The Moore the merrier at Chesham Rugby Club
FATHER and son duo Steve and Billy Moore took to the pitch together for the first time to help Chesham RFC win for the first time in 10 matches on Saturday.
Veteran scrum-half Steve came on at half-time to join teenage son Billy on the pitch as Chesham won 10-7 at Wheatley to end a run of nine straight defeats in the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier. Ross Leek kicked a penalty and a conversion for the Stags, while a well worked move put in winger Kieran Aroudj for their only try as Chesham came from behind before holding firm to secure victory.
There were plenty of muddy marvels among the junior teams too on Sunday as they mastered difficult playing conditions to record some excellent results. The U16s led the way with a 43-0 demolition of High Wycombe, George Pettifer bagging a brace of tries. The rest were shared between Ben Popely, Luke Dawson, Harry Pawlak, Calum Young and Ed Lunt, while Luke Bouchier added four conversions as they leapfrogged their opponents in OBB Division Two.
The Chesham Colts gave an outstanding defensive display against Chipping Norton in Division Three of the OBB Colts League, with some astute tactical kicking by fly-half Alfie Pettifer pinning their opponents firmly in their half and forcing them into continuous handling errors.
Jack Edhouse touched down after a break by Pettifer, before converting his own try from near the touchline, while props Ryan Mendolia and Jordan Ross bulldozed over for two tries.
The U13s had a hard fought win 192 win against Beaconsfield to put them through to the semi-final of the Bucks Plate, while the girls sides all tasted victory at senior (20-0 against Hampstead), U18s (25-10 against Harpenden), U15s (73-0 against Harpenden) and U13s levels.
