Sports Report - Year 8 Rugby vs Haygrove
The Year 8 boys rugby team travelled to local rivals Haygrove this evening and put in a magnificent effort against strong opponents. The game started at a fast pace with a big Haygrove running away to score 2 quick trys. Chilton hit back with Ollie Manchip, Ashley Higgins making huge strides on their rampaging runs whilst L Redwood and W Stevens were excellent at the break down securing good possession. Just before the interval the boys were in a close game with Haygrove at 4 tries to 3 as the half time whistle blew.
The second half saw Chilton dominate possession however made lots of mistakes for Haygrove to score two quick tries. From a good run by the powerful O Manchip and a offload to A Hodge and another offload to H Sussex it was only right that he would score on his debut. Although the boys were in the fight Haygroves big runners started to make strides off our mistakes as we got tired. The match ended 9 tries to 4 to Haygrove.
The boys can be extremely proud of their efforts and can look forward to their final festival in the New Year knowing that they are a strong outfit.
