Ives win the derby!

St Ives 2's get the better of arch rivals St Neots

As storm Erik battered the UK, there were gales blowing down the slope at the Chicken Shack as St Ives 2’s took on local rivals St Neots. The St Neots skipper won the toss and elected to play down the slope with the elements in the first period.
As play got underway, Ives looked to attack wide with speed and it didn’t take long to break the deadlock as Rick Peters galloped down the wing to score in the corner.
With less than a quarter played, inspirational Dave Sykes pulled up with a hamstring and could play no further part. Fortunately the bench was strong and Greg Dale filled the void.
The mobile pack were covering the ground well and secured quick ball time and again for Joe Cox to direct the play and it wasn’t long before an overlap was created down the right hand side and Rick Peters crossed for his second.
Despite being more mobile and slightly lighter than their counterparts, Ives had success in the set piece with scums going forward and the line out working well. Tuckwood, Edwards, Ruddock and Hickman covered every blade of grass on the pitch and credit to young Bradley Robinson who when opposed with yet another wily old tight-head more than held his own and drove forward at scrum time. One of the successful scrums in decent territory lead to a gap opening up in the midfield and Jim Robinson slinked through and dotted down under the posts.
There was a period of play to follow where Ives struggled to come to terms with the officials interpretation and gave away a string of penalties which were capitalised on by the visitors to get their score.
Despite the stiff breeze, Alex Fry was throwing darts in the line out, but it was quick tap’s at penalties that was getting Ives on the front foot and just before the break, Rick Peters was able to complete his hat-trick, finishing off some splendid work. Half time 24-7
With the slope and stiff breeze at their backs, Ives assumed the second half would be a walk in the park but were starved of ball. With little possession, it was vital to be clinical and Ives were with two fine tries from Callum Long.
As the match wore on and fitness took it’s toll, the home side were superior and further tries were scored with a lovely chip and chase by Joe Cox and there was a well deserved try for the energetic Jack Hickman.
The final score was 59-7 and the 2’s went marching on……..
