Good Team Effort

After a run of hard fixtures the Ath U13’s travelled away to Rhiwbina for their latest match. The home fixture ending with a 2 point win to the Ath, so the team knew the return leg was not going to be easy.
The first half started off at a fast pace with both sides trying to keep the ball in hand and attack from anywhere. Turnovers were king in the first 10mins with both sides attacking the ball and trying to slow each others down.  After a good spell of sustained pressure the Ath managed to get on the score board first, from a scrum in the middle of the pitch. With no full back at home Leo Quinn chipped over the top with the back 3 and Rhys Hockings chasing hard, ending up with quick recycled back for Rhydian Greenhall to charge over near the posts. The conversion was kicked by Charlie Rees, for the Ath to take a deserved 7-0 lead at half time.

The second half started as a mirror image of the first with both sides putting pressure on at the ruck and turning the ball over numerous times.  After some good attacking by the Ath forwards and backs it was from a lose kick that the Ath scored again. Rhiwbina trying to clear their lines, kicked from close to their try line but some great elusive running from Rhys Hockings meant he beat a number of attempted tackles to score a great try to return the ball with interest. Charlie Rees successfully kicking the conversion again for the Ath to lead 14-0.  Rhiwbina didn’t give up and after a number of hard runs and recycling the ball with speed, they managed to spread the ball from side to side and cross after a mix up in the Ath defence. With the conversion kicked it meant the score was 7-14 heading into the last 10mins.  With the U13’s battled hardened after a number of hard fixtures it was their defence and team spirit that closed the game out with the winning score 7-14 to the Ath.
