Winning Ways at Winchester
after a slip up at andover, the teams positive season continues.
Vectis under 14s took a mixed squad of experience and new players to Wichester for a friendly fixture.
Captain C. Buckley opened the score sheet in the second minute with a charachteristic big ball carry from the 22m line.
The only score of the half, the visitors started the second period positively with a solo effort from debutant H. Hristov.
Hristov scored a second, with a cheeky pick up from the floor, converted by fly half Nelson for a 17-0 lead. The home team regained composure with an interception try followed quickly by a second score, both unconverted. G. Finan ran over for a fourth Vectis score, once again converted by Nelson. The score sheet was 24-10 with a minute to play and Winchester capitalised on some loose vectis ball to cross the line, this time successfully converted for a final score of 24-17.
Winchester nominated G. Finan as man of the match and Vectis Coach Tom Kearney singled out prop J. Lewin, whose hard work on his fitness has really payed off, for a personal best performance of the season.
