Tag Rugby

 

Clockhouse last the distance to win a close game with Crowlands

 

Clockhouse hosted local friends Crowlands for a tag rugby fixture. The game was a close game with both teams feeling each other in the opening encounters. As the half wore on both teams exchanged scores with Clockhouse holding a narrow lead at half time.

 
The second half was a faster game with Crowlands finding gaps to score but sadly for the visitors Clockhouse were capitalising on the handling errors. This proved vital in the end as Clockhouse ran out winners 9 to 6.
 
SQUAD: Charlie B, Charlie G, Brooke A, Sophie L, Kayleigh M, Lily S-E, Bobby I, James O, & Hayden M.
 
PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Hayden M

Mixed fortunes with one win and one defeat in first rugby event of the season.

 

On Friday night Clockhouse welcomed St Peter's of Brentwood for two tag rugby fixtures. Both games were played at a healthy pace and highlighted areas of strength and for improvement.

 
In the first game Clockhouse Dark Blues recorded an 8 - 6 victory. Player of the Match was Jake L.
 
In the next game Clockhouse Royal Blues were defeated by a defensively well drilled St Peter's team 11 - 7. Player of the Match was given to Sophie L.
 
Mr Yarrow said 'I'd like to thank St Peter's for travelling from Brentwood. Its always good to find healthy competition from outside the borough. 
 
The Dark Blues showed some great footwork and cover tagging to come away with a battling victory. The Royal Blues got stronger as the game went on and when they picked up the speed and didn't allow St Peter's to organise defensively they made a good game of it. Sadly the damage was done in the first half.
 
Thank you to our two referees from Upminster Rugby Club we could not have done it without you!
