Under 11’s

Last Sunday Tenby Under 11s travelled away to face Neyland. Tenby applied the pressure from the first whistle and a knock on by Neyland saw a scrum awarded to the seasiders. Off the scrum Tenby push forward and it was to be Jayden who emerged to cross for the first score of the morning. Converted by Louie Tenby took a quick 0-7 points lead. Tenby reapplied the same pressure from the restart and this quickly had Neyland defending their line once again. A lovely run by Rhys which changed the direction of play and sent the Neyland defence in the opposite direction saw Jayden take advantage of a gap in the defence and cross for his second. The try was this time converted by Alfie W and the lead extended to 0-14. Neyland started to build abit of momentum of their own but a strong run by Lucy and link up with Lewis took Tenby back into Neylands half and Lewis was able to crash over for another well worked try which was once again was converted by Louie. Neyland tried to run the ball and gain some territory but some big tackles from the seasiders defence stopped them gaining the vital metres they needed. A scrum awarded to Tenby created the platform for Jayden to pick up and charge down the touchline but a well timed tackle stopped him from scoring. Fantastic pressure by Tenby were forcing Neyland into errors and it looked like only a matter of time before Tenby would score again but a mistimed pass out wide saw Neyland take advantage and intercept to run the length of the field to score on the half time whistle leaving the score at the break 7-21 to Tenby. Tenby opened the second half with a quick score in the corner by Owen, converted by Rowan this time the score was now 7-28 to Tenby. Neyland replied with a try of their own and closed the gap once again 14-28. A well took kick from the restart saw Alfie charge up the middle of the field and push Neyland back into defending their line. Tenbys forwards worked hard to retain the ball and eventually saw possession move across the back line and find Alfie to cross for a well deserved team try. A well took ball from Rhys and well supported run up field saw Tenby chip away once again at the territory. A big kick up field from Neyland relieved some of the pressure for the home team but Tenbys strength and determination showed once again and sent Lewis over for try six. Converted by Rowan the score sat at 14-42. Neyland never gave up though. In the last five minutes of the game they continued to plug away at the seasiders and were eventually rewarded with a try of their own. Final score was 21-42 to Tenby. Man of the match went to Jayden for his commitment and strength at the breakdown.
