Hon­ours even in tense game


Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Classified -

Can­ter­bury Ladies 12, Ash­ford Ladies 12 BOTH sides played well in a tense en­counter with hon­ours fin­ish­ing even.

Be­ing their first league game of the sea­son, both sides were anx­ious to make a good im­pres­sion and the first half was evenly fought, Can­ter­bury lead­ing 12-5 with Ali­son Hol­ness scor­ing a fine try in the cor­ner.

Ash­ford stepped up their game in the sec­ond half but were un­done by their own mis­takes.

Fi­nally though, Sarah Glasspool went over and Ken­dall con­verted to level the scores at 12-12.

The last few min­utes saw both sides go­ing for the winning score but it was not to be.

Three girls made their de­buts for Ash­ford and Char­lotte, Lucy and Hay­ley were mag­nif­i­cent among their hard-work­ing team-mates.

Play­ers are al­ways needed and train­ing takes place on Thurs­days at 7.15pm. All are wel­come whether new to the game or an ex­pe­ri­enced player.
