On Wednesday 14th October, Stoneygate played host to Grace Dieu at Market Harborough Rugby Football Club.
The team consisted of George H (Captain), Will Mc, Will M, George A, Max H, Dylan, Max W, Lucas, Kian, Edward and James.
This was the final game before half term for the U11 boys and an opportunity to put the Warwick and Tigers training days into practice.
Stoneygate had a stong defensive performance in the first half, against a well organised Grace Dieu side. Despite playing for long periods without the ball, midway through the first half the score was 10-10. Stoneygate had prevented Grace Dieu from crossing the line four times with strong tackling when a try seemed certain.
Stoneygate looked most dangerous in attack when they found space out wide, unfortunately, they were unable to recycle the ball quickly enough to take full advantage of this tactic.
In the 38th minute Grace Dieu scored putting them 10 points a head. The team responded with their best play of the game, moving the ball from left to right which create a big gap for James to run through and score.
Final Score – Stoneygate 20-25 Grace Dieu
Try Scorers: George H (3), James (1)
Dylan G – For all round improvement and team contribution.
Max H – Most improved performance in attack.
