Stoneygate 60 Oundle 15.
On a glorious early autumn afternoon our Top Game rugby team treated a good crowd of parents to an excellent display of fast, direct rugby when they took on Oundle.
Our boys began well with George C. and Kian dominating the rucks. This allowed half backs, Kai (captain) and Siddarth, to release our backs into plenty of space with Daniel in particular showing great pace to run in early tries and at 15-0 we were well on top. However, Oundle responded well to bring the scores level. With the game opening up George H. showed what a skilful player he has become, slicing open Oundle’s defence with a wonderful dummy to restore our lead.
Stoneygate dominated the second half running in a further eight tries without reply. Mentions should also be made of William and Max H. who tackled well when Oundle threatened and to Max W. for his catching under the high ball.
Scorers: George H. 5 tries, Daniel 4 tries, Siddarth 2 tries and Kian 1 try.
Well done to you all!
