Ashford lose out to rivals
ASHFORD Ladies suffered a comprehensive 24-5 defeat against Canterbury. In a tough-tackling first half, Canterbury ran in two tries to take a 10-0 lead. Ashford remained in the game but almost immediately after the restart the hosts scored another score on the break and added the conversion for a 17-0 lead. In an attempt to claw back points, Ashford took the game to their opponents and were rewarded with a try when flanker Sarah Glasspool crossed from close range. However, the hosts added a fourth try by the end. Both sides are waiting for a decision from the RFU on which side will be promoted to South East 1 next season after a points deduction controversy.
