Brave Colts Go Down Fighting At Hayle

Alan Dennis reports on Friday night's game for PenFal Colts at Hayle.

After great support from Penryn's U16s for the first two matches, PenFal Colts managed to raise a side which included a substitute for their first away game.

Playing under lights on a Friday night at Hayle was a great experience for all the lads involved. Hayle scored first after nine minutes following a good period of pressure, however PenFal responded with a try of their own through Jack Watts after seventeen minutes. The remainder of the first half was a hard fought affair with both teams creating chances and defending well, however Hayle managed two further tries to make the score 26-5 in their favour at half-time.

A slow start by PenFal to the second half allowed Hayle to score a further three tries in the opening seven minutes before the visitors got themselves back in the game. With renewed effort, a period of fifteen minutes rugby was played in the opposition's half. However, with players becoming fatigued, a score would not come. Conversely, Hayle, who have trained together more and had seven substitutes, mounted a late charge to score a final try with eight minutes to go. PenFal finished the match with some great pressure that got them to within four metres of the try line, but again, the fresh legs of Hayle managed to shut the door.

Another great effort from the Colts who showed their potential, as the game was far closer than the scoreline suggests. A lack of numbers is creating a trend where we compete well for large parts of a game, especially in the first half, but unfortunately we miss the fresh legs and cohesion to tip the scales in our favour.
