In a second round Kent Cup match our U15s were faced with a very established team again - the Essex BaaBaas. The first team they played against in the festival a few weeks ago (resulting in 24 BaaBaas - 0 Sevenoaks).

In the longest match our U15s faced to date, (25mins each way with a 5 min break), the BaaBaas were surprised by the tackling skills and strong defence from the entire Sevenoaks team.   The girls' determination prevailed, resulting in 35 BaaBaas - 15 Sevenoaks).  This was also a fantastic opportunity for the girls to play uncontested scrums (first half) and contested scrums (second half).

Notably on the day was a fantastic breakaway, resulting in a try by Lucy Fitzmaurice.  Special mention also goes to our new girls  - Natasha, Rosa, Georgia, Josie - who, after only one or two training sessions got stuck in and held off many attacks from the BaaBaas.

A great display of TREDS values were demonstrated by the girls yet again - with the Club Junior Chairman making special reference of the strength of their determination and team spirit.  Well done to everyone who played.
