U13s Heathfield Warriors v Horsham
By Clare Gorringe
Some wish for it – we work for it and team work makes dream work!
Well what can I say about these young ladies,
Amazing just doesn’t quite cut it!!
When these Girls walked out on to the pitch you could see there was just one thing on there mind, Lead out by their captains Freya Gorringe and Amy Thursten there was only one out come with this emphatic WIN!
Slow from the off letting Horsham score a quick try, wasn’t the start the girls were looking for but gave the girls a wake up call that they never looked back from....! The first half was a closely contested game with everything the girls have worked on in recent weeks with our coaches paying off, it was amazing to see outstanding rucking skills from our forwards which created lots of turnovers giving our backs the opportunity to have the space to score the trys. Sophia Macdonald scoring 3 and Mary White scoring 1 put us on our way to a half time score of 20-15 to Heathfield.
The second half Heathfield girls came out of the starting blocks with the determination to start straight from the off. This being proven with 3 quick trys from Mary White, Steph Chipps and Sophia Macdonald.
Despite Horshams excellent handling skills and all round superb team play it was all about the Heathfield girls.
The forwards continued in the same vein as the first half and with exceptional rugby from the whole team this created many opportunities for our top scorers Mary White and Sophia Macdonald to go on and score 9 more trys with Steph Chipps also adding her 2nd try of the game to her tally.
Despite the dominance of Sophia and Mary this result would not have happened without the highclass all round performance of the team playing out the best game of this season, with a final score line of 65-20!!
Coaches Georgia and Hollie over the moon with the teams display had their easiest end of match team talk, giving the whole team players of the match due to their storming performance.
Thank to the whole of the Horsham squad you were a pleasure to host.
As always a huge thank you to all our Greenies supporters who came and watched today.
