Colts B Rugby v Maidwell Hall

Colts B XI v Maidwell Hall Wednesday 24th July 2014 AWAY TEAM James B, Alex M, George C, Tom W, Dan R, Sidd B, Matt W, Caspian E (Captain), Bertie L, Alfie W, Max W. The Colts B team produced a most pleasing first game of the season, which was full of entertaining and skilful moments. Maidwell were playing their fifth game of the season and they settled more quickly than us, taking a two try lead. However, we then rallied and scored three tries to take the lead. James took a quick tap and set Alex free for a run in, then Alex used his power to break through the Maidwell defensive line and ran 40m to score a super try. Finally, Daniel broke through the defence and ran almost the length of the field to score a wonderful solo try. The second half was equally exciting with lots of passing and open play, combined with some good tackling from both sides. Matt W, George C, Daniel R, Caspian E, Max W were particularly strong and made key tackles. Maidwell equalised and then we scored the try of the match, when Bertie took a pass at pace and ran through the defence and the length of the field, to score and to give us the lead back. Sadly, it did not last long, as this end to end match ended with three tries to Maidwell and a defeat 20-30. However, the events of the match will be remembered long after the result and Mr P was able to make positive comments about every player on the pitch. It was a great afternoon of sport. Man of the Match went to Matt W, for his strong tackling and his adventurous and positive attacking play. We were even treated to a Vulcan fly past!
