A Rugby Thriller

The Year 8 Boys Rugby Team took on a powerful Varndean side in the Town Cup, on Tuesday 28th November. Varndean raced into an early lead scoring two well worked trys leading 10-0. Hove Park managed to score a well worked try, only to be pegged back by some strong running from the opposition backs 15-5.

The second half saw a much tighter contest, Hove Park were quicker to the breakdown and were beginning to edge back into the game. Hove Park managed to score a great team try bringing the score back to 15-10 only to again concede from some incredibly powerful forward running 20-10. It really was an end to end game. Hove went again breaking down the left flank running it in to the corner 20-15.

With five minutes left it could have gone either way, a Hove attack broke down and although defending with every ounce of energy, Varndean managed to apply the finishing touch grounding the ball in the corner. Final score 25-15. There were three cheers for both sides as it had been a real battle between the sides. Congratulations to both sides on a great game of rugby.
