Ives still yet to win at Long Buckby

Changed side goes down fighting

After a good win last weekend which got the new years out of the system St Ives travelled to Long Buckby in a buoyant mood and having never won their before a victory was in high priority. There were 8 changes to the team that played Huntingdon the week before but with the season the bulls are having they backed themselves to win with any team.
After some earlier possession and good territory from St Ives, Long Buckby counter attacked really well providing inroads into the defence and eventually exposed an overlap and scoring in the corner. 5 – 0
St Ives struck back well, carrying well and using the space well but failed to take their chances but with a penalty kick to the corner and a effective driving maul the bulls soon levelled the score through Tommy Newman. 5 – 5
From there Long Buckby managed the game well playing in the right areas of the pitch and St Ives started to make too many individual errors and failed to clear the ball from there own 22, Long Buckby took advantage of this and with a strong pick and go game and managed to retake the lead. 12 – 5
The next 10minutes repeated themselves with Long Buckby playing in the right areas and again their pick and go game close to the try line was effective and they scored again 19 – 5
St Ives did well to hold out from another good attack from Buckby to keep the score at Half Time 19 – 5.
Long Buckby started the half the strongest but St Ives soaked up some good pressure and on the 55minute mark and great break from Martin Baldwin allowed St Ives to recycle quick ball and Michael Drake fired a lovely bounce pass to Oliver Raine who ran in from 20m to score. Alex Henly with a touchline conversion. 19 – 12
From there as the Bulls started to chase the game and indiscipline and more individual errors allowed Long Buckby to gain the momentum which lead to a successful penalty shot at goal and a fortunate bounce of the ball which saw the Buckby fly half release the winger for a try. Final score 29 – 12.
Special mention goes to Martin Baldwin and Jack Hickman who worked tirelessly throughout the match.
