Stevenage Town Rugby Club V Wewyn V Barnet Elizabethans

Town lift first trophy!
Sunday the 10th of March saw Stevenage under 11’s enter a tournament with Welwyn and Barnet. Both Welwyn and Barnet had two teams so the boys had four games ahead of them to try and lift their first trophy.
Stevenage 4 Vs Barnet 1
Darius, Joseph, Tyler, Darius.
The first match saw the boys go head to head with Barnet. They showed their strength and intent from the start and got off to a flyer beating Barnet 4-1. Two tries from Darius and one each for Joseph and Tyler gave them the first victory of the day.
Stevenage 1 Vs Welwyn 1
Match two saw the boys go one behind to a good Welwyn side but they battled hard to get back into the game. Determination and perseverance eventually paid off as Darius scored again to level the score before the final whistle.
Stevenage 6 Vs Welwyn 1
Aaron, Aaron, Ben, Luke, Dylan, Gabriel.
Match three saw the under 11’s face the second Welwyn side. They played with pace and passed the ball really well. The physical aspect of the Stevenage team was too much for Welwyn and Town scored six tries, coming from Aaron with two, Ben, Luke, Dylan and Gabriel. The game finished 6-1 and notched up a second victory.
Stevenage 0 Vs Barnet 1
The second Barnet team took a 1-0 lead in the last match and the boys were looking a little tired. The rain came down hard but Stevenage gave it their all to try and get back on level terms. They tried everything to break through the Barnet defence but just couldn’t get the try before the final whistle. It was a real gritty performance and a narrow defeat.
The under 11’S were still trying to get their boots off and collect their bags when the news came from the club house that they had done enough. The whole team played their part in winning their first trophy and with the way they play I’m sure there will be more to follow. Well done to all of the team. We’re all very proud of you.
See you all next week at destination tryline.
