Farnham U14Bs vs Sutton & Epsom U14B

...a bruising encounter...

On a windy afternoon Farnham U14s welcomed Sutton & Epsom to Wilkinson Way for their next league fixture

Straight from the kickoff Farnham made their intent clear by quickly closing down and pressuring the Sutton & Epsom backline. For the first 5 minutes Sutton & Epsom were pinned back on their own try line by some ferocious Farnham tackling. After an initial 5 meter scrummage Farnham looked set to open the scoring, but Sutton & Epsom held up the attack before their breakout was halted by the determine Farnham defence. After winning the ensuing ruck Farnham forced their way over the Sutton & Epsom line to score the opening try with Ben Seymour emerging from under the pile of bodies with the ball. The try was well converted by Samuel Johnston

The next 10 minutes saw aggressive rugby from both sides with very strong tackling. One tackle by Jake Kinberley summed up the games as he put down one of the largest players on the Sutton & Epsom side before the Farnham forwards were quickly into the ruck to win a penalty

The turning point in the first half came when Sutton & Epsom won a scrummage on the Farnham 40m line. As the ball reached the tall centre, Sutton & Epsom finally broke the Farnham line to score a try under the posts

From this point on, with growing confidence, Sutton & Epsom started to dominate the breakdown. After winning some rucks that should have been secured by Farnham, their big forwards started to push Farnham back into their own territory. From a penalty on the Farnham 5m line the Sutton & Epsom pack powered over to score their second try

At the restart the Farnham kick was just to long running dead behind the Sutton & Epsom try line. From the subsequent scrummage the Sutton & Epsom forwards again powered forward. Eventually driving the ball over the Farnham try line to cap a drive that started on the Farnham 22m line

The second half started very much where the first had left off with Sutton & Epsom pressing Farnham back deep into their own half. After another driving try followed shortly after by a fast running try Sutton & Epsom extended their lead

To their credit the Farnham side never gave up in what was a very physical encounter. Good work from Jake Kimberley who ran through the defensive line before off-loading the ball to Oliver Wingfield pressed Sutton & Epsom back. Oliver drove through the scrambling Sutton & Epsom defence unfortunately being stopped just short of the try line. Farnham were not however to be denied as William Mylchreest picked up the ball before diving over the try line for a well deserved score

FT: Farnham 12 Sutton & Epsom 29
