Hornettes ladies were held to a draw in their first match of the season.

HORNETTES ladies team travelled to North Petherton for their first game of the season.

From the initial kick-off, both teams showed their intent to play wide attacking rugby. Petherton scored the first try of the game as Hornettes missed a couple of tackles and allowed them to get in behind their defence.

Immediately from the restart, Hornettes put together a wide flowing move with some slick passing between forwards and backs which was ended by Kerrianne Williams, who cut several clever lines to score in the corner.

Petherton responded by their forwards driving down the pitch, and despite Hornettes managing to rip the ball and beginning to counter attack, an interception on their own 22 allowed Petherton to retake the lead.

Petherton re-took the lead when the next Hornettes attack broke down, allowing the hosts to score under to posts, kicking the conversion.
