league Loss for under 15s

Vectis lose momentum against a strong Andover side
Still feeling the sting of the massive points to nil fixture in the under 14s hants cup, Vectis once again travelled to the north of the county to face a strong opposition.
Clearly Andover misjudged our lads who despite an early score from Andover, game straight back with a super score from Dan Lythgoe, converted by a very consistent Joe Nelson
. All of the penalties in the first half were ion our favour and Andover only had one lineout throughout the game, however, despite some awesome tackles and defensive work, Andover quickly spotted our Achilles heel and used their superb passing out along their backs to quickly put some space between the scores. The Vectis boys, with a reduced number of subs, looked tired in the second half and although there were some great efforts to break the gain line and score, Andover had the measure of us. The game finished a disappointing 56-7 but with plenty of positive comment and encouragement from the Andover coaches who recognised that this is a different side to the one they played last season. Jonah Lewin
was Vectis man of the match for his work ethic up front and Andover rewarded Max Henley
for his pace and running lines.
