EXMOUTH 14 v SIDMOUTH 14
On a truly Autumnal morning, Exmouth Under 12’s played a close run game against Sidmouth at home.
Soon after Kick off, Sidmouth showed a run of excellent passing resulting in a well-deserved try which was quickly converted. Exmouth came back with some great play which saw Finn Musgrove run over the line to score a deserved try which was converted by George Smale.
Both teams came out hard in the 2nd half but it was Sidmouth who scored 1st and led the game until 5 mins from the final whistle when Ieuan Brockway crossed the line in the corner to gain a try, which was converted by the try scorer of the first half Finn Musgrove.
Sidmouth could have run away with the game if it hadn’t been for the sheer determination and outstanding defence of Exmouth. The young Cockles had moments of brilliant passing and kept the pressure on the away team the whole match, making the game really enjoyable to watch.
The entire squad played well and they are really beginning to gel as a team.
