Hornettes travelled to Ivel Barbarians in Yeovil and returned with a victory.

HORNETTES travelled to Yeovil for the return fixture against Ivel Barbarians.

In a cold and windy day with a few players out of position, Hornettes played the majority of the first half in the opposition’s 22.

The visitors took the lead when their pack won a scrum which allowed the backs to spread the ball wide and Lou Watson scored the first try of the match.

Straight from the restart, Hornettes kept applying pressure and from an Ivel line-out, Sinead Boys managed to steal the ball and pass to Abbey Constable, who smashed her way over the whitewash to score the second try of the game.
