Ampthill U15s went into this East Midlands Challenge top of the table clash with second placed St. Neots U15s with a much changed side. Under bright, but windy conditions, St. Neots got off to a good start with a converted try in the first few minutes and Ampthill drew level after only six minutes with Kyle McSwiggan crossing the white wash following a strong run from Jack Edwards on the Ampthill wing. No time to settle, the St. Neots lads had some good runners who again troubled the Ampthill defences and scored again, which this time went unconverted. Ampthill now began to settle into their own game with their defence becoming better organised and were able to enjoy oranges with the score at 12 points apiece following a Charlie Fleckney try just before half-time.
The second half got off to a good start with Ampthill unchanged. Full back Ben Wilson looking very good under some high balls and scoring after just three minutes with Liam Everitt crossing the line again for Ampthill shortly after.
Ampthill were now dominating the game with good performances from hooker Anthony Wilson and flankers George Odell and Josh Wright. Further tries followed from Jack Edwards and Kyle McSwiggan after a good solo run and St. Neots scored a consolation try late on.
The final score of 40 points to 19 in favour of Ampthill secured the top position in the table and showed a good spirited performance from Ampthill after an untidy start. It also sets the side up well for the upcoming matches in an important end to the season.
