Abbot Retain Unbeaten Record At Battling Borough

Jessica Howell reports on yesterday's game for the Ladies against Newton Abbot

A difficult day for the Ladies - it's always hard losing at home, but it was a deserved win for Newton Abbot who ran hard, were strong in defence and worked well as a team, playing heads up rugby.

The visitors scored their first try within the opening ten minutes of the game. Penryn then returned the favour, as the first half was a close affair, with Newton Abbot leading 17-14 at the break.

In the second half, both teams were down to 14 players due to injury. The white shirted visitors used their fitness to their advantage to score four tries to Penryn's one.

Special mention goes to Sarah Stovell who was awarded the Back of the Match award due to her incredible leadership of the back line whilst playing out of position. Forward of the match was Clare Matthews who made some smashing tackles and ran some fantastic support lines.

Although the result was not what we hoped for, all the Ladies did their club proud.

SCORERS - PENRYN:
Jessica Howell (1 try), Nichola Watts (1 try), Sarah Stovell (1 try), Francesca Rickard (1 conv), Sarah Stovell (1 conv).
