Shoreham U13’s earned themselves their first League 1 points of the season in their first home game against Heathfield.
The home side started like lions and took an early lead with some superb pressure deep in the opposition half which eventually led to a strong charging run and placing the ball behind the line.
Heathfield then established a strong control of the game with some disciplined forward pressure, winning scrum and line out ball too regularly and ended the half with 2 tries and a conversion to take a 12 – 5 lead into half time.
Another strong start to the second half from the opposition had Shoreham defending their line early on and that they did with typical commitment and character strength. Shoreham’s kicking game was a key defensive tactic throughout the game and eventually this turned to attack. A long kick into the opposition half was chased down by the Shoreham boys and after a couple of phases of play, the ball heroically won at the breakdown, was worked cleverly to allow the ball to be run in over for a try under the posts and a conversion to level the game.
