On Wednesday the U10 Colts travelled away to Oakham to play Brooke Priory. All the Year Five boys took part.Despite the long journey we started well and Harris gave us the lead, with one of his trademark sprints down the touch line.
Brooke fought back and scored two tries to lead 5-10 at half time.
Ed and Will tackled well and often ripped the ball away from the opposition. James, Harry, Freddie and Dylan ran well in possession and tackled well in defence.
In the second half Brooke scored very early on, but for the rest of the half our boys played really well and they dominated the possession.
Brooke defended well and it was not until the final minute that we scored. Harry used his pace and power to force his way over the line.
This left the final score at 10-15 and a win to Brooke, but it could easily have been a draw or a Stoneygate win.
‘Man of the Match’ went to Harris for his super play in attack and defence, despite taking a big hit early on. The ‘Champagne Moment’ went to Harry for his try.
Many thanks go to all the parents for travelling away to support the boys.
