Pershore U8s in action against local rivals


Pershore’s minis tag rugby teams continued their busy schedule on Sunday 13th October, to give Tewkesbury RFC Minis a great game at Pershore’s grounds at Wyre Piddle.

Pershore U8's took to a carefully prepared pitch against Tewkesbury RFC U8's. Both teams played some excellent tag rugby. After a close run first half the Pershore team entered half time 5-3 down having displayed some textbook defence against a consolidated Tewkesbury onslaught on the Pershore try line. After a brief rest and team talk the Pershore under 8 team launched themselves into the second half hungry to even the score and with some great running and support play they clawed back a try almost immediately to bring the score to 5-4. The score then remained as such for the best part of the second half with both teams battling well in offence and defensive play.

Finally the weather took its toll and a fumbled pass due to cold, wet hands allowed Tewkesbury to intercept the ball and penetrate the Pershore defence to  score their 6th try. With minutes to go Pershore threw everything into the attack however, possession was turned over to Tewkesbury and as Pershore tried to reorganise into a defensive line the opposition again took the advantage and broke clear along the wing to increase their score to 7. Just before the final whistle Pershore launched a last assault but having gained significant ground in the Tewkesbury half they were again undone by a fumbled pass which the Tewkesbury winger, in a blinding turn of pace, managed to score the final try of the game to leave the score Pershore 4 - Tewkesbury 8.
Pershore try scorers were Oscar Reynolds, Andrew Thorner, William Rimmell, and Cain Groom.

All Pershore mini teams will be looking forward to their next set of games away in Upton on Sunday 20th October.
