2nd Win out of 4 games
On Sunday 22nd Jan Milton Keynes U13’s put in a performance any team would be proud of. In the opening minutes they had crossed the Olney try live twice. Were they on the edge of a fantastic win away to Olney, we were all thinking? The wind blew at the backs of MK which they did not use to it’s full advantage and just insisted on running through players, tackles and in to some wide open spaces to score. MK didn’t have it all their own way even though they had a bigger pack,
Olney did manage to take advantage of their technical ability on our scrums (room for MK to improve). Shortly after MK had built a comfortable lead but Olney struck back with a try or two of their own. The second half made the match look completely different to the 1st half as Olney made some significant changes to strengthen their side. This made a difference for them and with some missed tackles by MK allowed them to start reducing the gap.
MK did not let up and ran in a few more tries of their own. Added to this was at least 1 try to Olney which all parents agreed was “well” short of the line but awarded. Dismay changed to excitement and joy as it was a relief when the ref blew for full time.
All the lads on both teams played the game with 100% good spirit and looked to enjoy the match. Be sure Olney will try to gain revenge when they visit MK in the next few weeks
Well done on a 2nd win out 4 matches this season!
