Match Report Y8 Rugby - Thursday 19 September

Oxted v st bedes

final score 26 - 24


The rain fell in torrents on the Oxted fields as we faced local school St. Bedes. This was a proverbial game of two halves.

Oxted started brightly against largely inexperienced opposition, forcing the gain line and making frequent indent into the Bedes defensive line. Tries by Owen Hulme, Rhys Clutterbuck and an ever threatening Sam Regan achieved a 19-0 lead at half time.

After a number of substitutions to the Oxted team to create a more even, balanced and enjoyable second half saw Oxted under pressure and their captain rallied his troops to score a good try. St. Bedes scored two further tries from lapse tackling making the score 24-19 to St. Bedes.

Sam Regan scored the final try of the game to level the score 24-24 with the final conversion to claim the win. Sam calmly kicked the ball between the posts to give Oxted the win 26-24.
