Great win for U14's away at Heaton Moor
AK running in 8 tries in 48-40 victory
A great run out away at Heaton Moor RFC. Our first game for a few weeks due to cancellations it was great to see the boys get stuck in to competitive game play.
Despite it being half term AK had 17 eager boys. Particularly pleasing was the fact we had two new members getting their first run out for the AK All Blaks.
It was a high scoring game with both sides running in some great tries.
Our first try started with great play from Max Hastings, taken in to contact by Ollie Dunne who popped the ball to Oliver Jackson whose wrong running took it over the line for the opening score.
Heaton Moor fought back and notched up three consecutive tries with some superb play.
The AK boys didn’t let their heads drop and after a scrum in the HM 22 we got the ball to winger Tom Slade who ran down the line to touch down a great try.
The game edged forward neck and neck with Tom Slade taking a great catch from a restart to run all the way down the line for another fantastic touch down under the the Heston Moor posts.
Tom continued his great work on the wing eventually getting his hat trick.
A total of 8 tries for AK with a final score of 40-48 in favour of the visitors AK.
A big thanks to Heaton Moor who played some great rugby and for hosting us.
They gave us a great game. We look forward to playing them again next year.
