Whilst for many club sides in our age group the season has all but ended, our season continues. The Kent Cup Final vs Canterbury still awaits as we challenge for National Cup honours.
Following a hard fought victory at Old Albanians in the QF, we travelled away again to Southend for the SE Semi for another tense thriller. Sevenoaks started slowly and conceded 2 early tries to trail 12-0 and give further confidence to Southend and their supporters. An immediate try from the KO by Scottie on the wing settled our nerves. We struggled in the scrum with the referee more so than the opposition, but managed to impose some dominance in the 2nd half and build a lead on the score board. As the game wore on, we looked more confident and found space amid a strong Southend back line to build a score. We ran out relieved victors 39-28. Now onto the SE Final.....
It is still amazing to realise that this side have won a major County or regional title every season from U12s through U16s and another challenge awaits in the National Cup SE Final at Crawley RFC vs Worthing on 3 April 2016.
Oaks fans! Please come along for KO at 16.30 if you can make it?
