Vectis Under 14s Crews to Victory

Muddy Hants Bowl win for Vectis under 14s

Vectis under 14s on the road again, this time to a combined team of Alton and Chineham in the 3rd round of the Hampshire Bowl.

First time back together since the xmas break, there was anticipation about the squads continued growth following an outstanding start to the season. On a misty, moist and muddy morning, the boys took the early chances with a well executed break by George Finan, down the wing and under the posts.

This was followed by two 'tap and go' penalties resulting in trys for Hugo Jolliffe, both converted by Joe Nelson.

The vectis scrum was solid through the first half, winning all of their own put-ins plus a couple against the head. This proved to be the platform for the backs to demonstrate their potential, with some outstanding running lines and passing.

The last try of the half was from relative newcomer Hristo Hritsov. The Vectis boys made the most of poor handling by the opposition on the vectis 22m line, and with crisp sharp passing, Hristov was set free down the wing with little resistance.

In the second half, Vectis set down an early mark of intent, with an initial line break by Tom Crews, off loading to Aiden Young, who delivered the perfect pop pass to speedster Max Henley who arrived on his shoulder at warp speed and headed under the posts. This was converted by second half Kicker, Tom Scadden.
Debutant Louis Wyatt scored a great break away try mid way through the half and although the game lost some of its shape due to the slippery ball and conditions, Vectis, with minutes remaining, finished the scoring with a signature George Finan break away run. Tom Scadden converted and the score at the Whistle was 43-0.

There were many names in the hat for man of the match, including Half back pairing of Scadden and, Nelson, Jacob Jones at flanker for the first time, Dan Lythgoe for a great restart after an injury that has kept him out of the game until today, and Tom Crews for his runing lines and passing. However, the coaches unanimously agreed that Sam Reed, number 8, deserved the accolade for his massive work rate and ball carrying throughout the match.

Vectis under 14s season goes from strength to strength, played 8, won 6. Best team performance to date.
