Quentin scores four tries for Hornets

Quentin Querl ran in four tries for Hornets Under-15s in their victory over Cleve.

HORNETS Under-15s played host to Cleve in a stern test against the top side in the area from last season.

Unfortunately, due to several injuries the visitors turned up with 14 players, so borrowed a player from Hornets’ large squad for each half.

The first exchanges were even until Quentin Querl collected the ball deep in his own half and outstripped the Cleve defence to score under the posts, with the extras added by Bradley Lucas.

Cleve responded almost immediately scoring out wide, before Hornets went on to dominate the first-half with Querl scoring two more tries under the uprights with Lucas adding both conversions for a 21-5 lead.

Six changes were made to the home team at the break which unsettled the momentum. It took a Cleve try to get the lads to knuckle down and switch back on. Querl once again collected the ball from deep and ran a more direct line to score his fourth and best try of the day.

Cleve came back to cut the deficit with a converted score, but Hornets reacted well and scored two more unconverted tries through Ayden Chenoweth and Luke Collins. To their credit Cleve didn’t give up, finishing the game with a converted try to make the final score 36-24.
