U11 v Heathfield 7th December 2014

SHoreham U11 - 1Shoreham took on a strong Heathfield side after an extensive training session.

 

 

Heathfield are a fast team with excellent running skills so Shoreham’s tackling would have to be spot on. SHoreham U11 - 4

 

 

 

 

 

Excellent line speed and pressure kept Heathfield on the back foot when they had the ball and forced them into mistakes.

SHoreham U11 2

 

 

Shoreham used their direct running to gain ground and keep them within range.

This forward play eventually created gaps which the backs exploited to lead 2-0 at half time.

After the break Shoreham made a number of changes to use the large squad we are lucky enough to have, and despite the changes they limited Heathfield to only a few chances. Shoreham U11 - 3

 

The opposition did convert two of these, the last late on, but only after Shoreham had secured the match with a third try.

The final score of 3-2 didn’t really reflect Shoreham’s dominance but was a great game to watch and good practice for the season ahead.
