Colts shoot down Ken­dal

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MACC COLTS ............... 32 KEN­DAL COLTS ............. 0

THE eleven Colts that made the trip to Ken­dal adapted bril­liantly to the atro­cious con­di­tions.

The Mac­cles­field young­sters out-tack­led their op­po­nents and scored five unan­swered tries in their 32-0 win over their Cum­brian op­po­nents.

De­spite be­ing out­num­bered, the Blues tack­led fiercely, com­pet­ing at the break­down and around the fringes to en­sure that the op­po­si­tion could not spin the ball wide.

The front row in par­tic­u­lar fought hard to re­gain pos­ses­sion.

Man-of-the-match El­liot Jones (left) scam­pered around the pitch, wrap­ping up man and ball in de­fence and mak­ing good yards in at­tack.

Ol­lie As­ton opened the scor­ing, slot­ting a penalty from in front of the posts.

Mike Green then scored the first try, ex­ploit­ing a gap down the left wing.

Scrum-half Harry Grant scored the next, tak­ing a quick penalty to him­self and nip­ping in un­der­neath the posts.

Callum Wright’s charge down and gather made the next try.

As­ton sneaked into the right-hand cor­ner for the fourth after a mazy run from Callum Davies.

Ben Had­field, Ken­dal’s choice for the man-ofthe-match, scored the fifth after snatch­ing pos­ses­sion at a li­ne­out, then charg­ing through the 22 to com­plete the scor­ing.
