Day 9 - Fixtures vs Ellesmere and Sprigston

1st XV - Awaiting report

2nd XV -

Eoin Finn got us underway with a superb hanging kick and a good passage of blacks and whites led to Ellesmere conceding and Ollie Matthews crashing over from close range and a monster kick from Eoin close to the sideline. Whitgift 7-0 Ellesmere.

What looked like a normal black soon became pure filth as Ollie Matthews received a tips ball off Ben Vailliant, and Ollie passed to Anthony VB who whipped a ball out to Eoin Finn. He found Fola who beat 6 defenders and touched down in the corner. This was between two quality carries from Piero Noah which lead to tries.

After successive kick offs which were claimed by Ollie Acton. Ellesmere scored as they peeled off a driving maul after they kicked to the corner from a penalty. Ben Lapthorne scored a great try off an intercept to finish the half and giving Whitgift a substantial lead.

As the second half began Whitgift started strongly with Theo Saitch scoring under the posts from an inside ball from Ed Matthews. Ellesmere rallied shortly after and pegged us back in our 22 for the rest of the half which was slowed by poor discipline with two yellow cards and 12 penalties against Whitgift. The final score: Whitgift 41-15 Ellesmere.
