Welwyn Ladies Vs Bishop Stortford

Narrow Defeat from Top of the League Team

Coming off a huge victory the weekend before away at Basildon, Welwyn ladies continued to train hard during the week ready to take on top of the league Bishop Stortford. Welwyn Ladies started strong with a try from Daisy Parker which was converted by Emma Waddup to take Welwyn 7-0 up. After the first try Bishop Stortford went into beast mode. The first half was a eye opener for Welwyn Ladies as Bishop Stortford showed their rugby experience and skill. Welwyn ladies just their second match of the season, were still establishing their positioning on the pitch and adjusting to the pace of play. An inexperienced Fionn Griffith received a yellow card for a high tackle which dropped Welwyn ladies down to 14 player, to which Bishop Stortford took full advantage of.

The first half ended Welwyn 7 - 19 Bishop Stortford.

Bishop Stortford opened up the second half with a break away try stretching the score to 7-26. Determined to close the gap Welwyn ladies got stuck in and came together as a team to tighten up play and utilise their strength and speed. Welwyn Ladies back three; Sophie, Bambi and Kirstie put in some big tackled to fend off Bishop Stortford throughout the match. As the second half developed Welwyn Ladies came back stronger than ever. First came our second try from Chloe Olliffe, followed by a second by Daisy Parker. The team dug in and played some skilful and passionate rugby coming together to give Chloe the opportunity to gain her second try in the corner.

The final score Welwyn 22 - 26 Bishop Stortford. A close match with equal tries scored. We look forward to a rematch later in the season.

Welwyn Ladies gained 3 x U18s players for their debt ladies senior matches; Daisy Parker, Chloe Olliffe and Anna Hooley. A great achievement and a brilliant sign for the future development of Welwyn girls and women's player pathways at Welwyn. The support we received on match day with many club spectators turning out to support Welwyn Ladies is a testament to the fantastic club ethos Welwyn Rugby Club has.
