A&C give Slough the full Monty

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

BUCKS Cup hold­ers Amer­sham & Chiltern de­feated Slough 82-7 in the quar­ter-fi­nals on Satur­day.

Chiltern dom­i­nated the game from the start, ran the ball when­ever pos­si­ble and scored 12 tries in to­tal, with Monty Weather­all con­vert­ing 11 plus a try which give him a 27-point haul.

In blus­tery con­di­tions, it was no sur­prise that run­ning was the pre­ferred op­tion for both sides, but the pace and ac­cu­racy of their pass­ing gave Chiltern the op­por­tu­nity to out­flank the Slough de­fence.

A stun­ning miss-pass from Weather­all in­side his own 22 saw Jake Cut­ter find winger Scott Kilbey, whose 70 me­tre run pro­duced the first and pos­si­bly best try of the game.

Reg­u­lar breaks by for­wards and backs saw Chiltern clock up another six tries in the first half while Slough, with a pe­riod of sus­tained for­ward play, scored a try of their own to make the score 49-7 at half-time.

The pat­tern of the sec­ond half was very sim­i­lar with Chiltern ad­ding a fur­ther five tries to make the fi­nal score 82-7. Kilbey, Chris Naisby and debu­tant Sam Ris­bridger all scored two tries each with the oth­ers spread through­out the team.

Satur­day will see Chiltern re­turn to league ac­tion when they en­ter­tain Diss from Nor­folk (3pm kick off ).
