Hornettes Girls Under-13s were unbeaten in three games at a mini festival in Minehead.
HORNETTES Girls Under-13s travelled to Minehead for a mini festival.
They played three games in total, winning all of them and the squad of 11 played with passion and determination.
Their support play was excellent with some great offloads out of the tackle. The defence was also impressive with some hard tackles and hard running.
Their fitness too played a part especially in the last game playing up the slope when they pulled the game back from 3-1 down to win 5-4.

The hosts started with grit and determination and within 10 minutes scored out wide. The visitors took a while to break the Hornettes defence and were pushed backwards until they eventually broke through to score under the posts to make the score 12-5 to Winscombe at the break.
The second half was much of the same with strong defence from both teams. The hosts managed to score a second try again out wide, but Winscombe used their experience and scored two more tries to make the final score 22-10 to Winscombe.
