Year 8 Boys win League Cup Final
It was to be the winners of the South League, Sir William Ramsay to take on the winners of the North League, John Colet. The venue was Aylesbury RFC and the weather couldn't have been better for such a final to take place.
Ramsay took the lead with a well worked try from Shaquille Jack. Jack was influential on the day, providing the main threat in both attack and defence. Ramsay made hard work of the first half with the ball being dropped on several occasions and tackles being missed all over the park. John Colet capitalised on a penalty given away for having hands in the ruck. They took a quick penalty and caught the Ramsay defence napping. The scores were tied at 10-10 going in at half time, neither team able to kick a conversion.
The second half got underway with Jack continuing his great form from the first half. The Colet defence were unable to cope with his power and pace and he was able to run in try number 3 and 4 during the second half. Substitue Aaron Knight was able to convert the two second half penalties taking the score to 24-10. This put clear light between the two sides for the first time in the game and the reason for this was the improved second half defensive display. Naseem Miah and Shane Eccles put in some excellent defensive work along with the ever impressive Josh Smets. Jake Cockram also impressed in attack punching some big holes in the Colet defence. The strong running of Cockram led to a third Ramsay try of the half taking the final score to 29-10. A victory for the Ramsay boys which takes them to the Regional Finals full of confidence.
The presentation of the league trophy will take place at Adams Park, home of the London Wasps during half time of one of their home games. More information to follow.
