Blazers for Match Tea


This triangular tournament was held at St. Hugh’s and all three matches were very physical encounters and thoroughly entertaining.  We played Grantham in the first match and took a little while to get going conceding the first try.  However, the boys quickly got into their stride and moved the ball very well to score four unanswered tries to end the half 4-1.  The second half started in a similar fashion to the first half with Grantham scoring first.  St. Hugh’s replied with some wonderful tries, with one in particular going through six pairs of hands before touching down.  The final score was 8-4 with George P, Charlie H and Joseph S all scoring.  Some powerful runs from Louis C and William L all contributed to a super team effort.  The second match against Copthill took place after a rest whilst Copthill played Grantham.  The rest did not do St. Hugh’s any favours as they seemed to lose their rhythm against a strong Copthill side.  However, it was very closely contested and the first half finished 2-1 to Copthill.  A further try from Copthill took the game away from St. Hugh’s but they did rally and scored a well-worked try to finish the match 3-2.  It was great to see Lewis deC back on the pitch after a long injury.  Onwards and upwards to the next fixture, boys!
