Cornwall U.18 girls put up a brave show against Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire U18 Girls 53-5 Cornwall U18 Girls

Report by NIALL Devenish.

Cornwall U18 Girls made the very long trip up to Banbury RFC in Oxfordshire for their first game of the season against the home team.

A very well organised Oxfordshire side put Cornwall under pressure from the outset and despite some spirited defence by the Cornish side started to work a healthy lead.

In attack Cornwall could not seem to find the fluency required and even after long periods of attack were unable to make much of a mark on the score board.

Cornwall started the second half brightly showing greater purpose in attack, managing a sustained period of pressure in the opposition 22. Following a great line break by Cornwall, Oxfordshire were penalised for deliberately killing the ball on their five-metre line resulting in one of their players being sin binned.

Cornwall used the extra player well to break down a stubborn defence and score their only try of the game.

The final score of 53- 5 did not reflect the effort and spirit the Cornish Girls showed, they were beaten by a good and well organised side, but never gave up.
