All good things must come to an end… What a season for the U13 Boys have had, credit to all the players as each one has developed themselves both on and off the field this term. Wisbech was not the finish that we hoped for, but the St Hugh’s boys stepped out on a cold December afternoon to face a well drilled Wisbech side. From the kick off we had our usual slow start, but whether it was the cold or not we did not appear to warm up and settle into our usual flow. St Hugh’s struggled to retain the ball and when Wisbech had possession they made the most of each opportunity. With some strong defence before the half-time whistle St Hugh’s managed to keep Wisbech out. The score line at half-time did not read well for us. The key bit was that none of the players grumbled about the score, the weather maybe. We went into the second half and the effort had definitely lifted and we spent a bit of time in the Wisbech half. We were just unable to finish and get that try we were seeking. After a few more Wisbech tries we mixed up the teams and played a St Hugh’s/Wisbech hybrid. This was a well matched game with both teams playing well with each other and crossing the line on a number of occasions.
