On 6th October the U14s were at home against Warrington at the start of the Blacksticks Junior Challenge. This match promised to be a tough game as this would be a re-match of the U13s Vase Finals.
The training programme which the Eccles team had been going through in the closed season paid great dividends. The team passed better and the tackles were outstanding.
After a delayed start Eccles scored first but this was followed closely by a try from Warrington which they failed to convert. Just before half time Eccles scored and converted a 2nd.
In the second half Warrington dominated scoring and converting 2 tries to Eccles 1 try and convertion. There was great defence and when the final whistle blew the Eccles team were victorious by the 1 missed conversion.
