Hornettes ladies recorded a narrow victory at Chipping Sodbury.
HORNETTES returned from Chipping Sodbury with a hard-fought 12-6 victory.
The visitors got off to a good start when Abbey Constable took a short ball and crashed over the try line from two metres to score under the posts. Emily Pearce converted to take the Hornettes into a seven-point lead.
From the kick-off, Hornettes again took the attack to Chipping Sodbury with powerful forward drives, good support play and quick handling backs. An overlap was created and Emily Pearce swerved past the last defender to sprint in from 25 metres.
Hornettes’ improved rucking and mauling frustrated the hosts and following several bits of ill-discipline, had a player yellow carded.

The second half saw Sodbury kicking for territory and the defence continued to hold out, except for another penalty for the home side. The last play of the game saw Chipping Sodbury spin the ball wide and create an overlap, but a tremendous try-saving tackle by Georgia Liddington showed the determination and spirit of the whole team.
