Storm Academy 7 from 7.

By Stephen Guan, 3rd May 2012

Storm Academy stretched their winning streak to 7 after a comfortable victory over Staines Titans in round 6 of the London Youth League.
Wet and windy conditions greeted the visitors to the Croydon Thunderdome and Eddie Long added further misery to the Titans by stepping his way over the line to register his points for the season as well as the first points of the match.
Not long after Khalil Njoya burst through the Titans defense to claim his first try of the day to take the score to 10-0.
With conditions not favouring attacking footy, Storm managed to put on another 18 answered points to go to the break 28-0.
The second half saw Storm put on another 26 points with skipper Malikhi Lloyd-Jones nabbing his usual try a game and the highlight, rampaging front rower, Zac Bembridge racing 80m to score underneath the sticks.
The final score was 54 points to 6 in favour of Storm who now lead the competition by 4 points.
