Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

BEACONSFIELD were un­able to fol­low up their open­ing day win over Win­born with an­other vic­tory as they lost 38-19 at home to Ban­bury.

Ban­bury nar­rowly missed out on pro­mo­tion last sea­son and started strongly with the game’s open­ing try for a 7-0 lead.

Beaconsfield then missed a long range penalty, but some great team play took them to within me­tres of Ban­bury’s try line and forced an­other penalty, which they con­vert- ed to get on the scoreboard. The hosts then took the lead af­ter a nice piece of in­di­vid­ual play by James Lam­bert saw him step out of the tackle and ran over for a try which Aled Lewis con­verted. Lewis then con­verted two penal­ties to ex­tend Beaconsfield’s lead to 16-7.

How­ever, Ban­bury came back with a try on the right wing, but Lewis scored an­other penalty as Beaconsfield led 19-14 at half time.

Ban­bury scored a penalty soon af­ter the restart, then upped the pace of the game and went over in the corner to take the lead.

They re­peated the same move and cre­ated an eight­point lead for them­selves and then pow­ered over again for 33-19.

Beaconsfield pushed Ban­bury back into their 22, but the vis­i­tors had the pace to de­liver one fi­nal try to seal their 38-19 win.
