The U13s had another good day at a small 3 way tournament at Old Northamptonians last Sunday. The Cygnets played ONs first in a tense nail biter of a contest. The score was 2-2 right up to the final play of the game, when Buck stole it with a beautiful try from Abbie.
We then watched a close game between ONs and Crusaders RFC (a side from Norwich) with was much more open, finishing 9-7 to ON. With us completed the triangle at the end, playing Crusaders.
We went 4-0 up in the first half, but at half time the girls took their foot of the gas. Crusaders came back to 4-2 and things were looking a little shakey, but a beautiful break from Georgia, through the middle of a defence marveling at the speed of thought and deed from the young Cygnets, gave Buck a bit of breathing space. Crusaders came back with one, but the game ended 5-3 to Buckingham.
We then had a lovely maccaroni cheese and everyone was happy!! If you want to join our happy little throng please drop me a line. We will be doing some taster sessions over the summer holidays to try and recruit some girls for next season, come along and see if you might like it. Watch this space for dates etc.
