TWOS LOSE CUP SEMI-FINAL

The twos, having secured Plate final success last season, exited the main cup competition of Herts-Middlesex Merit Table Two after suffering a 34-13 home semi-final defeat to Letchworth IIs.

The visitors fielded a very strong team and they looked to be heading for a comfortable win after forging a 15-0 lead.

However, Ignatians had no intention of going quietly and, to a man, they dug in splendidly and Alex McCall, one of a number to have a very good game, forced his way over.

Paul Duke added the extras as Ignatians trailed 15-7 at the break and clearly Letchworth knew that they weren’t going to have it all their own way.

Ignatians continued to pressurise Letchworth and two more successful Duke penalties brought the blue and golds within two points on the scoreboard.

Sadly, that was as good as it got for Ignatians as the hosts simply made too many mistakes in the fourth and final quarter, and Letchworth rediscovered their fluency to add 19 points and pull clear.

Euan Renny and Jack O'Toole shared the Man of the Match accolade.

Still, a good effort by a capable squad of players and one whose sights next season must be firmly fixed on league and cup success
