The Woodbridge under twelves travelled to East Bergholt High School keen to continue where they had left off in their win over Orwell Park. No sooner said than done: immediate pressure on the EBHS line allowed Alex Barker to score; soon after man of the match Theo Howard made the most of a poor clearance kick to pounce and score; next Henry Tetley sidestepped, skipped and twisted out of tackle after tackle to make huge gains; Josh Barstow ran hard and straight from a close-range penalty to score; Erwan Gouedo went over in the corner after great passing by Theo, Tommy Burrows and Rob Stewart; Tommy then scored himself after a clever interception; Fazil Akyol gathered a clearance kick and cleverly sent Erwan on his way to a second try; Jonny Evans Lombe kept up a constant stream of good ball from scrum half; next Theo completed his star performance, darting through the beleaguered defence, dummying magically to scoot over and complete the first-half whitewash.
Half time brought some changes to try to even things up a little but Woodbridge continued to dominate in a new formation: first Henry scored from an opening created by Rob, and then captain George Na Nakhorn wrapped up the game after Akyol ripped the ball free and offloaded. Exhausted? You, the reader, might be – as for the boys? Not a bit! This was a good solid team performance with excellent lessons learned: Woodbridge 9 EBHS 0
