Peterborough Ladies welcomed second placed Mellish to Fortress Fengate for a top of the table clash, and emerged deserved winners.
On a bright and bracing Sunday afternoon, the two top teams in the league faced up to each other for the first time this season. For the first fifteen minutes Mellish were on the front foot, but Peterborough's defence stood strong. However, from a scrum in their own 22, Boro, first through centre Michelle, went down the field showing great hands and running lines, with Becky on hand to get the try. Defence continued to dominate for both teams, with the visitors looking to keep it tight and use their powerful forwards, and Boro looking to get the ball out to their backs.

Boro looked to play more in the second half, and were able to get the ball out wide more often, after the forwards would take on the visitors around the ruck area. Some points were left on the park as passes were not accurate enough of hands too cold to grip the ball. However, ten minutes into the second half a delighted skipper Mel was able to score a second try, and move the hosts more than one score ahead. Boro's defence then excelled, keeping the visitors at bay, and their clearing out at the ruck was something to behold. With ten minutes to go, Boro decided it was time to play in the opposition half, and Michelle was on hand to score under the posts. Mel was successful with the conversion. Boro played the remaining 10 minutes pushing for another try, but unable to cross the line.
Final score Peterborough Ladies 17 Mellish Ladies 0
Our thanks to Mellish for a great game, with both sides giving everything, and to our match official.
Coach Rich, who was delighted with the performance chose Sarah and Canoe as his back and forward of the match, and it cannot have been an easy decision with everyone putting their hands up.
Next up, Sleaford Ladies at home on 11 March. You don't want to miss it.
