No reward after bright start
Ashford U17s 0, Maidstone 25 WHAT began as an evenly balanced game deteriorated, from Ashford’s point of view, into a walk in the park for Maidstone.
The first half was even, with only a try in the dying minutes giving the visitors an edge.
In the second half, however, Ashford lost their way a bit and gave the initiative to Maidstone, who scored three more tries and a penalty.
A trip to Westcombe Park beckons this week and, on this showing, Ashford will find it tough to compete with ‘the big boys’.
