Brentwood are rivals for T's teen players
3:00pm Friday 12th October 2012 in Sport
RUGBY: THURROCK’S Under-16s made the short journey to Brentwood on Sunday for the Golden Boot tournment.
Tees first game was against the hosts B team and, although they were dominant throughout, they failed to breech the line and had to settle for a 0-0 draw.
In the second game Tees fell foul of the referee and playing shorthanded eventually cost then as Bury St Edmunds crossed on the last play of the day to secure victory.
Tees final chance was against Westcliff and they made an awful start – conceding two early tries.
But George Webb inspired a spirited recovery with a superb tackle in the offensive corner to change the tide and establish Tees with some territory.
They were unable to put points on the board, but the game started to now look competetive.
In the second half Westcliff did score once more, but Jamie Impey came up with what turned out to be a vital try. The final score was 7-21.
The try scored enabled Tees to finish above Brentwood and move onto a game against last season’s nemesis side Chingford.
