Loughborough U14 (36) vs (41) Oakham U14

Saturday 3rd November - Quorn Playing Fields

This was our first match back from half term. We had set a very high standard of rugby last half term, and knew that we would need to work very hard. The match began and within the first five minutes, after some quick hands, Oakham had their first try, through Felix Pinder however were unable to convert. Loughborough then hit our lines hard, and after some hard work, scored their first try without conversion. Loughborough then scored and converted again, however Oakham were not put off and pulled through for a second try just before half time. This was again unconverted, leaving the half time score at 12-10 to Loughborough. The second half began, and what a great second half it was, with David Olotu scoring a fantastic try, what a great game he had. Loughborough then scored again, with a break down the wing. Toby Cousins scored 4 Tries in the second half, as we finally began to shift the ball out wide with some speed. Will Begy converted 3 out of the 5 tries in the second half. However there were also some tries from Loughborough, but Oakham stayed strong, keeping Loughborough from scoring any more tries. With two minutes to go, George Hopkinson was injured, and had to come off and we wish him a swift recovery. But the boys held on and finished with yet another victory under their belt. Well done Oakham, what a great start back from half term.
