Under 15s cluster Dorchester/Oaks against Bridgewater match report
The home side in the 'green and white hoops' were once again hosting the friendly but gusty girls from Bridgewater, having lost to the cluster on two previous occasions this Bridgewater team is not to be underestimated.
Following last weeks frustrations, I wondered how the girls would approach today's match. They didn't disappoint and this resurgent bunch of Dorchester rugby players came out of the changing room ready to engage in some serious rugby play.
The first 2 tries were scored by Dorchester as they battled their way through the Bridgewater defensive line, however Bridgewater were relentless and their dogged determination rewarded them their first try in the later stages of the first half.
Immediately after the restart Bridgewater came out fighting scoring an early try, however this was countered by a fast return try by the Dorchester's flanker. Continued pressure from the dominant Dorchester pack created space out wide where further try's were scored by the increasingly confident green & whites back line. Too many try' scorers to mention, but some really good ball handling by Anna today, gusty tackles by Danny, an exquisite conversion by Jazz and the scrum half held her position well.
Some fantastic play from the Somerset girls today, a special mention to all the vocal and supportive crowd. Big thanks to the cake crew, kitchen lovelies and the coaches for all their efforts. This season just gets better and better. A successful day had by all.
Final score Dorchester 46-13
