Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sports -

Ash­ford un­der-15 girls scored eight tries in their 56-26 win over Ayles­ford Bulls in the RFU South East Cup fi­nal at Kin­neys Field on Sun­day.

They will now face the South West win­ners in the na­tional fi­nal.

Maia Daw scored three tries and also boasted a 100% con­ver­sion rate to score a to­tal of 31 points, with Si­enna Far­rance adding three more and Tabby An­toine two.

Coach Liz Ashby said: “I am proud of ev­ery­one. We were the bet­ter team and played in the true spirit of the game.

“We played well as a team not just as in­di­vid­u­als and ev­ery­thing they have prac­tised in train­ing came to­gether.

“They showed

plenty

of heart and proved they are a force to be reck­oned with as we move on to the na­tion­als.”

Ash­ford, field­ing only 11 play­ers due to in­juries, led 21-19 at half-time be­fore win­ning the se­cond half trycount five-one.

Poppy James went off be­fore the end with a blood in­jury

Jackie Hop­kins and Chloe Smith were both un­able to play be­cause of in­jury but were there to cheer on their team-mates.
