Ampthill Academy opened up the scoring in only the second minute of this East Midlands Division 1 match when winger Dan Chalmers crossed the line after a break down the left wing and Fynn Cook put the conversion through the uprights. A number of pick and goes on the left side saw prop Harley Edwin continue Amps good start with a smart pass from scrum half Harry Lawler setting Harley free to score.
From the restart, Amps gained possession and a few phases saw Dan Chalmers and Jamie Bell combine to beat the Peterborough defence, again down the left flank, to see Jamie cross the whitewash and Amps lead at 17 to 0. With forwards and backs now working really well off each other and Peterborough conceding penalties, the tries were coming fast. Second row Harry Charter touched down from a catch and drive and then after 23 minutes a large crowd was entertained by a nice kick ahead from Harry for winger Chris Rempel to chase down and score. The 24th minute saw Amps backs stretch the defence once again on the left flank and inside centre Ethan Wells made a good run over 20metres to score. Harry Charter scored from another pick and go and the half was completed with Sam Stirling bursting over the line after heavy forward pressure. Oranges were taken at 50 points to nil.
Ampthill now playing down the slope in the second half and looking to keep a clean sheet were soon back into their stride and outside centre Jamie Bell scored his second try of the match with a great running line splitting the opposition defence and placing close to the posts. Sam Stirling then scored his second try of the match with another burst across the whitewash following strong pressure from the forwards and replacement fly half Sean Hardwidge scoring the conversion.
Peterborough scored a consolation try in the 51st minute to get onto the scoreboard following some poor defending. Ampthill, though, saw the game through to the end with further converted tries from George Handsford and Pierce Holland and a more than convincing 78 points to 5 win.
