Sunday 26th Friendly
Hove V Uckfield
Hove/Worthing v Uckfield U18 26/11/17.
A combined Hove/Worthing team played Uckfield at the Rec on a perfect rugby day today. The visitors got the game under way and home team were quick to go on the attack with some excellent play through the centre of the park and it didn't take the Hove/Worthing girls long to get on the scoreboard with some really good attacking lines cutting through the Uckfield defence. Two more tries followed in quick succession with some good hands and great support play, giving the Hove/Worthing girls a 17-0 lead inside the first quarter, despite some good play from Uckfield. The home team continued to press the Uckfield attack with some really good tackling and work around the breakdown resulting in a well deserved lead at half time.
Hove/Worthing kicked off the second half and continued to play with pace, again showing some really good attacking play. Uckfield refused to give up and scored 3 very good team tries in the second half with some outstanding wing play but Hove/Worthing would not be denied and scored several more tries, allowing them to run out comfortable winners with a full time score of 61-22.
A special mention for both teams today for not only the positive attacking rugby on display but also some outstanding tackling and commitment from both teams. Congratulations ladies.
