Banbury U16s 32 – 20 Leamington
By Keith oakes
A grueling game on a wet, chilly morning.
An interception enabled the visitors to take an early lead with a try under the posts, duly converted.
A well worked move from a 5 meter lineout saw Liam crash over to opening scoring for Banbury.
A series of forward drives ended with Kaleem adding 5 more, both conversions from wide missing the mark.
A penalty mid field was kicked by Quinton for a 13-12 halftime score.
Quinton jinked and forced his way over the rain-faded whitewash, converting his own try. Ben, playing scrum half, then got into the scoring action nipping over the line after taking a pass from Harvey J picking up at number 8.
Leamington kicked a penalty of their own to make it 25-15. Eoghan then barged over the line, converted by Quinton.
From the restart, Leamington’s speedy right winger raced beneath the hanging drop kick, collected the ball and evaded tackles to grab a late consolation try out wide, unconverted.
Final score 32-20 to Banbury.
