Rugby - Year 7s

The tournament started with Light Hall taking to the field against Arden, both teams were evenly matched but Light Hall took the tie with a couple of last minute tries from star man of the tournament Oscar B. In their second game we played a very good Coleshill outfit who made their dominance clear from the first whistle. However a strong rally from Light Hall in the second half saw the score line come within a few tries.

Light Hall had two teams in this tournament who played Arden as well in their first game a hard fought game saw Arden come out on top. However in their second game with Dylan B at captain saw a more even game against Alderbrook, unfortunately the visitors took the tie in the last couple of minutes with some strong running.  

As this was a sevens tournament both teams found themselves in the final. First up was the bowl final which saw Dylan B lead the team out to play Arden. This was a close contest in the first half with heavy tackles and hard running from each team. In the second half Arden started to pass the ball out wide leaving a free man on the wing to run in a brace of tries. The second of the finals saw Light Hall play Alderbrook in the plate final. This was an evenly matched game which couldn’t be separated by the 14 minutes and had to be played settled by a golden try. Alderbrook won the toss and decided to take the ball first, which they took advantage of scoring the game’s only try and winning the plate final.

The cup final was a spectacular finish to what was an amazing evening, it saw Arden take on Coleshill both teams performed very well in the group stages. The game was nip and tuck till the final minutes where Arden found some space on the wing to score their first try. Then some remarkable footwork by an Arden substitute to beat the last defender sealed the cup final.

Thank you again for all the schools who participated and parents who took their time out to watch the tournament. Another special mention to the Worcester Warriors coaches for coming down to help organise the event.
