Under 13s Rugby: Gosfield School 19 - 22 Colchester High School

 

This was a thoroughly entertaining game with some end to end rugby being played.  22 players from Gosfield were up for the game with a good number of Year 7s confident enough to step up for the challenge. 

Colchester scored twice early on to take a 10-0 lead and from there the battle commenced. Ollie Barrett put us on the scoreboard and Ollie Ings put over the conversion to bring us back into contention.  Both teams rallied and scored another try a piece (Freddie Calvert scoring for Gosfield). With minutes to go Tom Swift struck another blow for Gosfield; and with another converted try we went  19-17 up.  Straight from a very short kick off the ball was collected by Colchester and their best runner went through a few tackles to score what turned out to be the winning try. Unfortunately for Gosfield it meant we lost 22-19.

All 22 boys got stuck in and should be proud of coming very close to beating what was a very good Colchester team.
