Hornettes Under-13s took part in a triangular event against Winscombe and Clevedon.

Hornettes Under-13 Girls welcomed Winscombe and Clevedon to a very cold Nest for an afternoon of rugby.

Hornettes took on Winscombe to start the afternoon off with newly-qualified Phoebe Santo as the referee. Winsombe were quick to attack straight from kick-off and broke through within seconds of the game beginning.

From the restart, Hornettes were unable to gain possession which allowed Winscombe to drive closer to the white wash. Some good defence and driving tackles from Miriam Bailey and Willow Hull helped keep out Winscombe.

This set the tempo of the game and Hornettes found themselves deep in defence and when in attack struggling to get out of their half.

The next game saw Clevedon break through several tackles to score an early try. Hornettes were quick to react and came back with some strong attacks, pinning Clevedon back on their line, with several tries being scored.

Clevedon hit back and put in some crunching tackles and turned the ball over and crossed the try line. The game continued in similar style of play, which brought the final score of 40-25 to Hornettes.

Many thanks to all the players and coaches for a great afternoon’s rugby. Congratulations go to Nevaeh Southall for her first try, Kerys Owen on her debut. Special thanks to Pheobe Santo and Sophie Reed for refereeing two of the three games played.
