D&W Plate Semi Final
Great win in the semi final
Due half term and injuries a team of only 16 players took on a large Well’s team away for the Semi Final of the Dorset and Wilts Plate.
The first half was a close game , hard fought in the middle of the pitch with eventually Marlborough breaking through and scoring a try and conversion followed by a second one just before half time with Well’s scoring a penalty. Half Time score was therefore 3-14.
In the second half with an injury to Haz we were down to 15 players and no subs and the lads had to dig deep and fight hard ; however we proved to be too strong for Well’s with another 5 tries run in and one more conversion and our defence held tight so no tries were given away . Final score was therefore 3-41 and we are through to the final of the Plate against the Winner of Yeovil and Walcot .
