Oundle U14's end the season with a superb perfomance against BBOB !
Oundle U14's finish the season, as they started, with a convincing win
On the last day of the season, yet another GDFRR, Oundle U14's did just that and emerged the winners with a convincing win against a plucky BBOB side. Many thanks to the club for their kind hospitality again.
Oundle opened the score after two minutes with a great try by Mathew Arden...
The next ten minutes were frantic, with BBOB attacking and Oundle defending and tackling with determination.
The tension was ended when Jack Tyers stormed over line from some good rucking by our forwards.
Play ebbed and flowed , played mainly in BBOB,s half of the pitch, until Archie Thorpe jinxed his way over their line again
Mathew converted the try....
Our scrum was magnificent, and our rucking kept the team going forward, heads up most of the time, despite some difficult penalty decisions. A forward pass ? stopped another certain try by Archie before half time ...
so Oundle U14's went in 22 : 0
The game restarted with Oundle winning the ball and putting Mathew in position to score again ,
This was closely followed by BBOB's first try of the match...so game on! , BBOB then scored again , this time converted...
Oundle U14, s got their second wind after some really dogged defence on our line finally breaking out with Mathew scoring twice more, converting... the game finally drew to a close with Mathew Arden scoring his best try of the season with an interception and try from our 22m line...
The conversion responsibility was handed to Joe Spicer...it was a good effort just missing the post ....the corner post !! Joe will be sadly missed next season as he 's schooling elsewhere, but we expect to see him on the weekends at home...well done
Phew... Full squad of 19 players for the end game of a hectic but very successful season, thanks Boys for some real entertainment...especially to those who do the graft ,but rarely make this page ... so in no particular order ... Arlo for some great scrum work... Harry, don't get him cross...Jacques who now tackles and runs hard.. Chris good to see you again...Thomas who is reliable in attack and defence...George and Aiden who go on the charge ... Jack Fray always in the action ...Jamie on the wing who now catches most times and can run.
Dominic Wells was voted man of the match , catching high balls and dump tackling some big guys !
Quote from captain Peter Murdock ...'' we've come along way this year ''
Finally thanks to the coaches and the parents for turning the team out rain and shine... ( Paul Kennedy who asked for a mention)
There is team photo , I think on Ian's camera , which hopefully will be circulated .. see you on parade on Sunday for the presentation
