After a last-minute loss in the first round, the Leighton BuzzardU14) found themselves up against Rushden at home. In a contest, for a place in the next round. Covid had placed the game in jeopardy with a number players having been in isolation but despite this the U14s put together a good team.

In the opening minutes it was obvious Leighton had the upper hand.  A quality try from Adam Yeomans well worked from a breakdown inside the halfway line. This was converted by Flynn to put over an amazing conversion from wide out on the touchline.

Leighton continued to dominate the first half with yet another great run from Adam set up by the Buzzard forwards resulting in a penalty try following a high tackle. The score at halftime was 14 – 0

 

In the second half, Rushden regrouped and closed the gap scoring 10 points through a number of errors in defence by the Buzzards.  A good result and some lessons learnt. The final score was 14 – 10 to Buzzards U14s.
