Swans & N Dorset VS Dorchester
U14s Combined Game
Swans travelled to North Dorset to team up to play against Dorchester for a friendly.
Dorchester started the game on the front foot with some big tackles being put in, one of these tackles was performed by Zac, which ended his game due to concussion. The game carried on after a short break, for Dorchester to score the first try 5-0.
From the restart there was a braver defence from the combined swans team, unfortunately unable to stop Dorch scoring 2 more tries 15-0.
It was not all one way as the combined team put through several good phases of play for James to break through the centres to score underneath the posts 15-7.
This fired Dorch up to come back and score just before HT 22-7.
At HT subs were made to ensure everyone had a game. The combined team started the second half with more confidence, defended well and some brilliant charging runs by Troy and great footwork by Jonny to get the team into the Dorch half on numerous occasions.
One of these plays led to James scoring his second try 22-12.
This riled Dorch again for them to get the next try shortly after 29-12.
We almost shortened the points gap by Harry playing brilliantly at prop, but unfortunately got held up over the line.
Even through some more great defending and tackles, Dorch got through and scored the last try 36-12
Both teams were a credit to their clubs and worked well as a combined team...... Well done boys!!
