Great start to the season for Swans U11
Swan U11 put Blandford U11 to the sword
In the opening game of the season a determined U11 side put on a great performance against a plucky Blandford side. After 3 weeks of training the team put into practice much of what they had learnt and ran in 15 tries to 3.
For a side that rarely won last season it was a great result and was a brilliant all round team performance.
Success was born from a great defensive effort with multiple turnovers from Oscar Meaker Swans dominated possession.
Tackling was tenacious and Blandford were never able to settle and were forced to kick away possession. Swans took advantage of this by running the ball back at them with notable scoring efforts from Sam Bowen with 6 tries including a length of the pitch kick return. Other notable performances were from Zac on his debut who ran in three tries, strong running from Issac who also bagged 3, Finn who was strong in defence but also popped up with two scores and Oscar who played like Richie McCall constantly over the ball at the breakdown and scoring a try.
Although the scorers, mentioned above, finished off the trys it was a great team performance and with a third of the team making their playing debuts a great effort.
Player of the match was Samuel Bowen with 6 tries and more importantly a length of the pitch try saving tackle in the corner.
Rising star was Finn with 2 tries and a fantastic effort in defence and at the breakdown.
