started very
brightly crossing the try line after a long mazy run by Esa, which was
converted by Jack J.
Half way through the first half the Oaks scored again this time Kai
crossed the try line after a good drive and pick up at the break down.
Once again converted by Jack J.
Ending the half very strongly, Esa once again scored after a long
distance – converted by Jack J.
OAKS 21 -0 HOUGHTON
The second half started much the same as the first with the Oaks
applying the early pressure, which resulted in Esa going over for his
third of the match, converted by Jack J.
At this point the Oaks took their foot off the gas, allowing Houghton
back into the game. Houghton scored two tries after strong drives up
the field unfortunately they were unable to convert them.
Stunned into action, once again the Oaks got onto the front foot – Esa
scoring his fourth, unconverted, and Will running in from distance
after winning the ball at the break down. Jack J resumed normal
service with the conversion.
OAKS 40 – 10 HOUGHTON
A very good game and a very good all around team display by the
Oaks. Man of the match – Mohammed Mohammed.
Special thanks to Tim, our coach, who has lifted the team’s
