WINDSOR 16 STOW 8

Stow put in a brilliant all round performance against league leaders Windsor and were desperately unlucky not to come away with at least a loosing bonus point . The game as the score suggests was very close and could well have gone the other way. Stow couldn’t have had a better start, Windsor infringed almost from the kick off which gave FREDDIE ROBERTS the opportunity to kick three points in very windy conditions, this he did. Windsor used their big runners well but Stow were very aggressive in their tackling which did cause problems. The first score came when Stow were penalized, the penalty was kicked to the corner and from the resulting lineout the maul was driven over the line for a try. Both sides were trying to run the ball and play open rugby but the wind and over use of the whistle did disrupt play. Windsor edged further ahead with a penalty when Stow were pulled up for off side then just before the break the referee harshly decided to yellow card two Stow players within a minute of each other. However Stow managed to hold out and not concede. Stow’s confidence was building as they were still very much in the game and matching the hosts in all departments. Unfortunately a very promising Stow attack was halted when Windsor intercepted and with all the Stow players in attack a second try was scored but not converted. With 20 minutes still left and Stow looking good in attack a break by James Holmes down the right saw him offload to FREDDIE ROBERTS who had to pick up the pass from his boot laces, he stepped inside and beat three defenders to score, conversion missed. With time running out Windsor were awarded another penalty which resulted in 3 points. Stow continued to attack and a break out from inside their own 22 by Jake Collett could have created a real chance to score but unfortunately a pass went forward. The final whistle blew much to the relief of Windsor who knew they had been pushed all the way.

Next week Stow entertain Wallingford.
