Gloucestershire Echo - - RACING -

CHEL­TENHAM Sara­cens con­tin­ued their great start to the sea­son as they booked their place in the Glouces­ter­shire Se­nior Vase fi­nal.

They met Wid­den Old Boys with both sides go­ing into the game with 100 per cent records but it was Sara­cens who came out on top 22-8.

Glouces­ter­shire Pre­mier lead­ers Spar­tans suf­fered their first de­feat of the sea­son though in the other semi­fi­nal as they were well beaten, los­ing 50-26 to Bris­tol Sara­cens to set up an all Sara­cens fi­nal on Novem­ber 24.

Old Cryp­tians and Brock­worth will meet in the RFU Ju­nior Vase Glouces­ter­shire fi­nal.

A late Gavin Wor­rall penalty gave Old Crypts a dra­matic 22-20 win over Ros­son-wye after first-half tries from Callum Drury and Ben Neville, plus a penalty try in the sec­ond pe­riod.

In the other semi-fi­nal, Brock­worth turned the form book on its head with a fine 17-3 win away to Old Col­sto­ni­ans.

Brock­worth went into the game with­out a win in Glouces­ter­shire One, while the hosts had won all four games in the same league.
