EAST LEEDS U14’S 16 HUNSLET PARKSIDE U14’S 20
Sunday saw the under 14’s step up for the up and coming season as they welcomed 1st division opponents Hunslet over to Copperfields for the seasons 1st friendly game.
The home team put on a great show as they proved the step up from division 2 shouldn’t be too much of a problem. With players in different positions to what they were used to, Easts held their ground and worked hard going up the slope and clever work by the backs led to Liam diving over to cancel out a Hunslet early try. Hunslet soon took the lead again, but still Easts battled well and stayed in the game. Miss fortune led to Parkside going over for their 3rd try but Easts didn’t give in and lose hope , Instead they enjoyed their best period of the game and try’s from Cam Spratt and Biffa both converted by Cam saw the hosts take the lead at 16 – 12. The final sector of the game belonged to Parkside who with down hill advantage managed to cross for 2 more unconverted try’s and put the final score 16 – 20 in their favour but the stars of the show had to be the Easts side who tackled like Trojans and worked well in attack to prove that they will not be a walk over for any team this season. Jack Clark and Biffa were the Easts men of the match with strong displays from Reggie, both Lukes and to be quite honest the rest of the team were all magnificent and deserved more from a game that last season they could have lost quit easily.
THE FUTURES LOOKS BRIGHT…PINK AND WHITE
