U7 Dragons overcome tough Oundle opposition
By Matt Allen
First draw of the season for Ridgebacks but greta comeback and attitude form both teams to maintain unbeaten season
Expecting another tough day of tag rugby after the thrilling matches v Boston, we were not disappointed by Oundle, who set their stall out early achieving what no other team had done this season against the ridgebacks, drawing the first game. Meanwhile the Horntails were tasting a loss in their first match as Oundle were keen to seek revenge for their losses earlier in the season in a 3 way match at Peterborough.
This frantic start by Oundle spurred the Dragons onto greater performances and produced some great passing rugby and tagging performances from both teams as they stamped their authority on the games and ended the day winning 5, drawing 2 and losing ., maintaining their overall unbeaten season by an opposing club.
Once again the pressing in defence paid dividends for the youngest dragons, forcing the opposition back and into errors that were capitalised on with Landen and Joseph picking up loose ball and scoring "on the break".
Another very pleasing day for the coaches, well played both teams.
