Woodbridge celebrated its first win for the 1st XV Rugby team last week against Kings Ely, and what a game it was to win!
From the first whistle every player on the field gave their all as the crowd gathered, creating a super atmosphere for an occasion that I’m sure all the boys will remember for a very long time. None more so than loose head prop Jack (Y13) who not only had an outstanding match but celebrated Man of the Match thanks to his contribution, especially his huge shift in defence.
A first half yellow card saw one of our team have to take a seat for ten minutes, but the intensity remained high with a dominant display from Woodbridge. Despite this, the score at half time was 0-0, proving the tightness of the game so far.
Shortly after the referee restarted the game, King’s Ely and Woodbridge traded penalties, Captain Mak (Y13) leaving the scores at 3-6 after ten minutes. After this is was Woodbridge’s game, with carries from tight head prop Thomas (Y13) setting a great platform for our backline to run some exciting moves. Edward (Y12) helped through his show of versatility by playing, what seemed to be, at least three different positions which led to a well-deserved team try, finished in the corner by Mak to leave the game at 8-6.
An impressive win from Woodbridge, thanks go to all of the supporters who came along, it really helped and encouraged the team – we look forward to seeing you at the rest of the games this season.
