A&C run in nine tries to progress to quarters
AMERSHAM & Chiltern ran in nine tries as they beat neighbours Chesham in the U13 Bucks quarter finals at Chiltern Hills Academy on Sunday.
In late autumn sunshine, it was Chesham who would be left in the shadows as Amersham showed early dominance, Cian McGuinn running through the centre for the opening try before a Chesham clearance was gathered for Chris Whitaker to run in a second under the posts.
Amersham continued to dominate in the first period and Stephen Hughes was on hand to receive a pass to score the third try in the corner, before prop Julian Shaw went for route one, forcing his way through for a fourth.
On the right wing, Felix Hale wriggled his way like an eel through the Chesham tackles for another, and Hale added his second try shortly after, showing a great turn of pace following an electric run.
In the second period, Ben Harris punished Chesham for a dropped pass, grounding the ball for a try, and finally, Ainle McGuinn turned on the after burners to race away to score two further tries and complete a convincing 49-0 victory.
Amersham’s men of the match went to Dan Eckersley in the forward department and Jack Carling in the backs, with both playing key team roles.
