Hayward’s Heath 2 Shoreham 0
Shoreham started too slowly and suffered the consequences going down 2 – 0 at half time. Second half Shoreham woke up and got their rhythm going and despite not scoring were the stronger side in the second half
Shoreham showed no mercy to the hosts and were full of power and pace with 3 superb tries breaking tackles and charging to the try line.
Horsham 0 Shoreham 1
Horsham had previously beaten Hove 6-0 in their first game and so Shoreham knew they needed a performance.
With a mix of great pressure tackling, positional kicking and solid team support play Shoreham did not let Horsham get into their stride and took advantage with a great try to secure the win.
This was a fantastic game of Rugby between two committed sides. Shoreham took control of the game with 2 brilliant tries but let themselves down with a phase of play where they forgot how to tackle resulting in Heathfield drawing the game at half time 2 – 2. Shoreham started the second half full of passion and soon took the lead again. In the last phase of play Heathfield went over in the corner to deny Shoreham a winning end to the tournament.
Shoreham deservedly finished in second place of the 5 teams
