Victory for vectis under 14s
The sun shone for Victorious Vectis
A Vectis under14s side, short on numbers due to injuries travelled to Overton to play a mixed team from Overton and Fordingbridge.
Two lads from the opposition switched shirts to even the numbers and a well mannered game ensued.
Despite the early rain, the sun arrived at Overton at the same time as Vectis, making for a lovely morning of rugby for both players and spectators.
Vectis took an early lead thanks to a try from George F which was converted by Tom Sc. Fordington replied with an unconverted try after which, despite some excellent attacking play from the opposition, the Vectis lads powered through for the win with further tries from George F, Tom C, and an excellent interception from Tom Sm. Tom Sc made one further conversion, and a with near miss off the post, the final score was 25-5.
George F was nominated by the opposition for his fast pace and running lines, and Vectis man of the match was Lewis G as chosen by coach, Tom Kearney. True to the spirit in which the game had been played, Vectis nominated one of the 'Fordington' players who had switched shirts as the oppositions man of the match.
