Buckingham U12s Dominate against Bugbrooke
Playing their final game of 2014, on possibly the coldest day of the year, Buckingham visited Bugbrooke.
Playing on a full length pitch after a good warm up session the Polars (good name given the cold!) were up first and unfortunately started where they finished last week, conceding two quick penalties for hand offs!!
The boys however soon started to dominate territory but were unable to put points on the board before the halftime whistle, 0-0.
They say it's good to be consistent but I'm not sure conceding another hand off penalty at the start of the second half was what the coaches meant!
Finally the Polars hit their stride with strong running out from defence by the backs and rucks quickly won by the forwards seeks Jacob dive for the line to make it 1-0 Buckingham.
Despite constant pressure and 95% territory and possession to Buckingham, no further scores followed with the game finishing 1-0 Buckingham.
Grizzlies up next, and like the Polars before them, quickly put pressure on Bugbrooke with Loic showing great speed on the wing, just missing out on a try. But the opportunity was not lost with Kyle going over to make it 1-0 on the next play.
From the restart a good run from full back saw Isaac F go close but is held up on the line. However with Buckingham again dominating the scrums, Kyle on the crash ball makes it 2-0 Buckingham at halftime.
The second half saw the game ebb and flow with Bugbrooke creating pressure (supported by their super sub Matise!) but Buckingham held on for 2-0.
A 3rd game followed for those hardy enough to keep out the cold wind, (hope the feet have thawed out Barbara!) with a Buckingham team taking on a Bugbrooke side supplemented by Matise, Josh and Daniel.
A closely battled first half saw Bugbrooke hold out with further reinforcements from Buckingham, to make it 0-0 at halftime.
The second half started with more pressure from Buckingham at the scrum sees the awarding of a penalty which Charlie F drove over to score for Buckingham.
Two further tries quickly followed with Joe showing his pace and strength on the wing to score twice and secure a third win of the morning to Buckingham 3-0.
Three games played all won, 6 tries scored none conceded.
