Oundle vs Stowe

Result: Loss 15-22

Going into this game, the team had had two weeks of training and our standards had raised yet again. Once again Oundlescored first, with Stowe scoring an equaliser soon after. The game was high intensity and fast paced with more tries for both sides. Oundle kept up great pressure to keep on turning the ball over, even one meter from our own try line. When we could not, the team put in some huge tackles to keep Stowe out. At half time, we had all to play for. Because of this team spirit, Stowe were on the back foot even when they had possession and Will de Capell Brooke stole the ball and ran the length of the field to draw level with Stowe. Unfortunately Stowe scored again with three minutes left, but the team would not give up and showing great determination, managed to get to the five meter line before the ball was cleared. Despite the result, this has been the team best performance by far and if we can carry on going from strength to strength in this manner, we will be a very strong side in our next games.
