Scoreline not reflective of performance for U16s
By Jon Huckstepp
Upminster lose cup semi against div 1 opponents
A brave performance form Upminster could not stop the inevitable against much stronger opposition in the cup semi final. Their opponents, Eton Manor, showed the home side how much quicker and more physical it is two divisions above.
Upminster battled hard and gave a good account of themselves. The opposition coach remarked at the end of the match that he was expecting a much easier game.
The scoreline was irelavent but for the record Joe O'Shea scored and opportunistic try in the second half, converted by Josh, to ensure the u16s at least put some points on the board.
Eton Manor will play Mavericks in their final. Upminster will play Maldon in the plate.
