Ladies too strong for Ivel

Hornettes ladies proved too strong for visitors Ivel and romped to a 56-5 victory.

HORNETTES welcomed Ivel ladies and recorded a comfortable 56-5 victory.

From the start, Hornettes drove forward taking the attack to Ivel, but the first drive was stopped by a high tackle. From the resulting penalty, the backs moved the ball quickly for MJ Jenkins to score in the corner.

From the restart, the forwards again drove forward quickly releasing the ball out wide and Georgia Liddington created an overlap to score. This was repeated from the kick-off, this time for Amy Attree to score the third.

The fourth try came from Liddington entering the line and offloading to Charlie Williams to scored close to the posts, Emma Small converting. The forwards laid the foundation of the next try, they secured good line-out ball and MJ Jenkins took a flat pass to score from short range.
