U14 Cheshire Shield Winners
By Paul Young
Backs defend in style as forwards score all the tries
U14 Cheshire Shield Final. WPRFC 17 - 5 Macclesfield. A really hard fought game with tough defense from both sides. Winnington held out for 15 minutes of pressure on their own line at the start and then began to assert dominance through the forwards, with Rhys Dixon driving over for the first try of the game just before half time. (converted by Toby Creed). The second have begun with Winnington exerting all the pressure. Again the forwards drove forward from lineouts in the corner resulting in another try for Rhys and one for Ryley Kiernan. Macc responded with a try of their own but the Winnington lads defence was not going to be broken again and they held on for a great (but nerve wracking) victory.
