A very cold and windy morning saw Ampthill u15s visiting Harrow rugby club in the Herts & Middlesex league.
Harrow opened the scoring early in the game with a well deserved converted try which sparked the Ampthill boys into life. Tom Murray carried out his defensive duties with some good tidying up of probing kicks and making attacking runs in reply. Ampthill then started to dominate play with the forwards controlling a lot of the play and making good yards into the Harrow half. Liam Everitt crossed the whitewash for the A’s for a converted try following a good off load from Soni Ma-Asi and oranges were taken at seven points each.
The second half saw Ampthill become dominant in all areas of the game with only cold hands preventing some good work in the backs, perhaps leading to a hat full of tries. Max Noble, at prop, made a number of surging runs for the line carrying Harrow players with him and Soni Ma-Asi was able to put Ampthill in front with an early second half try. The score of the game, came soon after, from centre Kyle McSwiggan with a run from within his own half that split open the Harrow defence. Ampthill were now in control with play camped in the Harrow half and Ampthills forwards dominant in the heavy pitch conditions. Ampthill now leading by 17 points to 7 and that was the final score.
The lads in good form and spirit will now face London Wasps next Sunday in another away fixture in the Herts & Middlesex league.
