U11 RUGBY V BIRCHFIELD

U11 Rugby v Birchfield 1 Feb 2017

This was the best performance so far this season by our U11 team, with some excellent passing and some great tackling.

The game was a stalemate for most of the first half until right at the end when Birchfield scored. Yarlet started well in the second half. Some beautiful passing from the team led to an excellent try from Alfie. Birchfield however came back immediately with a well executed try of their own. Then Alfie caught the ball in the restart and tore down the pitch to score under the posts. Birchfield brought on some replacements to strengthen their team and subsequently scored four more tries. Yarlet were undeterred and continued their exciting play. There was some great tackling from Oliver who pulled another try back for us. Henry followed this up with a run from deep inside his own half to score a try of his own. Owen then added another try to the Yarlet tally. The game was very closely contested, but unfortunately for Yarlet, Birchfield scored two late tries to win the game by 8-5.

This was a great game. Each member of the team played exceptionally well. A special mention goes to Alfie for his fabulous running with the ball, to Ethan for playing so well in his first game for the U11 team, to Oliver for some great tackling and organisational skills, to Henry and Owen for good running and passing of the ball and finally to Aaron and Jamie for their non-stop tackling and running with the ball.

Man of the Match: Oliver for steely determination.
