Today (29th January) and in fantastic weather conditions for rugby, our U12 girls combined with Bishops Stortford and Chelmsford and played Dagenham. Playing 3 × 20 minute sessions our Babas team took a commanding lead in the 1st period of the game with some excellent handling and strong running, leading 10 tries to 2 at the interval. It was more of the same in the next period, and even though Dagenham were showing great determination the Babas defence was resolute and with some more great running and some try saving tackles the lead extended even more. By the end of this segment, it was Babas 18 tries Dagenham 3. Well what can be said about the final part of the game. 2 well worked tries by Dagenham gave them a lift, however the combined team’s class showed with 7 more tries scored.
Making the final result Harlow/Bishops Stortford/Chelmsford 25, Dagenham 5.
A great all round performance from our combined team with Elsie Goodship from Harlow getting 3 tries.
A special mention and a big thank you to IIysten Owen (U16 boys), for officiating his 1st match since qualifying as a referee. Well done IIysten.
