Uckfield Under 14s vs Lewes


Under 14 Girls vs Lewes

Today saw our U14 girls travel to Lewes for their first league match of the season.

This was going to be a big test for the girls – with several members of the squad playing their first competitive match.
A hard fought first 5 mins saw the nerves settle, with Uckfield building a great passage of play to Lewes 22. However, a loose pass allowed Lewes to gain possession with a very quick Lewes winger managing to make a break all the way to the try line.

Following that Uckfield found their stride. The tackles were more forceful, the rucks more powerful and the scrum became a guaranteed Uckfield ball (either with or against the head). The backs began to stretch their legs as well. With the team scoring 4 unanswered tries to take a commanding lead 20-5
However, the team did relax in the final quarter, allowing Lewes to score 2 more tries, and leading to a final score line of:
Lewes 17-20 Uckfield.

A great match, and some outstanding rugby in perfect conditions!

The U11/U12 girls also travelled to Lewes for a joint training session and a friendly mini-match – which the girls all thoroughly enjoyed – before supporting the U14’s from the sidelines.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
