Mud glorious mud, there's nothing quite like it!
In horrible conditions, Ashton's under 12's battled hard against Heaton Moor drawing one game and losing another.
Match 1 - Heaton Moor 1 -v- 1 AOM
The Boys put in an excellent performance in the first match of the day and were clearly the better team throughout. There were some interesting decisions in this encounter and the scoreline in no way reflected Ashton's dominance. Indeed, the result could have been clear if time had allowed them to take their penalty 5 meters from the hosts line at the end of the game.
After falling a try behind against the run of play, Harry P. picked up a loose ball and raced down the left wing showing impressive speed to touch down. Harry had an excellent all-round game as did all the forwards.
Well played one and all.
Tries - Harry P.
Match 2 - Heaton Moor 6 -v- 0 AOM
Missed tackles, against to be fair a good much bigger Heaton Moor side, on a quagmire pitch in worsening conditions with a number of players struggling with the temperature (especially those in short sleeves!) Enough said.
MOM - Niall and Ollie
