Hastings & Bexhill 8 – Shoreham 4
Eastbourne 1st 7 – Shoreham 5
A closely played match with excellent tagging from both teams. Victory was narrowly snatched from our grasps.
Scorers: Lexus 3, Oliver 1, Sam 1
Shoreham got off to a flying start taking the lead early on but Haywards Heath wasted no time in closing their defensive holes edging their way to a convincing win.
Scorers: Jack 1, Lexus 1, Oliver 1
Off the back of three defeats everyone on the Shoreham team was in high spirits and enthusiastically took to the field for the final match. Shoreham immediately took the initiative and scored a try within seconds of the kick off. Nothing could split the two teams from this point with tries being scored tit for tat. The consistency of excellent tagging & passing from Zacharias helped spur Shoreham on but alas Uckfield just took the lead on the last few plays.
Scorers: Harry 1, Jack 1, Lexus 1, Oliver 2, Richard 1
With Shoreham improving with every match we all hold our heads high. We will all take the fun had & experience gained from this well organised and enjoyable event to build for the future.
