On a cloudy day Tewkesbury under 12’s played host to their nearest club Bredon .
1st 20 mins.
Tewkesbury started well dominating the scrums and break downs while Bredan had a slight upper hand in the backs . Because of this Tewkesbury opened the scoring with Sam Williams crossing the line for the opening try . Bredan how every responded straight away with some good passing down the line to score virtually from kick off catching Tewkesbury napping . Tewkesbury then responded through again the forwards and Joe Goodridge powering over to make the score 10-5 .
2nd 20 mins.
a few changes in the Tewkesbury side gave Bredan the upper hand and they took full advantage of this by running the ball at every opportunity putting Tewkesbury on the back foot . this eventually paid off when they crossed the line for a try then again before the period finished 15-10 to Bredan .
3rd 20 mins.
Tewkesbury again made changes to the good and the forwards took control and battled on down the field to force a scrum 5 meters out this gave Ellis Todd the chance to pick and go from the base to cross the line for his try 15-15 . Ellis was taken off at this point due to a knock . Tewkesbury had to re-shuffle and Bredan again took advantage of this and through some slick passing crossed the line again . The game now tense got good as Bredan pressured Tewkesbury and again crossed the line as some players started falling off tackles . this was’nt the end as Tewkesbury battled on for Charlie Kendrick to take advantage of a great drive by the forwards and pick and drive over the line . Unfortunately Tewkesbury ran out off time and Bredan came away as winners 25-20
