U11s Register first win of the season
By Tony Rolle
Bruises and determination help U11s to win
The extra hour in bed may well have helped the team to register their first win this season, against a well-drilled Thornbury side. The teams were well matched and although Thornbury struck first, we replied with tries from Alec Errington & Milo Lucas in the first half. Thornbury came out fighting fit and replied with three well-worked tries, with only one reply (by Archie Oddy) for OBs.
Having had a few knocks all round, the boys seemed to relax into the second match and enjoy themselves, scoring 4 tries (Archie Oddy, Will Riley, Milo Lucas & Aryan Nejabati) with Thornbury scoring one in reply.
A thoroughly encouraging display in an away match and even a shiner (Milo) and a flatter nose (Archie West) won't take away the deserving win from the boys.
Special mention and congratulations to Oliver Dell in his first competitive outing for OBs
