I was really pleased with the turnout, we had 15 children turn up which meant we nearly had 2 whole teams!
Our original schedule was to play Mullion first, followed by Porthleven. Neither team, however, turned up. These games have been rescheduled, so there are no points gained from them.
A different set of games were organised though, and we ended up playing 3 this evening.
Our first game was against Landewednack. This was a tricky game with us nearly conceding a try, but our defensive line was solid and did not let them through. Both teams worked hard in defence and no one could find a gap. This ended in a 0-0 draw.
Our second game was against Godolphin. For this game we played lots of our newer players, some of whom had never played a match before. They worked really hard in the first half, but conceded 3 tries. At half time we made some substitutions, adding some more experienced players to the mix. This worked well and helped us to score 2 well deserved tries: first from George Robinson-Masters, then from Joshua Trerise. We were not quite able to get a third try in the time we had left, and lost valiantly with 3-2.
Our last game was against Parc Eglos. Some children were tired by this point, but everyone's enthusiasm and spirit was in full swing. It was a very tight game, and it looked like we might have won, but we had 2 tries disallowed as they were dived over the line - in the rules of Touch Rugby it has to be placed over the try line. It was a tense match to watch - more like a tennis match than rugby! Neither side could get the definitive try though, and the game ended 0-0.
I want to say a huge well done to all the children that participated tonight. It was fantastic to see lots of girls joining in, as well as boys whose first sporting choice is not rugby. Well done to: George Robinson-Masters, Joshua Trerise, Kian Williamson, Madison Baynham, Amber Baynham, Daniel Jones, Fenella Jones, Thomas Booth, Finley Whelan, Brook Pascoe, Gracie Read, Kaitlin Ashton-Smith, Saxon Forbes, Luke Wynne and Bayley Burtenshaw.
