U9 v Midhurst 14th December 2014

Shoreham’s under 9’s continued where they left off last week.

Before playing Midhurst they were treated to novel and imaginative training exercises led by the host coaches. With the focus on tackling techniques and positioning both sides looked sharp and focused leading into their game.

Shoreham started brightly pressing the home side back with some very determined defence before breaking free to score three great tries. The home side responded well toward the end of the first half with two tries of their own.

Shoreham started the second half with renewed vigour using their earlier tackling practice to good effect quashing Midhurst attacks before mounting their own. The longer the game went on the more Shoreham dominated running with some excellent individual tries as well as scores that involved the work of the whole team.

The final score of 9-4 was a just reflection of the concentration and determination that Shoreham showed throughout.
