U9s v Sedgley Park 18th November 2012

Just 2 weeks after a tight entertaining fixture against Sedgley which ended in a draw, Eccles and Sedgley were once again ready to do battle.

The last time the 2 teams played, a draw was a very fair result and there was very little between them. This time however, Sedgley were no match for the Eccles U9s who were all right on top of their game.

Eccles raced into a 2-0 lead with early tries again from Luke H and Duncan. Sedgley pulled one back and a close game was once again on the cards. However, tries came flooding in from across the team, with Harry, Luke H, Jake, Finley and Will Roberts adding 5 tries with no reply taking Eccles to an impressive 7-1 lead.

Sedgley pulled back a second consolation, but Eccles were still full of running and added 3 more tries through Finley (scoring his 2nd), Joe and then Luke H scoring his hat-trick try to cap a fine individual performance.

The whole team played magnificently, and it was Finley who claimed the game’s Man of the Match award, with some fine runs and strong tackling adding to his 2 tries. A great performance Eccles.

Match Result: Eccles 10 v 2 Sedgley Park.

Match Squad: Joe, Will B, Will R, Luke F, Matthew, Harry, Henry, Jake, Luke H, Robert, Jack, Duncan, Finley.
