U7’S v PENCOED
The U7’s were home for the visit of our neighbours Pencoed, in what could be described as near perfect conditions for a local derby. It was agreed with the visitors to play 4 ten minute games, to allow all the boys to have a good run.
Game 1 -U7 6 V 4 Visitors.
Both teams started the game all guns blazing, and even at this young age neither team wanted to lose. The young Dairymen battled hard against a well drilled side, where the game ebbed a flowed back and forth. With great commitment the boys tagged anything that moved. When we had possession the commitment never faltered with Scott scoring four tries in the first game, and 8 tries overall, great effort Scott! With the good playing conditions the boys were able to move the ball around with ease and enjoy the running rugby conditions. In a tight opener we were able to hold our nerve and win the first game. Great effort.
Game 2- U7 3 V 2 Visitors.
After the short break, and some fresh legs the scene was set for what was to become an even tighter match. The new faces soon got into the swing of the game and very quickly Lewis, Harrison and Gabe were working their magic through the shaky defence line of the visitors. Quick mention for Dylan who almost crossed for his first try on Sunday, keep going, it will come. Once again the defensive effort by the young Black and Blues was of mammoth proportions. This was again a great team effort.
Game 3 -U7 4 V 2 Visitors.
In the third game the young Dairymen continued in the same vein and attacked at every opportunity and scored some great tries, Ashton bagging two important scores. By this point in the morning's games the team were firing on all cylinders and were not going to let it slip now. With relentless pressure form Pencoed, the home defence withstood the onslaught to record a hat trick of victories.
Game 4- U7 2 V 1 Visitors.
In the final game, with a quick change of faces the scene was set for Pencoed to spoil the party and sneak a win away from home. In a hotly contested game where both sides kept up the full-on pace, it was always going to be tight. The Dairymen tagged like crazy and kept Pencoed at bay. Our silky tries came from Scott and Gabe to secure a great victory. Well done to all of you! You all played a massive roll in securing four huge wins Sunday morning.
The boys played with great commitment and enthusiasm, and once again should be very proud of themselves. Great work team!
Also, huge thanks to coaches, parents and supporters for your continued help and support.
Try scores- Scott Anderson 8 Ashton Gill 2, Evan Benjamin 1, Gabe McCallum 2, Lewis Williams 1, Harrison Richards 2.
